Back in Q1 of last year, one of BMW’s collaborations had a snazzy S 1000RR LEGO® set gracing toy shelves across the country. Now’s it’s Yamaha’s turn – and they’ve chosen their flagship hyper naked sports bike for the honors.
One of the big differences between Yamaha’s OG MT-10 and the SP variant is the Öhlins suspension duty; thanks to this new power duo partnership, the SP’s gold forks are beautifully shown off in this new LEGO® Technic™ set.
The best part for me, though, has to be the fact that LEGO’s choice of componentry allows working steering, as well as a mobile chain drive, 4-cylinder engine, 3-speed transmission, and floating duties – 1,478 pieces in all, folks.
This is the real deal.
Other working perks of this 25cm x 44cm x 15cm build:
- shifting drum
- shift fork
- shift ring
- tensioner drum
