Yamaha TDM 850 Specification

The latest version of Yamaha's 5-year "adventure sports" model, the TDM 850, underwent a subtle transformation as a proposal by Mike Tyson. The yellow and silver color model, introduced for this year, makes the TDM one of the most distinctive motorcycles that Yamaha has ever produced. Yamaha has a page from the book of euro design houses, which culminated in such a design  "masterpieces " as the Bimota mantra and Aprilia Moto 6.5. 
Yamaha has produced a bike that looks like the image it is trying to project and raise the expectations of future owners. Perhaps these expectations have been stirred up too much of a touch, as the TDM, while rolling a breath, still suffers from some of the problems of gnawing that has hurt its success in the past.

The most significant technical change for the TDM is found in the 10-valve 10-valve ten-valve vertical cylinder system with 10 valves. In a movement to improve performance, the old crank design of 360 degrees has been replaced by a "big bang" configuration with the crank sewing speed timing of 270 degrees. The narrower firing zone of the cylinders is intended to lead to a better traction of the rear wheel, which is why the 500cc GP racing machines used similar constructions of Crankscaping. What is questionable is whether this really makes sense for a twin twin-cylinder BHP 80 twin, but it was undoubtedly a smart move on the Yamaha part. 
The engine is shared with the Yamaha TRX850 model (intended directly for the Ducati owner's market) and the new engine sounds exactly like an Italian V-twin. It's an addictive sound. Turn the engine to 4000 U/Min, take a handful of gas and listen to this beautifully uneven double cylinder from 5000 to 7000 U/Min.

The engine feels strong from the U/Min mark 4000 and crosses the Redline RPM 8000 and beyond. Far beyond, as the speed limiter starts at 9400 U/Min. This is enough to run close to everyone, but the most uncompromising sport bike in the GP round trip. In the lower rever series, the wheel seems less happy, which transmits a feeling of grooves under 3000 U/Min and a slight flat spot between 3000 and 4000, accompanied by coarse motor vibrations. This smoothes when the diets increase and only a slight hum is felt through the footrests at driving speeds.

While Yamaha was advancing the TDM, it focused on updating the landing gear. This year, the diameter of the front fork tube has risen from 2mm to 43MM, and the previous rubber mounting of the handlebar has been decked. There is a disagreement on the efficacy of the Michelin macadam radial, the standard on the upcoming bike, but we found it well suited to the TDM, which felt planted on all road surfaces. The brakes are superb, with a good linear feel and enough power to keep the wheel upside down.

The dual-sport style driving position could be a total disaster on any bike with a firm view of the sports and sports market. It could easily not meet the requirements for any of these roles. The handlebars are high and wide, which gives a slight sense of direction, so the handling at low speed is good. Once with PACE and either long stretches on the freeway or crank through your favorite turns, a light cloth comes naturally, and is surprisingly comfortable.

The vestigial coating keeps most of the wind off the top of the body, exposing only the shoulders and arms. This makes the number of excavators easy at 5000 U/Min and 140 km/h, although the saddle pain settles in the saddle after about an hour. An explosion of the German road showed a specified peak speed of 220 km/h. It would have been possible to move something more than the kilometers of the bike as it was just pulling
