Yamaha Super Tenere

Post by djalbin » Mon Oct 26, 2009 10:44 pm

Yamaha wins two World Championships (Ben Spies at FIM World Superbike and Rossi at MotoGP) and then they display this bike at the Tokyo Motor Show?

The designers and engineers need to spend more time with the M1 and R1 bikes.

Good luck putting any miles in while sitting on the Super Tenere. That seat looks like you would come away missing a few body parts.

It does look cool from the front though. Great idea for dressing your bike up for Halloween.

Looking at the front, I think they're aiming for the Taliban market next year.
Are we going on somewhere?

Obviously not looking to produce it that way, at least I hope not for their sakes, unless of course they are selling mainly in Dubai. It does kinda cool though, leave all the crome home though, give it some real body work and I want to know what's powering it along with the rest of the specs. Looks like a parallel twin but, can't really see much. I like the pipe comin' out the arse end though

Actually, after looking at the front of it again, Imagine the colours in dark brown, give the blue lights up front a bit of red tinge, and Veoule,

We have our first Star Wars, JAWA bike.

Yeah obviously it's just an idea that they want to know if it is worth funding
the research and development for. I say, GO FOR IT!

Adventure touring NEEDS a lighter, less bulky, cheaper
competitor to the R12GS. (Although if they put all those features on, it'll
be none of those things).

I wonder if a TDM900 motor can be jammed into the current 660 Tenere?

I realize it's the Dakar Rally logo (actually kind of creative for a promo bike) but the real Super Tenere is more likely to look like one of the following photos. The promo bike would probably make more sense if it was displayed with an actual concept bike.

Since KTM has withdrawn from the Dakar Rally maybe Yamaha is thinking of stepping in to fill the void.

Dakar Rally - KTM Withdraws!
The limiting of motorcycles with a displacement of 450cc forces KTM, the long-term dominator of the Dakar Rally, to withdraw.

I may consider the Yellow concept if it comes to production...... and if this DAMN neck problem would clear up.
