Two completely different bikes – same jaw dropping impact!
Yamaha Motor Canada has just announced the launch of two exciting new motorcycles, the 2011 Stryker cruiser and 2012 Super Ténéré adventure tourer. These motorcycles complement the new Yamaha FZ8 and Fazer 8 motorcycles previously launched in June.
The all-new Stryker, with a 1304cc, fuel-injected powerplant and chopper-inspired styling, is a motorcycle that begs to be ridden and admired. Ride quality is bolstered with typical V-Twin attributes like arm-stretching torque and a classic rumble sound. The Stryker also boasts the 34-degree rake with 6-degree yoke offset found on the larger displacement Raider, allowing for comfortable low-speed handling while maintaining the stylish, low and raked look of a custom.
The Ténéré has been a staple on European roads for many years now and Yamaha’s extraordinary new Super Ténéré has been a hot topic of conversation among motorcyclists since its European launch earlier this year. Although it will not hit showrooms until the spring, Yamaha is proud to introduce it to Canada, a land made for adventure. At the heart of the Ténéré lies a fuel-injected, 2-cylinder, liquid-cooled, 1199 cc mill that mixes gobs of torque with quick-revving acceleration for excellent performance in varied conditions. The bike has a number of advanced rider assist technologies like; Intelligent Unified Braking System with ABS, Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle with 3-mode traction control, a low, centralized mass for confidence-inspiring handling and adjustable seat height and suspension.
“The new Ténéré is the ultimate bike for an adventurous soul. It’s has some of Yamaha’s latest technology with everything you need to cover big miles on a route less traveled”, says Bayliss.
