    Post 2011 Yamaha XT1200Z Super Ténéré Unveiled

    With six gallon fuel tank, shaft drive, super strong spoked tubeless wheels, 1199cc parallel twin engine, ABS, traction control and selectable ignition maps (three in all), the new 2011 Yamaha XT1200Z Super Ténéré plans to take the adventure-bike category by storm. Boasting carefully centralized mass and a low CG, the go-anywhere bike could rule the asphalt twisties as well. Photos indicate it will come with street-biased (90/10) Bridgestone Battlewings on its 17 inch rear and 19 inch front wheels. A claimed wet weight (presumably, with that six gallon tank full) of 575 pounds, the Super Ténéré should be among the lightest bikes of its kind.
    Fully adjustable suspension and adjustable seat height add to its versatility. We have no word from Yamaha whether this fascinating new machine will be made available in the U.S., but European customers should be on the road with the Super Ténéré this summer. Stay tuned.
