2010 1200cc Yamaha Super Tenere gets R1 lights
The twin lights are side-by-side (rather than stacked as per the 660 Tenere) and appear to have R1-style projector bulb units.
The silhouette also shows boxy off-road-style panniers, reinforcing Yamaha’s hints that the bike will be going head-to-head to with BMW’s R1200GS, rather than aiming at Ducati’s more road-biased new Multistrada.
Super Ten technical highlights we already know about are:
- 3-mode ABS
- shaft drive
- linked brakes
- switchable engine maps
- ride-by-wire throttle
- traction control
- side-mounted radiators.
Given recent increases to Yamaha’s prices (the new R1 costs £12,499, new R6 is £9000), it’s difficult to estimate the new Super Tenere’s price when it arrives later this year. Our current bet is £11,000.
