Yamaha 2021 Ténéré 700 Adventure Touring Motorcycle

Top Features

The Yamaha 2021 Ténéré 700 Adventure Touring Motorcycle is powered by a 689cc liquid-cooled, fuel-injected inline twin-cylinder engine based on Yamaha’s award-winning MT-07®. This small engine is designed for adventure riding, with tractable and controlled power in all riding conditions.

The Ténéré 700’s compact body, thin gasoline tank, and flat seat provide maximum rider mobility, allowing the rider to grasp the tank whether sitting or standing, increasing confidence on dirt and asphalt. The protective shielding and handguards work with the tapered handlebar to provide comfort on even the most demanding journeys.

Ténéré 700’s highly adjustable, long-travel suspension is linked to dirt-ready spoked wheels with 21-inch front and 18-inch rear tires, guaranteeing that when the pavement ends, Ténéré 700 doesn’t shy away from aggressive riding. Selectable ABS is also available on the triple-disc brakes, which may be turned off for off-road riding.

From the small LED headlamps to the sturdy and thin steel frame to the smooth counterbalanced motor and crystal-clear LCD gauges, the Ténéré 700 is designed to combine Yamaha’s renowned dependability with outstanding performance.

Engine

The Yamaha 2021 Ténéré 700 Adventure Touring Motorcycle engine, derived from the MT-07 Hyper Naked sportbike, combines outstanding dependability and thrilling power delivery in a small, fuel-efficient design. The 689cc fuel-injected, liquid-cooled, DOHC inline twin offers the Ténéré 700 excellent handling. At the same time, the counterbalanced two-cylinder architecture delivers smooth, long-legged power perfect for long days in the saddle.

The 2-cylinder engine uses Yamaha’s “Crossplane Crankshaft Concept” 270-degree crank to offer linear torque development in response to the rider’s throttle input, which can be traced back to the Dakar-winning XTZ750 racing motorcycles. The CP2® engine is also lightweight, thin, and compact, with an outstanding rider-machine connection.

The cylinder bores of the CP2 engine are slightly shifted forward towards the exhaust side. This offset lowers friction between the piston and the cylinder wall, increasing dependability, greater power, and better fuel efficiency.

The six-speed transmission “stacks” the gearbox and crankshaft in a triangle arrangement to make the total engine size smaller front-to-back, allowing for optimum engine placement in the frame for excellent weight balance. The gearbox ratios are set to maximize low- to mid-speed torque and good reaction qualities, allowing the rider to concentrate on the road or trail ahead.

The electronic fuel injection settings have been fine-tuned to provide a mix of quick response—excellent for difficult off-road riding—and smooth, linear delivery, which is perfect for flowing progress when back on the road. The result is a highly flexible engine with excellent fuel efficiency, strong acceleration, and precise controllability on and off the road.

Chassis/Suspension

A lightweight, high-strength tubular steel frame offers a calibrated rigidity balance for agile, responsive handling while still providing the strength and durability required to take on the most challenging terrain. For agility, the chassis features a short 62.6-inch wheelbase and 9.5 inches of ground clearance to handle anything the trail throws at you.

In off-road riding conditions, the ability to transfer body weight forward and backward to fit the terrain is critical. Therefore the Ténéré 700 has a flat seat and thin body for optimum rider mobility. The narrow body and gasoline tank also allow the rider to grasp the tank whether sitting or standing, providing additional confidence whether riding on dirt or asphalt.

The Ténéré 700 has a long-travel 43mm inverted fork with 8.3 inches of travel, ideal for aggressive dirt riding. The fork is entirely adjustable to fit changing road and trail conditions, and the sturdy inverted structure is exceptionally resistant to flex to retain accurate steering and suspension action. Thanks to 7.9 inches of travel and a remote preload adjustment, the linkage-type rear shock is equally equipped for adventure, with 7.9 inches of travel and a remote preload adjuster to fine-tune for changing loads or riding conditions.

For strong deceleration that isn’t scared of dirt and grit, the Ténéré 700 has a pair of wave-style 282mm front discs and a 245mm wave-style rotor in the back. The Ténéré 700 comes equipped with ABS to enhance rider confidence and avoid wheel lock-ups in low-traction situations. Still, riders may temporarily disable the system for complete manual control—ideal for the specific demands of rugged off-road terrain.

Unlike many so-called adventure bikes, which have cast alloy wheels and road-biased tires, the Ténéré 700 has durable spoked wheels with 21-inch front and 18-inch rear tires, making it suitable for both on- and off-road riding. These wheels are solid and lightweight, and they come with a variety of tire options, ranging from aggressive pure enduro tires to flexible dual-sport alternatives.

Additional Features

The Ténéré 700 has a clean headlamp nacelle with quad LED headlights, evoking the complete, purposeful look of rally-built “works” racing bikes. This two-plus-two headlamp design is vertically stacked for aggressive aesthetics and excellent visibility, while the LEDs themselves are brilliant, long-lasting, and shock and vibration resistant.

Wind and weather protection is delivered by the rally-inspired top fairing and standard handguards, which are excellent for extended riding days. When standing or sitting on the pegs, the tapered aluminum handlebar is positioned for a comfortable riding posture. Additional navigation equipment, such as a GPS or rally route guide, may also be accommodated in the cockpit.

The compact instrument panel provides a wealth of data that can be consumed without taking your gaze away from the road or track. Gear position, the gasoline level, two trip meters, projected fuel range, average and immediate fuel consumption, and more are all shown on the multi-function LCD.

The Yamaha 2021 Ténéré 700 Adventure Touring Motorcycle is ready for the Next Horizon, with a fuel range of over 215 miles per fill-up thanks to its fuel-efficient engine and small 4.2-gallon fuel tank.
