Yamaha unveils the MT-10 SPPosted On: November 25, 2021 By : Ashmita KC
Yamaha has recently taken the wraps off its highly anticipated top-tier sports bike: the 2022 MT-10 SP.
The new MT-10 SP has a super-naked look with exclusive SP styling and gets a polished swingarm and colour-matched lower fairing.
The front features a combination of twin-eye mono-focus LED headlamps and LED position lights, and at the rear the bike gets full LED tail lights and turn signals.
The MT-10 SP gets a crossplane crankshaft engine–derived from Yamaha’s R1 superbikes–that minimizes the inertial engine torque and provides maximum-traction and linear torque feel.
Powering the new MT-10 SP is a 998cc, liquid-cooled, 4-cylinder, 16-valve, DOHC engine–mated to six-speed gearbox–that generates a power of 122 kW and a torque of 112 Nm.
The model also comes with an intake system (tuned for sound and performance), high-capacity cooling system, and assist-and-slipper clutch.
The bike comes with a plethora of advanced features such as premium 4.2-inch full-colour TFT display, Quick Shift System (QSS), ride-by-wire throttle with APSG, four-mode Yamaha Ride Control, Yamaha Variable Speed Limiter (YVSL), and cruise control. Furthermore, the bike comes with a six-axis IMU (with rider aid) that includes features like traction control, Slide Control System (SCS), front-wheel Lift Control System (LIF), Engine Brake Management (EBM), and Brake Control (BC) system with lean sensitive ABS.

For braking, the bike gets Yamaha’s advanced Braking Control (BC) system that features ABS, braided steel brakes, and other high-specification braking components such as radial-mount, four-piston front calipers, sintered brake pads, larger 320mm front discs, and 220mm rear disc.
