Really looking forward to seeing what Yamaha offers.....a big dual sport worthy of offroading without the European pricing would be fantastic...

You can be sure if it's built to the same specs as the 990 it WILL be similiarly priced.

Here in Norway it may well be prized higher than 990adv because of the more cc, unless it's underpowered.

Doesn't that Ducati look like it has 17" front wheel? And the exhaust pipe exposed underneath? That's no Adventure...

Wanna see more of the Yamaha, looks intriguing. What are the chances of stateside? We still don't have the Tenere Jr.

anyone notice the rim/spoke design???
looks like the rim has an inner attachment point for the spokes & thus the wheel is tubeless.


anyway,
if it's a beast that's what i would expect.
this 1200cc bike is aimed at the big gs

whereas the 660 tenere (w/ 21" front) is aimed at the smaller gs

so yamaha has fired a shot across bmws bow.
interesting to see what time frame honda shows things off.

ok the shaft drive is real and looks exactly like the greek pics design.
in fact i see alot of the same design elements & this lead me to believe those greek pics are indeed a spy shot of the real bike.

the 2 headlight on the show tenere could be just for looks as the spy shot uses a similar smooth headlight like the 660 tenere. it's suppose to look like eyes of a person wrapped in northern africa desert head dress (think the dakar sticker) OR the bike will have dual projectors and the spy pic has a temp front light & maybe a temp big intake (which is only seen in the 1 pic).

Was it just me or did it appear to be a shaft drive? Should be nice competition for the 1200GS.

Is it just me, or is that one looooooonnnnnnggggggg swing-arm? Is that an illusion due to angle of pics and the fact that the other is a mockup? Or is it due to the type of shaft-drive Yamaha is going to use?

I don't know why the states are getting hot and bothered. If we can't get the thumper Tenere, why would we get the Super? If I was Yamaha and wanted to get serious about the Adv. Market, I'd intro the single first, test the waters so to speak and get the real word out, then introduce the Super.

We won't see it.

BUT, it looks promising....

I'm surprised we haven't seen a "My Wee will beat it in the twisties and offroad and be more reliable" post yet...............





I welcome anyone that wants in on the game and would love to see some Japanese competition for the big GS. Seems like they're talking the right ingredients for the big bike adventure crowd (mostly street with some fireroad). Could be fun.

I'd like to hear some more on the ABS. 3 positions?

The Yam, yes it shows shaft on the frame/engine images. So IMO it'll be worthless offroad. (Overweight and no/limited gearing).

well there is a push by some internally from yami na on the tenere so i would not count that as a definitive no to the us. the us loves big things and so i can see the supper here also. honda maybe have a blind eye to all the bikes bmw sells & how many stroms are on the road, but yami does not work that way.
