2021 Yamaha Ténéré 700 available summer 2020

Yamaha reports that its 2021 Ténéré 700 adventure-touring bike will be available in early summer 2020.

The $9,999 mid-sized machine is powered by a fuel-injected 689cc liquid-cooled inline twin-cylinder engine. It sits in a lightweight tubular steel frame. The bike has a 62.6-inch wheelbase and has 9.5 inches of ground clearance.

Suspension duties are handled by a long-travel 43mm inverted fork with 8.3 inches of travel and linkage-type rear shock with 7.9 inches of travel. Plus, the rear shock has a remote preload adjuster.

Braking is handled by a pair of wave-style 282mm discs in front and a 245mm wave-style rotor in the rear. ABS is standard but can be temporarily disabled.

The 2021 Yamaha Ténéré 700 features lightweight spoked wheels with a 21-inch up front and 18 in the back.

The machine will be available in colors that Yamaha calls Ceramic Ice, Intensity White, and Matte Black.
