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 for 2020 the exclusive new Yamaha Ténéré 700 Rally Edition comes with heritage rally colours and an even higher 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.
Heritage Rally colours
Featuring a modern translation of the legendary and striking blue and yellow combination that was used for early Ténéré models racing the Dakar. The very first production XT 600 Ténéré of 1983 proudly featured this colour combination based on these early Dakar colours. Blue-yellow contrast, gold rims and speedblock design (also inspired by Dakar heritage). Details in finishing such as the black handlebars complement the overall design.
Dedicated Rally seat
The dedicated one-piece Rally Seat offers a slightly higher and straighter riding position for easier body movement and more comfort for those long expeditions. The seat is 20 mm higher than the standard seat; seat height is therefore 895 mm. Dual material finish and white printed YAMAHA logo gives enhanced Rally image.
Akrapovič slip-on muffler
Sporty and lightweight slip on muffler by Akrapovič combines performance with rally looks and a beautiful throaty-rich sound, without being loud. Fully street legal, includes carbon heat shield and silencer clamp and non-removable Db killer.
Heavy-duty skid plate
Heavy duty 4 mm thick aluminium skid plate, offering extra protection for engine and frame during challenging off-road trips. Convenient toolbox can be added optionally using the mounting points on this skid plate.
Stylish aluminium cover that protects the radiator from small stones and twigs. Compact and lightweight design. Special coating for durability.
Stylish laser cut aluminium chain guard.
Compact flashers front and rear featuring 9 LEDs in each blinker.
Rubber profiled grip pads for maximum knee grip during stand-up riding.
Off-road hand grips
Off-road hand grips give better grip and control in dusty and muddy conditions.
