To help protect headlights from rocks and other debris, the company’s quick-release headlight guard is said to offer security from an expensive, cracked headlight. The guard is built from laser cut stainless steel mesh and held in place with a steel connector fitted specifically to the Ténéré.
With its adjustable windscreen and GPS mount, Touratech has applied the same technology behind its Desierto fairings for the BMW GS bikes to the Yamaha. This windscreen adjustment bracket for the Super Ténéré offers multiple adjustments for height and angle for the stock Yamaha windscreen. The bracket includes a GPS mounting bar to locate a GPS over the motorcycle’s gauges.
For the Ténéré, Touratech has developed a model-specific tank bag with a number of features. These include expandability, waterproof zippers, triple-partitioned outer pocket with two-way zipper, organizer in the lid with document pocket, a removable credit card pocket, backpack function with included shoulder straps, large map pocket, and reflective trim. Made of water-resistant teflon-coated cordura.
The luggage rack from Touratech installs in place of the passenger seat, creating a platform for strapping down dry bags or other luggage. Adding a platform close to the rider makes it possible to keep the weight closer to the rider, thus balancing the bike better with a full load, the company reports. Pair this passenger seat rack with the company’s tail rack for a continuous flat surface to tie luggage down to.
Touratech’s crash bars for the Ténéré are made of electro-polished or black epoxy coated stainless steel. The bars are built to protect the Ténéré’s vulnerable tank and fairing pieces.
The engineers at Touratech have incorporated all the experience gained at countless rally races and enduros in the design of a tough skid plate for the Super Ténéré.
