The 660 Tenere is a nice bike and might do well alongside the Super Tenere. Got aftermarket suport and that is what could get me to sell the XR650L. Well I should say I think Touratech supports the Tenere

What are you referring to as wasting time? I did make a mistake in believing touratech-usa supported the Tenere, only the super tenere

Over a KTM anyday.It's like comparing Ferraris to Porsches,one's flash and powerful,
the other starts and run all day!Think the clue is in "Enduro",a competition bike compared
to an overland bike-and it's 'heavy' due to all the Euro rules for road going machines,a huge
weight could easily shaved of it!Remember,twin discs,twin noise emmision controlled
cans/mufflers,fairing/screen,big comfy seat etc.......and a bulletproof motor,not a grenade!

Numbers are shit.

In stock form it pisses all over the current KLR, which is it's only direct rival in the US...

And here's a photo just for Speed Daddy x

Buy one secondhand in the UK for 3000GBP ($4800) and ship one across!
