    Yamaha has really kept the 2015 Super Tenere under wraps. I was really hoping for some leaks-spy photos by now. Hopefully when I wake up tomorrow there will be something on ADVrider. :norton

    My take, yamaha won't change the supertenere from the outside, only the eletronics (maybe, maybe the motor)

    so... no spy photos cause there ain't nothing to spy :evil

    I reckon all we'll see is an ESA shod range topper - with a few cosmetic and ergonomic changes.

    My guess;

    If they spin the current configuration I think it will be cruise control (it should be a simple migration from the FJR), electronic controls on the handle bars and a seat fix (sloping forward) plus bling..

    If they go with the new 3 cyl motor it will be a ground up redesign of the frame, The radiator will be moved to a more traditional place and it will have a chain.

    But who knows!

    YAMAHA is too dark these days. Too hard to take photos. All you get is blur. :deal

    you are doing just fins stromsavard. i can't speak a lick of french let alone spell it. you're right about yamaha. the new f800gs looks awesome. yamaha should take cues from that, but keep the shaft drive.

    Bold new colors!

    There usually isn't any spectacular change in the first years of such a new model. I wouldn't be surprised if the revelation is not much of a revolution.

    Yamaha's press conference isn't for another 2 hours. MCN UK had a "MT09 Supermotard" header - which has been pulled - so expect a derivative of the triple in another urban package.

    Anyone expecting a XTZ900 will be disappointed me thinks.

    This is sad but true...

    Dropped by the local Yamaha dealership... had many cruisers on the floor, but no S10, no FJR and, of course, no FZ09.

    Plenty of pirate accessories... no gear I would want...
