As long as the 10w-40 is motorcycle-specific, you will be fine.

I'd be running 20W50 at those temperatures. As long as nights are not near freezing. The owners manual has engine oil weight recommendations for temperature.

Mobil V-Twin 20W50 is a very thick oil for 50W. That would be a good choice at those temperatures. What is the lowest temperature it will operate at?

EDIT: At 50°C I don't know whether the cooling system will be adequate. The temperature on my 750 was starting to rise on a 44°C day on the highway at 100kph.
