No 660 Tenere, Africa Twin or Nuovo Falcone were available in Canada. Canada only gets the crap bikes.

But, don't you want a low slung chrome pony to cruise to the local coffee shop? It comes stock with loud pipes to get the biatches to look your way, and an unbalanced engine so your junk rattles and makes you feel all tingly...

Honestly, while I know the marketing people are right, I still think they are wrong. But, as usual, they never ask for my opinion.

sent a letter....ya, i'm ol skool...to Yamaha Canada last year asking if they could consider bringing us the 660 Tenere. they sent back a hat and note that said they probably won't.
send a letter.
get a hat.
and maybe someday they will hear the demand for such a machine.
