Yamaha confirm heady price for new GS rival
YAMAHA'S XT1200Z Super Tenere with ABS will cost £13,500 when it goes on sale in dealers in June, Visordown can reveal.
The cost of the all-new Yamaha may raise an eyebrow or two, compared to the £9,925 OTR retail price of BMW's iconic R1200GS, however, the asking price for the flat-twin GS doesn't include ABS (£945 extra) which is fitted as standard on the new Yamaha.
But the new Super Tenere isn't the most expensive adventure sports machine on the market right now: Ducati's 2010 Multistrada S, complete with ABS, traction control and electronic active suspension, retails at £14,295 OTR.
Wise pricing by Yamaha? Too expensive? Would you?

Way too much - I'd wait for a decent secondhand one in a years time.
I reckon that a good, used example will up for grabs at about £6000 in 12 months time......
You wanna lose some money? Buy a Super Tenere.

Quality is remembered long after price is forgotten....
From what I have seen of competitors machinery I'd choose the Yam.
'If you want to go in the outback - choose a Landrover'.
'If you want to go in the outback, and return choose a Toyota'
Let's see the tests first eh? Unless, of course, you want a lookalike....
