The USA will eat this bike up. There's a Yamaha dealer around every Conner. You cant find a KTM or BMW unless you go to a really big city.

Surely the more bikes in the sector the better. The problem with the Varadero is it's a 10 year old design. The new S10 looks serious.
I'm interested to see if Yamaha are smart enough to bring out an off road bike and a TDM streetbike. Lets hope so...

I have been thinking i the same direction, hopefully Yammi lunch to bikes with the same basic chassies. The TDM900 needs an update to so...

- A new adventure/touring bike 1000/1200cc 17/19" wheels, (more street oriented). Replacing the TDM900.

- A new adventure/offroad/dual bike 1000/1200cc 18/21 wheels(not likely), (more offroad/dual oriented). The SUPER T.

Well its a dream, but the upcomming bike will proberbly be a really good street/dual/touringbike with offroad look, when it comes. I am sure.

Almost the same, I'm not afraid of other brands but if there is a japanese equivalent I'll take it every time. It's funny, but I upgraded from a TDM850 to a Strom and like you at some point the Strom will need to be replaced and if Yamaha gives me a better option I might take it. If they give me a MUCH better option I'll take it sooner than later.

Northrider is correct in that BMW owns that (big GS type) market right now, but that can change. I've met a lot of former BMW owners on Stroms that got sick of the whole BMW thing and went to the Suzuki because it did what they wanted. As for the Varadero story, it was never available here, but from what I've seen there was nothing about it that made me want to switch, maybe I'd change my mind after a ride, but at least not on paper. So Yamaha has there work cut out for them, but if they listen and give what their target audience wants they could get customers from all brands.

I'm not holding my breath either as these things often end dissapointing, but it'll be fun to watch the evolution of rumors and predictions as it gets closer to an unknown release date.

YAMAHA SUCKS THE BIG ONE....I lost all faith in them. I"v had many bikes over the years but have put more miles on my XV920rh and TDM850 (in 80s & 90s) than everything else to date. I even built race bikes around both of these motors. After patiently waiting for years for them to bring in TDM900 and the beloved TRX (and few other bikes never available in NA), I finaly built up a hate for the company and with the begining of Suzukis TLS and than the Vstrom in 2002 I never looked back. I will suport the company that provides all of its product to everyone regardless of financiial demografics.

YAMAHA does not deserve this attention...They will never fullfil your needs unless you r a cruiser dooser.

yea the japanese manufacturers do suck. They make a watered down bloated big dual sport or 2 but very little else in that segment. KTM and BMW are where its at. But the FJR made it here cuz people spoke up so maybe the super 10 makes it here somehow
