    Default This teaser shows the full view of the Yamaha TÉNÉRÉ 700 WORLD RAID

    We might just have another awesome adventure motorcycle to look forward to. We have seen the BMW G 310 GS and the news of the upcoming KTM Adventure 390 has been floating around the internet for quite some time. In the middleweight section, we have the Suzuki V-Strom 650 coming to India and on that note, this teaser shows the full view of another one from Japan, the Yamaha TÉNÉRÉ 700 WORLD RAID.

    This particular motorcycle was showcased in EICMA 2017 and won laurels for the minimalistic and functional design. And now, this teaser video shows the full view of the motorcycle again. And riding this awesome middleweight adventure bike is none other than Nick Sanders. He is an established long distance rider and an ambassador for Yamaha. He once rode around the world in 19 days.

    Yamaha Ténéré 700 World Raid is based on the T7 concept bike from Yamaha. It borrows its engine from the no less insane Yamaha MT-07. The engine therefore is a 689cc parallel twin and the bike is built around a steel cradle frame.

    The fact that the bike is fully visible in the clip, we hope and are quite sure that it can mean only one thing- an imminent launch. Also, the timing of the release of the video seems like no coincidence as this the Motor Show time of the year with INTERMOT and EICMA coming up. We might as well see the motorcycle revealed at INTERMOT so stay tuned for more news regarding the Yamaha Ténéré 700.

    A couple of interesting points to note:

    Lots of accessories shown that are likely not standard on the bike: hard cases, full knobby tires, skid plate. Those will be options (bags, plate) or something you have to install yourself (tires).

    We at least get a decent shot of the cockpit, and I can see some notable differences between the 700 and its 1200 big brother. The 700 looks like it'll get two power sockets, and it has different switch gear (at least compared to my US 1200; European models may be different). It's a little hard to see, but it looks like the 700 will have regular round front discs instead of the "petal" type the 1200 has. There doesn't seem to be an electronic suspension connection, though that's a factory option for the big bike too so maybe they just didn't use that model of the 700. The gauge display looks like it's a non-TFT unit also, similar to the current 1200 which just uses a monochrome LCD unit. I see also that the tank top panel is carbon-fiber or a reasonable facsimile, presumably with the actual fuel cell hidden underneath, whereas the 1200 has a painted tank.

    And not that it matters much, but the whole "uncrating" sequence at the beginning is staged crap, since bikes aren't shipped new in fully assembled form including accessories. At the very least, the front wheel is off, and there's a stand of some kind that the frame rests on to hold the bike in place during transport. Also, the rider already has a Super Tenere 1200 (seen briefly in the background at the beginning).

    Put the phone away, put your helmet on, and ride!

    Scooters are like fat girls: fun to ride, but embarrassing if your friends see you with one.
