Guess so but I did not count Super Tenere models although the new T7 is also a twin  :o

I'm not sure that it will have crappy suspension, the S10 has great suspension, I have yet to find the limit where it starts doing stupid things.

Was an adventure ride once with a bloke on a S10. Unfortunately for him, his suspension very much found it's limits and after hitting a washout, cartwheeled him over forwards. It didn't end well for him or the bike.

With all respect, you only get cartwheeled forward if your front wheel hits a rut/hole it cannot climb out of.

Nothing to do with suspension, perhaps a small degree of blame on wheel size?

I did a grand forward somersault on my first Tenere back in "84 on the desert run through Botswana. Hit the outgoing lip of a large pothole which lifted the front and loaded the back. When the back wheel hit the same lip the whole bangshoot got launched into a forward summy. Left me and the bike not well off.

I really like the looks of this bike, it's hardly wider across the crank than the width of the front forks.

You'd also get a very far range with those nice alloy fuel tanks on the back.

This is basicly the bike they have been teasing us with, EICMA will reveal hopefully something not far from it.

Interesting AT engine 86kg, MT07 49kg. Hoping they can keep this bike to the 660Z's weight at least maybe even lighter.

Can't see that being true. Then they might as well not have bothered.
