There were some changes added in accessories.

If you live outside the states, all changes that I know of were color of bike and seat, maybe stickers.

Good luck in your quest..
Gotcha, thanks for that. So for the years applicable here in the states (2012 and 2013) it doesn't sound like much in the way of changes... Good to know, thanks!

Ironically, the dealer has more invested in the 2012 model, and therefor may be more willing to negotiate on a 2013. Once a model sits on the floor for a certain period of time, the dealership has to start making interest payments on it to the manufacturer decreasing the amount of headroom a dealer has.

Manufacturer incentives to the dealer or customer can help clear out old models, which is why sometimes old bikes can be blown out the door way below MSRP.

Good luck with your purchase!

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Dunno where you live so...assuming you are NOT in the US.

The differences are only country specific (aside from paint).

UK, Ausie, SA, canada and Europe have an imobiliser in the key/ECU, 4 way flashers and a headlight flash button. Cant think of anything else

Something odd that I found out a couple of weeks ago. Canadian models are specified at 4000 mile services whereas most if not all others are 6000.
A Canadian guy (who was on one) and I had an argument over it and we ended up comparing manuals. Both correct !!!

Good catch Ray. I'd forgot about all those differences in the other models.

Has anybody checked the cardan joint lately (the universal Joint at the front of the drive shaft).

Mine is looking a bit slack with 22k miles on it. Thinking of replacing it.

Anyone else noticed this ?

I have a knock when the bike is on the center stand and I rock the wheel back and forth.

Come to that has anyone replaced theirs and can it be done without taking the front part off the bike ??

I didn't realize you had traded your Yamaha for a BMW

Assuming that you have really ruled out lash/wear in the rear pumpkin, the knock could be gearbox lash, u-joint wear, or spline wear. I think you would have to pull the side cover off to really tell which.

With all the thousands of miles that you & Karin have put on at speed AND overloaded in weight, you are one of our community extreme testers. Looking forward to hearing more about what you find.

Hi Jim,

Sorry to hear about your house. Glad you are ok. Will insurance cover it? Don't have an answer for your engine light. The guy who delivered my bike was pretty clear about having any work done during the first 12 months be done at the dealer or my warranty may go poof.

Gentlemen (and Pluric), I wasn't saying the Tenere should be a 250. The Honda 250 Nighthawk was just a low, underpowered and light bike - perfect for the parking lot safety course.

Let me ask the question a different way: Will a 1000 cc engine last four times as long as a 250 engine? Any technical reason to go with a 1200 engine other than to go head to head with BMW?

I assume that you mean I'm higher than a gentleman??? Shucks, thanks.

Just another option on the cc thing. Obviously the larger bikes don't have to work as hard
to maintain cruising speeds, carry loads or a passenger but the rider has to deal with the mass.
In theory they should live longer due to an under stressed life.

You could own a Smart car or Ford Expedition. It depends so much on what the intended use will
be as to how much vehicle you can get by with.

Look how many Tenere owners are interested in a 800-900cc version of the same bike. The 1200
can be overkill with what owners really need. Same reason to own several bikes. Sometimes
you just need less or more or a sport bike or a trail bike or a touring or a light errand or a ..........
