Yamaha has taken the covers off the all new Ténéré 700 at an exclusive pre-EICMA event held at Milan. Tenere 700 is Yamaha's adventure tourer in the middleweight segment and is claimed to be a "lightweight, go-anywhere, adventure touring motorcycle".

Ténéré 700 World Raid: Tested to the extreme

The first sign that Yamaha was developing a new Adventure Touring motorcycle came with the launch of the T7 concept in 2016. Displayed at motorcycle shows all over the world, it created immense interest and gave riders a taste of what was to come. In 2017 Yamaha introduced the Ténéré 700 World Raid prototype that was one step closer to the final production specification.

Since then, the Ténéré 700 World Raid prototype has undergone an intensive world tour in various key locations all over the globe. During this development phase, the bike was subjected to the most extreme testing in hostile terrain and severe climatic conditions.

Piloted by a team of professional riders including multi Dakar winner Stéphane Peterhansel and Official Yamalube Yamaha Rally Team riders Adrien van Beveren and Rodney Faggoter, the World Raid prototype was pushed to its limits across the globe, from Australia's unforgiving outback to the brutal South American deserts.

While accounting for thousands of hours of testing on the development bikes, the Ténéré 700 World Raid program also showcased the design of the motorcycle to many hundreds of local riders who were invited to give Yamaha their valuable input and help shape the final production model.

Ténéré 700 features a rally-bred T7-inspired Adventure Touring design.

The new Ténéré 700 comes equipped with a distinctive looking 4-LED headlight assembly that is a direct spin-off from Yamaha's latest factory rally bikes and the T7 concept machine.

The multi-function LCD display features two trip meters and comprehensive information including gear position, fuel level, estimated fuel range, average and instant fuel consumption. The braking system consists of dual 282mm wave-style front discs and a 245mm wave-style rear disc, and ABS is switchable for off-road conditions -

When it goes on sale in the second half of 2019, the Ténéré 700 goes up against the much anticipated KTM 790 Adventure. USA will be getting the bike only in the second half of 2020, and there are no indications of an India launch yet.

The bike looks absolutely fantastic! Offcourse Yamaha will never launch it here or it may come with some insane pricing.

That 880mm seat height will surely raise a lot of questions in the Indian market. That will require a lot of skill for the average Indian height.

Is this bike even an option for 5'7 to 6' people. It looks like its made for 6ft+ . Does anyone know of any 'short' people who ride a tenere?

Wrench kings have amply used the tenere as inspiration.

Not the other way around.

Gaston Rahier , height - 5'3" ...the shortest Dakar rally winner ever.

Imo people from 5'10 onwards can easily tip toe on both feet while the shorter ones can on one foot atleast. But, reaching the ground is one thing and being able to ride off-road is whole different ballgame.

What is this thing?. Looks like it rammed onto a minion and the minion got stuck onto the top of the bike.

New Yamaha Super Tenere 700, now that looks straight out of Rallye Dakar. I could've never imagined a manufacturer offering a motorcycle very close to Dakar rally spec motorcycles minus some features. For once I thought this is a Dakar rally replica bike from Yamaha. No wonder with inputs from Monsieur Dakar Stephane Peterhansel the bike for sure can take some beating and will be ideal for ADV purists. It is great to know that Yamaha listened to the inputs of professional and local riders alike to develop this motorcycle and it shows in the motorcycles' design.

However it doesn't have any electronics aids like riding modes, TC, SC, etc.(compared to KTM 790 ADV) but does have ABS which is switchable. As Yamaha Super Tenere 700 misses electronics aids it is speculated to be cheaper than its counterpart KTM 790 ADV.

This is a proper ADV tool bike for ADV/cross country touring. The power and torque figures look decent and so does the weight management and overall dynamics. Only fly in the ointment is will Yamaha offer this in India? If yes, then KTM 790 ADV will have some competition. YES YAMAHA!
