When the first Dakar Rally took place back in 1979 it gave the Yamaha XT a chance to prove itself in the world’s toughest race. XT riders won this legendary event in ’79 and ’80, and inspired the development of the original Ténéré in 1983 – Yamaha’s iconic adventure bike that changed the world of motorcycling.
Ride the legend
40 years on, the Yamaha Ténéré 700 is capturing the imagination of a new generation of riders who want to discover what’s over the next horizon. And the exclusive Yamaha Ténéré 700 Rally Edition comes with heritage rally colours and a high standard specification.
Featuring blue/yellow racing livery, speedblock graphics and gold rims, the Ténéré 700 Rally Edition pays tribute to the factory bikes raced by Dakar heroes Jean-Claude Olivier and Serge Bacou. With its premium components and pure Ténéré DNA, this is Yamaha’s ultimate middleweight adventure bike.
