What Is It?

The Yamaha MT-10 is a premium naked bike and is powered by a liquid cooled 998cc crossplane inline four engine, producing 158.2bhp at 11,500rpm and maximum torque at 9,000rpm.

Features include:

  • Aluminium frame derived from the R1 but with steel sub-frame
  • Dual 320mm discs up front with radial mount 2 piston calipers
  • Rear 220mm disc with 2 piston caliper
  • Adjustable 43mm KYB upside down fork with 120mm travel
  • Adjustable rear KYB shock with 120mm travel
  • Slipper clutch
  • 3 level traction control and ABS
  • 3 riding modes, changeable on the move
  • LED lighting all round
  • 12V outlet in the dash
  • 6 speed gearbox with gear position indicator

The engine differs from the R1 in having Steel connecting rods instead of Titanium, a different fuel injection system and the crankshaft has higher inertia to cope with the torque. It's more about low to mid range torque and power than the R1.

It's not quite an R1 minus the fairing though. The dashboard is only LCD unlike the fancy TFT dash of the R1, it doesn't have the 3-axis IMU tracking tech, the exhaust system is Steel rather than Titanium and in a similar vein the fuel tank is Steel rather than Aluminium.

However the MT-10 does get cruise control over the R1 which can be used in gears 4-6 at 30-110mph. The 17" 5-spoke wheels take a Bridgestone Battlax Hypersport 120/70 tyre at the front and 190/55 at the rear.

Accessories include the Akrapovic exhaust, quickshifter, screen, heated grips, side mounted semi-hard cases and comfort seat.

  • 2016-2018: Black with yellow wheels, black/blue with blue wheels, black with red front disc mounts, white with red wheels (2019)
  • 2020: Black, blue, white

2017: New quickshifter system and engine mapping updated to be a bit smoother. £11,650 Tourer edition gets you a tall screen, hand guards, comfort seat, GPS mount and soft ABS panniers. £13,400 MT-10 SP launched with Ohlins electronic suspension, TFT dash and special colour scheme.
