2010 Yamaha XT660Z Ténéré

If you going up north or planning a long stretch riding holiday, I can't think of any better bike than this.

It's tag for RM71k on the road, with another RM 2,000.00 for the side panniers. Not a great deal if you kept BMW F800GS or Kawasaki KLR650 on the same list. But I would say it'll be a better bargain comparing what this bike a design for. It would just do as what the GS would.

I like those alum finish side and top box. It's would look more authentic and classic when it aged with bumps, scratch and mud all over it.

You can pack 23 liter of fuel in here.

Single Cylinder, SOHC, 4 Stroke, 660cc producing almost 48bhp @ 6,000rpm. Requires 3 bottles of Motul 1L oil for next service with some spare for the lubing the chain.

This reminds me so much of Mospeada.

Brembo's caliper for front and rear. I didn't notice it uses the same brand for the pumps.
