No Word on the U.S. Yet
The Yamaha Tenere 700 is a highly anticipated adventure touring motorcycle, and its set to debut in Europe in 2019. Yamaha recently released pricing information for the European-spec bike. According to ADV Pulse, the bike will cost €9,299 which equates to about $10,600.
The lucky European riders will get to enjoy online ordering, too. This means they’ll be able to get the bike as soon as possible. However, there’s a caveat here, that price is exclusive to online orders. Once the online orders are done on July 31, the price will no longer stay at €9,299.
The U.S.-spec bike will not arrive until late 2020 due to differences in regulations. When it does, I’d imagine the pricing to be very similar to the European variant. There’s no word yet on if U.S. buyers will have a chance to place an online order at a special price for the motorcycle. One thing that will be different for the U.S. model, according to ADV Pulse is the fact that the Tenere 700 will only be offered in one color, Ceramic Ice. The Euro-spec model comes in three different colors.
The Tenere 700 features a 689cc parallel twin-cylinder engine. It comes with adjustable upside-down coil-spring forks, adjustable link-type rear suspension, a 452 lbs wet weight, and switchable ABS. It should be a true force to be reckoned with among its immediate competition. The bike will come to the U.S. in 2020. When it does, I’m sure there will be plenty of people excited to buy.
