TRANS TASMAN TÉNÉRÉ TOUR – See the new Tenere in the flesh! | News

Yamaha Motor Australia has announced three Ténéré 700 display units have arrived down under and will embark on a travelling roadshow in July before the model goes on sale towards the end of the year.

The all-new twin cylinder adventure bike will appear in venues across Australia and New Zealand so that potential customers and dealers 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 and the third unit will be standard. All three colour options will be on display.

The travelling road show will be headlined by Yamaha legend, keen Ténéré rider and four times Mister Motocross, Stephen Gall. Special guests include Yamaha’s Australian Dakar Rally – and prototype Ténéré – rider Rodney Faggotter. Ténéré Tragic organiser Andrew Clubb and Ride ADV head honcho Greg Yager will also be on hand to discuss all things Ténéré.

“This will be a great opportunity for customers to get up close and personal with the new Ténéré 700 and learn more about it. Each event will feature a full media type presentation with contributions and insights from our special guests,” explains Yamaha Motor Australia Marketing Manager Sean Goldhawk.

“Customer will also be able to register their interest in the new model and the related accessories as well as some exciting new adventure rides that we are planning for new Ténéré 700 owners,” Goldhawk.

Select one of these free events near you and register your interest to attend – Yamaha Motor Australia will contact you to confirm your registration.

Yamaha makes it clear that due to the pre-production status of these units, they are not able to be test ridden, but it’s a great opportunity to eye-ball the highly-anticipated bike.
