Xtz750

I have one



Bought used for less money than a GS set of cases .-)
only "soft spot" the electric regulator/converter on the early series, that as in Africa Twins overheats and may burn all the rest of ignition... but nearly all the bikes still avalaible were modified .

I really never would understand Japanese bike makers brains ..
In Europe these bikes were a success, still have a place on the market and they discontinued them ... just to see BMW GS and LC8 sales soar,
In Northern America, were are best suited for , long distance confort, good offroad capability, long range ... were NEVER offered and even discouraged the "grey" import.

Superténéré is an excellent bike, a little top-heavy , but with a very good frame, a nevending motor for power and durability and suspensions soft... but with right displacement. Standard brakes are PERFECT for offroad use and knobbly tires, but may be easily improved for road use simply changing the pump with a wrecked sportbike one

Yamaha may just take the old XTZ, throw into the TDM900 injected engine (easy task), a little restyling of the fairing, a good front fork and shock .. and voilà : the LC8 killer... 105 hp, dry weight under 215 kilos and should cost no more respect TDM ...in Europe around 8500 euro...
but they are fools...

You hit the piston right on the head. U.S. dealers are full of cruisers sometimes it's hard to find even a dual/sport parked in a showroom. They need to buy a clue, pull their head out or whatever it takes to build and distribute these versatile machines world wide.I for one, would be more then happy with handing over 10 grand for bike like you've described. KTM is a bit up there for their long term reliability issuses. Yamaha has requested customer info and interaction/reaction for their new v-max. We should write in a candidate for production 900 Tenere for Prez!!!

I am about to put my 1991 Super Tenere (750) up for sale. It is in Canada (outside of Toronto), but if there is interest, it could obviously be shipped. I haven't even had a chance to think about what I want for it - I had assumed I would never part with this unique bike. The bike is mint with just over 30,000 km. I replaced the stator with a new 'finned' unit to avoid overheating. Other than engine guards and a whited-out windscreen (I have the original too), the bike is pretty stock. I will post pictures and details of the bike soon.

Where abouts are you? I'm in Totenham. Wondering if you're the guy I spoke to few years back that was a flag man for the steam train crossing.
Sent you a PM, I might be interested.

hiya,
just bought myself an XTZ750 Super Tenere.

it needs some work to get it thru its MOT but nothing major.

i've been riding a TDM850 for a couple of years and wanted something for a RTW style trip.
this bike came up at half what i was looking to pay so i grabbed it.

more pics to follow when i have it on the road

That's a beautiful bike toneski, congratulations! I ride a 93' TDM850 and would love to get my hands on an XTZ750. However I live in the States where they were not imported. Please post more pictures when you can. A man can always dream!

Cry

We never get the cool bikes

I would love to have a Yamaha.

Maybe a yellow R6? but there aren't many curves here.

FJR, no, not for me

FZ1 OK maybe, but I am not a fan of UJM

What is happening at Yamaha?
