Hi all,

Soon to be owner of a mt09sp, I hope!! As soon as I recover from my broken arm... not bike related.

Currently own a 74 Norton Commando and a 79 Honda CBX1000.

Getting on now and need a lighter bike as the CBX weighs over 600lbs.

SP looks to fill all my needs, did think about a 790 Duke too and about 20 other bikes, hi again to all.


Classic 70's machines

I don't know of anyone who regretted buying an MT09, hope the arm heals quick so you can enjoy it.

Bought my Tracer for similar reasons, the GS was just getting heavier every year, or was I skipping the necessary gym sessions. 😉. I also thought about a KTM but I’ve had one before, nuff said. It’s a learning experience, even more than Ducati ownership.

You will love it, I was amazed at how much lighter than my FZ1 it is. It’s only a few kg heavier than my KH500 :D
