The 2024 Ténéré 700 has a liquid-cooled 689cc inline-Twin derived from the MT-07 naked sportbike that features Yamaha’s “Crossplane Crankshaft Concept” 270-degree crank.

After 3,000 miles of mixed riding for a tour test of a 2021 Ténéré 700, our reviewer had the following to say: “In my local mountains or out in the desert, on pavement or off, the T7 has been an excellent partner for exploration, corner carving and flat-out movin’ down the road.”

The Ténéré 700 has a fully adjustable 43mm inverted fork with 8.3 inches of travel and a rear single shock with remote-adjustable preload, rebound damping, and 7.9 inches of travel. The bike rides on spoked wheels (21-inch front/18-inch rear) wrapped in Pirelli Scorpion Rally STR tires with tubes. It has a 34.4-inch seat height, 9.4 inches of ground clearance, and a wet weight of 452 lb.

The Ténéré 700 still has dual 282mm discs up front and a single 245mm disc in the rear, but a new feature for 2024 is the addition of a new ABS mode. Instead of the previous model’s on/off ABS selection, the new model now features three-mode selectable ABS allowing riders to choose their preferred level of braking intervention. Mode 1 fully activates ABS on both front and rear wheels, Mode 2 enables ABS on front wheel only and turns ABS off for the rear wheel, and Mode 3 turns ABS off for both the front and rear wheel.

Another update is a new 5-inch color TFT display. With functionality controlled by a new scrolling dial on the right handlebar, the new display offers two different screen themes: a modern dynamic design and a more traditional look reminiscent of the analog era.

The 2024 Ténéré 700 also features Yamaha Y-Connect smartphone connectivity, which works in conjunction with the Y-Connect app to enable a direct connection between motorcycle and smartphone. Y-Connect capability for the Ténéré 700 includes the ability to receive incoming text and phone call notifications on the new TFT display and track and record key motorcycle ride data within the app, including distance covered, average fuel consumption, top speed, and more.

Additional updates include new front and rear LED turnsignals, along with prewiring for the installation of Yamaha’s accessory Quick Shifter.

  1. When is yamaha going to send the tenere 700 would raid to the USA and when is yamaha going to built a replacement for the wr250r to compete with Honda 300l and kawasaki klx300.. come on yamaha get with the program.. no wants that out dated xt250

    • It would be nice for Yamaha to offer an updated 300. My guess is it would be competitive price-wise with the others, just like the old 250. There’s always a fly in the ointment.

  2. Where is the Yamaha R9. Where is theXSR 900 GP.
    Yamaha should have learned from the Tenere 700 exciting bikes sell, stop pumping out the typical boring Japanese bikes. When you hear the story of how Yamaha France had to fight with Yamaha tooth and the nail on the Tenere 700 and then it became one of their biggest successes you’d think that they would take the hint.

  3. wow. 10.8 if available. Local dealer here expects 2 maybe 3 and with adjusted mark up will be 12.5 +++. I’ve demo’d the T7 twice, really want one but between limited availability and dealer theft it’s impossible to get because sorry, I’m not paying 1700 over msrp BEFORE the bs dealer processing, prep, and other fees before tax and registration. I asked if taking deposits (on a whim) and was told the $1k is non-refundable if the deal doesn’t close. So let me understand this, If I buy one here I’m paying at least 14.8-15.3 otd. Ain’t happening and to bad Yamaha doesn’t build enough units to stop dealers from ripping the customer.

  4. Local dealer in Tigard/Beaverton Oregon has been ripping people off with a $5000 mark-up since the Tenere hit the market.

    It’s this sort of thing that makes one realize the American market place for Japanese motorcycles is irreparably broken.

    Too bad the American contingency of the Japanese manufacturers can’t get the simplest things figured out. Supply and demand and such.

  5. The Super Tenere’ is in SERIOUS need of an update. It is far behind the current offerings from other brands, and will likely be the reason I switch to a Tiger or other brand.

    • Alan the rock solid realibilty and less electronics is the reason a lot of Us don’t want the Super Ten to change. I’m hoping for more of the same.

  6. Hey Yamaha how about lowering the seat high for shorter riders? You are keeping a large segment of the population that would purchase it. Not everyone is 5 ’10 or taller.

  7. Improvements that should have been made…
    1. Hevier springs for riders not 165lbs with gear people want to use this bike to tour
    2. Change the exhaust hanger and setup to lift it higher away from the swingarm
    3. Tubeless setup

  8. In my state of Maine the roads have always been rough and worn so My 21 T7 has been a great choice with its long suspension. It is a Swiss Army knife of a machine. On the street i can average 60 to 70 mph with the 1 tooth higher MT 07 front sprocket I’ve installed. All it needs is electronic cruise control and a higher rate rear shock spring. The bike is too heavy if dropped off road. Can’t have it all I guess so perhaps an all new WR or XT 350 or better yet 400 are being developed. 35 hp 325 lbs with the ability to cruise at 75 mph on our highways, ide snap one of those up if built

  9. Its a long ride from where I live in the midwest to the mountain states – I’m waiting for Yamaha to add cruise control to the a Tenere 700.
