I have been reading a lot about it on advrider.com in the Beasts subforum.

It is good enough that people are selling their 1200GS to buy the Super Tenere...

Others say it is still too big and heavy which is a liability in the dirt.
Then again, it is an asset when riding long hauls on the street as well.

I view big 1000+ cc bikes like the Super Tenere and the 1200GS as SUVs. Very big and comfy on the highway, put knobbie tires on them and they are also very capable of going off road. Not the best road bike, not the best dirt bike, but one of the best to do both in the same day.
