Finally !!

Finally something that looks RIGHT.

I'm cynical as hell that this will ever make it across the Pacific to the USA but it's good enough that I will call Yamaha and ask.

If it is available here, I'll be first in line at my local dealer with cash and an order request.

FINALLY!

Is the regret at the authentic trail bikes

Huuuummmm and this "Competition white" finished, is really cool.

I think that this bike will can a big bite of pie the adventure bike, and in Europe can remove more sell of KTM an GS650, overall if your price is around 7000 euros

And the pictures taken in the Todra gorges are more suitables for give adventure look

More information

So I called the 1-800 number, can't say as I get a warm fuzzy that message will get relayed to anybody making bike importing questions. Seems the number is more related to actual customer service issues. Anyway, that was just my feeling. They do record the call is you allow it, so maybe if enough people call somebody MIGHT listen.

On a side note, I saw a XT660X supermoto in Curacao of all places. So the Yamaha importers can figure out how to get a bike like that to an island with a few hundred thousand people, but we can't get them to the US with 300 million? I dunno, maybe it came from Venezuela or Columbia, but still aggravating.

Hello thumpers,
today Yamaha has announced the brandnew Yamaha XT660Z Tenere
here in Germany.

I am totally crazy about that bike and will sell my 640 adv for sure.

According to the information I've got from their website, I have
scribbled this photoshop picture as a first impression.

Regards,
Svenja Svendura

If they bring that here, I'm in. Looks like decent range, proven engine and a package that looks pretty badass.

After 10 years of abusing my 660 Tenere, seems that a new toy
caught my eye ...
