A heir to Yamaha's Dakar legacy instead of another supersized and overweight pig.  :thumleft:

I see there are a few guys who build the DTM900 engine into the Super Tenere750.   This one is looking pretty good.

Very nice job that guy in Finland is doing. But that's a LOT of work! (and downtime).

If the tenere costs 90k the super ten 900 will probably be 180k >:(

To me, a 900 makes a lot of sense, and a 1200 makes very little.


Absolutely! This craziness of making engines bigger and bigger must stop!
For me, a 750-900 would have MORE than enough power, but it mustn't be too heavy

i heard that they are making a new bike that will not use chain, shaft or even a belt  :o

this miracle 4 cylinder 928.35cc 2-stroke will use some kind of wi-fi to power the rear wheel and rear indicators  :pot:

its all horse-sh*t till the bike is on the dealership floors - stop spreading rumours you bunch of school girls  :peepwall:

I have it on very good authority that they have a 1200 prototype in country at the moment.
