ADVANCED BRAKING SYSTEM2023 Yamaha MT 10 Matte Raven Black

With its R1 derived system featuring dual floating 320mm discs and 4-piston radial mounted calipers, the MT-10 SP is equipped with the most sophisticated braking package fitted to any production Yamaha. The new model benefits from a new Brembo radial front brake master cylinder for even more accurate feel and controllability, giving you the ultimate stopping performance.

RIDER-CENTRIC ERGONOMICS2023 Yamaha MT 10 Matte Raven Black

For improved comfort together with greater freedom in adopting different riding styles, the 2022 model’s ‘rider triangle’ – the bar/footrest/seat relationship – has been improved. The fuel tank cover is now smoother, giving a better feel when the rider grips the tank with their knees when braking or accelerating – and allows greater mobility when shifting weight for corners. The seat’s firmness has also been modified for greater comfort, and the seat design has been modified to give riders the ultimate connection with the bike.

Power 2023 Yamaha MT 10 Matte Raven Black

Nothing can match the thrill of the MT-10 SP’s 998cc EU5 CP4 engine. Its crossplane technology design gives an uneven firing sequence that delivers sensational torque for remarkable acceleration – and the latest model features a tuned intake system with larger intake ducts and tank-mounted Acoustic Amplifier Grilles that emit a deep roar for a spine-tingling experience as you open the throttle.
