Yamaha updates the MT-10 for 2022 Next year's MT-10 and MT-10SP will have more power and a new look. Even though we haven't seen any photos of the 2022 MT-10 yet, it's likely to look different from the 2021 MT-10 (MT-10SP pictured).

In 2022, Yamaha will launch the MT-10 and MT-10SP with a significant set of revisions, including new styling and a more powerful version of the four-cylinder engine from the R1.


Despite the lack of any pictures of the new model, we have seen documents confirming its key specifications, which have been sufficiently modified to earn it a new internal designation code. As far back as its original launch in late 2015, the MT-10—which went under the name FZ-10 in the USA until 2017—has gone under the internal code name “RN45″ inside Yamaha; the base version is the RN45 A, while the SP model with Öhlins electronic suspension is the RN45 B. For 2022 that changes with the new MT-10 and MT-10SP, which are designated “RN78 A” and “RN78 B” respectively.

The specs we've seen indicate that the 2022 MT-10's base and SP versions will still differ in their equipment rather than their performance, as both machines will have the same engine specification. Despite being the same 998cc four-cylinder as the YZF-R1's engine and featuring the same, distinct, V-4-style firing interval, the MT-10's engine has been updated for 2022 to boost performance.

The current model has 158.2 bhp, or 118kW, delivered at 11,500 rpm and 81.9 pound-feet of torque at 9,000 rpm. In 2022, those figures rise to 163.6 bhp (122kW) and 82.6 pound-feet of torque, both at the same top speed. One of the changes is definitely a new exhaust with different mufflers, which could be a major contributing factor to the improved performance. The 2022 model has an increased top speed, previously rated at 152 mph (245 kph) and now upped to 155 mph (250 kph).


We know that the 2022 MT-10 will have new bodywork and different dimensions than its predecessor, though pictures haven't emerged yet. From 55.1 inches (1,400mm) to 55.3 inches (1,405mm), the wheelbase increases by a fraction, and the overall length grows by the same amount, from 82.5 inches (2,095mm) to 82.7 inches (2,100mm). The wheel and tire sizes are unchanged - 120/70ZR-17 front, 190/55ZR-17 rear - so the length change could indicate revised steering or suspension geometry.

Despite its unchanged width of 31.5 inches (800mm), the 2022 MT-10 is significantly taller than its predecessor. In its lowest form, the new model is 45.9 inches (1,165mm) tall, rising optionally to 49.0 inches (1,245mm), suggesting that a screen or nose cowling will be an option.


After recent changes to the smaller MT-09, MT-07, and MT-03 models, which all now have a single, small headlight flanked by LED running light strips, it's likely the MT-10 will follow suit. In addition, the other MT models have also redesigned the air intakes on either side of the fuel tank, integrating them with the tank and using body-color plastic rather than contrasting black, so we can expect the same for the restyled MT-10 of 2022.

Weight changes for the 2022 model are also fractional, with each version of the bike rated as 4.4 pounds (2kg) heavier than its direct predecessor. Fuel included, the base model's curb mass is 467.4 pounds (212kg), while the SP version, expected to retain the electronically adjustable Öhlins suspension of the current bike, is 471.8 pounds (214kg).

Yamaha has yet to issue any official announcement about the MT-10 and MT-10SP 2022, but the documents indicate that they will be available soon. Most likely, they will be unveiled at the EICMA show in Milan by the end of November.
