MT-10 Metal Treatment – MT-10(tm) is a chemical treatment that reduces the surface roughness of metal. Its mechanism is based on multiple interactions over time. It causes a thermal decomposition of the surface, thereby reducing its friction coefficient. Additionally, it produces a film of iron halures that reduce the adherence between surfaces in relative motion.
Muscle’s MT-10(r) metal treatment solution improves the lubricity and load-carrying capacity of metal surfaces. It works by modifying the metal surface’s chemical properties to increase lubricity and load-carry capacity. The MT-10 system offers a number of benefits over other anti-friction metal treatments.
The MT-10’s 998cc liquid-cooled CP4 crossplane engine is tuned to deliver linear torque, while reducing weight and ensuring a rigid, closed-deck cylinder block. The airbox features three different-length intake ducts tuned to resonate harmoniously at different engine speeds. The bike’s intake and exhaust systems have been tweaked to maximize the bike’s roar and deliver optimal street handling.
The MT-10 is equipped with a six-axis Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), which is first developed for the YZF-R1. The IMU measures acceleration and lean-sensitive traction control. It also offers four pre-set system settings, and features an up/quickshifter to make gear changes easier.
The MT-10 SP is an updated version of the award-winning MT-10. It features semi-active suspension for more customised comfort, new switchgear, and R1M-like colours. While the SP is the top-end model, the standard MT-10 is a great bike in its stock trim, and PS2600 cheaper than the SP.
The MT-10 SP replaces KYB suspension with Ohlins semi-active suspension. The bike also features YZF-R1M-inspired styling accents. Ohlins’ next-generation electronically controlled suspension employs spool-valve damping technology to achieve greater damping control and response.
