Like with the smaller MT models, Yamaha has given the MT-10 revised styling rendering it a more aggressive look. The most notable is the addition of a new headlight design that resembles bug eyes with LED DRLs placed right above, like eyebrows. It’s an interesting-looking thing.
Autocar India reports that MT-10 continues to be powered by a cross-plane, inline-four engine but now features lightweight aluminum forged pistons, offset con-rods, and direct-plated cylinders. The engine is also now Euro 5 compliant, largely thanks to a new intake and titanium exhaust. Peak output figures are 164hp at 11,500 rpm and 82.6lb-ft of torque at 9,000, a slight bump over the previous generation model.
Electronics on offer include traction control, slide control, engine braking management, and wheelie control that work alongside a six-axis IMU. For 2022, Yamaha has also refined the ride-by-wire system and ride modes that you can now toggle via new switchgear.
The new 2022 Yamaha MT-10 will be available in Cyan Storm, Icon Blue, and Tech Black color schemes and will go on sale early next year. Currently, Yamaha has not announced pricing for the motorcycle, but we shall update this space when it does.
