Is the Yamaha Ténéré 700 Really So Special?

Too portly, too big, too gimmicky, too…well, everything. Adventure bikes have gotten out of hand. Yamaha wants to change that by offering something just right - nothing more, nothing less.

  • Still a little too fat i think for the marketing they did for it and what a lot of people want. It and it's evil twin the 790 are the new leaders of the segment but myself and others were hoping for a reliable 690 with less vibes not a better designed 800gs.

  • This new parallel twin was a much needed upgrade compared with the XT660 Rotax but as ever with Yamaha in recent years the motor architecture does not always seem to fit the purpose, your video seems to address some of the critics. The Palm for the most deceptive marketing tool comes to KTM though and it 790 "Adventure" model. Clearly the word adventure has lost its meaning. I quote KTM "Whether it's in the desert, on remote mountain trails or a transcontinental crossing, this sporty travel bike is built with KTM's offroad genes and is ready for endless miles of travel exploration" eur no it does not, it is a 790cc moped that does not even remotely pretend to be a trail. I have discovered Italian brand SWM recently and their Superdual X, of course it is unknown and Italian so you may spend more time at the mechanic than on the road.

  • I just watched a Video comparing the KTM-800 to the Yamaha T-7 .. They favored the KTM .. better off road in all aspects.. Yamaha more plush ride if your not pushing hard and more stable on road.. $3,000.00 less money and will run on gasoline that costs 60 cents per gallon less than the Premium the KTM needs.. I so love the KTM gas tank with low Center of Gravity .. I wish they had the same KTM style gas tank on or avialable for the Yamaha ..

  • It’s a great bike for sure. I just feel like for me personally an ADV bike needs to be for touring as well. The T7 wouldn’t be a great tourer. To me it’s merely a fat dirt bike and if that type of riding is what you’re after then a dirt bike is a better option.

  • 5 months ago i commented in this video "bike looks dumb, ill stick with my wr250r". then i watched it again while taking a shit and kinda got bit. last tuesday a blue one popped up in oklahoma and i contradicted myself and bought one. the t7 performs BETTER offroad than my wr250r did. It just trucks using momentum and anti squat. the wr gets jostled and tossed around by every imperfection, as all light dual sport bikes do. thing is, the t7 is like a goldwing on the highway compared to a wr. last 2 days in a row ive ridden 3-4 hours in one go, long highway rides to some dirt areas. came home almost refreshed....instead of feeling like i kicked my own ass. ryan made me eat crow

  • Sorry yammi!! But they only made the XT550 from 1982. So it was the XT500. I should know since i have 3 of them. Plus also the first true adventure bike, thats why the frenchman could go from Paris to Dakar with it. Same low end torque as the t700 and wonderfull to cruze. I chalange you to restore one in america and try it!!

  • The reason these are amazing is because he doesn't tell us boring facts about the dimensions, the engine, the brakes, stuff we can hear if we go to a dealership, and which frankly, no one outside of competition racing really gives a fuck about. He tells us how it feels, what is good about it, and what is bad about it. Compliments it, bashes it, and draws a conclusion. This is what we need.

  • About half a year later, you can find a ton of KTM 790 Adventure's second hand here in Belgium. Eventhough the Tenere outsold it by a ratio of about 3:1 (3 Tenere's for 1 790) it's still very hard to find a second hand T700...

  • So, if Yamaha set out to achieve something from a marketing perspective which would make Americans in particular perceive the bike differently than all other mid range bikes and make you wish you didn't have a larger bike, this would had to have been the goal here. Stability would be the key word and whether you are new to dirt or riding as well as an advanced rider, who wouldn't want a larger bike that was more stable than anything else on the market? That is the point of the T7. Yamaha is an engineering company first, bikes second.

  • Great video and review, as always. Thanks for the details. Love the explanation of the swing arm and anti squat. I’m really curious what you think of the new Triumph Tiger 900 Rally Pro. I’ve always loved twins but am about to upgrade from my Vstrom for a slightly more dirt oriented touring bike. Their triple’s “T Plane” claims to act more like a twin which sounds attractive. There’s a ton of other upgrades and new design features. I think worthy of a proper FortNine review. Would love to see you guys do one. Thanks for all the great content! Cheers.
