About the 2019 Yamaha MT-10

Influence from the R1 is evident in the MT-10’s powerplant. Yamaha’s Crossplane Crankshaft tech finds its way into the MT’s engine along with a slipper clutch and Yammy’s “Exhaust Ultimate Power” valve. The oversquare engine runs a 79 mm bore and 50.9 mm stroke with a total displacement of 998 cc. Lightweight forged pistons and fracture-split connecting-rod ends make up the reciprocating components in the bottom end with dual over-head cams to time the 16-valve head, four per cylinder.

Compression is lower than the R1, but the 12-to-1 ratio will still have you at the expensive pump if you want to avoid preignition/detonation/dieseling. The 12-liter airbox and 12-hole injectors boost induction, and Yammy’s YCC-T throttle control works with the traction control and rider modes to deliver seamless, controllable power. That’s a good thing since this beast cranks out 160.4 horsepower at 11,500 rpm with 81.8 pounds o’ grunt at an even 9 grand, and most of us could probably benefit from a little (or a lot) of help keeping that all under control.
