Yamaha announce new MT-10 SP and SCR950, extra punch for the MT-09 at Intermot

Yamaha have joined other manufacturers today in updating their model range at Intermot, as well as releasing a new model to the UK market.


New MT-10 SP

MT-10 SP

Yamaha’s MT-10 has received an upgrade at Intermot, incorporating features from the YZF-R1M to create the new SP. Featuring Öhlins Electronic Racing Suspension (ERS), Thin Film Transistor (TFT) instrumentation and a paintjob unique to the SP, a striking silver/blue/carbon, it’s a strong contender for the most-wanted super-naked of 2017.




The MT-09 was introduced in 2013 and was a massive hit – 2017’s update is more than just cosmetic. While the headlights mirror those of the popular MT-10, the updated rear end also sets the newer model apart. The floating rear hugger adds a distinctive look, in addition to new running lights in the sharp new headlight unit.

Yamaha’s Assist & Slip (A&S) clutch and Quick Shift System (QSS) are also fitted on the new MT-09 as standard.


New SCR950


Based heavily on the XV950, the SCR950 was released across the pond earlier this year, and Intermot sees it coming to the UK market too. Scrambler-inspired, with wide handlebars, spoked aluminium rims and a colour scheme reminiscent of the sports trackers of the 1980s, it’s a gorgeous new addition to the Yamaha stable. This V-twin also features a belt-drive, borrowed from the larger cruiser-style XV. Available in red and black, keep an eye out for it at Fowlers in 2017!


Triumph announce cafe racer-inspired Street Cup and new 900cc T100 models at Intermot

With their release of the new Street Twin earlier this year, Triumph are certainly not resting on their laurels, and the release of three new T100 bikes at Intermot will only help to draw more riders to the retro-inspired side. The Street Cup, a gorgeous cafe racer-inspired version of the new 900cc T100 range, features an exclusive bullet seat, dropped Ace bars, a seat cowl and colour-matched flyscreen.

The standard T100 has also benefitted from a refresh, available in an all-black colourway as well as the classic blue or orange, and white paint scheme. Triumph’s accessory range is also next-to-none, with over 150 parts available to truly make your Triumph your own.


Based on the Street Twin platform, an A2 restriction kit is now also available, meaning that A2 riders now have the option to own one of the hottest, most stylish looking bikes around. orange-t100

Suzuki announce new GSX-R1000R, GSX-S750, V-Strom 650 and GSX-R125 at Intermot

Suzuki have announced a glut of new bikes at today’s Intermot event, including a brand-new and long awaited GSX-R125 for the learner market.

New GSX-R1000 and GSX-R1000



Designed using expertise from Suzuki’s Moto GP history, the brand new GSX-R1000 and 1000R models utilise an all-new 999.8cc inline four-cylinder engine, which uses Suzuki Racing Variable Valve Timing (SR-VVT). Suzuki have also introduced three rider modes in these models, and their Motion Track Brake System.

Setting the GSX-R1000R apart from the GSX-R1000 is the addition of a bi-directional quick-shifter and a launch control system that allows riders to make smoother, faster starts. Both models utilise Suzuki’s Motion Track Brake System, but only the GSX-R1000R benefits from its cornering ABS function.

The GSX-R1000 is scheduled for arrival in spring 2017, with the GSX-R1000R set for a launch later in the season.


New GSX-S750


Following the launch of the GSX-S1000 last year, which is powered by the revered GSX-R1000 K5 engine, Suzuki has added a new GSX-S750 to its naked street bike lineup, this time using the same engine architecture as the K5 power-plant from the iconic GSX-R750. Also included is a three-mode traction control and easy-start system, as seen on Suzuki’s larger-capacity bikes.

The new GSX-S750 is expected to launch in early spring 2017.


V-Strom 1000 and V-Strom 1000XT


Suzuki’s touring powerhouses have been updated this year, with the 1000 receiving a host of improvements, and the introduction of a brand-new XT version too. In addition to some styling changes, both models now utilise Suzuki’s Motion Track Brake System. The styling changes extend to a new screen for both models, as a result of extensive wind-tunnel testing to improve aerodynamics and rider comfort. A new champion Yellow colourway is also introduced, with gold anodised rims reminiscent of the 1980’s Dakar racers.

Both models are expected for spring 2017.


V-Strom 650 and V-Strom 650XT

The V-Strom 650 has been a strong contender in the adventure market since its introduction in 20045, and it continues to be a favourite, with some fantastic improvements this year. The intorduction of an XT model in the 650 class as well as the 1000 gives riders more choice, and the new Champion Yellow colourway is available too. Suzuki’s proven 645cc V-twin engine has been given more power and torque in the 2017 upgrade, increasing its output to 70bhp at 8,800rpm and 62Nm or torque at 6,500rpm.

The XT models comes with more accessories as standard, including wire-spoke wheels, lower cowling and hand guards.

Both models are expected to be available from spring 2017.


Brand new GSX-R125


Suzuki are also introducing a brand-new 125cc sportsbike, for younger fans of the iconic GSX series. Competing with sportsbikes from Honda and Yamaha, Suzuki have introduced some unique features, such as a keyless start, present on the GSX-R1000 currently. With the styling and presence of Suzuki’s larger sportsbikes, it’s sure to be a popular choice. A light, slim chassis and low seat height will make this a sure favourite. LCD instrumentation and running lights complete the new GSX-R125’s modern styling.

This much-awaited model will be available at dealerships in summer 2017.
