Yamaha to debut Worldcrosser

2012-01-25 11:59

Yamaha's XT1200Z Super Ténéré has a motorsport heritage with four decades of rally-raids.

In March 2012, Yamaha will pander to sports enthusiasts with the launch of its Worldcrosser, which was first seen as a concept at Motorcycle Live in 2010.

The new bike will be a limited edition model featuring all the benefits of the XT1200Z Super Ténéré including traction control, ABS, linked brakes and shaft drive. This rugged high-performance parallel-twin comes equipped with a range of specially developed high-specification chassis and bodywork parts designed to enhance its off road abilities.

ROUGH STUFF


Its list of 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 anodised aluminium.

The new model is offered with two exclusive graphic options: a black speedblock with yellow gold accents, as well as red speedblock with red accents.

The Yamaha Worldcrosser will retail for the equivalent R160 563.

    Cool Yamaha, way to go, your 2012 Tenere will now nearly equal my 2005 GS.
