Yamaha strengthens its class leading Adventure line-up
Since its launch in 2019, the Ténéré 700 has become one of Yamaha’s best-selling models. Powered by Yamaha’s outstanding 690cc high torque CP2 engine and equipped with a versatile chassis with premium suspension systems, the Ténéré is the most successful bike in its category.
Yamaha is always looking to offer customers a diverse choice to match their different lifestyles and needs. So for 2024, the brand’s class-leading Adventure range will be further strengthened and diversified with the introduction of the Ténéré 700 Extreme.
Ténéré 700 Extreme– Hardcore off road performer
The bike’s name says it all – this is a hardcore off road performer with extended long travel suspension and a wide range of special chassis components designed to further enhance its go-anywhere essence.
For class-leading off-road handling with lightweight agility on rough terrain, the Ténéré 700 Extreme features premium fully adjustable KYB suspension systems with 20mm extra travel at the front and rear (compared to the Ténéré 700). For super-smooth front suspension action, the forks are treated with a durable Kashima coating that helps to eliminate stiction at lower speeds – and the gold coloured fork inner tube finish also underlines the bike’s overall feeling of quality.
The fully adjustable KYB suspension can be set up to work effectively with a variety of rider physiques and different riding styles, making the Ténéré 700 Extreme a serious hardcore performer. Aimed at riders with motocross or enduro experience who want added performance for the most challenging off-road terrain, this latest Ténéré adds an exciting new dimension to the Adventure category.
Factory-equipped with lightweight titanium footrests, as well as an aluminium radiator protector and chain guide, this high specification Adventure bike is ready to prove itself in a wide range of extreme conditions. Its two-piece front fender assembly consists of a colour matched high level enduro-style fender and a separate lower section to protect from dirt and debris – while a flatter one-piece rally seat enables quick and easy bodyweight shifting.
Its vertical 5-inch TFT meter features 3 separate themes, including a Rally Raid roadbook-style display for effective navigation in the back of beyond. Other exclusive features on this exciting new addition to the Ténéré family include lightweight competition type titanium footrests with 35% greater surface area for reduced pressure on boot soles – and to handle the most inhospitable surfaces the bike’s ground clearance is increased to 260mm.
Race-proven performance and class-leading durability
The Ténéré’s outstanding off road performance has been highlighted by Yamaha factory riders Alessandro Botturi and Pol Tarrés who have victoriously ridden their bikes in the world’s toughest Rally Races.
After creating history at the TransAnatolia rally raid with an epic 1-2 podium, Tarrés and Botturi will debut the 2024 Ténéré 700 Extreme at the last stage of the Italian Motorally Raid TT championship taking place in Olbia from 20th October.
With its premium long travel KYB suspension, high quality chassis components and upgraded TFT meter, the Ténéré 700 Extreme is a remarkably capable machine that can take adventurous riders into the wilderness and further to the Next Horizon.
