This is the model everyone wanted to see during Yamaha’s presentation ahead of EICMA. In true OEM fashion, Yamaha kept the T7 for last as the metaphorical cherry on top. The Ténéré 700 gives Yamaha’s adventure lineup a new entry-level option, one the company introduces as a "lightweight, go-anywhere, adventure touring motorcycle".
Powered by a 689cc cross-plane parallel twin, the T7 is meant to become one of the most versatile bike in the segment. The bike will come out in 2019 for Europe—us poor North Americans will have to wait for model-year 2020 to see the Ténéré 700 join the ranks.
