Yamaha XTZ 700 Tenere Twin concept
I just wanted to show you guys this concept picture I roughly pasted together.
The parts are from a Yamaha MT-07 engine and frame with YZ 450 forks, wheels and swing arm and Tenere 660 tank fairing and seat unit.
I'd love to try and build it but realistically that's not going to happen anytime soon. Hopefully Yamaha are already developing it...surely there has to be a market for something like this??

A bike similar to this has my intrest. I'd like something a little more comfy for big milage days than the KLR but, still able to get off pavement pretty far.
If they beat Kawasaki to it, well, that'll be Kaw's bad.
Yamaha, on my wish list is, All steel frame. No cast aluminum bolted in sections, save that for the street bikes. And, some stout tubes running under the motor to mount a good skid plate on.
Lots of gallons in the tank, a sturdy and large rack on the back , high ,tucked in exhaust, small windscreen, good lights and brakes, 17" rear, 21" front.
Yep, that'll work.
