Lean, mean, and dirty. Here are five important facts about Team Blue's new ADV bike.

We finally got a look at Yamaha's new Ténéré 700 today during the company's pre-EICMA event. After two years of teasing, taunting, and general obfuscation, Team Blue finally rolled the new middleweight adventurer out where we could all see it. We covered the official launch earlier, but since there's a lot to unpack with the new bike we thought we'd dig down and look at some of the finer details. From the torquey crossplane parallel twin engine to the ergonomics to the slimline, long-range fuel tank, the Ténéré 700 has a lot to offer ADV riders.
