by Yamaha

As reported by Yamaha-Motor

Yamaha Motor Canada is proud to announce the launch of two exciting new motorcycles, the 2011 Stryker cruiser and 2012 Super Ténéré adventure tourer. These motorcycles complement the 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.

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 of 2011, 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, 1199cc 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.
