Yamaha Super Ténéré Worldcrosser 1200 - May 4, 2012, 11:41 AM

















Here is a nice video starring the new Yamaha Super Ténéré Worldcrosser 1200 during the press test that took place in Spain last month. This professionally made footage shows us the most extreme version of the XT1200Z Super Ténéré taking on the difficult conditions of the evocative Spanish countryside and proving it is totally at ease on the gravel, on the sand, through the water and so forth. The video also lingers on some of the most interesting details of the model and surely will make all the fans of this bike happy.

The model is powered by a 1,199 cc in-line two with a a compression ratio of 11.0:1 that is credited with an output of 110 hp and 114 Nm of torque at 6,000 rpm. What really sets the Worldcrosser apart from the ‘regular’ Super Ténéré is a bunch of special parts: carbon side panels, lightweight carbon frame and fork protectors, drive shaft shield and rear brake protector in black anodized aluminum and an aluminum skid plate.

Down on the power, heavier, but priced less then all of them. Don't like parallel twins but its reviewed pretty solid.

What's not to like about parallel twins? Keep in mind the application..


I think the Multi is more road biased than the others...

there is nothing bad bout them, I just don't like them, every parallel i've ridden is just buzzy, no torque, needs to rev'd to make any power. I just prefer V-twin.

I guess a plus side to parallels is that they don't take much room in term of packaging compared to a v-twin.

Is every parallel you've ridden the Ninja 250?

They are torque monsters, it all depends on the engine and the way it's designed...

Yes no doubt it depends on application. the freaking Thunderbird is 1600cc twin, of course there is torque. I've ridden kawi 250, 650, 450 hondas, and a triumph thruxton. like the 360 crank feel on the triumph, but i just prefer a v-twin. got nothing against parallels people.
