Here is the comparison chart between the three models the XT660X, the XT660R and the XT660Z Tènèrè. While all 3 bikes have the same engine plant and the X & R also share the same chassis, these are three completely different bikes each filling a specific purpose, the X is a robust Super Motard that will eat corners like no other bike, and will dominate both urban area and country lanes, leaving behind more powerful bikes which would struggle at handling tight hairpin bends like the x can do. Whereas the R is a mighty enduro which is good both in the city as well as rooted, dusty roads, and will handle the rough with the smooth with the same precision and elegance. Finally the Z joined the X and the in 2008 to give fans of the previous 1990's Tènèrè and Super Tènèrè the rebirth of a legendary bikes which has perfectly live to its famous name and expectation, this bike is the king of the adventure bikes, powerful and nimble and at the same time a work horse that can really take any terrain, and since 2008 has been the most popular of the three models, 2010 also sees the introduction of a very efficient ABS brakes system and this has pushed the bike into even more competitive races and adventure world wide. In facts quite a few of our hard core members have taken the bike virtually around the world and back managed to return it home in one piece despite numerous oil, and tyres, chainsets and other consumable changes in the time it took them to complete their Round the World expeditions, all these rides have been featured on our previous website and you can find some of them on the following links: The Fragile Xpedition and The Southern Crossing.
