New Yamaha colours

Published: 01 September 2010

Yamaha has released new colours across the range and made minor tweaks to some models.

The ‘highlights’, according to Yamaha are a new linked-brake system on the XVS1300A Midnight Star and XV1900A Midnight Star. Push the rear brake pedal, and both front and rear brakes are operated. Fascinating stuff.

Further excitement comes in a new all-black edition of the XT1200Z Super Ténéré (now sold without all of the First Edition accessories), and the XT660Z Ténéré is now available with ABS.

Teenagers will note that the 2011 WR125X has a lower seat height, courtesy of a new seat, forks and shock absorber.

The YZF-R6 and YZF-R1 continue unchanged, as does the FZ-1 and FZ-1 Fazer, and the rest of the range in fact. Bet you can’t wait…
