2022 Ténéré 700 And Ténéré 700 Rally EditionTénéré legend continues: 2022 Ténéré 700 and Ténéré 700 Rally Edition

Ténéré legend continues
Few other bikes can trace their lineage right back to the start of the adventure movement. When Thierry Sabine organised the very first Paris-Dakar rally in 1979 the bike to ride was the Yamaha XT500. This tough single cylinder machine won the world’s toughest event in 1979 and 1980 – and its runaway success inspired Yamaha’s engineers and designers to develop the first ever Ténéré in 1983.
2022 Ténéré 700 And Ténéré 700 Rally EditionWith its big fuel tank, tough chassis with long travel suspension, and a rugged high-torque engine, the original XT600 Ténéré is one of the most significant models in Yamaha’s history.

Its importance in the development of the adventure scene cannot be understated. Because not only did it make Rally Raid events accessible to every rider who wanted to live their dream and take on the ultimate 2-wheel challenge – the first Ténéré was also the first Yamaha that made round the world exploration accessible to anyone with the desire to seek out new challenges.

During its 40 year history the Ténéré has constantly evolved, going from a single cylinder engine to a 2-cylinder layout with the 750cc Super Ténéré in 1989, and then the 1200cc Super Ténéré launched in 2010.

2022 Ténéré 700 And Ténéré 700 Rally EditionTénéré 700 – Living life without limits
In 2019 Yamaha once again completely refreshed the concept with the launch of the Ténéré 700, one of the most eagerly awaited motorcycles of the decade. Driven by the company’s hugely successful 689cc CP2 high-torque engine fitted into a rugged new backbone chassis equipped with premium suspension – and featuring lightweight bodywork with an aggressive rally style quad LED headlight unit – the Ténéré 700 offered customers an alternative vision of how an Adventure bike should be built.

By creating a lighter, medium capacity machine with a real off road ability – and pitched at an affordable price – the Ténéré 700 was an immediate success all over Europe, with around 20,000 units sold each year.

This best-selling adventure model continues into 2022 with a range of new colours. The Icon Blue version is a dynamic new colour-way inspired by the factory’s race bikes, and features blue body panels and blue wheel rims. Midnight Black projects an understated and moody look, and features an all-black body with black wheel rims.

Deliveries to European Yamaha dealers will commence from the December 2021. Prices vary per region, so please contact the national Yamaha distributor for full information.
