Hate to rain on anyone's parade but Yamaha's PR material for the show doesn't mention a super tenere. http://www.yamaha-motor.co.jp/global/motorshow2009/

if you look at the yami release all those bikes have allready been "shown" so really nothing new as of today right here right now.

if a mfg is gonna have a world release, they're not gonna post a pic of it on their website prior to that world release. wouldn't that kinda defeat the purpose of a new release?
what we get are spy shots and such and maybe we what see above is that indeed.

That last pic hints of shaft final drive adv bike and IMO would indicate that Yami is going after GS territory here.. and I hope so :)
This is much like Honda going after BMW K RS LT bikes with their 2010 VFR1200...

there is something about this pics..........like if they were taken from a paper catalog on low ligth with a cell phone.

we see two versions, with and without knobbies.

the first pic looks like a desert background indoor pic........as on te launching showroom should be.

who knows , maybe it is just a joke.,

like this "best wish" italian design
