Yamaha have announced fresh updates for the 2024 MT-09SP, with the limited edition model carrying over tweaks to the standard offering, as well variant specific changes. These include changes to the main switch and fuel cap design.
A new fully adjustable Öhlins rear shock with remote preload and compression damping features, along with Brembo Stylema callipers (with larger dimension pistons) and unique Yamaha Ride Control settings to maximise the performance of the 890cc CP3 engine.
Riders can choose from Sport, Street and Rain modes, with the option to fine tune two further custom settings. The MT-09SP adds Track modes, which can be set to four different patterns. These allow for more refined, specialised settings.
Among them are the option of choosing between two engine brake settings, and the ability to alter the level of brake control. Additionally, riders can turn the rear ABS off. Each can be altered on the dashboard or using the free MyRide smartphone app.
The on-track riding experience is further enhanced by a dedicated SP-exclusive Track theme for the new 5.0-inch full colour TFT display, offering information such as a lap timer and other track focused details.
SP-exclusive premium suspension, front and rear, brings super sport-level handling and precision. The gold-finish “diamond-like-carbon” coated, 41mm KYB fork and Öhlins monoshock feature a higher spring rate, for outstanding stability.
The KYB unit offers full adjustability for preload, re-bound and compression damping too. The 2024 MT-09SP becomes the first hyper naked to feature Yamaha’s smart key, allowing the bike to be started with the turn of a switch.
Featuring a lock and unlock option for the fuel tank cap, the switch further simplifies the riding experience. The new bike will be offered in an exclusive silver, black and Yamaha Racing Blue Icon Performance livery.
Delivery dates to Australian dealers and prices are yet to be announced.
