Corrected.

We all know the hype surrounding new models. Give it another 6 months when its quietened down and people have discovered the true cost of their decision and the prices will then drop.

From the above link yam says:

XTZ660 Ténéré chassis highlights
• Vertical dual-bulb headlamp
• Wet weight 208.5kg with 23 litres of fuel
• Smart luggage system

Interesting they quote wet weight. Seems a big break from industry tradition, no?

I have the Pegaso with the same/similar motor. Plenty of info on the XT forums on solving the EFI snatchiness. Most fit a PCIII and play with the maps (which is what I have done too). Reports from Europe on the Tenere though seem to indicate that the fuelling is much better on this model. You would hope so anyway. Not sure why yamaha had to use quite so much steel up high around the gauges/headlight, when most manufacturers can use more appropriate poly-type materials whaich are lighter and don't bend so readily.

The Tenere is certainly more ADV ready than the Pegaso though - mainly suspension travel and fuel capacity.

Must of had a bit of work done to it to get to 51hp.

Stock they were good for about 35 hp on a dyno(factory claim was 46).

Had a 1996 TT600 Belgarda (same motor) with a cam (can't remember what sort) a Staintune exhaust and jetted to suit.

Was still only good for prob just over 40 hp , even with those few mods.

The 86 Tenere also porked up a bit over the original one as well , Dry weight 165kg to 179kg.
Also lost out on fuel capacity , 28 litre to 23 litre.

For me , the original is still the best.



A friend bought one new in 84 , still has it in his garage , hasn't been used for 5 years or so now.
Has 120 k on it and was using a fair bit of oil at that stage , but the motor had never been apart , and was still running OK , when it was retired.

Saw the new Tenere today in the flesh at Toowoomba Ag Show. I have to say that first impressions were quite impressive. Looks a solid, reliable unit which typifies the Teneres of the past. Straight out of the box it looks to be the goods, although it will need the little tweaks and adjustments to suit individual riders that most bikes end up getting. Finally some competition for the other manufacturers.

Craig, is Mick working the AgShow? If he is, get him to organise a ride on it for you while the F8 ride is still fresh in your head.

The new Tenere would look nice alongside your other projects though!!

Has anyone seen one in the flesh and has anyone riden one?
Seems to me that it is a buyers market right now and manufacturers need to get sales and that only comes through exposure and that only comes with sales.
Personaly I like the older style of bike from all the jap adverture bikes70/90s
All this wedge shaped stuff reminds me of jap cars of the 80s. Unfomrortable sharp bastards that now inheret the place put asside for
