Ehm better first get yer facts right, the Duc aka The Mandril, is a SMT with just a little less lard, and only a bit more hp, but at high revs 118,7 Nm @ 7500 rpm, compared with the 114 Nm @6000 of the Tenere, and knowing the Yamaha Kodo philosophy (a little less blunt power, a it more ridability) i think it will even be ideal to plodder through jampacked traffic in central london. And then wrench it open to get to the boat to Santande in half an hour (without changin gears more than a time or four :-)
