Yamaha MT-10 SP (2017)
The 2017 MT-10 base model, Tourer Edition and SP all now features a quick shifter fitted as standard (something we shouted about when we went head-to-head with the BMW S1000R last summer), allowing for clutchless upshifts, as well as revised engine mapping offering smoother throttle characteristics tight through the already mighty rev range.
In addition, the headline additions on the SP model start with the upgrade to Ohlins electronic racing suspension, a full colour R1-M style TFT instrument panel (‘Thin Film Transistor’) and a special racing colour scheme known as Blue Silver Carbon.
The trick Ohlins system uses a Suspension Control Unit (SCU) which analyses data from a series of sensors allowing the suspension to react to the riding conditions, which the Swedish company claims offers ‘an optimal set-up at all times’. Even so, there are still five rider-settings; three automatic and two manual, which can be adjusted by the handlebar mounted switchgear and form part of the three pre-set riding modes. It’s both a clever and complex bit of kit that advances the options beyond the needs of any ‘regular’ road rider unless the bike is to be used on the same route or even track regularly.
