Here is a nice video starring the new Yamaha Super Ténéré Worldcrosser 1200 during the press test that took place in Spain last month. This professionally made footage shows us the most extreme version of the XT1200Z Super Ténéré taking on the difficult conditions of the evocative Spanish countryside and proving it is totally at ease on the gravel, on the sand, through the water and so forth. The video also lingers on some of the most interesting details of the model and surely will make all the fans of this bike happy.
The model is powered by a 1,199 cc in-line two with a a compression ratio of 11.0:1 that is credited with an output of 110 hp and 114 Nm of torque at 6,000 rpm. What really sets the Worldcrosser apart from the ‘regular’ Super Ténéré is a bunch of special parts: carbon side panels, lightweight carbon frame and fork protectors, drive shaft shield and rear brake protector in black anodized aluminum and an aluminum skid plate. Then we have a pretty cool new photo gallery picturing this awesome bike courtesy of our buddies from Motoblog.it: check it out.

A special version of Yamaha’s brand new Super Tenere Worldcrosser - with a never-seen-before “competition white” color scheme - is currently on display at the 2012 Motor Bike Expo, a motorcycle fair taking place in Verona, Italy. The new graphics are obviously inspired by the manufacturer’s historic white-red-black color scheme, that was recently retrieved from memory for Yamaha’s 50th anniversary celebrations.
The model can be considered a more extreme version of the XT1200Z Super Ténéré, sharing the same 1,199 cc inline twin-cylinder engine with its ’standard’ counterpart, This unit has a compression ratio of 11.0 : 1 and produces an output of 110 hp and 114 Nm of torque at 6,000 rpm. However, what really differentiates the Worldcrosser from the ‘regular’ Super Ténéré are some special parts: carbon side panels, lightweight carbon frame and fork protectors, drive shaft shield and rear brake protector in black anodized aluminum and also an aluminum skid plate. No doubt the Worldcrosser would be up for any sort of off-road adventure.
Here is an official photo gallery of the model with the new livery as well as a few shots taken live at the Yamaha’s stall in Verona by our buddies from Motoblog.it.
