Yamaha MT-09 Triple Worldcrosser Concept by Oberdan Bezzi
The Yamaha MT-09 (or FZ-09, as it it marketed in some countries including the US) managed to bring a very hefty breath of fresh air into the industry, as it came with very nifty looks, great specs and a very good price. And seeing designer use it as the starting point for new concept is only natural.

Bezzi chose the triple-cylinder mill as the power unit for an enduro derivation of the MT-09 chassis, using taller and more compliant suspensions, able to tackle both long asphalt roads and unsealed territory.

The tires are obviously knobbies, and auxiliary fuel tanks are also a must. The bike should be a solo one, with space intelligently used for accommodating navigation and touring gear.

Oberdan bezzi's Yamaha WorldCrosser also comes with superior crash protection in the shape of engine guards and a sturdy bashplate.

Dream or not, Yamaha could indeed develop such a bike, and add a more manageable enduro-tourer to its line-up. Because a huge 578 lbs/261 kg 1199cc bike Super Tenere is not exactly a wise choice for enduro...
