One of the most exciting new adventure-touring motorcycles introduced in recent years is the Yamaha XT1200Z Super Tenere and Adventure Designs has a selection of accessories to fit the Super Tenere, the popular FJR1300 sport-touring motorcycle and other Yamaha models.
For Super Tenere owners who want to exploit their motorcycles' full off-road potential, the most popular accessories are add-ons such as the AltRider Crash Bars and Skid Plate. Both are made specifically to fit the new Yamaha adventure-tourer. The hand-welded stainless steel AltRider Crash Bars are available in black or silver and have been intelligently designed to spread an impact across six mounting points and provide a wide contact area between the bars and the ground to minimize damage in case of an off-road spill. The AltRider Skid Plate is made of 3.175mm powder-coated aluminum and is also available in silver or black. Its design provides protection not only to the engine case, but also to the headers and stator. Another small item that can prevent ride-ending damage is the AltRider Rear Brake Master Cylinder Guard, which bolts on to provide more protection than the original equipment piece.
