Oh yes. Lots of great bikes. Sounds like the Yamaha comes with ABS/TCS and luggage. I'm guessing about £12,500.
When you getting it then?

Yeah mate,

Hard to get to the building, pretty stupid to go there on a supertenere huh,they cussed my brother out once when he was taking pics inside their warehouse, he 's a trucker doing airfreight, so he delivers the occasional airfreightskid with a brandnew model to a warehouse, its my guess, that if, this is somebody best bet to be able to see the new super, it probably comes in by air through Schiphol (amsterdam) airport, probably, crated

Yep. Can't make it out for sure, but it's definitely not new.

Yamaha drip-feeds more news about Super Ténéré giant trailie including engine configuration ... Scroll down for the full story

The all-new Yamaha Super Ténéré is “ready for adventure”. Well, almost, but not quite. The latest media release has a few more details and we thought we'd try and share what's beginning to take shape - in our minds at least.

A “large displacement parallel twin engine” with shaft-drive and a 270˚ crankshaft will “offer unsurpassed levels of power, torque and traction - perfect for any extreme situation you face on your adventure” Yamaha tells us. Exactly what the capacity will be we can only speculate but 1200cc might be a smart guess.

The Super Ténéré will feature Yamaha's Chip-Controlled Throttle system (YCC-T) with traction control and a new “hi-tech” ABS system, as well as a Unified Brake System (UBS), which links front and rear brakes for rider comfort. Yamaha claims the braking system is intelligent enough to adapt to different terrain - on and off-road.

There's a strong hint of off-road about the Super Ténéré then, potentially pitching it closer to the BMW GS and KTM 990 Adventure than the likes of Triumph's Tiger. A beefed-up version of it's reliably managable XT660Z sibling (shown here) wouldn't be totally unexpected, only with a few more bells and whistles for long range riding. Yamaha is bragging about it's winning record at the Dakar Rally (which adds up more than any other manufacturer) so potentially at least there might be some substance behind the hype.

Other than that we await further news and at the very least a picture or two. Secretly we're getting a tad bored with this drip-feed style of marketing which is becoming more popular with new motorcycle models, especially when there are no pictures to look at. We preferred it when life was simpler. Let's hope the Super Ténéré shuts us up when it arrives.

No more info can currently be found at Yamaha's Super Ténéré website but stay tuned and you're sure to hear something.
