If you are not 100% on the Yamaha, then the triumph speed triple rs is a worthy alternative. Similar ish looks and performance

Looks are not for everybody, but I I'm in.

With the right exhaust that cross plane engine will keep you smiling for a long, long time.

Forget about fairings, hyper nakeds are the way forward.
Hi, there, my son has an MT07 and I rode it one day to bring for a service. I really loved it. Was so easy to manage. I am fairly heavy, so would need something bigger, and I was thinking MT09. Do you know if it is a similar 'feel' and easy to ride as MT07 ? I have a Busa, and want something a bit easier to manage

Mt09 is a different beast to the 07....personally just for the fun factor and usability I always find the 07 is the better bike.

I never rode the MT07 in fairness so I can't compare. But I can tell you that there's only 8kg difference in weight and about 40HP difference

So I'll imagine that if you think the MT07 is fun, the MT09 will have you giggling like a schoolgirl.

If you buy an "older" MT09, you might have to work the suspension a little bit as it comes quite soft from factory. But other than that, I can't say enough good things about the 09, freakin love it.

Cheers,
Rami

Motorbike: MT10
Default Re: Yamaha MT10

Anyone ever hear of a company not insuring a bike? Got quotes from all but Liberty is usually the cheapest for me by a long shot and they tell me they arenít insuring that bike full stop. Seems a bit odd as they gave me a quote on an R1 then for a 65 quid increase on what I pay now.

My MT10 dream may be dead in the water as Iím not paying the outrageous quotes Iím after receiving

How does she compare to the GS?

1) Wind protection
2) Seat comfort
3) Engine response etc.
