2022 Yamaha Super Tenere ES: Dakar Done The Yamaha Way

Dakar has left a massive impression on the current motorcycle community. With Japanese OEMs selling record numbers of ADV bikes, it is of the utmost importance for the big three (Yamaha, Honda, Suzuki) to offer top-of-the-line ADV bikes without compromising any features. Yamaha has done this with their Super Tenere ES; a very capable adventure motorcycle that has been purpose-built for Dakar Rally and all things off-road.

With most modern MX bikes capping out at around the 500-600cc range, fully-fledged ADV motorcycles give riders the opportunity to bring large-displacement motorcycles out into the wild. Utilizing a 1,199cc parallel-twin engine, the 2022 Yamaha Tenere ES is more than equipped to handle any situation you could possibly get yourself into. 110 horsepower and 84 lb-ft of torque ensure that this bike can maximize every possible ounce of versatility both on and off-road.

With this being a true ADV motorcycle down the DNA, Yamaha has carefully included many important features that make off-road riding much easier. A center-based kickstand has been included to make off-road repairs much easier in addition to dual-zone ABS running through a unified braking switch (applying pressure to the front brake will also put force on the rear).

The ‘ES’ in the model name denotes electronic suspension. At the push of a button, you can fully adjust the entire suspension on this bike so you can adapt to any riding situation with ease. This feature alone makes the Tenere ES one of the most capable models in Yamaha’s 2022 model lineup. Don’t forget heated drops and an advanced cruise control system.

The 2022 Yamaha Super Tenere ES starts at $16,299 USD / $19,299 CAD

2022 Yamaha Super Tenere ES Features

TOP FEATURES

  • Compact & Powerful Engine
    With an exceptionally compact 1199cc parallel twin and a unique 270° crank for excellent torque and traction, the Super Ténéré ES is built for adventure. Engine mass is kept low for great handling. Narrow two-cylinder inline engine is slim and compact for carving tight lines in twisty mountain roads.
  • Electronic Suspension
    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 cargo amount and terrain.
  • All-Purpose Drivetrain
    Wide-ratio six-speed transmission has the right gear, whether on the open highway or off-road. The durable enclosed shaft drive is protected from the elements while providing a direct, responsive connection to the rear wheel.
  • Advanced Fuel Injection
    Twin downdraft throttle body fuel injection with YCC-T (Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle) delivers optimum throttle control and acceleration. Two-position “D-Mode” (Drive Mode) throttle response allows the rider to adjust mapping for conditions or preferences.
  • Traction Control
    Traction control lets the rider get on the gas with confidence. This very advanced system regulates ignition timing, fuel injection and throttle valve opening based on wheel spin, providing a smooth response that is not abrupt like the competitors. Three modes are available to match rider preference, including off.
  • Assured Braking
    The Super Ténéré ES has both an anti-lock braking system (ABS) and Unified Braking System (UBS). With UBS, squeezing the front brake lever also provides some rear-wheel braking while pressing the rear brake first overrides UBS for traditional separate front and rear braking action.
  • Convenience & Comfort
    Whether riding across town or crossing a continent, rider comfort and convenience are important. Super Ténéré ES delivers with its cruise control, adjustable seat height and windshield, tunable front and rear suspension, low-maintenance shaft drive, centerstand and more.

ENGINE

  • 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.
  • Adventure-Ready Motor
    The compact engine design uses a dry-sump oil supply inside the crankcase to boost ground clearance while a side-mounted radiator makes the Super Ténéré ES surprisingly narrow, protecting it from rocks and debris.
  • Advanced Fuel Injection
    The downdraft twin bore fuel injection system with 12-hole injectors is tuned for on- or off-road adventures and is equally made for at-home commuting as it is on long stretches of open highway.
  • Traction Control
    Proven YCC-T fly-by-wire technology allows for an advanced traction control system by regulating ignition timing and fuel injection volume and throttle valve opening based on rear wheel spin. Three rider-selected modes are available to match conditions and the rider’s preference.
  • Cruise Control
    The Super Ténéré ES includes a cruise control system powered by the YCC-T. The rider can easily select or adjust a set speed to ease long-distance touring on the highway.
  • D-Mode Throttle
    Yamaha’s D-Mode throttle offers two response settings: “T-mode” for Touring and general riding to give a softer response and “S-mode” for Sport riding for when the rider wants the most performance possible.
  • All-Purpose Drivetrain
    Wide-ratio six-speed transmission has gear ratios optimized for everything from slow dirt roads to higher speed sport riding. The durable enclosed shaft drive is protected from the elements while providing a direct, responsive connection to the rear wheel.

CHASSIS/SUSPENSION

  • Electronic Suspension
    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 perfectly dialed to meet the needs of the rider, passenger and cargo amount 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.
  • Assured Braking
    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, which is 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.
  • Customizable Comfort
    The Super Ténéré ES comes equipped with both adjustable windshield and seat height. One inch of seat height adjustment provides a lower height for shorter riders or a roomier riding position for taller riders in the high position while the windscreen can be easily adjusted 2.3 inches vertically without tools.
  • Adventure-Ready Ergonomics
    The grooved foot pegs show Yamaha’s attention to detail. While the rider is seated, rubber cushions provide excellent comfort. When the rider stands to tackle more technical riding conditions, the rubber compresses which lets the rider’s boots contact the metal foot peg surface.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

  • Luggage Ready
    The optional flexible luggage system design has three possible setups: standard with no top case or side bags, top case installed, or side cases installed. Included in the bike’s design, these accessories enhance the look of the Super Ténéré ES.
  • Beefy Controls
    Wraparound handlebar brush guards come standard and are attached to a tough rubber-mounted handlebar.
  • Standard Centerstand
    Both side stand and centerstand are provided for complete parking convenience.
