Stryker and Super Ténéré headline Yamaha effort at this year’s Motorcycle Show

For consumers eagerly anticipating this year’s motorcycle shows, there will be a significant buzz coming from the Yamaha booth. Much of that energy will emanate from four impressive models that Yamaha launched to much fanfare earlier in the year, those being the Stryker, Super Ténéré, FZ8 and Fazer 8.

The Stryker was built for riders who demand that their bike embody the same attitude as its owner; style, aggression and confidence. A raked front end, with special yoke offset, offers a custom look without sacrificing low speed handling. The belt drive is powered by a macho, fuel-injected, V-Twin that complements the “fists in the wind” riding position. Be sure to sit on the new Stryker to see just how comfortable riding a chopper-inspired bike can be.

The Super Ténéré’s rabid following will have a chance to get up close and personal with one of the most talked about Yamaha’s in years. What they will find are goodies like an 1199cc, fuel-injected, inline twin powerplant, traction control, ABS and unified braking – all coming as standard equipment on the base model. For those with an adventurous soul, the Super Ténéré can comfortably take you where few others dare to tread.

Not all motorcyclists prefer to lean back in the saddle or crouch over the tank. Many riders love the performance of a sport bike but require more practicality for every day use. Enter the versatile and fun FZ8, and its fairing endowed brother, the Fazer 8. Heart quickening acceleration with an upright riding position makes for a great ride on any stretch of road.

The new bikes aren’t the only attraction. Yamaha is pleased to bring the Yamaha Riding Academy back for another year, offering kids aged 6 – 12 free rides on some of the latest off-road models. Switching gears from first ride to seasoned professionals, Yamaha is displaying the two fastest motocross bikes in Canada, that being the #1 YZ450F of Dusty Klatt and the #1 YZ250F of Tyler Medaglia as part of a race display.

A few select Yamaha dealers will be set-up selling all of the latest apparel and accessories, and in some cases, “blowing out” non-current inventory! If you come to the show looking to buy, be sure to visit their booths!
