Chris Newbigging, 21 October 2009 16:07

Yamaha is drip-feeding more pictures of its interesting, if slightly ludicrous, made-from-cloth Super Ténéré  concept, revealed today (October 21) at the Tokyo show.

World's first stereo swingarm!

Chris Newbigging, 10 October 2009 15:30

Chris Newbigging, 02 October 2009 12:04
