New member in Derbyshire
« on: August 31, 2021, 10:53:39 pm »
Iíve owned my MT01 for the past 4 years. Itís a 2005 model, 10500 miles, pretty much standard apart from a fly screen and aftermarket alloy reservoirs. It hasnít seen much use over the past 2 years as it shares my garage with Gen1 & Gen2 VMaxís plus a few Moto Guzziís that include a Griso 8V, a Rosso Corsa, & various V11ís. I do like big air cooled V twins. Iíve just MOTíd it & put it back on the road after being SORNed all of this year, & looking forward to riding it again in whatís left of summer/autumn. I rarely see any other MT01ís around where I live/ride, but as there are only 455 either on the road/SORNed in the UK, I suppose itís not surprising

Hello and welcome to the site. Looks like you've got a fair fleet of bikes :) This site has been quiet the last year or so as the guy running the server abruptly stopped and didn't hand over to anyone but numbers are slowly increasing again. There's also a few people from here migrated to Facebook but there are still quite a few die hard web lovers.

Cheers

Max

Nice bike. I'm also a fan of the Vmax  ;D and used to live out in Derbyshire. I miss those roads - being 5 mins away from Long Hill was always fun.

Hi, Gen 2 VMaxís are even rarer. Just 214 on UK roads, not many when you consider they were on sale for nearly 10 years. Some years their sales were virtually nonexistent. If you want to find a 2014 model for example, good luck - Yamaha sold 5 that year in the UK. They were still sold in the US market until the end of 2020

Interested in the MT01 On Road/Sorn figures.
Where did you get these from?
Cheers,
Graham.

Graham

Go to howmanyleft.co.uk
Search Yamaha MT01
Youíll see that during Q1 2021 (latest data available) there were 212 taxed and 243 on SORN
Itís a fascinating website. The figures are more accurate for a bike like the MT01, where thereís only a single variant. It gets more complicated where a model has a multiplicity of different versions that the manufacturer regularly updates / changes designations

For example, take a bike you see everywhere - the Beemer R1200GS. 5.4K on the road and 1.2K on SORN. Add to that the triple black version, then the Rallye TE version and so on Ö you get the idea.
Anyway itís hours of entertainment   :)

Thank you for your response,

I'll check it out for my Bulldog as well.

Cheers, Graham.
