2012 Yamaha Motorcycle
Not content with releasing 2011 models this year,Yamaha is giving us an early look at the 2012 Super Ténéré.
A successful model in Europe that has spawned an American cult demanding its release, the Super Teenere gets moving thanks to a DOHC 1200cc parallel twin powerplant with a dirt- friendly 270-degree crank.
The throttle is fly-by-wire and traction control is built into the system, plus the brakes have ABS. To keep the motor on the same page as the rider, there are two power settings – T-Mode for touring and S-mode for sport.
A six-speed transmission means there will be a gear for everything from a trail in the woods to the Interstate.
