Yamaha XT1200Z Super Tenere Full Specs and Photo Gallery
The new adventure touring bike is destined to be used for transcontinental expeditions and boasts various high-tec innovations, such as traction control, ABS and a 270-degree, 1,199cc 115 bhp parallel twin engine, among others.
The bike’s traction control system offers three operating modes. Firstly, TCS1 is the standard mode and will intervene whenever the rear wheel starts loosing grip. Secondly, TCS2 has a lesser effect to allow small slippage of the back during an off-road style riding and last, the system can be completely disabled (OFF).
The new Super Tenere comes equipped with selectable injection maps (D-mode): the Sport map causes an instant response of acceleration for maximum performance while Touring Map provides a smoother power delivery.
Reservations for the Super Tenere are set to begin this month. The bike will make its debut on the European market as a special edition of one year that will include various adventure features as standard and which will come as optional features in 2011.
The accessories range from heated grips to a low saddle for shorter riders, as well as sturdy aluminum panniers to complete the round-the-world look.
