Yamaha Continues to Tease Us With New Tenere 700 World Raid Concept
<p>Yamaha seems to have confirmed that some form of this off-roader will reach production at some point.</p>Indeed it would have, but that’s not what we got. Instead, we got the Tenere 700 World Raid prototype. In this case, “prototype” seems to mean that this bike is pretty much ready for production, but we aren’t confirming production quite yet. In Yamaha’s own words, the Tenere 700 is “a prototype model which is being used to develop the final specification of the production model.
There’s a newyou might start seeing patrolling American streets soon, and this one isn’t a big, shiny cruiser. Rather, it’s a sport touring bike that’s been modified for police duty. The is Yamaha’s flagship police bike in Europe, but it wasn’t available in the United States until now. Other parts of the world rely heavily on motorcycles as police vehicles while over here they’re used more as decorations to put in parades.
calls the FJR1300P “the epitome of performance and reliability, wrapped in the features essential in the line of duty.” It’s based on the FJR1300 sport touring bike which blends performance and comfort like any good sport touring bike should. This platform works well as a not only for its comfort but for its ease of handling when equipped with heavy equipment that a police bike requires.
Here's a Preview of the Cool Stuff Yamaha Is Bringing to CES 2018
Self-driving motorcycles, an autonomous personal transport, and farming drones are coming to Las Vegas in January.
It’s powered by a 1298cc, DOHC, 16-valve, liquid-cooled, inline-four engine linked to a six-speed manual transmission. It’s a shaft drive bike which ensures smooth power delivery and durability over a traditional chain setup. The suspension has a generous 5.3-inches of travel in front and 4.9-inches in back and it comes standard with ABS.
Some of the FJR1300P’s special police modifications include pre-wired electrical connectors for easy installation of sirens, speakers, and flashing lights, a pre-wired handlebar control switch, a compartment with pre-wired electrical connectors for an auxiliary battery, a tall 135mm power adjustable windshield, barkbusters integrated into the rearview mirrors, wind deflectors by the rider’s feet, crash bars, and a rear-mounted radio box.
Here Is the First New Curtiss Motorcycle since the Company's Rebranding
The motorcycle company formerly known as Confederate unveils the new Warhawk.Curtiss Motorcycle Co. is releasing its first new model since it changed its name from Confederate Motors last year. The newly branded company is named after motorcycle and aviation pioneer Glenn Curtiss who is often credited with inventing the V-twin motorcycle engine in 1903.
Keeping the wind off of the officer to reduce fatigue and giving the police department everything it needs to rig up the bike with the necessary equipment are the priorities of the FJR1300P over the standard civilian model.
Yamaha says the FJR1300P’s “imposing frame and refined styling reflect its commanding status and reliability.” Frankly, I think it’s a little goofy looking and it doesn’t look all that authoritative to me, but it certainly looks like the right tool for the job. It has the storage, features, and all-day comfort thatwant and need on duty.
