    MT-07 Tenere to be launched

    This is the news I have been waiting for.

    I really liked the concept of the old Super Tenere, the XTZ750 that competed with the original Africa Twin.

    Adventure bikes are always going to be a compromise and we'll never all agree on the perfect one (how dull would that be) but for my 'adventures' I like a bike that can munch the motorway miles but still be reasonably good off-road at my destination. It needs a 21" front wheel and it needs to weigh less than a bus.

    So when I read the first reports about the zippy, torquey, characterful and fuel efficient engine in the MT-07 I was just hoping that one day they'd decide to Terenify it. Seems it's going to happen in the next year or two.

    Here's the article: http://www.motorcyclenews.com/news/n...-07-tnr-spied/

    As a gauge, I rode the MT-07 today.

    Negatives - the diamond shaped mirrors are awful and the switches feel very low budget.

    Positives - the engine hauls beautifully, I had to back off very quickly before crashing through three figures and once I backed off, it cruised at about 5,000 revs (red line at about 8,500) before even hitting 6th which felt very relaxed.

    Good engine for an adventure bike? Oh yes..

    No, I don't.

    R100GS, R1100GS, R1100GS, R80G/S, R1150GS, R100GS PD in that order. Never ridden a GS newer than my 1150, are the switches poor?

    Absolute cheap chinese shite!
    Just about every 1200GS LC has had one or both replaced (with another absolute cheap chinese shite switch)
