Ray of Darkness

With its high levels of power, torque and agility, the MT-10 immediately established itself as the definitive one-litre naked performance bike. As well as offering extreme performance combined with an uncompromising attitude, its dynamic design has also reinforced the image of Yamaha's successful Hyper Naked line.

For 2017 this radical YZF-R1-derived model sees a number of upgrades to its already high specification, making it an even more impressive multi role motorcycle.

For faster clutchless upshifting when accelerating hard, the MT-10 is equipped with a new Quick Shift System (QSS). By momentarily cancelling drive torque when an upshift is detected, the QSS gives even more thrilling acceleration through the gearbox. The 2017 model also features revised engine mapping that gives smoother throttle characteristics from low to high rpm for more balanced performance.
