YAMAHA of the 2010 European Market New Super Ténéré Designed to be an Machine for Intercontinental Adventure” the latest technology

Yamaha Co. Ltd. announces the release of the new model Super Ténéré adopting the Yamaha Ténéré name long renowned in This model will be in the European and Australian markets in May 2010.

The new Super Ténéré has developed under the product of an “Ultimate Machine for Intercontinental It inherits the developmental ideals of the that won a strong following in in the ’80s and ’90s as the model scored many victories in the Rally with its reputation as one of the toughest endurance races. It a high-level balance of the qualities desire in an intercontinental long-distance including good performance on roads and light and agile performance.

The newly developed 2-cylinder 1,200cc power features a side-mounted radiator contributes to centralization of machine It also adopts traction based on technology fed back Yamaha’s MotoGP racer What’s more, a number of that support machine have been adopted: the D-MODE function that the rider choose between two modes, linear-control ABS that brake work for a smoother feeling, and a front-rear coordinated Brake System.

2010 market model Super

Name:Super Ténéré

Release May 2010

Main Features

1. developed 1200cc in-line engine

A 1200cc liquid-cooled, in-line 2-cylinder engine twin spark plugs and a primary balancer and 270-degree is adopted. The 270-degree crankshaft minimize the effect of inertial to improve the “torque feeling” and feeling.” The cylinder has a 26-degree incline for outstanding intake an upward-positioned air cleaner and a left radiator to ensure sufficient performance while helping to a short wheelbase and contributing to of machine mass.

2. YCC-T traction-control

Fuel injection outstanding throttle response and performance. The YCC-T (Yamaha Controlled Throttle) system controls the throttle valve to intake air volume also a traction control function. Fed from Yamaha’s MotoGP development, input from the and rear wheel speed detect rear wheel

That data is then instantaneously by the ECU and signals are generated to optimize rear wheel by comprehensively regulating the YCC-T, timing and the volume of fuel to optimize rear wheel This helps provide overall handling by minimizing the effects of balance loss occurs during acceleration on surfaces with poor The system also features a of two performance modes and an “Off”

The newly adopted YAMAHA function lets the rider between two mode maps.

3. ABS and Brake System

A linear ABS system and Unified Brake (front-rear unified brake are adopted on this model to to touring performance. The Unified System is a system in which the front brake lever activates the rear brake. the front brake is operated, control comes into to regulate the amount of brake generated by the rear brake on the strength of the front brake (hydraulic pressure), running and machine load, contributing to a enjoyable ride.

The system is so that the Unified Brake function is cancelled at times the rear brake is applied the front brake, thus the needs of off-road riding the rear brake is used to maintain machine stability.

4. features

Other features (1) a newly-designed frame, (2) compact short muffler and 3-way (3) shaft drive with gear that contributes to reduction, (4) solenoid operated switching projector type and (5) standard equipment 3-way that can carry a Yamaha top case or be used in standard or carrier form.
