2019 Yamaha MT-10MASTER 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. 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 motor features the very latest in engine design to create the ultimate high-performance street sportbike. Engine reliability is ensured with strong, lightweight forged pistons and carburized fracture-split connecting rods moving 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. And 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.Compact Stacked Transmission
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, which allows optimized engine placement in the frame for outstanding handling.
The ride-by-wire Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle (YCC-T®) system senses the slightest throttle input by the rider and instantaneously calculates the ideal throttle valve opening and fuel input. This technology contributes to the rider’s feeling of torque and controllability from the potent 4-cylinder engine.Refined D-Mode Mapping
Thanks to YCC-T, the MT-10 also offers D-Mode, which allows the rider to select a preferred engine response at the flick of a switch. Mode 1 provides the sharpest throttle response, Mode 2 offers a good all-around character, and Mode 3 offers the smoothest, most progressive throttle response.Adjustable Traction Control System
An advanced Traction Control System (TCS) assists the rider in managing traction on various road conditions by quickly modulating throttle opening, ignition timing, fuel volume and other parameters. TCS Level 1 is intended for sporty riding on clean roads, with Level 2 configured for normal street riding. Level 3 is tuned for wet roads and other low-traction situations. The TCS can also be disabled by the rider if they so choose.
The MT-10 uses an aluminum Deltabox frame derived from the YZF-R1 superbike to create a lightweight and responsive chassis built for agility, featuring an ultra-compact 55.1-inch wheelbase. The frame uses a strength-rigidity balance developed especially for the MT-10, and uses the engine as a stressed member of the frame for optimal cornering performance.
