Yamaha ceases production models XT660Z Tenere and XJR1300

At the end of the year, the company will complete Yamaha production models XT660Z Tenere and XJR1300.

Model XJR1300 has more than 20 years of history, starting with version XJR1200 presented in 1995. In the past year, the motorcycle has undergone modernization, but, apparently, not gone, so the Yamaha has decided to abandon production of the motorcycle, which, among other things, did not meet the standard Euro 4. Production of the Yamaha XT660Z Tenere will stop for the same reason.

Yamaha will be difficult to quickly replace the «outdated» XJR1300, while to replace the Yamaha XT660Z Tepee, most likely, will be prepared travel Enduro on the basis of motor MT-07, especially in April, the new model was seen on road tests in Italy.

Yamaha, like other manufacturers, reevaluates all the models that do not meet the Euro 4 standard. The math is simple: the calculated potential profit, the cost of upgrading, under the Euro 4 standard, the impact of modernization on the performance and competitiveness of the model. In the end, it becomes clear how efficiently to perform the upgrade.
