Tuned to produce an even more sensational feeling of torque for the most thrilling experience, the new MT-10 is the most advanced Hyper Naked ever built by Yamaha. Manufactured using cutting-edge engine and chassis technology from the R1, the latest MT-10 gives you more power, more agility and more feel.
The King of the MT lineup demands total respect, and the first thing that’s going to grab your attention is the compact new headlight assembly and restyled tank that highlight the MT-10’s outstanding mechanical beauty. And the moment you hear the 998cc CP4 engine’s deep intake roar coming out of the air intakes, you’ll know that this bike is the one for you.
Hidden deep in the lightweight Deltabox chassis is the most sophisticated package of electronic rider aids, designed to give you the highest degree of controllability. With adjustable high-tech systems that control traction, slides, wheelies, engine braking and braking, you can make your MT-10 behave exactly the way you desire.
With its R1 derived system featuring dual floating 320mm discs and 4-piston radial mounted calipers, the MT-10 is equipped with the most sophisticated braking package fitted to any production Yamaha. The new model benefits from a Brembo radial front brake master cylinder for even more accurate feel and controllability, giving you the ultimate stopping performance.
For faster and more efficient acceleration the MT-10 is fitted with a Quick Shift System (QSS) as standard. This electronic system enables you to perform full throttle clutchless upshifts, as well as smoother and more controlled clutchless downshifts that – along with the A&S clutch – help to maintain chassis stability when decelerating.
Hidden inside a little black box is a 6-axis Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) that senses pitch, roll and yaw, as well as forward/backward, up/down and left/right acceleration. The ECU then uses this data to activate the high-tech rider aids package, including traction control, Slide Control (SCS) wheelie control (LIF) engine braking (EBM) and brake control (BC) that ensure the ultimate setup on every ride.
For more relaxed and enjoyable riding the MT-10 comes equipped with a cruise control system that can be activated in 4th, 5th and 6th gears above 50km/h. A switch on the left handlebar turns the cruise control on or off. A new feature added on the new MT-10 is the Yamaha Variable Speed Limiter (YVSL) that gives the rider the ability to set a top speed limit to suit various situations. This ensures that public road speed limits are not accidentally exceeded.
Derived from the class-leading R1, the aluminium Deltabox chassis is one of the lightest, strongest and sharpest handling designs in any category. Developed to handle 200bhp, this high-tech frame uses the CP4 engine as a fully stressed member to keep weight to an absolute minimum. Equipped with a long aluminium swingarm but with a compact wheelbase of 1405mm, the Deltabox chassis delivers stable, light and agile handling in a wide variety of low and high speed conditions.
The new MT-10 has a completely new look with a more integrated feel that gives a more minimalist and imposing appearance. Compact new twin-eye mono-focus LED headlights with separate high and low beam units provide excellent illumination and project a powerful and even beam with softer light at the edges. LED position lights are situated above the headlights, and the new nose assembly transforms MT-10 with a more refined yet dominant look. Mounted on both sides of the fuel tank cover, the enlarged ducts increase intake efficiency and contribute significantly towards the increased power output of the engine.
Nothing can match the thrill of the MT-10’s more powerful 998cc CP4 engine. Its crossplane technology design gives a unique uneven firing sequence that delivers sensational torque for remarkable acceleration – and the latest bike features a tuned intake system with larger intake ducts and tank-mounted Acoustic Amplifier Grilles that emit a deep roar for a spine-tingling experience as you open the throttle.
The MT-10’s advanced suspension system uses optimised model-specific settings that are designed to provide precise handling and confident road holding, whether in busy urban streets or powering hard through a set of bends in the mountains. The 43mm fully adjustable KYB front forks offer 120mm travel and can be set up to match personal riding preferences. These high specification forks are complemented by a fully adjustable KYB rear shock that can be easily dialled to handle varying loads and riding styles.
A new titanium exhaust features a newly designed titanium downpipes and muffler. Like the new tuned intake, the exhaust has been designed to emit a deep and distinctive sound that emphasises the bike’s uneven firing sequence. At lower engine speeds the exhaust sound is dominant, while the tuned intake roar takes over from mid to high revs to create a wall of sound that heightens the thrilling acceleration and torque rich performance of the more powerful engine.
The next evolution of the MT-10 comes fully equipped with an R1 derived 4.2in full-colour TFT display that features a clear and easy to read screen with all the key information on view. A menu switch on the right handlebar enables the rider to select which information displayed, while the ‘Mode/Select’ switch on the left side of the handlebar can be used to change
the intervention levels of the electronic rider aids, or where applicable, to turn them on or off.
