2020 Yamaha Super Tenere ES
There is a saying that racing is the testbed for road vehicles, and the 2020 Yamaha Super Tenere ES stands as proof of that. Using a race-derived 1,119cc, DOHC, fuel-injected parallel-twin that raced in many Dakar Rally races throughout the past two decades, the Super Tenere produces 110 crank HP and 84 lbs-ft of torque, much of it accessible across the entire mid-RPM range. This places it perfectly in the position for both road-cruising as well as attacking a sand dune or dirt mound.
The Super Tenere ES comes standard with both a side kickstand and a center body stand for quick repairs in the middle of nowhere, as well as variable mode traction control, dual-zone ABS with an option to set unified braking (the front brake lever will also activate the rear brake at an electronically controlled rate), and throttle-by-wire using Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle (YCC-T).
As well, a range of suspension and engine modes are electronically controllable, most notably the fully adjustable Electronic Suspension (ES) that even includes a diagnostic mode should anything fail, allowing the bike to run in “limp home” mode.
