The 2012 Yamaha Super Tenere

This is the bike that makes the biker spellbound, 2012 Yamaha Super Tenere, and began its maiden voyage in America held in Sedona, AZ.
Twin downdraft fuel injection with YCC-TTM (Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle) delivers optimum throttle control and acceleration. 2-position “D-Mode” (Drive Mode) throttle-response mapping for rider preference. It regulates ignition timing and fuel injection based on wheel spin. Three modes available to match rider preference, including off.

Super Ténéré has both an Antilock Braking System (ABS) and Unified Braking System. With the Unified Braking System, squeezing the front brake alone also provides some rear-wheel braking; pressing the rear brake first overrides the Unififed Braking System for traditional separate front and rear braking action.

Super Ténéré delivers, with an adjustable seat height and windshield, tunable front and rear suspension, low-maintenance shaft drive, and more. Three rider-selected modes are available to match conditions and the rider’s preference. Wide-ratio 6-speed transmission has gear ratios optimized for everything from slow dirt roads to higher speed sport riding. The all-new steel frame is designed to reduce rider fatigue during long rides. Applying the rear brake first overrides the Unified Braking System to provide traditional separate front and rear brake control. While the rider is seated, rubber cushions provide excellent comfort. Genuine Yamaha top case and side cases designed for adventure touring are available as accessories. Available in two colors Impact blue and Raven.
