Euro Preview Video

The Super Ténéré is a go-anywhere adventure machine, built tough to go beyond the beaten track with spoked wheels, generous ground clearance and hardy engine protection. The entire design is tuned to keep the bike’s mass low and central for perfect balance and light, agile handling at speed.

It packs the technology to go beyond the normal braking point with intelligent Unified Brake System with ABS stopping power.

This all-new 1199cc inline 2-clyinder engine delivers big power and effortless torque in a slim, compact, well balanced package. It lets each rider choose the perfect balance of safety, speed and fun with a three-mode traction control system that can easily be turned off when it’s time for some rear wheel steering on a loose surface.

And it’s been relentlessly tested to ensure that it’s in for the long haul, whatever conditions and challenges it has to face.

The new Super Ténéré is the perfect partner when you need a motorcycle that can handle the extremes – the intelligent adventure travel bike.
