Why not try an MT on for size this weekend?

Published: 30 March 2018

If MCN’s recent road tests (and high acclaim for) Yamaha’s burgeoning range of naked MT models have whetted your appetite, this Bank Holiday weekend gives you the perfect opportunity to experience the bikes for yourself as number of Yamaha dealers are taking part in the MT Easter Demo Weekend. 

Starting on Friday, March 30 and ending on Monday, April 2, the weekend-long event gives you the chance to try every model in the 2018 range of nakeds, including the newly revamped MT-07, learner-friendly MT-125 and R1-powered MT-10 and MT-10 SP. 

In order to get a test ride, you must be aged 18 or over and have the relevant UK motorcycle licence for the bike in question. 

Alongside test rides, there is also a chance to experience the latest in Yamaha clothing, as well as the opportunity to win a newly released MT-09 SP, worth £8999.

If you’re in the market for a standard MT-09, this weekend could be the perfect time to pick one up. It’s available on PCP over 36 months at 8.9%APR. With a deposit of £1804.04, you’ll then pay 36 monthly repayments of £109 plus an optional final payment of £5053. 

Another new model for 2018 is the A2 licence-friendly MT-07, which has received its first major updates since its 2014 launch, gaining new suspension for better composure. 

This is also available over 36 months on an 8.9%APR PCP package, with a deposit of £1373.69 and further monthly repayments of £85 – only £10 more than the much smaller, 321cc MT-03. The optional repayment on this machine is a further £3154.  

Be aware that all PCP examples offered in the MT range are subject to a yearly mileage limit of 5000.
