Wet, a KLR is somewhere right around 400 lbs. If they do come over here, this is the first bike I've seen that I just might actually think about selling my KLR for. Of course, it would need a high fender, but other than that I like it . . . a lot.

Verrrrry nice! Here's hoping Yamaha Australia bring a few in for evaluation. Its OTD price might be affected by where its actually made. I guess it's bolted together at Yamaha's Italian plant. Maybe you Europeans could clarify this?
Now comes with less dak and more arrgh!

i come from ireland originaly. Gonna be moving back there soon from here in Montana. I have to disagree with the comments about no Dualsporting in Europe, spain has some awesome riding not to mention being a gateway to Africa the Sahara and beyond, Scotland has trails forever you've just got to look a little harder. I'll be dualsporting my ass off when I get back. There is a lot of restriction due to population...and sadly you dont get the wide open spaces on your front doorstep (thats why I'll be keeping a bike here) but I'll definately be knocking on The Yammy dealers door and getting one of those Teneres and gettin it filthy!!!

Maybe Yamaha will test the Tenere on the american market here in Canada? then I would be able to get over the fact that KTM doesn't appear to be releasing a 690 ADV in '08. That Tenere is very nice!!

Anybody got that Yamaha phone #? A phone call couldn't hurt!

THey need to improve it of course.

The tenere looks great! But I wish it had more than 1 cylinder.

Brilliant. Very well done. It was about time someone at Yamaha got serious about this segment again.

Boy, am I happy those sketches that had been circulating earlier this year were wrong...

when did 2 front rotors/calipers mean weak brakes? Forks do look a little spindly....
