The 2022 Yamaha MT-10 will soon be released with an engine updated to Euro5 anti-pollution standard. It may also arrive with a small facelift, according to supposed official images that have appeared on social media.
According to the website motorradonline.de, Yamaha has filed the documents for homologating the new model, which will continue to be offered in the standard and SP (Sport Package) versions.
Moreover, the documents reveal that the new model will receive a new exhaust system, but it is unclear whether there will be internal changes to the engine.
According to the site, the 2022 Yamaha MT-10 will be compatible with Euro5 and, as a bonus, it will gain some more horsepower. They say the 998cc in-line 4-cylinder engine will be capable of generating up to 122 kW (166 HP), that is, 4 kW (6 HP) more than the current model. The torque would also rise a little bit to 112 Nm.
Another item that will have a small change is the chassis, which will be 5 mm longer, with a wheelbase also 5 mm longer. The weight can also increase by 2 kg, reaching a total of 214 kg.
The facelift of the 2022 Yamaha MT-10 is not yet official, despite the supposed official images. The approval document does not specify this. If true, the bike will have less fairing around the headlight, but keeping the current design, that is, it will not follow the path adopted in the MT-07 and MT-09.
Anyway, we have to wait for the launch to confirm this preliminary information.
