MCN has obtained leaked spy images showing the new 2010 Yamaha Super Tenere in production form for the first time.

Greek website was given the set of three images by a mystery Yamaha insider, who took pictures of a scale model designed to show the bike’s design before a completed production machine was available.

Yes, it’s made of plastic – but in every other respect, it’s an accurate representation of the real Yamaha Super Tenere 1200 due to be officially released in 2010.

The cloth-wrapped concept bike from the Tokyo show was accompanied by a presentation revealing that the production bike is around 1200cc in capacity and is fitted with traction control.

Three-stage ABS will feature, and the concept models shaft drive is also seen on the bike in our new spy shots.

Styling is very similar to the current on/off road Yamaha XT660Z Tenere, indicating Yamaha is aiming to compete more directly with the BMW R1200GS rather than the more road-orientated Ducati Multistrada 1200.

Comfort looks to be good – a deep and spacious dual seat is obvious.

Full details in this week’s MCN, on sale Wednesday December 9.
