Let us 'Forbidden Fruit' areas know what you think of it.


On second thought, maybe not. It will just make it that much harder not to
be able to buy one.

That 660 looks the bomb.

Always wished they'd import it here, but after following the bike for many years it turns out it's got its problems/limitations. (kinda of a silly statement coming from a KLR owner!)

There's just something special about a Tenere photo when it's TC1, T mode and no disfiguring clutch mod.

Beautiful photo.

Based on what you normally post with a full-size Tenere...expectations are VERY high.

Its not my fault. My bike just does what it wants and I don't know how to change anything.

yup! Great area to ride though. I did about 45 miles of dirt or so down there today.

A weekend with the baby Tenere

Here is my opinion
Nice bike, really easy to ride, simple, logical, few electronics… At least in Spain (and I think in Europe) is the last authentic adventure bike in its classic concept. Probably the KLR owners could like it, similar concept.
It weights 183 kg an has 50HP so no lots of power for its weight but the engine is smooth, no vibrations at all.
With its 23 liters it can run more than 400km, is very frugal.
After riding the ST it seems light and small. Very nice and easy to ride off road and ok on road. You can ride 130 to 140km/h constantly with a decent wind protection.
I rode the ABS version witch has shorter suspension. Also like the ST there is not a switch to unable the ABS and it has road tires, so a bad combination to try it properly off road …
In general is a nice bike but is practically the same than the ’92 Tenere I had long time ago: unpowered, heavy and bad suspensions, Yamaha didn’t improve it much in all this time.
But I like it, it’s the logical bike to the ride I use to do. All the owners I know are really happy with it, very reliable. I would like to do a solo trip next year and I need a lighter bike than the Super Tenere, so it could be the Tenere 660.

I had a nice ride near where I live:
