Yamaha Introduces Stylish Stryker for 2011 and Early Release 2012 Super Ténéré!

Two completely different bikes - same jaw dropping impact!


Toronto, ON – September 1, 2010 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.

John Bayliss, Product Manager, Motorcycles at Yamaha Motor Canada says, “Customers can now get that original, custom look with the reliability, fit and finish that Yamaha provides from the factory. They no longer have to choose as the new Stryker offers the best of both worlds.”

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, 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.

“The new Ténéré is the ultimate bike for an adventurous soul. It’s has some of Yamaha’s latest technology with everything you need to cover big miles on a route less traveled”, says Bayliss.

In launching two bikes with completely different applications, Bayliss mused, “The only thing similar about these bikes is they require a motorcyclist with a bold personality who is passionate about their riding. Whether you want to attract attention on the boulevard or go exploring in remote areas, these bikes are yet another example that Yamaha has something for everyone.”
