A point to far in the past to see, Yamaha. Honda.
I just read an email from Yamaha USA, to another inquirer in which they fain ingnorance about this vehicle and attempt to indicate that there is an aspect involving the cost of bringing a bike from Europe into the US and sales.
Total incongrueity!

Seemed like he was under the influence.

Total bullshit they are not bringing it to NA. I could not find an email so I mailed them a letter. They responded last time to a general letter about a bike like the ST. This letter specifically identified the bike and links so they could see what I was talking about. Can only hope, and that all the extra bullshit gadgets will be minimal. I want switchable non linked ABS, but no traction control or other electronic engine, suspension, braking type management. Still hoping as I have faith in the system!

When I was at the Long Beach International bike show in December, I spoke directly to the Yamaha sales people at the show about this subject. They were well aware of the project, but said it was under wraps in Japan and had no specific information about it or it's availability in NA or the US. However, interest expressed at the show was very high. I told them to make sure they passed that tid-bit along to the bosses who make the decisions. They said they already had and the suits were well aware of it, but that was all the information they were getting back.

Amazing new Super Tenere design

Hello all.
Have you seen those "genius" designs?
http://www.tenere.ch/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=1461

Or thouse amazing Youtube clips?
http://www.tenere.ch/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=1743

I was happy for many years with my Africa Twin... but if Yamaha make somthing likes this it would be worth spending some hard earned money.

New detail revealed!

From some Yamaha source here in Europe: the bike will be officially presented on February 28.

Only two colors available: blue and gray.

Only one full-optional version including alu-panniers will be initially sold.
Booking will be performed only by Internet to avoid stock bikes and price lowering (prepare to wait a month to get the beast).

Price in Europe will be 15.200 euros (more than a stock GS1200 and 2k more than a KTM990).

Greetings

I dont't think that Yamaha will perform an euro-dollar exact exchange.
Take the FJR1300, here in Italy it costs 17.990 euro, whlle in USA it comes at 16.290$.

Expect a price tag near the 14.000 $

Yeah, you're probably right there. With the base price of BMW's 1200GS/GSA at 15-17,000 here in the US, I'd think Yamaha would have to price the new SuperTen accordingly if they want to sell units.

I look forward to this machine - but i hope the online order thing doesn't preclude a test ride. No way would i piss 13 grand away on a bike i can't demo first.

Was hoping it would have a bit bigger fuel tank and way lower weight.
The GSA got similar weight but a 33 l tank and (the new GSA) probably a few more hp than the XTZ.
You would think in 2010 they would be able to make the bikes a bit lighter?
Still want to test ride one if it ever comes to Australia.

It starts to be like the Honda VFR1200F...it is not doing that well after all.

Aside from the price tag, the wet weight (if true) is simply crazy!
261kg is 30kg more than a standard GS and close the GS ADV.

Who ever will touch dirt with a 15k (euro or $) and 260kg beast?
I seriously start thinking than a Transalp 700 is a better adv bike than this one...
