We believe that the name of the European MT Tour leaves nothing to guessing, but here are the facts, anyway. The 2016 European MT Tour is an ample roadshow aimed at popularizing the "Dark Side of Japan," Yamaha's marketing concept behind the MT family.

The 2016 European MT Tour will be visiting major cities throughout Europe showcasing the MT machines, from the entry-point ones to the top of the range, introducing the public to the new Yamaha range. Among the bikes that will be touring Europe, Yamaha included the new MT-10, the all-new MT-03, and the latest MT-09 equipped with traction control system.

Even new riders will be able to get a full taste of Yamaha's MT machines, as House Iwata will have the MT-125, MT-03 and the A2, 35 kW version of the MT-07 at hand. Stunt shows, live demonstrations, parties, and giveaways are also part of the 2016 European MT Tour.

This year's Tour is not only larger than the one from last year but this time, the French helmet specialist Shark will also be joining in. With more than 50 stops in 10 European countries and different Shark helmets available for each stop, the 2016 European MT Tour promises to be an even more inclusive, revealing experience.

Certain Shark helmets are being offered for testing with specific Yamaha models. It's the case of Shark Raw, which has been linked to the Yamaha MT-09, Shark Vancore, which is paired to the MT-125. Also, Shark will also have the amazing LED-enhanced Skwal helmet to satisfy the curiosity of the attending riders.
