Dedicated SP colours
The SP’s dedicated colours link it directly to the R1M’s exclusive Icon Performance finish, while the levers, handlebars, drive sprocket, front fork and more have a black DLC coating. Moreover, the swingarm has an anodised brushed aluminium finish to elevate the premium, high-quality look and feel of the model.
Cruise control system
The SP’s best-in-class electronic rider aids include cruise control, enabling you to relax when cruising along the motorway. It can be set when riding at least 50 km/h and in 4th gear or higher. Cruise control settings are automatically removed upon applying the brakes or pulling the clutch or twisting the throttle. The 'resume' function reengages the system and returns the bike to its previous set speed.
Premium, fully adjustable suspension
The fully adjustable KYB front forks feature separate high and low speed compression damping that allows you to choose more detailed settings, and the 41mm tubes are given a DLC coating for excellent sliding characteristics and a high-quality appearance. The rear features an Öhlins shock absorber to give the MT-09 SP a class-leading suspension package.
Stylish contrasting stitching enhances the bike’s quality looks and feel, in addition to giving an instant feeling of fit once seated. The shapes of parts like the fuel tank and seat have been refined through repeated Kanno Hyoka – evaluating motorcycle performance based on test rider perceptions and feedback – to give you the feeling of being at one with the machine.
Swingarm with anodised brushed aluminium finish
The swingarm has an anodised brushed aluminium finish to elevate the quality look and feel. Alongside the crystal graphite finish on the frame, it brings out the pure mechanical beauty of the MT-09 SP’s compact aluminium chassis, to create intense pride of ownership.
6-Axis IMU plus lean-sensitive rider aids
