The SuperTraveller is based on the 1000cc MZ model range. Other 1000cc MZ bikes are the sportsbike 1000 S and the naked bike 1000 SF SuperFighter.
Frame and fairing of the SuperTraveller are to a large extent identical with the MZ 1000 S that is produced in the Zschopau factory since 2004. The 4-stroke, inline twin engine is identical with the MZ 1000 SF SuperFighter that has been launched recently. The engine is tuned for torque (98 Nm) and has a top performance of 83 kW (113hp) at 9000 rpm.
The features of the new SuperTraveller have been designed for comfortable journeys: A different handle bar and low foot rests ensure that the seating position is absolutely perfect for long distances. The screen is 30 mm higher compared to the MZ 1000 S to grant more wind protection with an upright seating position. A new rear seat cushion provides more comfort for the pillion rider. Optimised clutch springs reduce the hand-force to operate the clutch by 20%.
In addition, the manufacturer offers a luggage system that can carry the luggage of 2 people for long journeys. The basis of this luggage system are two 40 l side cases that can be upgraded to total 120 l and 25 kg carrying capacity with an additional 40 l top case. A steering damper which has been developed especially for this purpose keeps the bike 100% stable with maximum load.
The name "SuperTraveller" is connected to the successful "Skorpion Traveller" that has been produced until 2000. Due to its reliability and high practical use, most of its owners still use the bike daily.
