Fully Loaded 2010 Reg Yamaha Tenere For Sale in Feb in S.Africa (UK registered bike)

I am currently riding my brand new Yamaha XT660Z Tenere down to Cape Town in South Africa. I am looking to sell the bike in South Africa to avoid the hassle of shipping it back to the UK.

I would need to sell to another European, preferably a UK resident, as I am not intending to import the bike into South Africa. This would be ideal for anyone wanting to fly down to Cape Town, and then ride the bike back to Europe.

I am not sure of the paperwork, but have heard that it should not bee too much hassle to get the bike transferred from my Carnet to another Carnet, so the new owner could then ride back to Europe.

The bike is fully loaded, and comes with a full Yamaha hard luggage system and all the extras that you can think of. Everything you need to cross Africa, and more. Will also have plenty of spares and tools if you are interested. To name a few extras:

- Genuine Yamaha top box & panniers, - Yamaha centre stand, - Yamaha sump shield, - Yamaha hand guards with wind deflectors, - Touratech headlight protector - Touratech rear mudguard - Touratech front spot lights - Scottoiller auto chain lube system - Gel seat for added comfort - Heated grips - 12V Socket

Please e.mail me at: robbie.andersen@gmail.com or send me an SMS to +44 7801 946 017 for any questions. As I am on the road at the moment, I may not reply for a couple of days or maybe even a week, so if u need an instant reply, then it's best to send an SMS.

Looking for 6000 GBP for the bike including everything.

I'm interested in your bike .. but in reality I can buy a brand newie ('10 model) at most English dealers, fully kitted, for about what you're asking.

I'd be interested around the 4k mark - since chain, brakes, sprockets, tyres, filters, etc will need to be done on your bike. PM if you're interested.

Tenere for sale


Thanks for the reply. Will loose Internet for a week or more in a couple of hours, so it's best if u send me SMS messages during the next week.

Have all the spares with me. Chain, Cush rubbers, tires, brake pads .... And doesn't look like I will be using any of them before SA, so u shouldn't have to replace anything on the bike. Just get on and ride. ;-)

Am riding with an older tenere, transalp, and BMW f650, and getting way better fuel consumption than all of them. Bike has really impressed me so far. Might not want to sell at the end. ;-)

Would cost me 450 pounds to ship her back, so am prepared to let her go for

Let me know what you think,



P.S. Where abouts in the uk are you? Could send my V5 to my mom, and then you guys could meet up to sort it out.

Yamaha XT 660 Z Tenere for Sale (2010 Reg)


Have a litte more time now, and found a decent internet connection. The bike will also come with the following as a spare part or installed as new:

- Chain and sprockets
- K&N air filter (million mile)
- K&N oil filter
- PUIG taller and bigger windscreen
- Michelin Sirac Tires
- Cush rubbers
- Brake pads
- Accelerator and brake cables

and many other random small spares. The bike has well over 2500 GBP of extras fitted onto her. The bike will be serviced and all parts replaced that need replacing, or else I will give you the spare part to replace later on when it needs it. As you can see, I have only put top quality components into this bike, and not spared any cash when it came to parts.

I have 2 South Africans who are wanting to buy the bike, but that would mean that I would need to officially import it into SA, and I really can't be bothered with all the paper work.

So, if anyone wants an amazing bike, in top notch condition to ride from SA to the UK, then just let me know...
