2011_Yamaha_Super_Tenere.jpg

The 2011 Yamaha Super Tenere will use 3-mode ABS and linked brakes, switchable engine maps, drive-by-wire throttle, traction control, shaft drive, a 1200cc parallel-twin with a 270-degree crank and side-mounted radiators. This info, included in the official promo video below, indicates that the Super Tenere could leap frog the 2010 BMW R1200GS to compete directly with the wide range of capabilities offered by the 2010 Ducati Multistrada 1200. We've already seen skeletal versions of these mechanical components on the Super Tenere Concept, the crazy cloth-wrapped Jawa from the Tokyo Motor Show, but the above image could (emphasis on the could) be the first time we've gotten an idea what the production bike is going to look like. Allegedly, it shows a toy based on the future production bike.  >
