I've loved the Varadero but since not available in the USA, it was a no go. Now with the S10, no chain and more technology and likely better price too. No contest for me even if the Varadero was released here.

Just curious, does whether they bring the Super Tenereere depend on pre-sale orders or is it definitely coming? Ship dates, etc.?

It is definitely coming but on the PDP program just like Yamaha did with the FJR back in 2003. There is therefore no risk to them since all bikes are covered by a deposit and thus real sales with no inventory sitting in dealerships. They discontinued this plan (maybe 05 I think but not sure) with the FJR after they found there was a market here in the USA for such a bike. I think it is a good message to send to the companies that make bikes that the USA is changing from just cruisers and sport bikes which is so different than most countries. The fact of this has burned them in the past i.e. trans alp, africa twin, FJ1200 and others.

So, they're only going to ship the ones for which they have a deposit?

my dealer has told me yamaha is planning 1500 units for the usa if the presale orders are more than 1500 they have time to gear up for more!
i would assume some dealers will order for inventory in there market to have units for customers that need to see them or are unaware they are coming over here.
yamaha came up with 1500 units as compred to the 1800 units bmw gs sells in us a year!

Not really. The only thing the PDP program does is define the amount that are brought in.

I guess technically you are correct that if no one a put deposit on one then none would come in.

Yeah. That's kind of my point.

Just curious, what kind of dealer support can you expect?

One of the appeals of buying a Yamaha, Suzuki, or Honda as opposed to some of the European bikes is the large dealer network and the ability to get something fixed almost anywhere.

If someone rode a Super Tenererere into a random Yamaha dealership in the U.S., would they be able to service it? Get parts for it?

That is a REAL scare as I went through that with my FJR 1300 AE before I finally got rid of it (and the problems)!

But I honestly figure after looking back on it that I just had 3 LOUSY dealers and since Tony is only 250 miles from me, I will have EXCELLENT dealer support if I need it.

Best Regards,

Shane

You can read about the PDP on Yamaha's web site. It is their ballgame and their ball, so if we want to play, we go by their rules .

So will Yamaha be bringing the S10 to the motorcycle shows this winter? I'm assuming they will, but don't remember if the FJR was on display during that PDP. I'm one of those that need to try it on for size before dropping the bucks.
