Best Mountain Bike Technology
Great bike but disappointed that Yamaha have no TFT at this stage.
Great video as allways. Sir, if I may ask I would love to see your review on the Suzuki Boulevard M1800R. Thanks
Those front forks look so slim!
This bike is so boring. And the dash… ouch.
What a lovely machine!! Brilliant review!!
Germany looks beautiful btw
Are the colored stripes on the tires a type of manufacturing code? I know some tires are called antenna tires but it is groove to dissipate static electricity.
By the pass the grey poupon, practicing by upper class chitty chat.😊
Great review, thanks!
I've had my MT10 for three years. I still think it taicks most boxes. I ride mostly now two up with my wife on the back. I elongated the rear pegs because they are too short for any distance riding. We did 275 kilometer round trip today and had a blast. Riding solo it's as fun as you describe. What sold it for me was the way it tips into a tight corner, ready to pull like a rocket out of the corner. No nasty surprises just big smile ones. Even had the front wheel up in 5th gear once, hilarious. Glad you enjoyed your test. For me it's a crazy machine or a docile enjoy the ride machine.
Good review. Love my blue 2018 Yamaha MT-10. What machine. Yamaha did very good job with this bike for the price and the sound is so intoxicating. Yes the fuel tank could be bigger but at my age (59) after a 125 miles I'm ready for a stretch anyway.
Good video but your voice is really hard to understand a lot of the time
Ive had my CBR 600 for almost 3 years now and damnit do I want an MT 10. I was planning on this summer but now I want to wait for the TFT :'(
As usual a great review for connoisseurs. Slow intimate and precise. I changed my 1090 ktm a few months ago for a mt10 SP. what a bike. Tft screen by the way. And the semi electronic ohlins suspensions are butter when needed and so rigorous when required. One of the best bikes I ever owned. Please give me a tip for driving with it as you do??! 60kmh all the way, on my side it’s more above 200. The crossplane is begging for 😁. Again thanks for your perfect reviews
Beautiful day, beautiful bike, beautiful review.Thank you, Scott!
I just don't like how the MT-10 looks. as a matter of fact when I think about it I don't like any MT from Yamaha.All awesome fun bikes but the looks just doesn't click with me. They all have this Gimmicky-Transformers look without grace and sex appeal..
My last bike was the SuperDuke and, I've replaced it with this. I find it more fluid and relaxed – definitely lighter in weight. I dart in and out of traffic with ease and I LOVE how I can change the power characteristics to suit my mood. I've never had a motorcycle that drank fuel like this one, even my Tuonos but, I've never had a bike that fit my temperament so well.
How long have you been riding? What was your first real bike? And how long have you been in Germany?
Ive owned it 4 months now. You dont get tired off this bike anytime soon. It got so much personality with that awsome CP4 engine that sounds like a old school muscle car (esp after changing the exhaust). Awsome chassi and wery comfy. Only negative is the range ( reserv around 200km).
New to your channel and content. I like what I've seen so far. I've had a chance to test ride this bike and enjoyed every minute of it!
Nice Review! This MT-10 and the Triumph Street Triple RS are on my radar. Nice past review of the Triumph ST. Just wondered about your riding jeans. Could you share the brand and model? I like the option of the zipper vents. Don't see too many brands/models that offer that.
Not a lot of people know but the MT10 has THE QUICKEST 0-60mph of ANY production bike in history . When people say they didn't notice the power being down it's becaue the MT10 cross plane crank performed at the same levels of the othe supernakeds with less hp. I've had crossplane R1's and loved them but my favorite bike for sure was my FZ10 (MT10) I had the battleship grey/fluorescent yellow combo. Loved it! Also get rid of the cat and it sounds epic!!!
Let me add, I bought mine at the launch before ever seeing one in person, bought it sight unseen from a Yamaha KTM dealer in California (I live in utah US) the preview reviews of the FZ10, MT10 when all the prosffessionals and emagazines agreed with that comment I knew there was no reason to NOT buy and I saved $8,500 US over my other choice the superduke R. Now I know it's not quiteeee am SDR, BUT a bike that competes SO closely to the worlds best hypernakeds at a bike u can get half the price of the SDR and Tuono Factory . I'm not kidding you msrp in the US was $12,999,…BUT nearing the launch i searched for the best price on a new one (which they all were being ore launch) I found Thousand Oaks Powersports in California, one of the most reputable dealers in the US apparently /and I can attest to that!! They were amaizint! Anyway they ordered 12 FZ10 's at launch, 9. In grey and 3 in black , to their shock they had nearly no deposits by the launch and being a top dealer they were worried about loosing dealer allotment if they ordered 12 and sold 1 , so they listed 2 of the grey and yellows brand new at $9,200!!!!! NEW 0 miles, out the door price!!!!!! I saves nearly $5,000 when ALL was said and done. I got a Loan for $9k , insurance is dirt cheap, it's such a blast to ride, think is a wheelie monster , all the power is low and modeange, shorter wheelbase than R1 so more nimble; it's Jsut hella fun and man,..$9,000 new!!?????you can not possible beat that!!!! A lot of areas are still being slow to adopt the no brainer super nakedness that are as fast as superbikes but comfortable and maybe all the torque low for fun riding, SO capitalize on the Morons that don't get it yet and but one, I'll never go back to sueprsport after my MT10 , no reason, quicker, more comfortable, different than all the sport bikes out there, cruise control , I can ride it accross the Us at any time and not worry or be i pain, it's such an amazing bike!!!
