The bike we never thought would make it to the United States is getting closer to actually landing on American soil, and today we have even more good news about the Yamaha Ténéré 700.
This is because Yamaha Motor USA has just shared with us pricing for the 2021 Yamaha Ténéré 700, and the Japanese brand has nailed things on the head with their $9,999 MSRP for this middleweight adventure-tourer.
Yes, you read that price tag correctly. For just a dollar under $10,000, you can get this much-hyped dual-sport motorcycle, which promises to be as potent on the road as it is in the dirt, with its Dakar-inspired design.
Long has this space been in the industry been overlooked, with ADV riders clamoring for competent off-road machines that don’t weigh 500 lbs. Brand like Yamaha have answered this call, along with the need for more affordable price points in the segment.
When we saw pricing for the European models, which will be arrive next year, we wrote the following: “we wanted to see the Yamaha under the $10,000 price barrier, but we still have to admit that the pricing so far for the T7 is looking strong.”
Well, Yamaha has answered our call, and done exactly that: priced the Yamaha Ténéré 700 under $10,000 MSRP. Bravo!
Available in the United States in “early summer” 2020, we still have quite a wait until the Yamaha Ténéré 700 is available in the USA, but at least we know how much many we need to save to put a T7 in our garage.
In case you can’t read between the lines, Yamaha just fired a big shot across the bow of its middleweight ADV competitors.
We imagine there will be a surge of ADV riders headed to Yamaha dealerships upon hearing this news today, and we can’t blame them.
The 2021 Yamaha Ténéré 700 will come to the USA in three color ways (shown below): Ceramic Ice color, Matte Black, and Intensity White.
