About the 2013 Yamaha Super Tenere

The Super Ténéré is built for adventure, with an exceptionally compact 1199cc parallel twin with a unique 270° crank for excellent torque and traction. Engine mass is kept low for excellent handling. Narrow 2-cylinder inline engine is slim and compact for carving tight lines in twisty mountain roads. Wide-ratio 6-speed transmission has the right gear, whether on the open highway or off-road. Twin downdraft fuel injection with YCC-T® (Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle) delivers optimum throttle control and acceleration.

Two-position “D-Mode” (Drive Mode) throttle-response mapping for rider preference. The 1199cc parallel twin liquid-cooled engine features a unique 270° crank for superior traction because both pistons fire so closely together. It’s almost like having a big-bore thumper without the uncomfortable vibration. 8-valve cylinder head optimizes the fuel charge for spirited performance. The cylinder head cover is ultra-lightweight magnesium to help centralize mass.
