If you are planning to go in an adventure on two wheels then you’ll certainly have to carefully choose the perfect motorcycle. Firstly it will have to be reliable to the core, then very comfortable and of course strong and agile to be able to ride effortless on the highway but also on the unpaved roads.
The Yamaha XT1200Z Super Ténéré fits perfectly in this pattern and does much more than that. At the heart of this beauty lies a 1199 cc, liquid cooled, 2 cylinder engine that develops a maximum output of 80.9 kW (110PS) at 7,250 rpm and 114.1 Nm (11.6 kg-m) of torque at 6,000 rpm.
The Super Ténéré is equipped with Yamaha’s Chip-Controlled Throttle (YCC-T) technology with 3-stage traction control that can be turned off if wanted. You also get switchable Yamaha D-MODE engine mapping.
The motorcycle rides on spoked, tubeless aluminium rims wrapped in imposing 110/80R19M/C 59V front and 150/70R17M/C 69V rear tires.
