The Worldcrosser is fitted with a range of beautifully-finished carbon components, including exclusive new sidepanels. These rugged and lightweight sidepanels are equipped with aluminium mesh in the air vents to give this high-specification adventure bike an even more exclusive appearance.

Frame guards

For added durability in off road riding situations the Worldcrosser is equipped with lightweight carbon frame protectors. These extremely tough components shield the tubular frame from the effects of abrasion caused by the rider’s boots, helping you to reduce wear and tear and maintain the bike’s good looks.

Fork protectors

As well as shielding the 43mm fork tubes from dirt and debris, the lightweight carbon fork protectors give the Worldcrosser an exclusive image. These durable protectors also feature an exclusive wrap –around design that offers extra side protection to the fork outer tubes.

Drive shaft shield

Yamaha have developed a number of black anodized aluminium parts to help protect the Worldcrosser’s chassis components in the most extreme off road environments. The specially-designed drive shaft shield gives added protection to the shaft housing and rear hub when riding in rocky or rutted terrain.

Skid plate

In addition to the many other protectors fitted to the Worldcrosser, this tough adventure bike is also equipped with a rugged aluminium skid plate. Its durable design helps to protect the crankcases and header pipes from rocks, stumps and debris, and also acts as a glide plate if you bottom out on uneven terrain.

Rear brake protector

Running along the length of the aluminium swinging arm is a lightweight black anodized aluminium shield which protects the rear brake caliper and brake line. When you’re a long way from home it’s good to know that Yamaha’s designers have fitted the best possible protection systems to help prevent accidental damage to your Worldcrosser.

Sticker kit

Available in a choice of yellow/black or red, these Yamaha speedblock stickers are designed to enhance the screen, sidepanels, frame protectors and skid plate.

Tank protection pads

Asphaltandrubber ---- "So it is hard to imagine how Yamaha could improve on an already fine motorcycle (we guess the tuning fork brand could give the Super Ténéré away for free), but the Japanese manufacturer did so with its Yamaha Super Ténéré Worldcrosser concept"

Twowheelsblog ---- "The new graphics are obviously inspired by the manufacturer’s historic white-red-black color scheme, that was recently retrieved from memory for Yamaha’s 50th anniversary celebrations"
