Yamaha Super Tenere 2010

Yamaha will be unveiling the long awaited Super Tenere adventure machine this Friday, February 26, 2010 at the Phillip Island World Superbike event.

Shown as teaser concept “bike” at the 2009 Tokyo Motor Show (see above pic) the new Super Tenere will be seen as competing sales-wise with machines such as the new Ducati MultiStrada, and BMW’s R1200GS.

From the cloth wrap concept, and other rumoured details, it appears the Super Tenere will be a parallel twin of 1200cc, featuring shaft drive and ABS. It’s also likely to feature many of Yamaha’s recent technological features such as “ride by wire” throttle, and multiple switchable engine performance maps.

More details on Friday.
