Yamaha MT-10 Specifications and Pricing Revealed

The Yamaha MT-10 was revealed officially at the EICMA in Milan in November 2015. Now, Yamaha has confirmed the price and specifications of the MT-10. It is the latest addition to the naked MT range which also features the MT-03, MT-07 and the MT-09. The new MT-10 is based on the current YZF-R1.


The Yamaha MT-10 has a four-cylinder cross-plane engine that is derived from the 2015 YZF-R1. The MT-10 is tuned for a low and mid-range torque. The 998cc engine generates a peak power of 160.4hp and a peak torque of 111Nm. The torque generated is the same as the YZF-R1, but it is much lower in the rpm range, at 9000rpm instead of 11,000rpm.

The riding position of the MT-10 is upright. The frame is based on the Deltabox frame of the R1. This gives the MT-10 the shortest wheelbase in its class at 1400mm which should give it good handling and agility. The suspension is derived from the YZF-R1. The suspension setup features twin forks at the front and a monocross suspension at the rear. The brakes use a four-pot radial-mounted calipers on the 320mm front discs. The rear gets a 220mm single disc. ABS is standard on the MT-10.


The Yamaha MT-10 gets five-spoke aluminum wheels, a 17 liter fuel tank and a LCD instrumentation panel. The electronics on the MT-10 include switchable traction control with three levels, three riding modes, an assist and slipper clutch and cruise control. The MT-10 has a claimed wet weight of 210 kg. The MT-10 will cost $14,120 (ex-showroom). It is due to launch in the month of April or May 2016.
