Yamaha Motor Australia has confirmed the highly-anticipated Tenere 700 is set for an Australian release date of December 2019, priced at an exceptional RRP $15,499.

The rally-bred dual-sport 689cc parallel twin will come in three colour variations: Ceramic Ice, Competition White and Power Black. Customers are encouraged to contact their local Yamaha dealer to place a deposit on the long-awaited light, nimble and compact adventure bike.

“This news will come as a great relief for a large number of adventure bike customers who have been in contact asking about this model’s release date,” said Yamaha Motor Australia’s sales and marketing manager Matt Ferry. “That’s because Tenere 700 is a supremely off-road capable adventure bike that will suit Australian conditions to a tee.

“We have ordered some pre-production units to arrive in June so that potential customers can see the Tenere 700 in the flesh – look out for one at key events soon.”

The Tenere 700 is powered by Yamaha’s highly respected 689cc parallel-twin engine. The key characteristic of this compact CP2 engine is its strong and linear torque output that gives instant throttle response together with outstanding acceleration – attributes that make it a capable and versatile performer on and off the road.
