MASTER THE DARKNESS
The pinnacle of MT crossplane torque; distinct styling and agile handling that lets you dominate the darkness.
Features may include:
The potent 998cc inline 4-cylinder engine features the same Crossplane Crankshaft technology developed in Yamaha’s renowned YZF-R1® superbike. Tuned specifically for the MT-10™; this engine develops awesome low- and mid-rpm torque with arm-stretching top-end power.
The MT-10 features a range of systems powered by YCC-T®—a ride-by-wire throttle system that provides exceptionally precise engine control. D-Mode allows the rider to select a preferred engine response at the flick of a switch. The Traction Control System (TCS) assists the rider in managing rear tire traction on various road conditions while cruise control improves highway cruising comfort.
The potent 998cc inline 4-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.
The MT-10 motor'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.
The 6-speed transmission "stacks" the crankshaft; input and output shafts in a triangular layout to centralize mass and keep the engine shorter front-to-back; with optimal engine placement in the frame for outstanding handling.
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 55.1-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.
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 a tuning range ready for a wide range of street conditions.
The four-way-adjustable KYB® piggyback-style shock uses a rear bottom link pivot position that is strategically placed for optimal handling and excellent transmission of engine torque to the asphalt. Like the front fork; the MT-10’s rear suspension offers a wide range of adjustment and a smooth; well-controlled 4.7 inches of wheel travel.
