New Yamaha Ténéré 700 World Rally

POSTED: 01/06/2023



Yamaha’s ultimate high specification long distance adventure bike

Featuring iconic factory racing colours inspired by Stéphane Peterhansel’s 1993 Dakar race bike, the new Ténéré 700 World Rally is the most exclusive model in the 2023 Adventure range, celebrating Yamaha’s remarkable Rally performances with a range of different Ténéré models over the past 40 years.

The new Ténéré 700 World Rally represents the ultimate version of Yamaha’s long distance adventure bike and can trace its heritage back to the very beginning of the world’s toughest race.

The story began back in 1979 when Yamaha won the first ever Dakar Rally. Inspired by this success and encouraged by the growing interest in long distance rally events, the company embarked upon the development of a machine that would forever change the motorcycle world.

Introduced in 1983, the original Ténéré is recognized as one of the most influential and iconic motorcycles of the 20th century. Equipped with a large capacity fuel tank, rugged chassis and high torque engine, Yamaha’s first ever Adventure bike gave thousands of riders the opportunity to go to faraway places and discover new horizons.

No other Adventure bike comes close to matching the pure racing heritage of the legendary Yamaha Ténéré. Not only did it enable a whole new breed of moto adventurers to live their dreams – it also inspired many riders to compete in the world’s toughest Rally events that have tested the rider and machine to the limit.


The Premium Desert Stormer

With its bold new blue, pink fluo and silver historic rally racing colours based on Stéphane Peterhansel’s 1993 factory bike, the Ténéré 700 World Rally celebrates Yamaha’s winning Dakar history and pays homage to all of the heroic factory riders who have ridden in the world’s toughest event.

Its rally-ready specification includes premium long travel KYB suspension systems, as well as 23-litre dual side-mounted fuel tanks, an exclusive Akrapovič titanium muffler and a dedicated flat 2-piece seat – and there’s also a 5-inch colour TFT meter with smartphone connectivity, 3-mode switchable ABS and an Öhlins adjustable steering damper.
