Also, if they go on to purchase the bike, they will be able to sharpen their riding skills at the Yamaha Tenere Experience in Wales, all with the compliments of Yamaha.
Over the past 7 years, Sanders has ridden around the world 4 times, on three occasions for over 30 000 miles. On the second of these adventures he led a group of 22 riders across 17 countries and 5 continents.
However, test ride participants will not be left empty-handed, as they will all receive a free copy of Nick Sanders’ ‘Anatomy of an Adventurer’ DVD and book in return for a completed evaluation form sharing their opinion after their ride.
The Yamaha Super Tenere adventure bike comes fitted with a fuel-injected, liquid-cooled 1199cc Parallel Twin engine, a three-way-adjustable traction control (Off, TCS1/standard and TCS-2), Yamaha Chip Controlled - Throttle (YCC-T) drive-by-wire throttle, two D-Mode power delivery settings, a Unified Braking System and an Anti-lock Braking System (ABS).
“Adventure travelling takes skill, courage and endurance – as well as faith in your machine. Faith that it'll love rocky river crossings and dirt roads as much as you do. Faith that it's going to be comfortable on a long freeway haul. Faith that it's got what it takes to carve up twisty mountain roads,” Yamaha says. “The Super Ténéré is built from the ground up to be the most exciting next-generation adventure tourer, combining Yamaha's Dakar-bred toughness and reliability with light, easy handling and advanced rider assist technology.”
