Tenere: Choosing a 2013 or 2014

Besides the obvious differences in these model years. I guess the 14' has different bars/bar mount, different windscreen, computer, cruise control, minor motor changes.

It looks like a 13' can be had for under $10k. What's the best price for the 14'? And, is it worth the difference.

Before you flame me, I know there is another thread about the 13' vs 14' and I have read that thread. I am just trying to get an idea of the actual cost difference in an effort to try to decide between the two.

Thanks,
Huero

Basically depends on what you want to spend. If the new suspension with CC, heated grips, windshield, etc is going to make you happier spend the few extra thousand and get it. If $$ is the main issue you've probably already answered your question. You can probably also find a very well farkled 12/13 in Flea Market for less than you'd buy a new 13 and save many thousand in accessory costs.

JDrice,
Can you tell me what dealership you bought from?

I am a little ways from northern Id. But, not too far.

Thanks,
Huero

That extra $2000 investment will pay off big time each and every mile you ride the bike and adds lots of value to the whole riding experience. The accessories can be purchased later over time as you ride the bike and take time to sort out what accessories are the best, if any!
I think you will really like the Super Tenere, congratulations on your impending purchase!

I asked the same thing on the above thread. I appreciated the answer's I got and I am choosing to go with the 2014. Found one for $2000 more than the 2013 model and I think it will be worth spending a little extra in the long run. Good luck with your search!!

I'm currently wrestling with the same decision. The way I see it, the 'in the long run' idea wouldn't make a difference. 5 years down the road they'll be worth about the same. Just comes down to the bottom price and options.

All the way. Had the 2012 for 2 years, so I know. Too many refinements on the 14 to list. It is by far the better bike. Many on here think they can make a 14 out of a 12 but it won't even come close. Everything about the 14 is BETTER.

I just got a new 2104 non-ES S10 for $11,200 out the door in NC. Most of the (new-old stock) 2012s and 2013s I saw around were about the same price. That made the decision VERY easy.

You think they have any more? I could fly and ride for that price.

Thanks,

Actually the Yamaha website allows you to see real inventory for the two S10 models closest to your location using your zipcode. Dealers in my area have a good inventory of 14's. From there you can go to the dealers website and generally they will have pricing listed. Good luck with your purchase!

Yamaha's website is not up to date in my area. Dealer websites aren't, either, tho.

I just put a deposit on a 2014 non-ES for $12,500.
