Watch: 2021 Yamaha Tenere 700 Tested

Recommended Posts

Published on 12.03.2020

A revolution is happening in the Adventure Motorcycle category. Riders have been clamouring for adventure bikes that are smaller, lighter, and more off-road focused, that can also travel longer distances comfortably. Now manufacturers are finally starting to listen. With its smooth yet powerful 689cc parallel-twin engine, compact rally-bred chassis, 452-pound wet weight and fully-adjustable suspension riding on 21″/18″ spoked wheels, the new Tenere 700 is clearly a part of the movement.

After what seemed like endless teasers, the Tenere 700 finally became available for sale last year in Europe and arrived this year here in North America as a 2021 model. With the release of the T7, Yamaha tries to hit the sweet spot in the segment by offering a capable performer, both on and off-road, that comes with a simplified electronics package and affordable price tag. Clearly the new Tenere 700 ticks a lot of boxes, but does it hit the mark? After several days of hard riding on some of our favorite test grounds, we put the Tenere 700 through its paces to see if it just might be the unicorn bike many of us have been longing for.
