The new Super Tenere is the new R1 of the adventure world. Why? because alot of the tech from the sports bike has been transfered to it.
Most importantly the crossplane crankshaft. The R1s crossplane crank minimises inertial torque and allows to make the most of the available torgue.
So putting that engine in the Super Tenere, should allow the full use of the 110bhp and 84lb/ft whether on dirt, sand or road.
The new adv bike also has three modes of traction control. Unline the ABS this can be turned off.
This seems abit odd as Yamaha seem serious about it off road capabilities, giving it spoked 19-inch front wheel and a 17-inch rear.
It does look good tho
