All new 2022 YAMAHA TENERE 700 WORLD RAID Optimized for the extremely rough.

The Ténéré 700 has established itself on the market as a bestseller. However, many customers want even more off-road capability. Yamaha corresponds to that with the World Raid version. However, this cannot save all the features of the EICMA study into series production.

Because Ténéré buyers obviously not only take asphalt and dirt roads under their wheels, but often also head for more difficult terrain, Yamaha presented a Ténéré 700 Raid prototype at the EICMA 2021 in Milan. Now follows the corresponding series variant, which the Japanese will bring to dealerships at the end of May 2022 under the name Yamaha Ténéré 700 World Raid.

Professionals helped develop
Until now, if you wanted to take your Ténéré to difficult terrain or a trip to the desert, you had to upgrade your machine yourself. Yamaha doesn't want to leave this part of the cake to the accessories industry in the future, but instead wants to earn money from its customers' thirst for adventure. The machine presented in Milan was developed by Yamaha in Europe with the collaboration of experienced off-road riders Alessandro Botturi and Pol Tarrés. The goal was to exploit the full raid potential of the Ténéré 700. That's why the two off-road pros tested the prototype extensively in the Moroccan desert. The long-distance adventure bike now presented stays close to the Milan study.

One of the features of the Ténéré 700 World Raid is the now split fuel tank, which stores a total of 23 liters of fuel and thus guarantees a range of up to 500 kilometers. The double-sided layout brings two tank filler necks. Thanks to the deep pockets and the low-mounted fuel pump, the enduro's center of gravity should not deteriorate compared to the normal version with only 16 liters in the tank. In addition, the new tank configuration is flatter and offers the pilot even more freedom of movement on the two-part bench, which is 890 millimeters high. The rear seat roll can be easily removed and replaced with a luggage rack.

In the cockpit, a new five-inch TFT display with networking option and multiple configurable displays provides information. A roadbook look for the navigation can also be set. Mobile end devices can be adapted via a USB-A connection. Yamaha retuned the ABS for the World Raid. There are three modes to choose from, whereby the ABS can only be switched off on the rear wheel or switched off completely.

Yamaha counteracts off-road adventures with a new, fully adjustable 43 mm KYB-USD fork with 230 millimeters of travel (+ 20 mm compared to the series). The EICMA prototype came with a 48 KYB-USD fork with 270 millimeters of travel and CNC-milled bridges. A new and fully adjustable spring strut with expansion tank and newly designed deflection is now also working on the hindquarters. Here the spring travel is 220 millimeters (also + 20 mm). Another look at the prototype: it still offered 260 millimeters. The standard model has a steering damper mounted transversely behind the steering head.

A new air filter box with a forward-facing intake snorkel feeds the tried-and-tested two-cylinder, which is fixed with a new die-cast aluminum engine mount. A 15 millimeter higher screen provides more protection for the driver. Also on board as standard are easily removable side wind deflectors and LED indicators. The radiator panels and the interior paneling in the cockpit area are made of robust fiberglass composite material. Enlarged footrests with removable rubber pads improve stability. A new, three-piece aluminum armor protects the engine from all obstacles that the 250 millimeters of ground clearance cannot keep away from it. A newly shaped radiator grille is said to improve cooling performance and better protect the radiator.

What didn't make it from the prototype to the ready-to-drive Ténéré 700 World Raid series model, which weighs 220 kilograms, was the complete Akrapovic exhaust made of titanium, the newly tuned engine management system from Yamaha Racing, and the sprocket that was enlarged from 46 to 48 teeth. the larger water cooler with additional fans, the new oil cooler and the Rekluse clutch as well as the enlarged brake system with 300 mm discs at the front and a 267 mm disc at the rear.

The new Ténéré 700 World Raid will be available in dealerships from the end of May. It is then available in the two color options Icon Blue and Midnight Black. Yamaha is asking for a price of 12,499 euros, plus 375 euros for additional costs.
