There's just something special about a Tenere photo when it's TC1, T mode and no disfiguring clutch mod.

Beautiful photo.

Based on what you normally post with a full-size Tenere...expectations are VERY high.

A weekend with the baby Tenere

Here is my opinion
Nice bike, really easy to ride, simple, logical, few electronics… At least in Spain (and I think in Europe) is the last authentic adventure bike in its classic concept. Probably the KLR owners could like it, similar concept.
It weights 183 kg an has 50HP so no lots of power for its weight but the engine is smooth, no vibrations at all.
With its 23 liters it can run more than 400km, is very frugal.
After riding the ST it seems light and small. Very nice and easy to ride off road and ok on road. You can ride 130 to 140km/h constantly with a decent wind protection.
I rode the ABS version witch has shorter suspension. Also like the ST there is not a switch to unable the ABS and it has road tires, so a bad combination to try it properly off road …
In general is a nice bike but is practically the same than the ’92 Tenere I had long time ago: unpowered, heavy and bad suspensions, Yamaha didn’t improve it much in all this time.
But I like it, it’s the logical bike to the ride I use to do. All the owners I know are really happy with it, very reliable. I would like to do a solo trip next year and I need a lighter bike than the Super Tenere, so it could be the Tenere 660.

I had a nice ride near where I live:

Any shots of you jumping the bike over to the other side or do you prefer doing that only with the heavier Super Tenere?
