After Honda grabbed the spotlight for more than half a day at the on-going EICMA Show in Milan, with their eight new models, Yamaha quietly pulled out its big gun – The 2011 Yamaha Worldcrosser Concept, to go head on with the Honda Crosstourer, which was unveiled earlier in the day.
The Worldcrosser Concept, is fitted with a 1200cc, just like the Crosstourer, and is based on the BMW Series GS. The globetrotter which was conceptualized to overcome almost all the challenging terrains in the world, from Autobahn to Kalahari Desert, comes equipped with full navigation and GPS systems. Fully-equipped with an exclusive range of lightweight chassis components, this high-specification machine is designed for adventurous riders who want a supremely capable motorcycle for the toughest global challenge. By creating the Worldcrosser concept model, Yamaha has underlined the true spirit of the Super Ténéré. With the addition of a few specialist components and the replacement of some of the standard parts, this rugged adventure bike is ready for the most exciting off road adventure.
At the time, when Yamaha revealed the Worldcrosser Concept, they mentioned that “The Worldcrosser is a concept bike displayed to inspires adventure world travelers ad will not go into production.” But as it usually happens in the automotive world, the bike and the technologies on it will somehow stir some interesting developments in the times ahead.
