The Mercury Cars Guide : March 6th 2010
18--- Classifieds 62 300 400 • carsguide.com.au Saturday, March 6, 2010 Riding in fine communications style CLEVER CONNECTION: Scala's G4 communications system allows units to stayed connected up to 1.6km apart and automatically pairs up again if the link is broken. BLUETOOTH communications that allow bike riders to use a phone, listen to music or talk to other riders have been around for a while but there are usually two main problems. The first is that every time you lose the connection, you have to manually pair up again and the second is that they lose the connection when you get a few hundred metres apart. Now the fourth generation of Scala's popular set will stay lin- ked to up to 1.6km and will automatically pair up again if the link is broken. Plus it is the first to offer group intercom for up to three riders or two riders and their two pillions. It now comes with an FM radio, mobile phone support and voice activation so you can make a call using your hands. The headset offers simul- taneous talking/listening capa- bility as well as mobile phone call conferencing between riders, be- tween rider and passenger, or with outside callers. It adjusts the headset volume based on ambient noise and driving speed and has a noise-cancelling microphone. The G4 can connect with almost any portable Bluetooth device including mobile phones, MP3 players and compatible GPS units for in-helmet voice direc- tion instructions. It can also connect with non- Bluetooth MP3 players and GPS units via the jack. It fits all types of helmets and can be installed in five minutes. Yamaha push to outdo Beemer leader DESERT MARATHON: Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman, seen above on their last voyage on BMW's R1200GS, will try the Yamaha Super Tenere, below, on their next trek. DON'T be surprised if you see Star Wars actor Ewan McGregor on a Yamaha next time he ventures around the world. Yamaha has released its 1200cc Super Tenere adventure bike to compete with BMW's segment-leading R1200GS which McGregor and Charley Boorman rode in their Long Way Down TV series. The Super Tenere was presented in an unfinished concept form at last year's Tokyo Motor Show and last month was unveiled in production form through a worldwide internet launch. The bike makes its Australian debut this weekend at the World Superbike Champion- ships at Phillip Island. Like the BMW GS, it has a low-maintenance shaft drive, twin-spark 1200cc engine and spoked tubeless wheels. Other features are a linked brake system with anti-lock brakes; side-mounted radiators; three- stage traction control; rider-selectable throttle control maps; and adjustable suspension and seat height. Yamaha Australia spokesman Sean Goldh- awk said it would be available here in June in blue only and at a cheaper price than the BMW. ''There will be lots of accessories available at the launch,'' Goldhawk said. Tenere refers to a region of the Sahara Desert and the name has been linked with the famously gruelling Dakar Rally. The Super Tenere version was the two- cylinder 750cc model, discontinued in 1995. Yamaha has upped the ante this time with a 1200cc displacement parallel-twin engine to match the dominant BMW GS bikes, although power and torque are slightly down on the updated BMW boxer engine. While Yamaha has tried to match a lot of the BMW's dimensions and specifications, the major problem is that it weighs about 40kg more.
