Ténéré 700 World Raid:
Tested to the extreme The first sign that Yamaha was developing a new Adventure bike came with the launch of the T7 concept in 2016. Displayed at motorcycle shows all over the world, it created immense interest and gave riders a taste of what was to come - and in 2017 Yamaha introduced the Ténéré 700 World Raid prototype that was one step closer to the final production specification. Since 2017 the Ténéré 700 World Raid prototype has undergone an intensive world tour in various key locations all over the globe, and during this development phase the bike has been subjected to the most extreme testing in hostile terrain and severe climatic conditions. Piloted by a team of professional riders including multi Dakar winner Stéphane Peterhansel and Official Yamalube Yamaha Rally Team riders such as Adrien van Beveren and Rodney Faggoter, the World Raid prototype has been pushed to its limits across the globe, from Australia's unforgiving outback through to the brutal South American deserts. At the same time as putting thousands of hours on the development bikes, the Ténéré 700 World Raid programme has also showcased the design to many hundreds of local riders who have been invited to give Yamaha their valuable input and help shape the final production model.
