    Despite the lack of an ABS "off" switch, Yamaha is serious about the Super Tenere's off-road ability, fitting it with a 19-inch front wheel and a 17-inch rear. Both wheels are spoked, but tubeless. The riding position has been optimized for both seated and standing positions and brush guards are standard. Stand up on the pegs and the vibration-reducing rubber insert will compress, allowing your boots to grip the spiked metal pegs. Side engine protectors and a sump guard are also standard and the rear subframe is reinforced to survive impacts even while the panniers are fitted and fully loaded. At 6.07 gallons, the oversized fuel tank should allow some serious distance between fill ups. A 12-volt power socket mounted in the is also standard, the seat adjusts between 33.3 and 34.3 inches in height and the screen is also adjustable.

        I've been thinking about long-haulers recently. I like.

        I wonder what the range is like with 23L...

          Maybe Yamaha upgrade the old TRX and put that engine into the new TRX 1200?

            Rather the 660 for chain final drive, although the rig looks good.

                That's a good word to describe it. But I'm thinking in a good way. Looks tough and I like those extra lights. It's not where I am in life atm, but for a one man epic tour - good looking choice

                    They obviously have their place but I've never liked this style of bike. I reckon they'd be bloody comfy though.

                      Thread resurrection!!

                      Have a customer with an xtz1200 and we have found it has 3% fuel contamination in the engine oil. Mainly used for long runs. Any thoughts??

                          The GS1200 Beemer it is a much more better bike. Then is the KTM1290 adventure, and then the rest Triumph, Yamaha, Honda africa, suzuki V storm). Read all the reviews, not even the Triumph XR can come close (too heavy, plus other stuff), and the honda africa not near them. I've been looking for a while to move to the adventure side, but the GS prices are stupid.

                            :-O africa twin is a great adventure bike.... power / price / reliability it will defiantly be my choice when im old enough, 1290 feels like a pile of poo compared to the honda

                              Anything over 200kgs sucks. The idea is dirt roads. Yes?
