The Yamaha Tenere 700 needs no introduction. It has been showing off its capabilities for a few years now. But it seems that Yamaha was not done yet because the Japanese two-wheeler giant has released a new version of its middleweight ADV which is being said to be the most “Extreme” variant of the Tenere 700.

Called the Tenere 700 Extreme, the latest model has been designed for a specific set of riders who are very much into motocross and enduro riding. The motorcycle comes with an even taller seat height of 910 mm. Yamaha has also revised the suspension setup offering 20 mm of more travel at both ends. In fact, the front forks get a Kashima coating for reduced friction and increased durability. The ground clearance has also been raised to 260 mm.


Some of the other components that are exclusive to the Tenere 700 Extreme include large titanium footpegs with 35% more surface area, aluminum radiator protector and a flat one-piece rally saddle. There’s also a tall enduro front fender for a more rally-ready look.


Powering the Tenere 700 Extreme is Yamaha’s same 689cc parallel-twin CP2 engine with a 270-deg crankshaft.
