What we say…

I rode a Super Ténéré for 12 months from its launch. Never wanted to give it back. It just grabbed me. Made me think about “The Journey”. The lifetime trip. You know, the one you’ve always promised you’d do before succumbing to golf club socials, Saga insurance and not being able to tell shampoo from conditioner 'cos you can’t wear your reading glasses in the shower. The R.T.W. The “Round –The - Worlder.”

The Super Ténéré had everything my perfect adventure bike needed. Comfortable. Fast. Great motor. TCS and ABS plus the one essential any world tourer has to have… impeccable quality. Everywhere. Trust me, you really do want that, in the bike and in the back of your mind. When it’s pitch black in a land you’ll never know beyond your headlamp beam…and the roads just disintegrated. Plus nobody, but nobody does quality like Yamaha.

I said then that if I was doing that trip, “the Super Ténéré" would definitely be the bike. Period”. I lied.

The World Crosser would be. Well come on. If you’re gonna have a bike that can do the business it might as well look the business. Carbon side panels, sump guard, shaft/diff guard. Engine guards…all good practical stuff but we all know it’s the fog lamps and that stunning graphic kit that set it off. That’s the look. Shallow I know …but hey ho…. What can I say “I’m shallow”. XTZ1200 Super Ténéré - best world adventure bike. The World Crosser Kit makes it the best looking. Now why ain't this shampoo lathering...



The Worldcrosser is fitted with a range of beautifully-finished carbon components, including exclusive new side panels. These rugged and lightweight side panels are equipped with aluminium mesh in the air vents to give this high-specification adventure bike an even more exclusive appearance.


Frame guards

For added durability in off road riding situations the Worldcrosser is equipped with lightweight carbon frame protectors. These extremely tough components shield the tubular frame from the effects of abrasion caused by the rider’s boots, helping you to reduce wear and tear and maintain the bike’s good looks.


Fork protectors

As well as shielding the 43mm fork tubes from dirt and debris, the lightweight carbon fork protectors give the Worldcrosser an exclusive image. These durable protectors also feature an exclusive wrap –around design that offers extra side protection to the fork outer tubes.


Drive shaft shield

Yamaha have developed a number of black anodized aluminium parts to help protect the Worldcrosser’s chassis components in the most extreme off road environments. The specially-designed drive shaft shield gives added protection to the shaft housing and rear hub when riding in rocky or rutted terrain.


Skid plate

In addition to the many other protectors fitted to the Worldcrosser, this tough adventure bike is also equipped with a rugged aluminium skid plate. Its durable design helps to protect the crankcases and header pipes from rocks, stumps and debris, and also acts as a glide plate if you bottom out on uneven terrain.


Rear brake protector

Running along the length of the aluminium swinging arm is a lightweight black anodized aluminium shield which protects the rear brake calliper and brake line. When you’re a long way from home it’s good to know that Yamaha’s designers have fitted the best possible protection systems to help prevent accidental damage to your Worldcrosser.
