Yamaha Tenere 700 (2019 onwards)
The Yamaha Tenere (Ténéré) 700 and the new 2020 Rally Edition are the result of an intense development program that involved some of the world’s leading rally raid riders testing and evaluating the prototypes in a wide range of terrain all over the world.
With its compact and agile chassis as well as a characterful and torque-rich 689cc CP2 engine, this best-selling middleweight adventure bike has the ability to deliver thrilling off road performance together with exceptional long distance comfort on the highway.
Proudly assembled in France by a dedicated workforce alongside the Ténéré 700, the new Ténéré 700 Rally Edition features a special blue and yellow livery that pays homage to the Yamaha race bikes ridden by Jean-Claude Olivier (JCO) and Serge Bacou in the ’83 and ’84 editions of the Dakar rally.
Producing 54 kW of power, the Tenere 700 can be ridden on an A2 motorcycle license when restricted by 36%.
You will need a restrictor to ride the Yamaha Tenere 700 on an A2 license. See the Yamaha Tenere 700 specifications table for restriction info, and the restrictor kits section to see what restrictors are available for the Yamaha Tenere 700.
