Ténéré 700 World Raid
This is Yamaha's ultimate long distance adventure motorcycle that has the power to change the way you explore our planet. Equipped with high capacity dual fuel tanks and long travel suspension that can take you further than ever, the Ténéré 700 World Raid gives you the chance to discover what’s beyond the Next Horizon.
Back in the early 1980s Yamaha launched a bike that was to start a whole new movement in motorcycling. With its big tank, rugged engine and versatile chassis, the original XT600 Ténéré made long distance adventures a reality for anyone with the desire to discover new landscapes and different ways of life.
BEYOND THE NEXT HORIZON
Its large capacity 23-litre dual fuel tanks give a range of up to 500 kilometres – making it possible to cross huge areas of wilderness without worrying about running dry. To stay informed and in touch wherever you go, the 5” TFT colour display with smartphone connectivity shows incoming text and call notifications on screen.
Exclusive features include an Öhlins steering damper as well as fully adjustable long-travel front and rear suspension that’s designed to handle tough off-road terrain – and the 3-mode ABS gives confidence in all conditions. All this bike is missing is a rider like you who has the courage to break out of your comfort zone and go beyond the next horizon.
23-litre dual side-mounted fuel tanks
The Ténéré 700 World Raid is equipped with dual side-mounted 23-litre fuel tanks that give a potential range of up to 500 km. Located low on the chassis, this large capacity design centralizes the mass for agile handling. The highest part of the tank sits much lower than on the Ténéré 700 to give a smooth transition between the front of the seat and the tank for easy rider mobility.
Flat rally inspired 2-piece seat
This design enables the rider to move backwards and forwards with minimal effort when shifting their body weight to maintain control on rough terrain. The ergonomics are suited for both sit down and stand up riding positions. The seat’s 2-piece design allows for the easy removal of the rear section to enable the fitment of accessories such as a rack or luggage, while the dual material construction is designed to offer a firm but comfortable ride.
5’’ colour TFT with mobile connectivity
The 5” colour TFT display offers you three different screen displays – from a contemporary digital design to a more traditional analogue look – and there’s also a roadbook style screen with countdown tripmeters. The bike’s CCU communicates with the MyRide app so that text messages and incoming call alerts are displayed on the screen, keeping you connected at all times.
3-Mode switchable ABS
3-mode switchable ABS gives you the option to decide exactly how you want your bike to behave on different surfaces. Mode 1 is fully on, with ABS working on both wheels – a legal requirement on public roads. Mode 2 is front wheel on rear wheel off, giving added confidence on loose gravel tracks – and Mode 3 is fully off, giving you ultimate controllability when riding in the dirt.
High specification 43 mm KYB front forks, 230 mm travel
For predictable off-road handling and easy steering the Ténéré 700 World Raid is fitted with 43mm KYB front forks with extended 230mm travel that offers full adjustability for spring preload, as well as compression and rebound damping – enabling you to set them up to match different loads, terrain and speeds. A dark bronze coloured Kashima coating on the outer tubes gives reduced stiction for smoother action, and also offers improved durability and corrosion resistance.
Öhlins adjustable steering damper
Mounted close behind the upper triple clamp, the compact and lightweight Öhlins steering damper provides added chassis controllability – particularly in challenging off road terrain. Its 18 different damping settings allow you to select your preferred level of feel and feedback.
Aluminium piggyback rear shock, long 220mm travel
The rear suspension system uses a redesigned linkage as well as a rear shock equipped with a piggyback reservoir and an aluminium body that ensures consistent damping. A large bump stop is used to handle rough terrain, and the World Raid’s shock gives 220mm rear wheel travel, 20mm more that the Ténéré 700.
High-torque EU5 CP2 engine
When you’ve experienced the EU5 CP2 2-cylinder 690cc engine with its 270° crank you’ll understand why it’s one of Yamaha’s most successful units. There’s strong linear torque throughout making it an effective and controllable performer off road – and its excellent fuel economy together with compact dimensions and a low weight make it the ideal adventure powerplant.
Newly designed air cleaner box
The Ténéré 700 World Raid’s air cleaner box is designed to handle the extreme off road terrain that this long distance adventure bike is built for. While featuring the same volume as the Ténéré 700, the airbox has been equipped with a forward-facing intake duct that is designed to prevent ingress of dust and debris thrown up by the rear wheel.
