Wet weight 261 kg

 

advriders have some discussion regarding about weight.

 

Rumoured that the price starts at € 17.000,- including taxes in The Netherlands.

 

@ Sniff... I think you are making a little mistake in your calculation.

 

A regular GS1200 comes with a dry-weight of 220 kg. Including fuel, oil, battery, cooling liquid, shaft ride oil, etc the scale says its 256 kg at the end. So... only 5 kg less than the Teneré.

 

But; the Teneré comes with all the specs for which you have to pull your purse at the BMW agent. Looking at the specs, you have to compare the Teneré with the GS Adventure. The Adventure's weight is + 30 KG towards a regular GS adding up to almost 290 kg!!!

 

These figures are proven by several motorcycle magazines - except the German ones...

 

That's even heavier as the XL1000V Varadero ABS (283 kg) despite the fact that BMW claims that the GS is putting 229 (ready to ride) on the scale... This is a proven heist.

 

@ Sniff... I do agree with you however that the Japs have to do some catching up on this piece of the market. The naked truth is however that the EU / VS market is not interesting for the Japs - heavy bikes are only a small percentage of their World Wide sales which floats on 125/250 cc moped scooters in Asia. The cherry on the pie, no more, no less. Which have made them lazy on some aspects and big trail bikes are one of these... Unfortunately.

 

The European manufactures don't build mopeds, so the speed on which new models are designed are more up to the customers demand than Japanese manufactures do.

 

Which is a pity, because the Japs had their share of proper traillies in the past: the 'old' 750 Super Teneré, the Suzuki DR800 and the good old Honda XRV750 Africa Twin... But it seems that Japan doesn't care about their legacy and heritage...

It's important that HL (if they decide to bring in) price this bike competitively so as attract potential GS customers.

 

this bike out of reach for me..from the ground...:sian:..if it is the same height as the present 600

 

Hehe.... wear high heels?

i doubt HL will bring in...the local market for the Yamaha department are mainly focus on sports tourer FJRs,FZ1 and ever popular R1s....

 

the XT660Z was not a totally a disappointment...it's a great bike...and i believed would be as reliable as it can be....

 

the only set back is the pricetag...same goes with the new 1200tenere parallel twin engine...

Er, think Botzz was referring to the disappointment for HL not bringing in the Ten.

 

With the yen on the unfavourable side and being such a convenient 'excuse' for ripping bikers off, I am sure this Ten12 will probably surpass the 30G mark...10G more and you get a german under your crotch? Mite not be a bad bet...LOL

 

Tempting but not much pull factor for me.

sometimes...we have to leave all the speculations behind....

 

 

Until you get to ride and own it,then you will have all the answers.....initially,different bike,suits different riders....

 

Some love to follow the masses and with those typical BMW GS as the "dream bike".....some just love to be different and prefers not to be in the crowd of the masses....

 

The main concern,a new bike is born....the competition is just war of words between riders itself....

thx bro Trailblazer for heading to the right direction..

 

I agree with AJ, XT660Z is not the dissapointment.. I was referring to HL as being the dissapointment factor. Simply by saying there's no market for this type of bike in Singapore is just not the right excuse for a consumer like me but itis right for their business sense.

 

I was looking forward for HL to bring in the XT660Z when it was 1st launched. But i was dissapointed.

 

2 years on, heard Loois brought it in with exorbitant selling price for a single engine bike. I was disspointed again. And I think I am not the only one here.

 

I hope I won't be 3rd time lucky..

 

If HL been looking at GS's sale figures, I think that the Ten12 can give the GSs some hard competition being that it's Japanese. Provided, HL is willing to bring the bike in. IF we get shops to parallel import it in, we will get prices as the Ten660.

 

 

I hope the price range for the Ten12 with panniers will be ard the FJR sale value.

 

The problem with the 'Germans' here is that the selling price of it is too high. Especially when a brand new GS ADV cost less than a brand new R1 in UK. Parts and agent service (labour) prices are also ridiculously priced. Mebbe i am just an ordinary man.

 

 

I agree with AJ as well on his last post.. I do love something different.. something new.. but of course price must be right as well..

I think,on your quote...

Many of us,share this same sentiments....:(

 

but looking at the bright side of things,we can still able to wait for a 2nd hand tenere...definately it's more affordable...it's just a matter of time....even though it's 2nd hand,we can expect an everlasting motor of a Japanese bikes...even after it's over 10yrs of age...

Like the XR650R,when it was 1st launch,in Singapore,I was so ever wanted to get hold of it...but looking at that time,i can't afford to buy it even though the price of a brand new ones was just $14k otr.

But the love of having to own it one day,really becomes a reality even though it's a 2nd hand bike that already served 4yrs of trashing with milege over 60k when i got it...

And it's worth every single bit...now,3yrs after owning the bike,really utilised it like how it's meant to be,the bike gives me smiles every single time i am riding it...even though milege already hit 100k km...

 

So my take on both tenere,as long as it hit our shore,as long as you have the passion for it,it will still be within your means to own it someday...:thumb:

well let's just cross our fingers and wait for the bike to reach our shores.. hopefully as a HL bike.

 

another thing i like about this bike is the side mounted radiator. That's one less worry for those who will be riding the bike onroad and moreso, offroad. No trailing stones from the front wheel to hit the radiator. As long as u don't drop on a huge rock towards the left side, radiator should be safe.

 

Notice also that from the front,left side on the headlights, there's an air intake hole cut bigger than the right. Probably to aide cooling of the radiator.

 

The aluminium bash guard is also nicely made. Mainstand hopefully come as standard.

eh..i am been looking at the pictures again and again. Where is the exhaust end can? i see the two exhaust header but not the end can

 

Single exhaust. It's on the left side of the bike. Partially hidden by the side panniers.
