Before you buy a 2016 Yamaha Super Ténéré Motor-Cycle in Uganda

by Edwin

Launched in 2010, the Super Ténéré and its stablemate, the Super Ténéré ES return for 2017 with all the adventure goodness that gave the Ténéré its name. Named after the Ténéré desert region in the Sahara, the Super Ténéré and Super Ténéré ES from Yamaha give you on-road and off-road confidence wherever your journey takes you. The compact 1,199 cc parallel-twin engine coupled with the wide-ratio six-speed transmission carries you over hill and dale and back to the pavement with aplomb. The narrow chassis and low center of gravity make the Super Ténéré easy to handle as well as maneuverable and nimble on twisty roads.

Buying a foreign used 2016 Yamaha Super Ténéré Motor-Cycle from Uganda

There are a number of places in Uganda specifically Kampala from which you can buy your 2016 Yamaha Super Ténéré. However, you have to do good research in order to find a reputable car bond or dealer who will be able to provide you with the car that will meet your needs and above all genuinely imported into Uganda.

You need to look out for prices and discounts. Local car bonds may not charge the same prices for the same car. Prices of the 2016 Yamaha Super Ténéré may be affected by mileage of the Super Ténéré, condition of the Super Ténéré, model, and year of manufacture.

Depending on your dealer and other factors mentioned above, the 2016 Yamaha Super Ténéré may cost around 25,000,000/- to 35,000,000/- or even more.

It is also important to take some time and do some research about the Super Ténéré you want to buy. You could find good Super Ténérés at good prices if you do take some time in researching about them and make all necessary consultations. I don’t recommend rushing especially if it’s your first time to buy one.

Importing a foreign Used 2016 Yamaha Super Ténéré Motor-Cycle from Japan or other parts of the world

In case if you prefer to import your own 2016 Yamaha Super Ténéré from say Japan or from Europe, things change a bit. First it would require you to find a trusted dealer or seller in that regard, determine your specific bike features and requirements, expected budget you plan to spend on buying the Super bike and well calculated taxes to be paid to the tax authorities in order to clear 2016 Yamaha Super Ténéré here in Uganda.

The taxes charged by the Uganda Revenue Authority include Import Duty, Value added (VAT), Withholding Tax, Environmental Levy, Infrastructure Levy, and Registration Fees basing on the CIF of the 2016 Yamaha Super Ténéré from Japan.

On arrival to Kampala, Uganda, you will have to clear the taxes at The Uganda Revenue Authority (URA), apply and pay for a number plate and then the third party license. You will also notice the some of these charges or fees differ from other vehicles.

General 2016 Yamaha Super Ténéré Motor-Cycle reviews for Uganda

Looking at the design, right off the bat, we like that the Super Ténéré has a bullet cowl instead of the bird’s-beak-looking fairing that we see on other adventure bikes. It has that upright riding posture that makes long trips in the saddle more comfortable — maybe not as comfortable as the rolling easy-chair ride of a Goldwing or Electra Glide, but definitely more comfortable than the back-slouch of a cruiser or the forward hunch of a sport bike.

Even though the Super Ténéré is off-road capable as far as adventure bikes go, keep in mind that this isn’t meant for hard-core off-roading. Compared to what we consider a "dual sport" bike, adventure bikes are big and heavy — think of it more as a dual-sport tourer.

The Super Ténéré comes with off-roadish features such as a skid plate, handlebar brush guards, and the adventure-bike suspension that gives you a bit more wheel travel than a street-only bike. I like the grooved foot pegs that, when seated, give you a cushy peg underfoot. When you get into more technical riding and you stand up, the cushioning compresses under your weight and gives you more sure footing on the underlying metal pegs.

The drivetrain: You ain’t got a thing if you ain’t got that swing (doo-wop doo-wop...) and Yamaha really put some power in this ride. The 1,199 cc, water-cooled, inline twin uses a 46 mm, Mikuni throttle body and a downdraft intake to produce 86 pound-feet of torque at 6 grand, plenty for on- or off-road work. Uneven power pulses from the 270-degree crank arrangement gives the rear tire plenty of time to get a grip between pulses, like a tractor, for enhanced soft-surface performance. Unlike a tractor, the lightweight pistons and low reciprocating mass keeps vibrations reasonably low.

Yamaha’s own ride-by-wire system provides a number of useful features. The Yamaha Chip Control (YCC-T) controls the throttle by smoothing out the discrepancies between response and demand, and adjusts according to throttle-grip position 1000 times per second. The system enables the use of the Yamaha driver mode (D-Mode) that comes with two, preset power-delivery curves for smooth or snappy power.

Alternatives or Competitors to the 2016 Yamaha Super Ténéré Motor-Cycle available in Uganda

With no shortage of Japanese dual-sports to choose from, I decided to see how a Euro would stack up against the Super Ténéré, and BMW seemed a likely choice with its R 1200, says, “Sharp-looking dual sport (DS) Yamaha! Like my bride, I like the front fairing and fender arrangement, and the ammo-can accessory saddlebags (are they still “bags” if they are rigid?). The DS arms race is heating up, and more of them are coming out with the top-end features like ABS, RbW and traction control. I think this is more than the usual one-upmanship between manufacturers, but a reaction to an increasingly discerning, adventure bike customer base, a condition that bodes well for the DS industry as a whole.”

Our Conclusion

Rounding out some of the more notable features, the Super Ténéré comes with cruise control and dual cat-eye projector headlights. Those projector headlights that I’m seeing more and more frequently really throw some light for extra confidence during nighttime rides. There you go…and all the best with your new super-bike.
