Do we even know if the updated S10 is coming to the USA shores?

Yamaha USA's website doesn't show any Super Tenere's, old models or new.

Looks like Yamaha is listening. Good for them. The updates are a big step in the right direction.

The future of ADV bikes will be all about selective ride modes.

I hope the updated S10 sells well.

Mode bikes. A new category.

Eventually to be followed by SuperMode Bikes like the 2016 R1200GS with Mega Modes, like at least 200 Modes.

Or the CB1000MMM.

They don't have to be fast because you need time to concentrate on the modes.

MagaModo maybe?

March 2014 is what we have heard.

Question

So, question, anybody, on the 2012 or 2013 if you have it reflashed do you lose the 2 mode option?
Also, will the dealer perhaps be able to reflash the 12 or 13 with the new 2014 flash?

I'm in assuming the pricing is close to what it is now (without the electronic suspension) and the ECU doesn't suck. Cruise control will be great!

I tested a Tenere a couple weeks ago and was very happy the way it was. Now that cruise and reliable selective suspension is on the table, Yamaha has sealed the deal.

Can't wait!!!

To me it doesn't sound like the power increase is a re-flash...but it could be the marketing spin, I suppose.

From The big Super Tenere thread.

New Super Tenere 1200 at EICMA in Milan

Hi guys

Yesterday I was in the opening day in the fair Eicma in Milano. It was the only day I could go so in my new role as a blogger I tried to have a press accreditation…. And they agreed!!

So, I was lucky enough to visit the fair from 9 to 12 just with the press (all the girls smiles for me) and see the stands without people. Then, the rest of the day was also for trade companies so it wasn’t crowded.
Anyway, as very “professional” blogger I am (!!) I have interviewed a Yamaha guy to know the details of the newSuper Ténéré 1200.
I haven’t found the most informed guy in the stand and I think I knew better the differences we saw from the bike exposed in comparison to my old SuperTen so please don’t blame me if there is something that you know from the new bike and I don’t explain. Te guy realized the information he gave me was poor so he promise me to send me a press kit ... see if they do and when ...

This are the main differences I saw:

- Change of decor (one more... )
- New dashboard
- Windshields different in the two versions (high and low ) and manual height adjustment in 4 positions . I don’t know if it the inclination can be modified. Bar for holding the GPS .
- Electronically controlled suspension with two functions, sport and city (he wasn’t sure)
- Improved engine, more power (He had no idea how many HP, two or three …)
- I guess it will be two versions with electronic suspension as an option. The one with electronic suspension has a plastic cover on the side.
- New mirrors (nicer)
- LED indicators (it was time to change those the old ones that looked like a Chinese scooter )
- Modified tail
- New aluminum kickstand. No center stand?? (see pics)
- Cruise control
- New panel under the main light

Anyway ... the truth is that I was expecting something more, perhaps a dirt oriented version. But they improved a great bike, so we have XT1200Z for more time.

It was the future in 2010 when the 1200 Multistrada showed up.
Now that Yamaha caught up with the trend, on the 1200 class of bikes, only the Guzzi has no selective riding modes, I believe. Triumph explorer does? And most have a version with semi-active suspension.

Well, we (Moto Guzzi) sorta do (different maps). With the free software GuzziDiag to set, read and write maps, plus a free version of TunerPro we can edit the map.

I have two maps that I flip flop between, one gets a little better MPG, but I like the other map better. Course, these can be modified and changed, just takes 3 minutes to load a map from the laptop.

The TEX does not have riding modes, it has a throttle. There are 3 levels of TC, and ABS is selectable. Not the same as Rain mode or Sport mode on other bikes. To my mind it's an OK item to have but a bit gimmicky really.
