Yamaha Super Ténéré XT1200Z to cost £13,500

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?

Yamaha XT1200Z rivals:

BMW F800GS £7,350 (ABS £620 extra)
BMW R1200GS £9,925 (ABS £945 extra)
BMW R1200GS Adventure £10,745 (ABS £945 extra)
Ducati Multistrada £10,995
Ducati Multistrada S £14,295 (ABS, t/control, active suspension)
