The Yamaha show stand will feature the very latest 2019 Yamaha models and displays – with class leading machinery to be found in almost every segment from the race winning R-series Supersport models, our sport heritage and sport touring line-up and of course the award-winning MT range.
The radical new NIKEN the world’s first production Leaning Multi Wheeled motorcycle will also feature on the stand. Fitted with a modified version of the acclaimed CP3, 850cc, three-cylinder engine the new NIKEN utilises a revolutionary twin front wheel set up to provide dramatically increased front end grip for improved cornering and braking. With radical styling and a full suite of rider aids the NIKEN takes riding to a new level.
Topping the list of Sport Touring machinery on the Yamaha stand are the latest Tracer 900 and Tracer 900GT models and the latest version delivers even more comfort and style with its many changes to chassis and bodywork.
The MT range has shaken up the Hyper Naked segment with a unique combination of performance, style and value. The MT-10 has had a massive impact with its daring styling and seductive cross-plane CP4, 1000cc engine, while the three cylinder MT-09 has also proved to be a winner in the sales charts. Both MT-10 and MT-09 now have SP variants with the MT-09 SP offering an Ohlins rear shock absorber along with upgraded forks, exclusive paint and detailed finishing to give the ultimate three cylinder MT. And of course there is also the multi award winning MT-07 which received an update this year with improved suspension and new body with aggressive styling and better ergonomics
You can experience the range of MT models at Motorcycle Live 2018 by visiting the Dark Side MT Tour truck and booking onto the test rides which run from Door V3.1 in Hall 3.
For the performance riders, the track focussed R1M joins the award winning YZF-R1 to bring the latest track technology to the road and a riding experience that is very close to a real MotoGP bike.
New wave custom and retro enthusiasts who appreciate the more traditional machines are also in for a real treat at Motorcycle Live this year with the latest XSR700 and XSR900 on show as part of Yamaha’s Sport Heritage range. Offering a uniquely blend of style and performance the XSR machines have the same performance and handling as their MT stablemates but with an individual character and soul combined with timeless retro style.
There’s something for everyone in Hall 3 with the massive Yamaha stand and full display of bikes plus the popular Yamaha Retail Store packed with the latest clothing and apparel ranges. Surrounding the main stand, you will find the Yamaha Village with Nick Sanders, plus Yamaha partners including Silverstone Circuits, AMCA and Red Tread plus the FJ Owners Club.
And if all that wasn’t enough then head for the very special RACING display on the Yamaha exhibition unit where you will find a collection of very special racing hardware from my different disciplines.
