New 2022 model line-up gets exclusive UK launch at the show
After an absence from UK bike shows in 2021, Yamaha have chosen the Carole Nash MCN London show to debut their impressive 2022 new model line-up. With no less than FIVE all-new new machines on display and NINE updated models the Yamaha stand will be a highlight of the show. The 2022 MT-10 and MT-10SP have been dramatically improved with aggressive stripped down styling, a host of new electronic rider aids and a more ergonomic riding position.
The motor has been refined for a ‘road focused’ delivery and the SP version is the first machine to be fitted with Ohlins latest Gen-2 electronically controlled ‘semi-active’ suspension. A system that can adjust settings automatically according to road conditions. The 2022 XSR900 and TMax Tech Max are also UK debuts in London with the XSR getting its 890cc engine, chassis and electronics from the sublime MT-09, plus styling inspired by the iconic 1980s era Yamaha Grand Prix machines. The TMax Tech Max sports scooter receives sharper styling plus better ergonomics and passenger comfort.
Alongside Yamaha, a host of other manufacturers have chosen the London show to debut new models including Ducati who will be unveiling the spectacular DesertX, a Ducati with true off-road ability inspired by the African Rally.
The full line-up of manufacturers confirmed so far include: Artisan Electric, BMW, CCM, Ducati, Honda, Indian Motorcycle, Kawasaki, Langen Motorcycles, Lex Moto, Suzuki, Triumph & Yamaha
