Yamaha Super Ténéré – £9000
Yamaha’s Super Ténéré has genuine credentials, but it has many big beasts to compete with and is somehow consistently overlooked. Consequently dealers find it hard to shift new and used. Which means bargains. If you want a brand new 2018 Super Ténéré dealers are throwing in free hard panniers worth £840 as an incentive, however the real bargains are pre-registered bikes. A pre-reg ZE, with electronically adjustable suspension, can be bought for £1700 below list at £12,299. If you want the standard bike, you can save £1400 with a pre-reg at £10,799. And all this has a knock-on effect on used prices with 2016 Super Ténérés showing less than 10,000 miles going for less than £9000. The Ténéré is a really well built adventure bike with a very good spec list, strong parallel twin motor, good electronics and excellent comfort levels. If you’re planning a trip to Europe, with or without a pillion in 2019, this would be a great bike for the job.
