Features

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.

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 6-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.

Other 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.

Top Features

  • COMPACT AND 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 2-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 6-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 AND 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.