For those wondering, I had mine 2 years put 8,000 miles on it and had not ONE issues, problem or need for the dealer, yamaha and espcsicllt the crossplane 4 is bombproof.
I have the 2017 US model and I don't think its all that, with all the performance problems it has. I still own the bike because it's the second most comfortable I have ever had, the XT660X was the most comfy, but I can't lie about it's performance. The issues I have with the bike are: Gas/range, it is a hard thing to deal with, because you know you can't travel far on the bike and since I live in Southern Nevada it is a major problem for me.
Brakes, I owned 2004 R1, 2001 R6, 2017 XSR 900 and 2008 XT660X and the brakes on the FZ/MT-10 are the worst brake I have ever experienced on a motorcycle period. I have to ride this bike like I'm driving an 4×4 truck, I brake early and keep a distance. I never rode that way in my life. The brake just zap confidence when riding especially in traffic.
Tires for me they are slipper as hell, but I'm used to Dunlops. I can't get any confidence with these tires every time I take a roundabout the bike slides if I'm 5 to 10 miles over the limit.
Wind blast, anything over 70 mile per hour becomes a fight and is tiring especially if you ride with gear. Getting old I guess!
Speed, too me this bike is slow! I mean for all the hype it is slow, but I do ride with traction control 2 because if the tires and brakes I guess. I love the XSR and all my Yamaha's prior, but this bike makes me want to sell it. I know how to ride a motorcycle, done trackdays and all that stuff but, this bike just sucks in my opinion!
I like the looks, sound, leg room, slipper clutch, display, suspension, LCD lights, and my comfort seat! Bought the sintered brake pads, and heated grips, but haven't installed them as of yet. Trying to find a good wind screen that doesn't take away from the the look and will get some dunlop Q3 tires and I think that will get the bike to where I will love it again!
A poor mans super duke.🤷🏾♂️
Its insane to call this bike underpowered. Its more than enough for the street
Would you pick it over a Monster 1200 S or R??
Love your videos! Would you please tell me what helmet mount you are using for your gopro?
How big difference is it between this and the superduke r in the low end RPMs?
Good reviews Scott
You say underpowered I’ve owned 2018 superduke r and mt10 sp i’m not surprised you think it’s underpowered do you ride your KTM like that 🐓😂
I appreciate you comparing bikes from other competing brands. Please keep doing that!
15:41 then get the SP version
I'm going crazy trying to decide between this bike and the super duke r! I don't commute on my bike (fz-07) but use it only for fun rides in the twisties so looking for the bike that will give the most thrills. In your opinion after riding both which bike would you say has the most fun factor? Also which bike do you think is best for a shorter rider? I'm about 5'7 or 175cm.
Advice needed. I currently own a Triumph Speed Twin, but I'm wanting to do more long trips. The Speed Twin doesn't have cruise control or decent wind protection, so I'm considering a sport touring type bike. The ones that I'm looking at are the MT 10(Touring Package), BMW R 1250 RS, and the KTM Super Duke 1290 GT. Which would you chose? Thanks, Justin
I have the tuono and I am contemplating this bike My tuono durability kinda worries me What you all think ?
I have a 2018. Love it. It needs nothing. Put TC in 2 (so it will still wheelie), throttle in 3 so that it is not abrupt, and have fun. A few suspension adjustments and it is super fun on track, at the stock settings, it is great on the street. Super comfy, great wind protection for a naked, good brakes, wheelies like crazy, sounds awesome. Even good stock tires. Only glitch doesn't really bother me since I only ride for recreation – and that is the MPG. I get about 27-28. But I know for some that might be a problem.
As always a great review and honest assessment 🙂 Could I ask if there are any tee shirts available to buy with your logo on?
MT10 and “underpowered” in the same sentence doesnt really mix 🤣
Nice review. Can you please let me know what is the model of the Go Pro chin mount on the helmet?
This is sort of like listening to Bob Ross paint, except it's bike reviews.
Nice to see a sensible honest review, thanks…
15,000 dollars int the Philippines! Ouch!
