Yamaha Ténéré 700 World Raid

Ténéré 700 - a lightweight no compromise adventure bike with one of the highest specifications in its class, and one of the most exciting and significant new ADV models to be launched for many years.

Equipped with the successful CP2 689cc parallel-twin engine and a completely new chassis, the Ténéré 700 is designed to deliver class-leading handling and agility in the dirt - combined with high speed long distance performance on the road - making it extremely capable in Australian conditions.

689cc 4-stroke CP2 Engine

689cc 4-stroke CP2 Engine

When you’ve experienced the CP2 2-cylinder 689cc engine with its 270° crank you’ll understand why it’s one if Yamaha’s most successful units. There’s strong linear torque throughout making it an effective and controllable performer off road – and its excellent fuel economy together with compact dimensions and a low weight make it the ideal adventure powerplant.

Dual side mounted fuel tanks

Dual side mounted fuel tanks

The Ténéré 700 World Raid is equipped with dual side-mounted 23-litre fuel tanks that give a potential range of up to 500km. Located low on the chassis, this large capacity design centralises the mass for agile handling. The highest part of the tank sits much lower than on the Ténéré 700 to give a smooth transition between the front of the seat and the tank for easy rider mobility.

Flat rally inspired 2-piece seat

Flat rally inspired 2-piece seat

This design enables the rider to move backwards and forwards with minimal effort when shifting their body weight to maintain control on rough terrain, and the new ergonomics are suited to both sit down and stand up riding positions. The new seat’s 2-piece design allows for the easy removal of the rear section to enable the fitment of accessories such as a rack or luggage, and the dual material construction is designed to offer a firm but comfortable ride.

5in colour TFT with mobile connectivity

5in colour TFT with mobile connectivity

The 5 inch colour TFT display offers you three different screen displays – from a contemporary digital design to a more traditional analogue look – and there’s also a roadbook style screen with tripmeters. The bike’s CCU communicates with the MyRide app so that text messages and incoming call alerts are displayed on the screen, keeping you connected at all times.

Öhlins adjustable steering damper

Öhlins adjustable steering damper

Mounted close behind the upper triple clamp, the compact and lightweight Öhlins steering damper provides added chassis controllability – particularly in challenging off road terrain. Its 18 different damping settings allow you to select your preferred level of feel and feedback.

High specification KYB front forks

High specification KYB front forks

For predictable off-road handling and easy steering the Ténéré 700 World Raid is fitted with 43mm KYB front forks with extended 230mm travel that offers full adjustability for spring preload, as well as compression and rebound damping – enabling you to set them up to match different loads, terrain and speeds. A dark bronze coloured Kashima coating on the outer tubes gives reduced stiction for smoother action, and also offers improved durability and corrosion resistance.

Aluminium piggyback rear shock

Aluminium piggyback rear shock

The rear suspension system uses a redesigned linkage as well as a new rear shock equipped with a piggyback reservoir and an aluminium body that ensures consistent damping. A larger bump stop is used to handle rough terrain, and the World Raid’s new shock gives 220mm rear wheel travel, 20mm more that the Ténéré 700.

Off-road designed air cleaner box

Off-road designed air cleaner box

The Ténéré 700 World Raid’s air cleaner box is designed to handle the extreme off road terrain that this long distance adventure bike is built for. While featuring the same volume as the Ténéré 700, the airbox has been equipped with a new forward-facing intake duct that is designed to prevent ingress of dust and debris thrown up by the rear wheel.

Switchable ABS for easy adjustment

Switchable ABS for easy adjustment

3-mode switchable ABS gives you the option to decide exactly how you want your bike to behave on different surfaces. Mode 1 is fully on, with ABS working on both wheels – a legal requirement on public roads. Mode 2 is front wheel on rear wheel off, giving added confidence on loose gravel tracks – and Mode 3 is fully off, giving you ultimate controllability when riding in the dirt.
