CP4' 4-cylinder crossplane engine
The 998cc liquid-cooled 4-cylinder engine features intake, exhaust and fuelling systems that contribute towards its strong low to mid range performance. With an uneven 270° - 180° - 90° - 180° firing sequence, this exhilarating crossplane engine delivers linear torque with instant response and precise control.
Electronic control technology
For the highest degree of rider control, the MT-10 is equipped with a Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle (YCC-T) as well as an easily adjustable Cruise Control system that operates above 50km/h. To suit different conditions the Yamaha D-MODE system offers three engine running modes - and a 12V DC outlet can accommodate various accessories.
Traction Control System (TCS), QSS, A&S clutch
The MT-10's switchable Traction Control System (TCS) features three intervention levels to ensure smooth roadholding in varying conditions. The Quick Shifter System (QSS) enables full throttle clutchless upshifts - and a compact Assist and Slipper (A&S) clutch gives you precise control during acceleration and deceleration.
Upright riding position and mass forward silhouette
The handlebar/seat/footrest relationship gives a slightly forward leaning riding position that enables you to make full use of the linear torque. And to emphasise its dynamic 'mass forward' looks, the MT flagship features compact side cowls with duct shaped covers as well as a shouldered fuel tank cover.
Short 1400mm wheelbase for ultimate agility
The MT-10 has a compact and lightweight chassis. For outstanding agility together with light and neutral handling this class leader features fine-tuned geometry settings and an ultra-short wheelbase of just 1400mm - making it one of the most compact in the 1,000cc class.
Lightweight aluminium Deltabox main frame and swingarm
The top of the range MT is equipped with a lightweight aluminium Deltabox main frame and extra-long upward truss type aluminium swingarm that features an optimized strength/rigidity balance. This design delivers class-leading handling with good straight line stability and lightweight agility.
