    Its a good thing they dont sell those here in the states because I would just have to go right out and buy one. I would think that would really fill the hole left by KTM discontinuing the 640 Adventure and not replaceing it with a 690 version. My biggest issue would be choosing between the desert tan or the red over white.:clap

    Not to mention all the money Yamaha is saving me and you (possibly thousands of other Americaans) in this economic downturn by not having this available in the USA... Thank's Yamaha!!! I keep my honda XR650L for many more years!!! That will save me thousands!!!:D :D

    This thread makes me want to nut. I think the tenere is the best looking adventure bike I've seen. To quote Wayne:

    She will be mine. Oh yes, she will be mine


    One day....

    Ya can't really compare these two bikes, they're completely different:
    the Tenere is a thumper 660cc's, the KTM a v-twin 990cc's, both allroads, but in any other way not alike. And indeed the price difference!

    You also buy a new car when the ash tray is full. Totally different bikes because you don't like the seat?!?

    iam 5,11 ,the seat does not let you move back but holds you forward their is a load of threads about it on xt660.com , plus its to tall for the wife to get on to the back of it, we looked in to lowering the bike etc in the end we got a bike we did not have mess with , i must say if it was just me useing the tenere it would still be in my garage plus if they make bigger engine model next year could be a 1200cc or a 900cc with abit of luck

    The bike worked without any problems, and fuelconsumption was about 0.42ltr pr 10km for the whole trip ( 1700km). Maybe I´ll post more later, I have a few videos from spectacular roads in the mountains. Total odometer this year is 6700 km (from april), best bike I ever owned!
