Radical Super Ténéré Worldcrosser debuts at Paris Show

No other manufacturer can match Yamaha’s four decades of experience in the Adventure Sport class. Our first ground-breaking Yamaha XT model inspired the original Paris-Dakar rally over 30 years ago – and since then Yamaha’s rugged and reliable Ténéré and Super Ténéré models have enabled countless two-wheeled explorers to take on the toughest global challenge.

For 2012 Yamaha announce the launch of the most exciting adventure motorcycle ever to wear the proud XT logo. Designed for today’s globetrotting explorers who want to fulfil their dreams, the supremely capable Yamaha Super Ténéré Worldcrosser makes its debut at the Paris Show.

This rugged high-performance shaft-drive parallel-twin motorcycle has been inspired by the radical concept bike first seen in 2010 at Intermot, and comes equipped with a range of specially-developed high-specification chassis and bodywork parts designed to enhance its ‘go-anywhere’ abilities.

Its list of exclusive lightweight carbon components includes sidepanels, fork protectors and frame guards – and for extra protection off road, the Super Ténéré Worldcrosser is equipped with a skid plate, drive shaft shield and rear brake protector manufactured from black anodized aluminium*. All of these components are supplied in the official Worldcrosser kit, which is fitted to the production XT1200Z Super Ténéré by the customer’s authorised Yamaha dealer.

Offered with two exclusive graphic options – black speed block with yellow gold accents, as well as red speedblock with red accents – this top-of-the-range adventure bike opens up a whole new world of possibilities.

*Please note that the Worldcrosser kit does not include the Akrapovic exhaust and pure off road tyres shown in the attached images. These items are available as accessories from authorised Yamaha dealers.
