Yamaha’s iconic660 Tenere Paris-Daker replica motorcycle is making a return for 2008 with an all-new design.
The 2008 Yamaha XT660Z Tenere uses the 660cc liquid-cooled single from the Yamaha XT660X in a brand new steel cradle frame, which is equipped with long-travel right-way up front forks and a sculpted aluminium rear swingarm and monoshock. Twin 298mm discs and Brembo brakes stop the motorcycle, and on/off road tyres hint that the motorcycle isn’t just off-road style – it should be capable of handling trail riding and anything an around the world trip will throw at it.
The motorcycle is equipped with a huge 22-litre fuel tank, which is placed under the seat to make the riding position more comfortable with less between the rider’s legs. The tall fairing, large dual seat, luggage rack and spacious riding position are all there to attract commuters and around the world adventurers alike.
A full range of accessories will also be available – luggage, bash plates and practical parts such as centre stands are all aimed at long-distance and on/off road use.
The motorcycle will initially available in white with red Yamaha ‘speed blocks’, khaki or black/grey. Prices are yet to be announced.
