Yamaha Super Tenere

Yamaha Super Tenere just already launched and it seems to be the most considered by adventurer rider. It was a somehow fully formed motorcycle that was not really on show including in the recent 2009 Tokyo Motor Show. Well the mystique has been maintained, because no images have been released yet, but we now know a lot more about the bike’s fine details – the 1200cc parallel twin will have a 270 degree crank (for a v-twin feel), and will use Yamaha’s YCC-T ride-by-wire throttle, have switchable engine-mapping, traction control, and three-position anti-lock braking.
