At this year’s EICMA motorcycle show, Yamaha revealed the 2014 XT1200ZE - a new endure tourer aimed at the modern riders.

The 2014 XT1200ZE Super Ténéré comes with standard electronically-adjustable suspensions, sport and town mappings, cruise control and a 3-stage traction control system.

The motorcycle weighs 265 kg (wet) and is propelled by an 1199cc, forward-inclined parallel 2 cylinder, liquid cooled, 4 stroke, DOHC, 4 valves engine. The unit puts out a maximum power of 82.4 kW (112PS) at 7,250 rpm and 117.0 Nm of torque at 6,000 rpm. All this power is kept in leash by a six speed transmission with wet multidisc clutch.
