Yamaha XT 660 Z Ténéré 2014

Just by evoking the name of Ténéré, many bikers suddenly see large sand dunes, walks between stones, the scent of adventure. Over 20 years ago, this name was closely linked to Paris-Dakar. Because the XT range, Yamaha, and rally raids, it’s a long love story. In the civilian sector, it was the XTZ 660 Ténéré which was responsible for maintaining the dream until the end of the 90s, although its services played more in the road sector. And then, the market changed, the trails were ousted, the mono no longer had the coast.

10 years later, the market still gives pride of place to roadsters and machines with character. What a surprise then to discover that Yamaha has decided to revive the 660 Ténéré. How will the market follow? He prefers big trails, with a strong GT tendency. But image question, it slams! An adventurer like that, we don’t see much of it. And yet, it can take you far, disorient you in a setting very different from our formatted environment. Direction the track, without the vibrators but with gravel and dust.

The builder has a habit of polishing his creations. And this XTZ appears very convincing as representing the rally-raid spirit. All-road tires mounted on spoke rims, long-travel suspensions, fork tubes protected by bellows (as in the good times), substantial seat height, fork crown "big mouth" with double optics, fairing and trekking look – Everything is there to cut the croupier. All that remains is to add some accessories such as suitcases, aluminum engine guard or hand guards to complete the outfit..

If the appearance evokes southern spaces, the XTZ will certainly have more access to the comfort aspect, as the philosophy of the Ténéré wants it, than on the enduro or the TT. Its large 22 L tank and its weight of 183 kg keep it somewhat away from the forest path; the roads of Corsica seem more indicated.
Compared to the XT from which it derives, the Z gains an additional brake disc, a new more complete dashboard, specific plastic frame, engine and tank covers..
But from near and far, it’s hard to imagine that it is an XT which serves as a basis, as the machine seems so different. Launching a machine of this kind given the current market, the bet is daring … But whatever. The XTZ 660 Ténéré above all embodies a spirit, a smell of hot sand, allows you to escape, no matter whether in Paris, Tunis, Timbuktu or St-Pourçain-sur-Sioule.
