Topping the list of new machinery in the RACE zone will be the cutting edge new 2017 YZF-R6 which bristles with the latest technology including 6-level traction control and quickshifter. The specification of the new R6 takes this race winning Supersport machine to a new level with R1 type 43mm front forks and radial mounted brakes, while the M1 style bodywork and other chassis changes improve the aerodynamics and rider control to create the most advance 600cc sports bike that we have ever built.
And for the ultimate track machines the exclusive R1M and the award winning YZF-R1 are on show in their new for 2017 livery bringing genuine MotoGP technology to the road and a riding experience that is very close to a full MotoGP bike. Compare them for yourself as Valentino Rossis M1 is also on show.

The new for 2017, MT-10 SP joins the award winning MT-10 on the stand and is fitted with the latest Ohlins Electric Racing Suspension system and a host of other upgraded parts – it’s the R1M of the MT range!
But it was the three cylinder MT-09 that led the way with the new MT range and won a place in many riders hearts when it was introduced. And for 2017 the latest MT-09 gets a full makeover with updated styling, a new twin headlight face, revised suspension, plus engine changes that include the fitting of the latest Asist & Slipper clutch, while the multi award winning MT-07, plus MT-03 and MT-125 will all be on show too ensuring that there is an MT to suit every rider.
