MT-07 SP?

Recommended Posts

mjh937

I was looking at a website with EICMA photos and they mention there were SP versions of the MT-07 and MT-09 announced.  I cannot find any info about them.  Has anyone else heard this?  I know there is an MT-10 SP.  (It still feels odd not typing FZ.)

It looks like the article I saw was not very clear and the SP variant is only the -09 and -10.  Maybe next year there will be a MT-07 SP.

I think , from the specs the "SP" possibly stands for Schrodinger's Projection-

In the specs it says-  698 AND 689cc, also 182 and 164 kg. You don't get to see which ones they are until you observe the bike and collapse the reality.

 

"Mass forward design"????????? Maybe it HAS got the longer swingarm . Hopefully that would be "mass in the right place" design rather than the current "mass rearward". If you have ever ridden the 70's "mass forward bikes , you won't be hanging out for that design philosophy. Or maybe it means that YOU have to put your mass forward?

Following the scheme for the SP introductions to 09 and 10, there could be an MT-07SP a year from now.
