Super Tenere News – launching Feb 24th 2010

I don’t know why I’m still excited about this.  Every hyped up big launch bike in the last six months has had a fundamental flaw which has made them a great disappointment.  Honda’s VFR1200F promised so much, but was completely unsuited to any of the tasks Honda said it would be perfect for.  Ducati’s super advanced Multistrada ticks so many hi-tech boxes, looks great but, as yet unconfirmed, the estimated tank range is miserly regularly taking the bike to a garage forecourt isn’t my idea of touring excitment.  Having said that the report in last weeks MCN, where reporters chased PR model Multistradas around Italy after coming across them in traffic was an exciting look at the bike, please let it last more than 200 miles before needing a drink.

So what are the chances Yamaha will get everything right with its new adventure bike?  Will it also suffer from short sighted flaws, or will the company’s tight finances have led to corners being cut?  A video reveal on Feb 24th will give us some insight, and the full unveiling will happen at the Turkish MotoPlus Motorcycle show on Feb 25th.

Come on Yamaha, surprise us….

Here’s the latest update from Yamaha


Just beyond the horizon is a new dawn.

A new future for adventure motorcycling.

The new Yamaha Super Ténéré

Born in the Ténéré Desert, our new intelligent adventure travel bike boasts a raft of suitably rugged features to take you anywhere – on and off road. For the twists and turns on those challenging mountain roads or out in the countryside, the new Super Ténéré comes in a super sharp riding package with cutting edge brakes, great handling, perfect torque, power and amazing traction. And with an extensive range of specially tailored adventure accessories, this bike can be even more personalised than before.

Soon, you’ll be able to see all of this for yourself.

Right here online at 8.00pm CET on 24th February, we’ll be launching an exclusive new Super Ténéré video and detailed photos and information. For the hardcore adventurers among you, we will also reveal how get your hands on a new Super Ténéré in time for summer.

Then, on February 25th, the covers will really come off. At the Turkish MotoPlus Motorcycle show, against the fitting backdrop of Istanbul – “The Gateway to the East” and 2010’s Capital of Culture – we’ll be officially launching the bike that’ll take you to the most exotic, far-flung corners of the planet.

But don’t worry, if you don’t manage to join us at the Turkish MotoPlus Motorcycle show, you will get your chance to see the new Super Ténéré live as it will be on display at various motorcycle shows throughout Europe in the Spring.

And, don’t forget, if you haven’t yet registered here, it’s worth doing now. That way, you’ll get an email as soon as more information is posted.

Just beyond the horizon is the very best part of this adventure: the ride.

Get ready for it.

The new Yamaha Super Ténéré. Go beyond.
