Yamaha Tenere 750 given Italian makeover

Published: 16 June 2011

Underneath this all-new exterior is a 1989 Yamaha XTZ750 Tenere that has been given a complete makeover by Italian firm GP Design.

The bike has minimal changes to the bodywork apart from a complete respray and has been called Black Masai which mixes the older bike mechanicals with some modifications to the bodywork, a new front mudguard, some black painted chassis and suspension parts and changes to the front lights for a new look.

Changes to the Tenere really aren’t that massive in terms of changing them. The respray in black and silver gives the bike a different look. Black painted wheel rims, fork legs, engine parts and the new look front mudguard all work well together. Even the front lights are the same, just painted black and the front cover has been removed.
