    Hello!

    I'm currently riding a Kawasaki KLX250, and have been bitten by the adventure bike bug. To that end, I'm interested in the Super Tenere.

    Anyone riding one here in the UAE? Unfortunately, I find motorcycle availability and support generally poor here in Abu Dhabi.

    Thanks!

    I think there are 2 in Oman, but they are very rare in these parts.

    You're probably going to have an easier time finding a KTM 990 (one on dubizzle right now) or some form of BMW GS.

    Other than that you'll need to import one I think.

    Good luck, and let me know if you ever get down to Muscat!

    Thanks for that!

    I don't plan on a lot of hard-core adventuring, so it's now down to the decision between a Kawasaki KLR650 or Versys, or BMW G650GS. They're readily available here in Abu Dhabi.

    The versys is the least capable of the three mentioned (for adventure). I've owned the G650Gs and have driven the klr. The bmw is a lot more comfortable and has nice new functions like abs breaks and EFI instead of a carb.
    The bmw also has a lot more horsepower and more so less the same weight.

    I'm moving to dubai next month, maybe we can take a ride sometime.
