MT-10 Model Information

The MT-10 Tourer Edition shares all of its technical features with the MT-10, as detailed in the following sections.

MT-10 Engine

YZF-R1-based engine tuned for strong and linear torque

The MT-10 engine has been developed directly from the latest YZF-R1's 998cc in line 4-cylinder 'CP4' crossplane engine that is widely regarded as one of most advanced and exciting designs in its class.

To best suit the requirements of the Hyper Naked class, the engine features a number of significant technical changes that are designed to deliver stronger low to mid speed torque, including specially designed intake, exhaust and fuelling systems, as well as an optimized crank balance. A number of model-specific settings have also been adopted in order to enhance the direct and connected feeling between the throttle and the rear wheel that is associated with the crossplane design.

Yamaha D-MODE, YCC-T Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle

Yamaha D-MODE offers the rider a choice of three engine running modes that are designed to suit different riding situations and conditions. The key to its operation is the sophisticated electronic package in the YCC-T that can instantaneously alter the engine character by adjusting throttle opening, ignition timing and fuel injection volume.

Traction Control System (TCS) & Quick Shifter System (QSS)

The Traction Control System enables the MT-10 rider to maintain traction on varying surfaces, making the Tourer Edition ideally suited to longer trips.

The TCS works by monitoring any slippage in the rear tyre, and when this is detected the YCC-T automatically controls throttle opening, ignition timing and fuel injection volume to restore rear wheel traction for increased control.

The MT-10 also benefits from a Quick Shifter System (QSS) that enables the rider to perform full throttle clutchless upshifts, giving remarkable standing start and roll-on acceleration.

Assist and Slipper (A&S) clutch

The MT-10's advanced A&S clutch is similar to that used on the new generation YZF-R1, and its compact and sophisticated design offers a number of advantages to the rider when accelerating and decelerating. Together with the enhanced comfort and functionality provided by the Tourer Edition package, the smooth and light A&S clutch makes this Hyper Naked model the perfect choice for those riders who experience heavy traffic on their daily commute to work.

Cruise control

The MT-10 Tourer Edition has been developed for riders who are looking for a high performance Hyper Naked that is equipped for longer trips. Cruise control is fitted as standard on the MT-10 and can be activated in 4th, 5th and 6th gears between 30mph and 110mph.
