2018 Yamaha Super Tenere ES, MSRP $16,199
2018 Yamaha Super Ténéré ES
The Super Ténéré® ES brings adventure on every ride with a powerful 1199cc parallel twin, wide-ratio 6-speed transmission and pushbutton electronically adjusted suspension.
Features may include:
Crossplane Crankshaft Engine
The 1199cc parallel twin, liquid-cooled engine features a unique 270° crossplane crankshaft for superior traction. It’s almost like having a big-bore thumper without the uncomfortable vibration.
Compact engine design uses a dry-sump oil supply inside the crankcase, boosting ground clearance, while a side-mounted radiator makes the Super Ténéré ES surprising narrow and protects the radiator from rocks and debris.
Advanced Fuel Injection
Downdraft twin bore fuel injection system with 12-hole injectors is tuned for on- or off-road adventures, and is equally at home commuting as it is on long stretches of open highway.
Electronically adjusted suspension makes finding the right setting as easy as pushing a button. With four pre-load settings, three damping presets and an additional seven fine-tuning damping adjustments, the Super Ténéré ES suspension can be dialed perfectly to meet the needs of the rider, passenger and the amount of cargo and terrain.
Robust Steel Chassis
The steel frame is designed to reduce rider fatigue during long rides. Using a steel main frame offers the best balance of strength and flexibility so it can help absorb jolts from uneven road surfaces.
The ABS and Unified Brake System (UBS) work together to help prevent wheel lock during braking. This system allows the rider to operate front and rear brakes together by simply pulling the front brake lever, especially helpful when riding while standing on the pegs. Applying the rear brake first overrides UBS to provide traditional separate front and rear brake control.
The optional flexible luggage system design has three possible setups: standard with no top case/side bags, top case installed, or side cases installed. These accessories were included during the design of the motorcycle so as to enhance the look of the bike.
Wraparound handlebar brush guards are standard equipment, mounted to a tough rubber-mounted handlebar.
Both side stand and center stand are provided for complete parking convenience.
