2014 Yamaha Super Tenere Photos/Images/WallpaperKnowing competition is high in the adventure-motorcycle market, Yamaha has upgraded its Super Tenere for 2014.
Yamaha now offers the base model, and the ES version with electronic suspension similar to what is used on the FJR1300ES. The latter was not expected to reach US shores, but Yamaha shocked many when the bike was set to be sold in America.Both the ES and standard models receive upgrades to their 1199cc parallel twins. The changes are claimed to improve power and torque, and provide smoother acceleration.Other improvements on both Super Tenere models are LED turn lights, a revised dash display, and revised heated grips with three settings. The Ride Modes were also re-calibrated for more notable differences between T (touring) and S (sport) settings.The Super Tenere ES version is only available in the Matte Gray/Matte Black color combo, and runs $1,100 over the standard’s price of $15,090.Attached above is a photo gallery of the 2014 Yamaha Super Tenere and the Super Tenere ES.

KTM Super ADV R + Lightning Motorcycles’ Richard Hatfield
byMotos and Friends by Ultimate Motorcycle
Hello everyone and welcome once again to Motos and Friends—the weekly Podcast brought to you by the editorial team at Ultimate Motorcycling. My name is Arthur Coldwells.
In this week’s first segment, Editor Don Williams rides KTM’s new 1290 Super Adventure R. This hardcore ADV bike is big, powerful, and a true expert-level machine. Interestingly, it has multiple points of adjustment within its highly capable electronics package, and Don discovered several big surprises where the bike changed personality completely. His is an intriguing look at one of the most capable off road ADV bikes on the market today.
In the second segment, I chat with Richard Hatfield, CEO of Lightning motorcycles. This silicon valley based manufacturer was founded in 2006, and having racked up several notable race victories (including Pikes Peak in 2013 with the late Carlin Dunne on board) Lightning have certainly dominated in racing terms. In another first, Lightning has just announced a new rapid-charging battery technology that may well bring electric motorcycles into becoming real-world, practical transport.
So from all of us here at Motos & Friends… we hope you enjoy this episode!
