Something to start you off on an epic adventure, or just a comfortable and practical way to head to the shops, this Super Tenere is today’s bike of the day.

Seller says

“This XTZ1200 Super Tenere is presented in very good condition. It comes with a year-long MoT, brand new tyres, front beak panel, infill panel, hard luggage, a top box, heated grips, tall screen and finally, a Sat-Nav. Forget the BMW GS, everyone has one. Nick Sanders love them.”

MCN says

“There was a time when Yamaha’s Tenere range of bikes ruled the earth, literally. As desert and dirt blasters for Paris-Dakar like competitions, the name Tenere became synonymous with adventure and off-road riding. Then it all went quiet and BMW took on the mantle of Adventure bike champions with its modern-day GS range. Yamaha’s revival started with the 2008 XT660Z Tenere, a delightful 660cc single-cylinder thumper dressed in traditional desert-romping plastics (high screen and seat height, long suspension). The XT1200Z Super Tenere carries this adventure theme further.”
