Hallo guys, looking forward to picking up a thing or two and helping out when I can. I mostly exist only on Instagram as Kavika1991.
They feel absolutely different. Night and Day. You can’t even tell it’s the same engine.Welcome! Nice bikes you've got there.
I see that you have both the XSR700 and the Tenere 700 - do they feel very different power/engine character-wise? I suppose the ergo is very different...
The engine has some familiar characteristics, like the low down torque, but the XSR gives away a lot of weight so it's quicker to accelerate and weaves through traffic faster than the Tenere. I find the riding position of the Tenere more comfortable and it's certainly better for long trips in terms of wind protection and general comfort. It's a tall beast though and can be a bit unnerving compared to the XSR in slow manouevres! Obviously, it's better equipped for off road and has a bit more room for a pillion. The XSR and Tenere make a very nice combo in your bike garage!They feel absolutely different. Night and Day. You can’t even tell it’s the same engine.
