2012 Yamaha Tenere

A new adventure motorcycle that arrived from Europe, the Yamaha Super Tenere immediatley became a hit when it hit US shores this past May.

The 2012 Yamaha Tenere is powered by a compact 1199cc parallel twin with a 270° crank intended to enhance torque and traction, as both pistons fire closely together, giving it the feel of a big-bore thumper with less vibration.

The Super Tenere is Yamaha’s answer to such bikes as the BMW R 1200 GS, Triumph Tiger 1050, KTM Super Moto Touring SMT and Ducati Multistrada 1200.

Yamaha says: “The Super Tenere is built for adventure. Engine mass is kept low for excellent handling. The narrow 2-cylinder inline engine is slim and compact for carving tight lines in twisty mountain roads.”
