Yamaha XTZ700 Tenere

A lightweight, no compromise adventure bike with outstanding reliability opens up a new world of possibilities.

Whilst the Ténéré might not boast the same figures as the KTM, and in true Yamaha form, it’s sure to be a solid, reliable, simple, no drama machine capable of anything thrown at it, particularly with the well proven CP2 engine at its heart. Using the compact 689cc parallel twin platform that made the MT-07 such a successful middleweight machine, the new Ténéré 700 will make 72 horsepower and 68 Nm (50 lb-ft) in a package that will weigh 205 kg in its European configuration, wet and full of 16 litres of fuel.

Description

  • Advanced Twin-Cylinder Engine
    The Ténéré 700™ features a fuel-injected, 689cc liquid-cooled, inline twin-cylinder engine derived from Yamaha’s award-winning MT-07®. This compact powerplant features an ideal power delivery for adventure riding, for tractable and controllable power in every riding condition.
  • Adventure-Focused Ergonomics
    The Ténéré 700 features a narrow body, slim fuel tank, and flat seat that allow maximum rider agility, enabling the rider to grip the tank whether sitting or standing, giving added confidence on dirt or asphalt. The protective fairing and handguards work with the tapered handlebar to ensure comfort on the longest rides.
  • Not Afraid To Get Dirty
    Highly adjustable, long-travel suspension is mated to dirt-ready spoked wheels mounting 21-inch front and 18-inch rear tires, ensuring that Ténéré 700 doesn’t shy away from aggressive riding when the pavement ends. The triple-disc brakes also feature selectable ABS, which can be disabled when desired for off-road riding.
  • Refinement Meets Durability
    Every aspect of the Ténéré 700 is built to combine Yamaha’s legendary reliability with impressive performance, from the compact LED headlights, to the strong and narrow steel frame, to the smooth counterbalanced motor, and crystal-clear LCD gauges.
