The STen is heavy I'm getting 15km/ L . BUT it does everything better then my 2010 xt660z tenere ! I love the S ten . When you test ride it don't do tar only you don't do justice to the bike . It's great off Road. I did a road trip to port Nolloth now in Dec it's a great tourer ! It's a great all rounder!

It is like Candyman said: It is a great all rounder. You won't regret it.

The price isn't really too high, but it's not cheap... With that low mileage it is probably round about right... You will probably be able to get another one with more mileage with far more extras at least, but that is your decision...

Hi Dawgs
I took the one in PMB for a test ride really nice bike goes very well then shot down to Durban, saw the bike i wanted 2010 model fully kited mint condition
with 30k on the clock, applied for finance approved phoned the owner but missed the deal by an hour  Fuck was i disappointed
So the search continuous i see there is one at Yamaha Goerge 2012 mod for 114k it is a bit far for me to travel maybe someone knows this bike ,states it only had one owner
So the time has come to sell my 660R

Honda Bloem have 2 a silver and a blue one. Silver 2010 30 000km odd a couple of extras R86 000 and the blue with no extras and 20 000km for R100 000

I got mine from a fellow dog with all extras for 100 000.00 and 44000km collecting this weekend.

Look around and you will find what you looking for.
