No beak!!!



Looks great. I wonder what it would cost? I wonder if it could achieve a similar on/off road balance to my old Transalp?
Hmmm, that could be a great bike! I hope designers take note of how sensible looking this concept is.

I'm more a road-oriented guy, but if this comes with the MT-09 price point and traction control I'll have my hands all over it. Right now my "perfect bike" is the MV Agusta Turismo Veloce, just because it's the smallest displacement bike to have ABS, TC, eletronic suspensions, cruise control and selectable riding modes...

Guess I could live without some of that for half the price

If they building something around the 3 cylinder motor likely it will be a city/street bike in adventure styling.

Man that is a damn good looking package.

If Yamaha were smart they would build it and I would buy it

IF they would build it I think people would line up to buy it. Awesome concept! Are you listening Yamaha?? The Super Tenere has been a success and has some ardent followers, but I cant help but believe that this smaller displacement, lighter bike isn't the one many of those Tenere owners really wanted.

Um, I'm one of those ardent followers. Actually, those that know me would more likely call it Tenere hypnotized. Never been so devoted to a single bike.



But yes, this concept is mouth watering. Exceptional. My only request would for it to be even more off-road oriented. Exhaust routing and suspension length could be tweaked in dirt favor, if I could truly have my wish.

Sign me up for 1, oh and my ninja 1000 will be traded it. Yes, yes, yes.

It's a lighter, more powerful tiger 800 with Yamaha refinement? Are you kidding me? This bike would put the tiger 800 out of business!! Oh, bump hp to 125 and squeak out a few more ft/lbs please.

I want a "adventure" bike that I can absolutely rip in the canyons but will survive offroad, with that awesome triple, right at 450lbs with 125hp. Oh, get it in under 11500 like normal motorcycles USED to be priced. I'll buy 2 (I'll finance the 2nd one)

So excited... Come on Yamaha!!

Lou

TransAlp. That's a banana boat compared to this. Maybe 45hp. Apples to acorns.

I've always liked the looks of the SuperT (as well as its reliability). But it is just way too big and heavy for me to consider. A smaller version, with at most 450lb wet weight, would have me visiting the local dealership. I really like that concept picture.

I think the 700 parallel twin is a better motor for the job, while making it lighter & performance oriented. Why cross over into what the s10 is and can do. Go for gold with the 700 motor, 21" & 17/18" wheels and an awesome suspension package.

THAT would smoke BMW & Triumph in the mid market and force KTM to give pause, plus make the KLR look downright poor.
Make it the performance oriented 660 Tenere that never show up for the party.
