Yamaha Tenere

Last December I had a wish and my wish has come true.  This was my wish back then:

My wish for 2010 is that Yamaha brings the Super Tenere to the US.  I would be first in line to get one and I would begin a whole new type of my own adventures

Yamaha, at precisely 12PM EST today announced the availability of the bike in the USA starting at $13,900 early next year.  Enthusiast all over the world have been raving about the bike and the blogosphere is going crazy with the capabilities of the bike.  The starting price is well below what everyone was expecting and it's a good starting point for a bike that already has all the necessities for an adventure bike, just add bags and that's about it.  Deliveries starting early next year for the 2012 model.
I had a Yamaha XT250 when I was young and loved it, it was my first bike, I have lots of good memories of her.  Like a first girlfriend, you never forget her, it was my first love and since then I have always had an attraction for Yamaha bikes. I love the Yamaha R1 but I'm too old for it and now need something that will take me in new adventures.
WOW, that's all I can say, today is a good day. Thank you Yamaha

Available in "Impact Blue" or "Raven", I love the blue but a full black bike is very appealing too, oh, the dilemma.


  1. This is the second blog I've seen mention the Tenere. I've never heard of it before (though I don't know too many bikes anyway). I like the looks of this one, though I'm not ready to give up the ninja just yet. :)

  2. If you visit the ADVrider forum there's lots of people talking about it. The bike has been available in Europe and the rest of the world since January this year. I put a deposit on it yesterday ;-) Yamaha will start delivering in May 2011, I have a long wait :-( Too many nice riding roads on your neck of the woods, I will have to go cross country again with my new bike next year :-)
