2014 Yamaha Super Tenere Video
When Yamaha introduced its Super Tenere (XT1200Z) in 2010, it immediately became a competitor of the world’s top-selling adventure tourer – the BMW R1200GS.
On paper, much looked like match, from the 1199cc parallel twin that produced 108.4 horsepower to the shaft drive, aluminum luggage, and traction control. But through the years, BMW’s R 1200 GS got bolder, and the Yamaha Super Tenere remained the same.
This changes for 2014. Yamaha has released a revised Super Tenere, and now offers the Super Tenere ES, which has electronic suspension. The ES system features four pre-load settings, three damping adjustments and an additional seven damping fine-tuning adjustments.
On both the standard and ES versions, ergonomics and riding modes were enhanced, along with some new styling and LED lights.
The highlight the features of the new 2014 Super Tenere and Super Tenere ES, Yamaha released the attached video, which presents the adventure tourer well.
Look for a test from Ultimate MotorCycling in the future; we’ll let you know how this revised Super T compares to BMW’s latest semi-water cooled R 1200 GS.
