I can tell you for sure that the MT-10 engine is really amazing... i truly love that bike and engine, it's a really sweet combo. When i switch to the super tenere from the MT-10,my first thought was "imagine if that thing had the MT-10 engine...!!"
You mean super shinny blue wheels, matt white with tons of metal flake tank, and some more shinny blue, some flat black mixed with glossy black panels, some more shinny blue stickers and gold forks is not everyone cup of tea? Shocked I say shocked.
I mean even if a particular color is not your thing like the sand, at least it made sense, and the bike actually.....matched.....Not looking like a sv650 some stunt biker has repainted 50 different times with whatever spray can he had sitting there.
Super tenere has been discontinued in Japan, and no news of future development. Now is selling old stock. My 2c and from Google, Yam will focus on <1000CC engine. T1200 is too big and for enduro you have Ten 700, for touring you have tracer 900 gt, plus we might see Tracer 1000 instead. If they were to develop a new model we might see a new engine 1300 cc and perhaps share the engine with FJR.
