Yamaha will release its much-anticipated Ténéré 700 adventure motorcycle late this year in Australia and we tip the price will be about $16,500.
Our tip is based on the recently announced UK price of £8699 where the Ténéré.
That is 27% less than the UK price of the KTM 790 Adventure at £11,999.
In Australia, the KTM 790 Adventure and Adventure R will arrive in June 2019 at $21,195 ride away and an extra $1500 for the R model at $22,695.
