After months of speculation and rumors that the United States might not get the newest version of Yamaha’s best-selling adventure bike, the company has announced that the 2014 Super Ténéré will be available stateside.
Yamaha is offering the 1,199cc parallel twin in two different trim levels, the Super Ténéré and the Super Ténéré ES. Notable improvements to the 2014 models include an updated multi-function display, traction contro,l and a redesigned windscreen that is now adjustable.
The most impressive improvement comes to the Super Ténéré ES however, which receives adjustable electronic suspension.
With the push of a button, one can toggle between 84 different suspension settings, which allow the rider to adjust preload, compression, and rebound.
Riders of the previous version will immediately notice that the handle bars are taller and have been pulled closer, allowing more control and better riding position.
There is a modest boost in power as the 2014 Super Ténéré gains an additional two horsepower and one and a half lbs•ft of torque. LED style turn signals have been added for 2014 and the ES version receives heated grips.
Yamaha USA says the Super Ténéré will be available as of April 2014 and will have an MSRP of $15,090 for the base model, and $16,190 for the ES version.
