'Having already created some of the most innovative and successful models in the European market, Yamaha have developed an all-new one-litre motorcycle that has the potential to challenge all comers in the naked bike class. The radical new MT-10 is ready to exceed expectations and appeal to those riders who are looking for a new kind of connected riding experience that can be enjoyed on any road, any time and at any speed.

'Its 998cc crossplane engine delivers massive levels of linear torque in the low to mid speed range for adrenaline-charged performance - and the aluminium Deltabox chassis features an ultra-short wheelbase of just 1400mm to give supremely light and agile handling performance. Aggressive mass forward styling with a natural riding position give the MT-10 a dominant presence that attracts attention and demands respect - and with its high-tech YZF-R1 based suspension systems and class-leading specification, this iconic new member of motorcycling’s most successful and influential family is the most remarkable naked bike to be developed by Yamaha so far.'

Be interesting to try one against the MT-09. both should in theory be around the same weight as one another ( 180kg range ) both the same sort of physical size.

Yamaha are really going all out on the MT range now. Even brought the MT-03 back but as a 300cc twin. So there's the MT-125, MT-03, MT-07, MT-09 and MT-10.

I wonder when we will get to see a YZF-R9 using the triple engine?
