The Dark Side of Japan never sleeps. It’s the inspiration behind every Yamaha MT. And the exclusive MT-09 SP is the latest masterpiece to emerge from the Darkness. Featuring exclusive R1M-inspired colours as well as premium suspension and Cruise Control, the ultimate 3-cylinder Hyper Naked is ready to inspire and excite.
Challenge the Darkness
Its 889cc EU5 CP3 engine produces even more linear torque at lower rpm for awesome acceleration – while its R1-type 6-axis IMU and lean-sensitive electronic rider aids give you precision control in the wet and dry. And with fully adjustable 41mm front forks and a high specification Öhlins rear shock, the all-new chassis is sharper than ever.
As well as the exclusive Icon Performance colours the MT-09 SP comes equipped with a special double stitched seat for the ultimate fit – and the brushed anodized swingarm, anodized black handlebars and levers and clear-smoked brake reservoirs add to the model’s premium looks and feel.

Back in 2013 Yamaha changed the landscape of the motorcycle world with the introduction of the original MT-09. With its sharp focus on linear torque, lightweight agility and brutal naked looks, the bike was an instant success. Over the next decade the MT Hyper Naked range grew rapidly – and to complete the line-up, the exclusive SP model was created.
