2020 Yamaha Tenere 700
The 2021 Yamaha Tenere 700 is a new chapter for Yamaha’s adventure touring model range. It is a mid-point between an out-and-out rally adventure racer and a civil, calm street motorcycle. Powered by the same crossplane crankshaft, 689 cc parallel-twin from the MT-07, sending the dirt flying with 74 crank HP with 50 lbs-ft of torque, the Tenere 700 is a Super Tenere on a crash diet. A full 125 lbs less wet weight than the Super Tenere ES, the bike comes in at 450 lbs.
Part of the crash diet has been the stripping of pretty much anything that could be described as “in excess.” Multimode traction control? Gone. Electronically adjustable suspension? Gone. Hard side cases? Gone. What’s left is an adventure bike that, as even Yamaha puts it, a “lightweight, no-compromise dual-sport motorcycle.” As well, in true racing fashion, the only proper electronic rider air, ABS, can be turned completely and utterly off with the flick of a switch on the dash.
The 2021 Yamaha Tenere 700 starts at $9,999 US/$11,999 CA with expected deliveries in the latter half of 2020.
