Huge savings on this like-new Super Ténéré

Sophistication is the name of the game with the Super Ténéré ES. Does the convenience of adjusting your suspension without ever getting off your bike sound interesting? With the simple push of a button, you can adjust both preload and damping settings, it is that simple. Add heated grips and a cruise control system to the mix and you have a machine that is truly worthy of being called the Ultimate Transcontinental Adventurer.

Chassis / Suspension
 High tensile steel, backbone-style frame. Engine is a stressed member. Steel pipe is used for its excellent strength - rigidity balance and more inherent softness than aluminum (comfort). The engine is mounted low in the frame and allows for a fuel tank design which lowers the centre of gravity for a lighter riding feel.  
 Detachable aluminum rear sub frame  
    Reduces weight  
    Sub frame designed to withstand the rigors and loads associated with adventure riding.  
 Long design, low pressure cast aluminum swingarm.  
    Casting method offers superior strength (material is more dense)  
    Long design contributes to excellent stability and rear wheel traction  
    Left side of swingarm "houses" drive shaft  
 Electronically adjustable 43 mm KYB inverted fork  
    190 mm (7.5 in.) of wheel travel  
    Adjustable damping  
 Electronically adjustable link Monocross rear suspension with KYB shock  
    190 mm (7.5 in.) of wheel travel  
    Adjustments include spring pre-load and damping  
 How it works: This "linked" electronic suspension asks the rider to choose from one of four pre-sets for "load" (solo / solo and luggage / dual / dual and luggage). Once the load setting has been chosen, the system automatically adjusts both the front and rear damping rates based on the load setting chosen. If a rider wishes to "tune" the damping settings further, there are 3 "main " settings (soft / std / hard) to choose from. Within each of these 3 main settings, there are another 7- "fine tuning" settings available, providing a total of 21 damping settings that a rider can choose from. The "load" setting must be chosen / adjusted while the unit is running but stopped. All other tuning can be done "on the fly". Adjustments are via buttons on the L.H.S. switch gear. Suspension setting menu and adjustments can be viewed in the DOT matrix section of the LCD multi-function meter assembly. A duty cycle motor controls the "pre-load" settings while stepping motors vary the oil flow rate in the fork and shock (damping adjustments). The design allows a rider easily tailor suspension settings to match load and road conditions. System is very similar to the one found on the FJR1300ES.  
 Suspension control unit (SCU) controls the electronic suspension and features a diagnostic mode  
 Tapered aluminum handlebar reduces weight and offers excellent strength. Handlebar position and bend is designed to be both versatile and comfortable whether sitting or standing.

    Master cylinder uses a 16 mm piston  
    Excellent braking performance and "feedback"  
 ABS equipped, "wave-style" 282 mm rear disc brake  
    Single piston, slide-type rear caliper  
    Rear master cylinder uses a 14 mm piston  
 The ABS or Anti-Lock Braking System features Yamaha's latest generation independent linear controlled system with step-less, infinitely variable hydraulic pressure adjustment. The ABS unit, the ECU and the hydraulic unit are combined into a single compact unit that allows for mass centralization. This system uses the same wheel sensors as the traction control system to reduce weight. When the system senses impending wheel lock-up, it regulates the hydraulic pressure to the point just before the wheel or wheels lock-up. The benefit of ABS is excellent control under hard braking or when braking on wet, slippery or loose surfaces. The ABS system is designed to help prevent wheel lock up.  
 Unified Brake System is combined with ABS system. When the front brake is activated, an electronic control applies some rear wheel braking force as well. The amount of rear braking force is dependent upon how hard the front brake has been applied, unit speed and the amount of load on the unit. If the rear brake is applied prior to the front brake, it cancels the unified braking system temporarily (there may be times on difficult terrain when a rider does not want the unified system to activate).  
 Large capacity, steel 23 litre fuel tank  
    Lower portion of the tank is located down inside the frame rails, behind the air box and cylinders to reduce centre of gravity and centralize mass
