2022 Yamaha MT-10
THE DARKEST ENERGY
The pinnacle of MT crossplane torque, distinct styling and agile handling lets you dominate the Darkness.
Features may include:
- R1-Derived Crossplane Crankshaft Engine
The potent 998cc inline four-cylinder engine features the same Crossplane Crankshaft technology developed in Yamaha’s renowned YZF-R1 superbike. The crossplane design nearly eliminates inertial engine torque to provide a direct connection between the throttle and rear wheel for maximum traction and linear torque feeling. Tuned specifically for the needs of the high-performance street rider, the MT- 10 engine develops awesome low- and mid-rpm torque with arm-stretching top-end power.
- Ultra-Modern Engine Design
The MT-10’s engine design creates the ultimate high-performing street sportbike. Engine reliability is ensured with strong, lightweight forged pistons and carburized fracture-split connecting rods that move through an extremely rigid, closed-deck cylinder block. The engine’s cylinders are slightly offset to reduce friction losses, with plated bores for excellent heat dissipation and cylinder sealing. The rocker-arm valve actuation utilizes the lever ratio of each rocker arm to allow for larger valve lifts while using lower camshaft lobes and reduced spring pressure, further boosting power and efficiency.
- Deltabox Aluminum Frame
The MT-10 uses an aluminum Deltabox frame derived from the YZF-R1 superbike to create a lightweight and responsive chassis that is built for agility with its ultra-compact 55.3-inch wheelbase. The frame uses a strength-rigidity balance that was developed specifically for the MT-10 and uses the engine as a stressed member of the frame for optimal cornering performance.
- Fully Adjustable KYB® Fork
The MT-10 features an inverted 43mm KYB® front fork which offers full adjustability and 4.7 inches of travel, for excellent front-end feel and road holding along with an adjustment range ready for a variety of street or track conditions.
- New Improved Ergonomics
Ergonomics are enhanced on the new MT-10 for greater comfort and control. Protruding areas around the fuel tank are reduced offering more freedom of movement and better feel when the rider grips the tank with their knees under hard braking or cornering. The ‘rider triangle’—the bar/footrest/seat relationship—is improved with the hip position lowered for a feeling of sitting more within the bike. Additionally, seat firmness is modified to further enhance comfort.
- High-Performance Full LED Lighting
New twin-eye mono-focus LED headlights and LED position lights situated above the headlights combine with a more compact nose assembly to minimize overhang and lend a refined, dominant style. Separate high and low beam units provide excellent illumination and project a powerful, even beam with softer light at the edges. There is also a redesigned LED tail light and LED turn signals.
