I'm going to EICMA and are looking forward so see what Yamaha brings to the table.

I've had the chance to do a whole days test ride on the S10, and I liked it, but not enough to buy one - hopefully the updates will change that - otherwise I might end up with a R 1200 GS (LC)...
Yes, this is more or less the news I have... not big changes but something to update it.. We'll see...

Most everything on the Stelvio is out in plain sight. Obviously the valves and spark plugs are practically in your lap and the valves are screw type adjusters. When you need to turn the motor over to do the valves it's only a rubber plug in the front of the engine that needs removing to access the large nut on the crank. It's dry so no worries about oil etc.

You can balance the TBs without removing anything, nothing. The vacuum ports are right there and the single adjustment screw is practically staring you in the face.

You can reach the starter right away. Most of the wiring is accessible fairly directly, battery and fuses right under the seat.

The fuel pump can be removed without pulling the fuel tank off. If you do have to pull the tank it's about 6 bolts and 10 minutes or less.

You can remove the rear wheel super quick. The front is probably the same as the S10.

I think changing the oil is about the same except there is a separate oil for the transmission on the Stelvio.

The only job that seriously sucks on the Stelvio is servicing the clutch. The S10 has it beat there by a mile. But.... you can service the transmission without splitting the engine cases. So that's give and take I guess.

Over all it's probably about the easiest bike I've owned to service or work on.

As to what should Yammie do to the Super T, drop the price 3K.....what makes this a $15,000 bike? The fact that it's 4 grand cheaper than a GS?

Nobody pays $15k for it. (In the US anyways)

More like 12,500 currently. It's a freaking steal!

Bike is worth every penny of MSRP, in my opinion.

Difference here for the GS compared to an S10.

It really is a lot of bike these days for the money. Yep You can buy one most anywhere for around $12.5

I must say there are a few things I would like Yamaha to change for the new model, if it ever comes.
1. unleash the power (always good)
2. Move the cable from the throttle handle (obscures part of instrument)
3. Change the computer settings from the handle bars (much easier to do on the fly)
4. Cruise control and gear indicator (is just so convenient)
5. A little less weight is always nice
6. Be able to change screen height while driving
7. The most important thing. Keep the same quality, and I can promise Yamaha that they would sell the 1200 in very high numbers indeed.
The bike really just needs a few updates to make it be on par with the new bikes on the markets.
Just a few thoughts, what do you guys think, can we expect a new Super Tenere any day soon, and what would you guys want to change, to make it a better bike.
With that list of nit picks it sounds like you're a perfect candidate for a BMW

Yamaha should leave it alone and bring the 660!

Good to know, but I still don't understand what, even at 12.5K, makes it 4 grand better than a DL1000?

You don't know. But you would if you spent some time with both.

My brother and I have ADV'ed all over this country. He has the DL. I have the XT.

He loves his Strom, don't get me wrong. But just ask him if the XT (ST\S10) is worth the difference.
Not to mention there are a lot of Tenere owners who came down from the GS(A), and up from the Strom. ($-wise)
100 of us met in Colorado in June. Lots of crusty ole ADV riders too. Guys with many miles and many years.

Again, the Tenere is a steal for yanks. Not sure why we get it so much cheaper.

I had a DL 1000 for 8 years before switching to the Tenere. All I can say is I would pay
the difference again. Just all round more enjoyable and a better bike. I didn't mind the
DL and that's probably why I hung onto it for so long. Grass really was greener (or bluer)
on the other side.

If someone else doesn't do it before me, I'll post pictures and data here in this thread when I get back from EICMA.
