    Short 1400mm wheelbase for ultimate agility

    The MT-10's compact and lightweight chassis is developed from the award winning YZF-R1 design. 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.

    Radial brake calipers with ABS equipped as standard

    The MT-10 is designed to excel in every category, including braking performance. Dual 320mm floating front discs are equipped with radial 4-pot opposed piston calipers that generate immense stopping power with precise fingertip control - while a 220mm rear disc provides plenty of feel. ABS is featured as standard.

    Fully adjustable front and rear suspension

    Based on the YZF-R1 suspension, the fully adjustable 43mm cartridge-type front forks and link-type Monocross rear suspension systems are some of the most advanced designs in the naked one-litre category. Featuring model-specific settings, this race-bred suspension gives excellent handling precision and riding comfort.

    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 YZF-R1 developed design delivers class-leading handling with good straight line stability and lightweight agility.

    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.

    CP4' 4-cylinder crossplane engine

    The 998cc liquid-cooled in-line YZF-R1-derived 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.

    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 emphasis its dynamic 'mass forward' looks, the MT flagship features compact side cowls with duct shaped covers as well as a shouldered fuel tank cover.
