Yamaha unveils the MT-10 SP

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.

Tyres, brakes, and suspension 

The MT-10 SP is the first production bike to get Ohlins’ electrically controlled semi-active suspension system. The new suspension system allows riders to choose among six different riding modes (three semi-active damping modes: A-1, A-2, and A-3 and three manual setting modes: M-1, M-2, M-3).

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.
