Shaft drive with rubber clutch damper
Shaft drive is vital for any serious long distance adventure rider, and the XT1200ZE is equipped with a rugged and reliable system that efficiently delivers the huge torque output to the rear wheel. And for increased comfort and durability the latest model is fitted with new rubber clutch dampers that give an even smoother ride.
Easy-to-adjust electronically adjustable suspension
The XT1200ZE’s electronically adjustable suspension enables the adventure rider to make instant suspension adjustments while on the move. This easy-to-operate system is controlled by a multi-function handlebar-mounted switch and offers a total of 84 different settings to suit every road and off road riding situation.
Optimum adjustability to suit all riders
Features such as the electronically adjustable suspension, D-MODE mapping and 3-stage traction control allow the rider to select the preferred mode for the prevailing conditions and the XT1200ZE is also equipped with a 4-step adjustable windscreen as well as an adjustable seat that can be set between 845mm and 870mm high.
Enhanced Yamaha D-MODE mapping and cruise control
D-MODE offers the choice of two different mapping options. “T” (town) mode gives a more relaxed and easy running character in slower conditions, while “S” (sport) mode delivers exhilarating and exciting performance on the open road. And for more relaxed long distance trips, cruise control is fitted as standard equipment.
Rugged components and long range durability
Look at the specifications and it is clear that the XT1200ZE Super Ténéré is a serious adventure bike that is built for extreme exploration. The slim and deep-sided fuel tank has a generous capacity of 23 litres for an extended riding range, while the tough aluminium spoked wheels run with heavy duty rims and tubeless tyres.
Intelligent unified braking system and ABS
The intelligent unified braking system gives the rider total control. Pulling the front brake lever first activates the unified system, while touching the rear brake first gives you individual control over the front and rear brakes. And for added confidence the XT1200ZE is equipped with ABS.
YCC-T with 3-stage traction control
XT1200ZE riders benefit from the most intelligent electronic rider assistance technology available. The ‘fly by wire’ Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle (YCC-T) ensures optimal response and outstanding power delivery, while the 3-stage traction control allows the rider to select the best setting for different conditions, on or off road.
