Yesterday, November 1, the Japanese company presented the new Tenere 700 and Tenere 700 Rally Edition with a few modest, but useful updates.
In the 2023 model year, models will receive a new five-inch two-color TFT display on the front. Riders can choose the visualization among different variations.
The motorcycles are equipped with the ability to connect to a smartphone via the Yamaha Communications Control Unit (CCU). Using the completely free Yamaha MyRIDE app, riders can link a smartphone to their motorcycle, which allows them to see phone notifications on their bike’s display.
Riders who like to explore off-road on their Tenere 700 and 700 Rally Editions will be happy to know that the 2023 motorcycles will receive a new, improved ABS system. Instead of just offering riders a choice of ABS on or off settings, as was the case in the previous version, Variation 2023 offers three modes, as was previously the case in the World Raid edition.
Both motorcycles come pre-assembled for the Yamaha accessory quick shifter straight from the factory in 2023. Other small but important updates include a redesigned front brake lever, which has become more durable and more resistant to damage in the event of an accident. The motorcycles also received new USB connectors to replace the old 12 V.
“The cost and availability will vary and depend on the region across Europe.”
