Yamaha has launched its new MT-10SP for 2017 with the bike getting as raft of higher-spec bits that are basically taken straight from the firm’s R1-M.

The big naked is getting the track bike’s Öhlins Electronic Racing Suspension (ERS), Thin Film Transistor (TFT) instrumentation and dedicated colouring (which will help it stand out from the current model, at least).

The MT-10 SP’s electronic suspension is controlled by a Suspension Control Unit (SCU), which analyses data from a series of sensors that monitor riding conditions. The SCU calculates the optimal compression and rebound damping settings for the prevailing conditions, and the system’s stepping motors instantly make adjustments to achieve the optimal suspension set up.

By constantly monitoring conditions and adjusting the settings while the bike is moving, the exclusive Öhlins Electronic Racing Suspension (ERS) gives the MT-10 SP rider access to the most technologically advanced electronic suspension to be featured on a Hyper Naked.

This new flagship of the Hyper Naked segment is equipped with high tech Thin Film Transistor (TFT) instrumentation that enables the rider to view and digest a wide of range information. This YZF-R1M type multi-function LCD meter gives a superior high definition display in full colour – and the rider can select dark or light backgrounds to suit daytime or nighttime riding.

The MT-10 SP is finished in a Silver Blue Carbon colour scheme that echoes the R1-M’s paint. It rocks.

2017 MT-10

For 2017 the YZF-R1-derived big naked gets a number of upgrades.

For faster clutchless upshifting when accelerating hard, the MT-10 gets a new Quick Shift System (QSS) which works by momentarily cancelling drive torque when an upshift is detected. The 2017 model also features revised engine mapping that gives smoother throttle characteristics from low to high rpm for more balanced performance.
