Ténéré 700 / Motorcycle

This 689cc adventure bike carries the Ténéré name and 40-year history blazed by Yamaha’s Paris-Dakar rally machines, and true to this DNA mounts a parallel twin crossplane engine. The Ténéré 700 was designed and engineered as a “go anywhere” motorcycle and is capable in the desert sands but equally usable on trails or the pavement. Behind the rally-bred quad-LED headlight, the 16-litre fuel tank provides over 350 km of potential range while the beefy suspension front and rear handily soaks up rough terrain. As adventure bike models balloon in size and complexity, the Ténéré remains a simpler, more straightforward partner for the journey.
