This tasty dual purpose bike was especially created for those who search a versatile motorcycle that is able to deal effortless with both the highways and the dirty tracks.

The secret behind the Yamaha XT66Z Tenere’s abilities is a powerful liquidcooled, 4-valve, 4-stroke SOHC single-cylinder engine that produces a maximum power of 35.0 kW (48.0PS) at 6,000 rpm and 58.0 Nm (5.92 kg-m) of torque at 5,500 rpm. The engine is fed by a pretty generous 23-litre fuel tank which offers a decent range, so you won’t need to stop for refueling more than usual.
