I think the big difference between the SMT and the S10 is the 19" front wheel on the S10. If you know you're never going to go off road then the SMT might be the better bike. If you want some dirt ability then I think the S10 is better.
Note that if you are in the US, Yamaha has a backlog on the S10 due to the quake in Japan. Shipments are going to people who ordered in advance. You may have a hard time finding a S10.
