Adventure Tested: 2014 Yamaha Super Tenere ES
Reading a review of the ST, came across this bit....
The SuperTen is more off-road capable than the new, $12,699 Suzuki V-Strom 1000, but that bike again has it beat in outright speed and handling and, at just 502lbs (wet) is considerably lighter and more agile than the Yamaha. The SuperTen will do better with a passenger and luggage, but not $3,500 better. If you're carrying passengers and luggage off-road regularly, we'd pay that premium. Otherwise, we'd opt for the slimmer, lighter, faster V-Strom.
