I know for sure it is faster, smoother, more stable, the traction control was better, the ABS was better, I loved the bike on mild off-road. I can't think of a way that it failed to the GS in any other way than fuel economy. Buy the Super Tenere. Yamaha of Southern IL has my old one for 11,000 I think.
As a commuter, sight see'r, occasional distance rider, and regular 2-ups, the Tenere on Heidenau K60 tires is hard to beat. And for all of those, I have ZERO interest in going back to a chain.
For more dirt in the mix and more mud, the Triumph would be great.
