Yamaha began to blow up the rumor of their adventure bike in early 2016 and the Japanese manufacturer took about 1.5 years to complete the Yamaha T7 Prototype, which has now been officially introduced as The Ténéré 700 World Raid. This motorbike is still in the form of a prototype and is being developed for mass production.
According to the manufacturer, The Ténéré 700 World Raid is the latest in a series of adventure machines that runs all the way back to the ever celebrated Ténéré 600, released in 1983.
The Ténéré line is now and has always been, about exploration, about getting into the wild and chewing up miles on a bike that can take a beating. The 2018 Ténéré 700 World Raid is a world-hopping event that shows Yamaha never lost their sense of adventure.
Thanks to its compact design and linear power transmission, this specially developed CP engine offers the best performance for this bike. Even though the style is so aggressive, Yamaha makes every effort to ensure that the Tenere 700 World Raid displays the approachable feel.
Although carrying the concept of adventure, this motorbike is claimed to be still comfortable to drive in all conditions, both for short distance trips and long distances. Thanks to the use of the long-travel suspension machine feature.
The chassis embedded inside this motorbike uses steel material from the T7 concept which is optimized for high strength levels to support its durability. For convenience, Yamaha applies an upside-down shock breaker on the front and monoshock on the rear.
Not only that, but this motorbike also gets certain carbon fiber such as the front fenders and motor tail parts. For its lighting, the Yamaha Tenere 700 World Raid Edition 2019 uses a four-element projector lamp, similar to the Yamaha motorbike that competes in the Paris-Dakar Competition.
Yamaha claims that this bike is suitable for use in two track (asphalt or offroad). The 16-liter fuel tank will push the bike to travel for more than 346 km. Behind the windscreen, there is an LCD screen on the dashboard that displays information in the form of speed, rpm, remaining fuel and its range, trips and much more. There is also a GPS holder on it.
ABS Braking System
The 700 Tenere Yamaha is supported by a 43 mm inverted front fork with 210 mm, and a preload-adjustable rear link-type monoshock suspension with 200 mm. Braking power is supported by Brembo brakes that bite the 282 mm dish in front and 245 mm on the rear.
On the braking sector, the ABS system has been applied which can be deactivated for offroad. The 700 Tenere Yamaha will be sold starting in the second half of 2019. Unfortunately, the price of the motorbike has not been officially released by the company.
