Yamaha has revealed its new MT-10SP 2022 variant, which will sit above the standard MT-10 naked bike when it hits local showroom next year.

The new Yamaha MT-10SP is distinguished by Ohlins electronic suspension, braided brake hoses, as well as a unique ‘Icon Performance’ colour scheme and three-piece belly cowl.

Yamaha has yet to reveal pricing for its new MT-10 and MT-10SP variants, although a price increase is expected compared to the outgoing versions, which are currently available from $21,949 and $25,199, respectively.

Motivating the new Yamaha MT-10 is a familiar 998cc inline four-cylinder engine that now generates 122kW and 112Nm, up 4kW and 1Nm compared to its predecessor.

The updated powerplant has undergone a number of upgrades as it moves over to Euro5 emissions standards, which are said to give it stronger mid-range torque and improved fuel economy.

These changes include new lightweight aluminium forged pistons and off-set con rods, as well as heavily updated intake and exhaust systems that create a ‘deep and distinctive’ sound.

Styling has been tweaked with a new twin LED headlight signature and enlarged air ducts on both sides of the fuel tank cover. Yamaha has also adjusted the MT-10’s ergonomics to improve overall comfort.

For 2022, the MT-10 gains a Brembo radial brake master cylinder for improved feel, while the carry-over fully adjustable KYB suspension has undergone minor tweaks.

Critically, the new model features a six-axis electronics suite to provide lean-angle sensitive traction control and cornering ABS. These features can be toggled via a new 4.2-inch TFT dash.

The 2022 Yamaha MT-10 also gets an up/down quickshifter and variable speed limiter fitted as standard.
