Yamaha XTZ690 for Sale at Blacktown Yamaha in Kings Park, NSW | Specifications and Review Information

Ténéré 700- a lightweight no compromise adventure bike with one of the highest specifications in its class, and one of the most exciting and significant new ADV models to be launched for many years.

Equipped with the successful CP2 689cc parallel-twin engine and a completely new chassis, the Ténéré 700 700 is designed to deliver class-leading handling and agility in the dirt - combined with high-speed long-distance performance on the road - making it extremely capable in Australian conditions.

689CC 4-STROKE CP2 ENGINE

689CC 4-STROKE CP2 ENGINE

Yamaha has revolutionised the motorcycle world with the development of the crossplane philosophy engines that power a range of the company's best-selling models, and the new Ténéré 700 is equipped with the highly respected 689cc parallel-twin engine. The key characteristic of this compact CP2 engine is its strong and linear torque output that gives instant throttle response together with outstanding acceleration - attributes that make it a capable and versatile performer on and off the road. Producing maximum torque at 6500rpm, this engine offers the ideal balance of performance and controllability - and with its excellent fuel economy, it contributes towards the Ténéré 700's ability to cover long distances between fuel stops.

LIGHTWEIGHT DOUBLE CRADLE FRAME

LIGHTWEIGHT DOUBLE CRADLE FRAME

During the development of the Ténéré 700 one of the key goals was to achieve a slim, agile and light feeling chassis that would be equally suited to both road and off-road riding. To satisfy these requirements Yamaha's designers have developed an all-new lightweight double cradle tubular steel frame that combines a low weight with immense strength, making it ideally suited a variety of riding conditions. Featuring a compact 1590mm wheelbase and a slim body, this rugged chassis delivers responsive handling characteristics, and with 240mm of ground clearance, the Ténéré 700 is designed to keep its rider out of trouble over the roughest terrain.

SLIM COMPACT BODY

SLIM COMPACT BODY

The ability to shift your body weight forwards and rearwards to suit the terrain ahead is crucial when you want to maintain full control in off-road riding situations, and so the Ténéré 700 is equipped with a flat 880mm high seat and slim body that allows maximum rider agility. The compact bodywork and narrow fuel tank also enable you to grip the tank with your knees whether sitting or standing, giving added confidence and control in every situation.

RALLY-BRED FACE

RALLY-BRED FACE

The new Ténéré 700 is equipped with a distinctive looking headlight assembly that is a direct spin-off from Yamaha's latest factory rally bikes and the Ténéré 7 concept machine. A total of four LED headlights project powerful beams of light that can light up the darkest wilderness. Stacked in a 2 + 2 layout and protected by a clear nacelle - and with two LED position lights at the base - this strong face gives a purposeful look that matches this new adventure bike's imposing character.

ADJUSTABLE USD FORKS

ADJUSTABLE USD FORKS

When you're riding in the dirt you need the best possible suspension systems, and the Ténéré 700's long travel forks are undeniable evidence that this is a serious adventure bike with class-leading off-road capabilities. The flex resistant 43mm forks stay in shape over the most extreme terrain to give precision steering and smooth suspension action - and with 210mm of suspension travel, this high specification front end enables you to attack the most challenging off-road terrain with confidence. Offering full damping adjustment, these rally-specification front forks ensure high levels of comfort with lightweight handling performance when you're on the road, making the Ténéré 700 one of the most capable and enjoyable long-distance tourers.

REMOTELY ADJUSTABLE REAR SHOCK

REMOTELY ADJUSTABLE REAR SHOCK

The Ténéré 700 is equipped with a rally-bred link-type rear suspension system that gives smooth and progressive action for maximum riding comfort and enhanced levels of control. Featuring a lightweight aluminum swingarm for low unsprung weight, this high specification rear end offers 200mm of travel which, like the front suspension system, is designed to be able to handle the most severe off-road riding conditions as well as giving a comfortable ride on the road. Another significant feature is the remote adjuster that lets you fine-tune the preload settings while you're on the go, making it quick and easy to dial in the shock to suit the riding conditions.

RALLY STYLE COCKPIT

RALLY STYLE COCKPIT

Sitting on the new Ténéré 700 with the rally-bred cockpit in front of you, you'll absorb the pure Dakar character of this new generation adventure bike and be inspired to get out there and explore. The compact rally screen and nose fairing give you excellent protection from the wind while maintaining the slim and lightweight character of the bike, and the competition type tapered handlebars give a relaxed riding position whether you're seated or standing.

FRONT AND REAR SPOKED WHEELS

FRONT AND REAR SPOKED WHEELS

Just like the high specification front and rear suspension, the spoked wheels clearly demonstrate that this bike is built for serious off-road riding. With their ability to efficiently absorb the continuous impacts experienced when riding in rough terrain, these lightweight wheels work with the long travel suspension to give you optimum handling performance and control. Pirelli Scorpion Rally STR tyres are fitted as original equipment, and because the Ténéré 700 features a competition type 21-inch front wheel/18-inch rear wheel combination, you have the possibility to fit a wide choice of tyres to suit your own requirements - ranging from a pure enduro pattern for predominantly off-road use, through to dual sport pattern tyres for year-round on/off-road versatility.

SLIM LONG-RANGE FUEL TANK

SLIM LONG-RANGE FUEL TANK

Throughout the development of this new generation adventure bike, Yamaha's key goal was to deliver class-leading off-road performance together with outstanding road abilities and offer a genuine long-range potential. The slim design of the fuel tank belies its 16-litre capacity, and its narrow rear section offers plenty of rider mobility and excellent knee grip. Whether you're sitting down or standing up, the compact dimensions of this long-range fuel tank enable you to shift your weight around effortlessly - and thanks to the excellent economy of the 2-cylinder engine, 16-litres of fuel will give a potential riding range of over 350km which gives the new Ténéré 700 a high level of year-round all-terrain versatility.

COMPACT RALLY STYLE MULTI-FUNCTION INSTRUMENTS

COMPACT RALLY STYLE MULTI-FUNCTION INSTRUMENTS

Located centrally behind the screen for great visibility, this lightweight instrument panel displays a wide range of information that can be absorbed without having to take your eyes off the road or track. The multi-function LCD display features comprehensive information including gear position, fuel level, two trip meters and estimated fuel range, as well as average and instant fuel consumption and more. The cockpit is designed to accommodate the fitment of aftermarket navigation devices, enabling you to add extra equipment to suit your own requirements, including GPS, road book readers and smartphones.

SWITCHABLE ABS FOR EASY ADJUSTMENTS

SWITCHABLE ABS FOR EASY ADJUSTMENTS

The braking system consists of dual 282mm wave front discs and a 245mm wave rear disc that gives high levels of stopping power with plenty of feel at all speeds on the highway or in the dirt. When you're riding off road you have the option to temporarily disable the ABS whenever required by activating the kill switch while stationary. With the ABS turned off you can take full manual control, and in particular you can choose to lock the rear wheel deliberately in certain situations - such as very tight turns or on steep descents.

GOOD RIDE PROTECTION

GOOD RIDE PROTECTION

On long journeys, the screen and front cowl give good protection from the wind and weather, and because of the bike's slim and compact body you are able to tuck in tightly to the chassis and keep out of the main airflow. As well deflecting wind and rain, the tough plastic handguards also help to prevent damage from rocks and stones kicked up by vehicles in front of you, and they offer added protection from branches and foliage when you're in the wilderness. And if you do take a tumble in the dirt, they help to protect the levers and throttle from accidental damage.
