Pre-production models to do the rounds ahead of official launch
Yamaha Motor Australia have announced three of the new Tenere 700 motorcycles have arrived in Australia and will embark on a travelling roadshow in July before the model goes on sale towards the end of 2019.
The all-new twin cylinder adventure bike will appear in venues across Australia and New Zealand so that riders can get up close and personal with the new lightweight ADV model.
The three units will be presented in three different guises – one accessorised with an Australian off-road theme, one in full touring mode with hard luggage and low seat option; while the third unit will be standard. All three colour options will be represented.
The travelling road show will be headlined by Yamaha legend, keen Tenere rider and four times Mister Motocross, Stephen Gall. Special guests include Yamaha’s Australian Dakar Rally – and prototype Tenere – rider Rodney Faggotter. Tenere Tragic organiser Andrew Clubb and Ride ADV head honcho Greg Yager will also be on hand to discuss all things Tenere.
