The story: 2010 Yamaha Tenere 1200

Full and technical information have surfaced for Yamaha’s 2010 Super Tenere — and immediately clear that R1200GS now has a serious competitor in the adventure sports category. from its adventure credentials spoked rims, sit-down/stand-up ergonomics and the like, it’s packing some very technology — including a traction control module and a braking system that like it might put Honda’s ABS system to shame. Extensive images.

Yamaha has pulled the off its highly anticipated XT1200Z Tenere — a brand new for 2010 that harks to its Dakar-dominating adventure bikes of the 80s and

The Super Tenere looks it’s been aimed at BMW’s highly successful and R1200GS Adventure bikes, have seen a surge in in the last few years, both as adventure machines and as the motorcycling of an SUV, for better or worse.

The Tenere’s motor is completely a 1199cc parallel twin out 110PS at 7250rpm m of torque at It runs a 270-degree crank to inertial torque and give a direct torque feel at the — much like year’s R1 with its crossplane

The throttle is controlled by the same fly-by-wire system we’ve on the R1, R6 and VMAX in recent years but with the added bonus of a traction control system uses wheel speed from the front and rear ABS plus a range of other to work out when your wheel’s spinning, and intervene the ignition timing and fuel

There’s three levels TCS1, which intervenes as soon as the rear wheel spinning, TCS2 which is a more relaxed, and OFF for when jigger’s getting ridden it’s supposed to be.

Yamaha’s variable engine mapping up here too — although it seem to reduce the total rather giving you a Sport with snappier throttle and a Touring mode that’s a softer-edged for a more comfortable

ABS/Unified Brake System

The system on the Super Tenere very well thought ABS is a hugely effective safety on roadbikes — and a combined system certainly helps more controlled and comfortable — particularly if you’re up.

Yamaha has built an electronic brake system that wheel speed sensors and rear, as well as other to decide what’s happening at wheel under braking and then uses an infinitely hydraulic pressure unit to brake pressure if it looks a wheel is about to lose Apparently this is supposed to in even before a slide and avoid the juddering common to ABS systems. I guess we’ll and see.

Since the rear hard to get to when you’re up, the electronic/hydraulic system is also set up to braking between the front and calipers in a controlled fashion. But if you hit the brake pedal first, function is cancelled for that instance — so if you’re the of rider that likes to the braking proportions in this you can have full control.

Not sure if this control to letting you lock the rear up when you want to off-road, but a clever step in the right

Like the Beemer, the Super is a heavy bike, coming in at wet with a full fuel (that’s about 5kg more the R1200GS Adventure). But Yamaha has to great pains to point out the mass has been kept low and throughout the design process to such a big bike handle the range of conditions it’s for.

The frame is steel than aluminium — a opportunity to reduce some of weight, perhaps, but then is tougher in high-shock situations, so it the Super Ten a better bike to lay on its

Spoked rims are a must for riding — they a beating better than rims, and are more fixable if deform. The Super Tenere’s got a 19 on the front and a 17 on the rear.

Ground clearance of 205mm out the GS’s 185mm — but is less than the 241mm of the GS To help balance out the competing of low, central mass and ground clearance, Yamaha has a dry sump for the engine, but then an oil tank into the crankcase.

on the left, regulator and other are on the right side of the bike, small fairings. Moving the up let designers tilt the engine forward to help keep the low, without having to the wheelbase.

Suspension is fully front and rear — the benefit of hand-adjustable rear to make it easier to set the bike up for or pillions.

Naturally there’s a range of factory accessories from the get-go — and some of them will be for 2010 only. First-year get a set of aluminium side panniers, a plate and a headlight protector as standard.

The Super Tenere goes on early March — prices are yet to be announced. Advance will be taken through a starting within a few weeks.

looks like a strong for BMW — it’s more oriented than the Multistrada, or V-Strom and Yamaha is clearly to capitalise on the recent woes BMW are to have been suffering in the stakes. If it handles as well as the and does as good a job across a of surfaces, it’ll be a beauty and it’s likely to be price-competitive. We forward to taking one out!
