Need a motorcycle that can handle the twistiest roads or harrowing trail? Pick yourself up a 2012 Yamaha WR, one of the most versatile and agile dual-sport bikes of the year. Its fuel injected, four-valve, liquid-cooled powerplant gives you complete control of your outing. More than 50 years of experience in refining and designing motorcycles, Yamaha has rolled out a bike that can do it all.
It’s not quite and enduro model, but it’s not quite a streetbike. It marries the two riding surfaces, but tends to lean a little heavier on the trail and dirt side. A 38mm Mikuni fuel-injection system, ensuring smooth throttle response, great fuel economy, reduced emissions and a choke-free design. With this system, acceleration is going to be the least of your worries.
Uniquely styled and calibrated suspension systems give the bike a snazzy look, but make sure the WR has quick response on turns, with accurate handling and less rider fatigue. As it’s more of a dirtbike than streetbike, this motorcycle maybe better suited for anyone who might want to just take to the streets to get to the local trailhead. Or, take it to return those movies, but you may end up taking a detour anyway.
