While it hasn't been officially discontinued, I'll bet money that there won't be a 2021 Super Tenere.
We do this EVERY YEAR, same as the FJR and some others. According to people like you, this model was to have been discontinued EVERY year since 2012 and a person I know with Yam N.A. wasn't too subtle about the model continuing.

Sooner or later you'll be right, but on the other hand the FJR is still going after 19 years.

First of all, FJR has been officially cancelled for 2021.

There's some logic behind my statement for 2021 S10's. All bikes sold in the EU for 2021 have to be Euro5 compliant, Super Tenere, FJR too for that matter, are not Euro5.

Don't think there's any argument that the S10 has not been a strong seller. So therefore no push on Yamaha to redesign it to meet Euro5, especially when it can sell a bajillion T7's that share a platform with a 100 other models they sell. So do they keep it around for select markets where it barely sells already?

Easy excuse for Yamaha to cull their model line, same applies to all other manufacturers.

I had heard that rumor and asked the factory rep at Daytona. He said that as far as he knew there would be a 2021 model. -JEP-

logically makes sense to keep 1200 model in the lineup to compete with big bore ADV bikes of the world.

I'm not saying that it's not gone for good, but the FJ was gone for few years before it return as the FJR; faster, stronger, better. Do we know that the T12 and FJR can't be made compliant? Easily. . . . inexpensively? IIRC, the early VMax had a similar problem, year to year, with EPA requirements. Yamaha just kept increasing the V-Boost, and carried on. Maybe Volkswagen will show them how to pass. :rolleyes:
