Yamaha Tenere 800?

When is Yamaha going to make a Tenere 800? This would be a perfect size for me. The BMW and Triumph 800's are nice, but we need more options.

I don't think the question is when, but rather if! Yamaha already did a bike that size (XTZ750), so the question is, will they bring it back (new version of course)? Personally I don't see it, unless popularity/sales of the other twin 650s/800s goes through the roof. Right now you've got the prissy BMW wannabe crowd driving the market (they are the tooth docs and gynos with all the money whom drink the BMW kool-aid), point being big expensive bikes are the hot thing, good news is that this trend is slowly changing....so there may be hope.

they do have a bunch of new things on the way. I am guessing the tdm is next with the 900 twin motor, hopefully they follow the mt and make it wicked lite

Hello there,
at the EICMA, Yamaha showed their brand-new MT 09 with a 850 cc, 3-cylinder-in-line, 115 hp engine. It's supposed to be the start of a whole new 'family' of mid-sized bikes of all kinds. A super-motarded version has already shown up a few days ago and will be on sale in early 2014.
Kind regards, Bambi

I think they may be better off with the MT-07 twin in Tenere form than the MT-09 triple. It would be lighter and perhaps give better engine characteristics than a triple would give for dual use, all just imo but I think a triple Adv bike is just wrong (ala Trumpet s efforts)

and if they do, the big question is do they use the new 850 triple motor or new 700 twin motor???

i thought at 1st the triple would be the awesome but now i'm hoping it's the 700 twin motor to save weight and get better a thumper-like motor with the twin. Yamaha has a history of building twin Teneres from the old 750 to the new 1200. they may stick with that and go after BMW vrs Triumph.
their engineers are very smart and have ridden enough 800gs and 800xc to realize the twin motor is a better off-road tractor to the high revving triple.

yes everyone knows about the triple...
that doesn't 100% mean an ADV bike however. there are other segments to fill too besides ADV such as sport touring and sport bike. that motard version was some bolt on pieces that Yamaha EU did and corporate liked it not a whole new segment of bike. it's also been said that Yamaha EU is pushing to use the twin for the ADV bike vrs the triple. we'll see. should be a great bike either way.

I say BOTH!!!!

I guess they'll make a 700 twin to replace the current tenere

AND

make a 800cc triple (kinda of thinking TDM replacement) for those looking for just a upright street bike.

As they lauched 2 nakeds, I can definitly see 2 "trails"

Word at my Yamaha shop here in Japan is that Yamaha is currently developing an adv bike powered by the new triple to compete with Triumph and BMW.
