Staff bikes: Yamaha Super Tenere - The continent-trotter

Michael Guy, 08 December 2011 13:16

The wheels of the big Yamaha Super Tenere have barely stopped turning. It’s been into France, Belgium and Germany for the Nurburgring WSB round followed by a jaunt down to Magny Cours for another WSB race. In between I’ve been to the depths of Devon to Dartmouth and it also got me to Snetterton for a track day, and that’s ...

Video: Yamaha OW-01 revisited

Michael Neeves, 24 November 2011 14:03

Back in 1989 Yamaha created the OW-01, a homologation special built for superbike racing. With a staggering £12,700 price tag, it cost more than the Honda RC30 and with only 500 built, the Yamaha was more exclusive too. In this video, MCN Senior Road Tester Michael Neeves gets to realise a 22-year old dream and ride this classic superbike for ...

Traction control raises new Yamaha R1's game

Michael Neeves, 20 October 2011 16:35

The addition of traction control - which Yamaha says is the same system as used on the YZR-M1 MotoGP racer - makes the 2012 R1 a better road and track bike. But MCN's world first track test also revealed it has not managed to leapfrog its superbike rivals. This isn't surprising - there are very few changes to Yamaha's flagship ...

Maximum muscle, minimum cost: GSX1400 v XJR1300 v CB1300

MCN, 17 October 2011 15:44

How times change. In the late 1970s and early '80s, bikes with silhouettes the same as these machines would have been called superbikes. Capacity was king and the bigger the cubes the better. Liquid-cooling? Pah, real men like AMA Superbike champion rode air-cooled monsters such as the Suzuki GS1000, Yamaha XS1100 or Honda CB1100. Fast-forward 30 years and this style ...

2012 Yamaha R1 - first impressions

Michael Neeves, 12 October 2011 09:56

We're in Spain riding the 2012 Yamaha R1 at the Valencia MotoGP circuit. Aside from a few very minor tweaks the main change to the Yamaha is its new six-stage traction control. We've just done our first session and the TC is on max. It's so intrusive you can hold the throttle to the stop out of every corner, not ...

Editor’s Picks: Yamaha FZS1000 Fazer

MCN, 07 October 2011 16:07

A comfortable streetbike with an R1 engine, the FZS1000 Fazer could have been a sportsbike destroyer, but it’s actually a soft, easygoing machine with plenty of punch. Arguable the ultimate all-rounder the big Fazer does everything well. Yamaha's engineers lopped the high rev peak power off the R1 engine for the Fazer, but rather than bolstering torque they managed to ...
