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.

  • Another great video. And I love that you concentrate on real-world benefits, and aren't afraid to be contrary to this month's conventional wisdom about which bike journalists have to love (cough-KTM-cough!). Keep it up.

  • High quality production values and clever scriptwriting! I wanted the review to go on, which is rare with a YT video. Bravo.

  • Ryan has that quirky Tarantino look which is ironic as I believe the quality, content, wit and skill of these videos is up there with the big screen genius. I kinda think DE-visions is a stepping stone for FortNine so make the most of it guys.

  • I have a MT 07 2014 and hate how the distance between the engine and the ground is so small (the only thing I hate about mu bike). I want this bike, but here in colombia, yamaha doesn't sell it.

  • If it it wasn't so fugly in comparison, and becauses he really likes the motorn & it's rep, I'm gleaning he's ok with KTM 790. But the T7 is so much better looking and the 790 motor, no real rep yet.

  • Favorite youtube channel, just want to say that I dont really think this bike can do anymore than my dr650 that I have in supermoto form. Plus I get the added street performance and better turn-in. Would love to try it out though. Great bike but I'd have to ride it for my opinion to change. I would have definetly made it up that hill that you were meer inches from climbing although , i think that was a cleverly planned drop at the top. It's all about the rider folks. Buying this bike wont make you any better than any other bike without the shnazzy engine or drivetrain figuration.

  • Why would a higher countershaft sharpen the swing arm angle? Makes no sense. What you're demonstrating is the line between the rear axle, and instant center (pivot point for the swing arm). A lower countershaft would create more anti-squat, because the chain tension would create more torque between the rear axle, and swing arm pivot.

    • Yamaha sells a low seat option, and there are suspension-lowering linkages available as well. Of course you're sacrificing some performance there. ~RF9

  • Watching FT vids is becoming harder and harder. Is a decision that has to take some consideration. Do i need this kind of commitment right now? do I have the time? attention span? brain power? You already know you have to hit the like button, read a few comments and perhaps leave one yourself praising the quality of the vid. And then think about everything you just learned in a 8 min vid.
