Tenere 700

Last stage of the 'World Raid' is underway in Europe, at the end of the video is a November 5th Livestream Event announcement.

Personally, I am hopeful it's the announcement of the bike going to retail!

It was the announcement, all right, the announcement that Yamaha has been teasing us like a school girl.

"Due to differing government regulatory standards and factory production line schedules, the all-new Ténéré 700 is scheduled to arrive at U.S. dealerships in the second half of 2020"
