Why the triple? The twin seems pretty nice too. I don't really know either bike that well though.

FZ /MT07 engines would imo make a nice Tenere as a replacement/update to the XT660Z which isn't particularly light and engine is a bit old in the tooth and underpowered whereas the Fz/MT07 is both light torquey and revvey for a twin .
I think the FZ/MT09 engine in a "super tenere" role may take sales away from the XT1200Z though may also temp more into the Yamaha stable as it would likely (or is that my wishful thinking) to be significantly lighter than the S10 and more powerful to boot (though that's more for marketing pitch) . If they did do a XT with the triple motor I'd consider trading in my 1st ED S10 which I've not been tempted to do sofar by either the 1190KTM Adv(too many bugs/issues) or the '14 XT1200ZE update.

Agreed, a light, smaller capacity twin would be ideal, at least for me.

My Yamaha dealer says Yamama will use the FZ09 motor as a platform base for various iterations in future. Just a matter of time until we see a lighter S10.

A first step in the direction is the new version of the MT-09 called Street Tracker with Scrambler-Attitude - Yamaha-definition ;-)

In the latest issue of the german magazine MOTORRAD is a report of new Yamaha motorcycles (15!) coming for 2015. On top of the list: a XTZ 700

it makes sense!! BTW, typically Motorrad magazine is very reliable source together with the Italian Motociclismo magazine... by far the top 2 mags.

The Yamaha rep told me they were releasing a ton of new bikes soon, and to expect some sort of new midsized adv/dual sport/tourer for the US market.

He may be full of shit, but he hasn't lied to me yet So there that is.

I think if there is a new midsized adv tourer it will have the FZ-07 motor. The FZ-07 is pretty rad, I took one out of the crate today actually. Should be enough grunt for an ADV bike. Maybe it will be lightweight and stripped down like the FZ-07..

It's a draw of the german Designer Stefan Kraft.

But I trust in Yamaha that they don't release another V-Strom, but a lighter, better looking and more characterful 800 GS!
