This is an personal concept study of a 900 Super Tenere Adventure by Nicolas Vontobel. It is based on his 2010 Super Tenere concept studies.
The upper side-covers are redesigned with a bigger air intake and it has now a larger 33 Litre fuel tank. The bike is stronger than the XT660Z and the F800GS but still capable for off-road sessions anywhere.

Stronger (powerful) than the 660 and more agile than the 1200s. This version has an additional air inlet in comparison to the normal XT900Z.
Note that this is his personal work and not an official concept by Yamaha.
