New Bike Yamaha XTZ 250 TENERE !!!
 
Hi guys,

I don´t know if it really exists, but I saw this magazine yesterday in Brazil, looks good:

Yamaha XTZ 250 TENERE

Yamaha Ténéré 250

Have a look!

I'm not convinced, would you put twin front discs that size on a 250? Considering my XT600 Ténéré only has one.

Warthog 17 Aug 2010 19:02

I don't speak Portuguese but the article heading for the photo of the bike appears to read photo-montage, suggesting it's a mock up to show what such a bike might look like, if it was ever considered, designed and built, using this magazine as inspiration.

Needless to say, I don't think it's real. :frown:

Which is a shame because I think, for the solo rider, a 250 with that frame, tank size and seat would make a great overlander!!

In the picture it's the 1200 and 660 that have two discs, the 250 appears to have one.

Why wouldn't they make it? Anything to get a few more sales surely?

XTZ 250 Lander in Brazil
 
Hi guys,

they also have a XTZ 250 Lander in Brazil, which is really good bike. I think it is even fuel injected(not sure).

It is used for Enduro Recing too, I saw some really amazing Desert Racing Versions in Brazil, strong bikes!

We don´t have the Lander in Germany... stupid people only want big bikes...

I think it is like travelling on the old DR 350 Suzukis, it is really a shame that they don´t build bikes like this anymore... okay there is still the brand new Beta 4.0 Alp out there with the DR 350 Engine, but do you get parts on the road???

Could not agree more ! I have a 250 serow but something with a better tank range geared up for adventure travel would be a great idea - bring it on Yamaha and import it to Europe !

It's a photoshop job - frame and bits are off the 660.

Hi Chizz,

100% a photomontage, more like a MCN idea of a future bike than anything else. You can see it's a direct copy of the 660 image, with bits tweeked.

As far as I'm aware, none of the bikes from Yamaha Brazil are officially brought into the UK, so I was lucky to get Team Cabra.

Now if Derbi can offer their 125cc Adventure bike then, apart from cost, and a limited market, then what's to stop Yamaha from doing the same?

Regards

Reggie

Hey Guys... This is my first post in this forum. You're all right. This is a Photoshop job. It's not a real bike and I suppose it will not be on the streets in the next few months.

I'm from Brazil, and yes, we do have a 250cc trail motorcycle both from yamaha and Honda (major manufacturers here in Brazil).

Yamaha's bike is named Lander and it is fuel injected. Honda's bike goes by the name Tornado. Tornado is not on production anymore. Honda now has a 300cc named XRE300. I own a Tornado and it's a nice bike for daily urban users.

Many guys I know use the Tornados for their off-road job. It's a nice bike, but I prefer Lander better... For urban use, the fuel injection is a more apropriate solution.

I live in Sao Paulo, our streets feels a lot like off-road, because of bad quality pavement (asphalt mostly). So, both bikes are great for this city.

Hope to get back here often to trade some ideas with you guys!

Yamaha XTZ 250 TÉNÉRÉ - BRAZIL
 
It´s not fake, it´s true!
XTZ 250 Ténéré was launched today in Brazil, the engine is the same XTZ 250 Lander.

The problem is the price: R$12.900,00 = US$7.600,00. :helpsmilie:

Best wishes,

It looks interesting, but it looks more like a style-pack than a new bike.

I google-translated the yamaha sites of both, the Lander and the Tenere and they are basically the same bikes. Same breaks, same suspension, same swing (doesn't it look a little weak?), same engine, same frame, same exhaust...

I'm not saying that's a bad thing, but how much is the lander? Cause if it's a lot less it might be worth just throwing a bigger tank+frontligh section and the seat on yourself.


And also with 7,6kUS it's not far to the 660 Tenere.

But if a lot of people buy them now I'd be happy so I can pick one up cheap when I get to South America.

Yes, you are right it´s the same engine, frame, etc..
Only some changes like: seat, tank, etc.

The XTZ 250 Lander costs: R$11.735,00 = US$6.910,00.
Many things have high prices in Brazil because of our high taxes.

All the best,
Reginaldo.

Deep down, I'm hoping this thing uses the same fuel pump as the US/Euro/Aussie WR250R. Take a lot of worries out of far away touring... A fuel injected XT250 would be really nice, even here in the states. Sharp looking bike.
