THE NEXT HORIZON IS YOURS
A lightweight; no compromise adventure bike with outstanding reliability opens up a new world of possibilities.
Features may include:
Developed from the stellar MT-07 Hyper Naked sportbike; the Ténéré 700 engine combines exceptional reliability and exciting power delivery in a compact; fuel-efficient package. With an overall size similar to some single-cylinder motors; the 689cc fuel-injected; liquid-cooled; DOHC inline twin gives the Ténéré 700 exceptional handing; while the counterbalanced two-cylinder design provides smooth; long-legged power ideal for long days in the saddle.
The 2-cylinder engine features Yamaha’s “Crossplane Crankshaft Concept” 270-degree crank—which traces its lineage directly to the Dakar-dominating XTZ750 race bikes—to provide linear torque development in response to the rider’s throttle input. The CP2® engine is also light; slim and compact; and offers an excellent level of rider/machine communication.
The CP2 engine shifts its cylinder bores slightly forward; towards the exhaust side. This offset reduces piston to cylinder wall friction; for enhanced reliability; more power and improved fuel economy.
A lightweight; high-strength tubular steel frame provides a tuned rigidity balance for nimble; responsive handling with the strength and durability needed to tackle the harshest terrain with confidence. The chassis utilizes a short 62.6-inch wheelbase for agility and boasts 9.5 inches of ground clearance to tackle whatever the trail throws at you.
The ability to shift body weight forward and rearward to suit the terrain is crucial in off-road riding situations; so the Ténéré 700 features a flat seat and slim body that allows maximum rider agility. The narrow body and fuel tank also enable the rider to grip the tank whether sitting or standing; giving added confidence whether you're riding on dirt or asphalt.
Aggressive dirt riding requires capable suspension; so the Ténéré 700 utilizes a long-travel 43mm inverted fork with 8.3 inches of travel. The beefy inverted layout is highly resistant to flex to maintain precise steering and suspension action; and the fork is fully adjustable to match changing road and trail conditions. The linkage-type rear shock is similarly outfitted for adventure; with 7.9 inches of travel; and a remote preload adjuster to easily fine tune for changing loads or riding conditions.
Echoing the focused; purposeful design of rally-built “works” racing machines; the Ténéré 700 utilizes a clear headlight nacelle with quad LED headlights. This vertically-stacked two-plus-two headlight design provides aggressive looks and excellent visibility; while the LEDs themselves are bright; long-lasting and resistant to shock and vibration.
The rally-inspired upper fairing and standard handguards ensure wind and weather protection ideal for long riding days. The taper aluminum handlebar is positioned for a relaxed riding position when sitting or standing on the pegs. The cockpit is also designed to accommodate additional navigation devices; such as a GPS or rally road book.
