Yamaha Announces Tenere 700 Early Order Price and Arrival Dates

Be among the first owners of the all-new Yamaha Tenere 700 at a discount!

Published on 02.28.2019

Back in November, we learned the highly-anticipated Tenere 700 would become available as a 2019 model (in Europe only) with just a rough delivery date and no pricing. Today Yamaha Motor Europe has more news about their all-new adventure bike — confirming details about pricing, priority ordering and delivery dates. After a long, drawn-out wait, Christmas is almost here for fans of the rally bike-inspired machine.

Be Among the First Tenere 700 Owners

On March 27th 2019 at 14:00 CET, Yamaha will launch an Online Ordering System for Europe. The first deliveries of the Tenere 700 planned in July of 2019 will be allocated to customers who order online on a first-come first-served basis. Those who order online will also receive a special discounted price of €9,299 (£8399) for the standard model. This price is exclusively for online orders and applies until the online system closes on July 31st 2019.

The Online Ordering System will enable customers to confirm their order for a variety of Tenere 700 options, which will be available in the full power specification and in a restricted 47 horsepower (35kW) version. Both versions will be available in three colors: Ceramic Ice, Competition White or Power Black.

After supplying the initial batch of online orders, Yamaha will commence delivery of the Tenere 700 to dealerships across Europe from September 2019 at the standard price of €9,699 (£8699).

U.S. Availability

No information about an early ordering system has been given for the U.S. at this time. Due to differing government regulatory standards and factory production line schedules, the Tenere 700 is scheduled to arrive at U.S. dealerships a year later in the second half of 2020. And while Europe receives three color options, so far, it seems Ceramic Ice will be the only color available for the U.S. market.

  1. 452 lbs makes a nice boat anchor. Way too heavy! 1 cylinder, 750cc 5 valves 310 lbs or less! Would sell like hot cakes..try more aluminum (frame- XR650R=24lbs bare!) and more titanium. Worth the cost and weight reduction. Practically lived on TT500 XT500 XT550 XT600 XR500R XR600R XR650R please Yamaha! Light bike, big motor, big brakes!!

  2. I am totally hooked on thumpers, one cylinder bikes for me only. But this piece I will take for a test ride as soon as it is available in Germany.
    Only ugly thing: The color design of all three is ugly.

    • Svendura Paint is cheap the sky is the limit go colour your world hahaha
      It’s the heart (aka engine) of this machine that win yours 🙂
      To test ride or even touch one you are very fortunate !

  3. I will still wait for the shootout against the KTM 790 in the fall/winter. Perhaps at $3000ish less than the KTM and functionally turning out to be an excellent bike, still may opt for this one. That KTM is awful tempting though but at 450 lbs. for either, sure will miss the 340 lb. of my lightened DR650.

  4. I like you Yammy, but this is a anticlamactic yawner. I would rather order an AJP PR 7 for just as much bike and 100lbs less weight – and get it now. disclosure I have no affiliation with either company…

  5. A few kilos lighter than my xtz 750 but comes with more oomph!
    If Yamaha had of Intro’d this online deal in North America six months ago there wouldn’t be any extra units left for the European market! They missed their calling on this one – most yami enthusiasts have moved on! At age 64 patience is just not found in hospitals but in this case one has to call a spade a spade and move on. Saddle up on a KTM 790 and ride off into the BC outback sunset.
    PS – Yamaha you had better sharpen up that pencil after your European online pricing debut ! The millennials have the money to go play but they want do it tomorrow not in 562 tomorrows!

  6. Yamaha’s 700 has been the most botched new vehicle development we’ve seen in decades. By the time it’s finally out most interested riders will have long since bought something else and ridden off.

  7. I’m snaggin one up soon as they come to lndiana , with ll other bikes in the garage l don’t mind waiting on the 700 but I’d like to see a hyd clutch & the 3 different color options available to the U.S. model plus l don’t care what the bike weighs as l just see good times riding this bike .

    • If Trump continues to play his “ Game of Tariffs “ in order to “Make America Great Again” it might just throw a bucket or barrel of water on that flame of Tenere Flame within.
      Just sit back and let the boys in Europe ride the bugs out – hope for some serious reviews by owner/riders and let your piggy bank savings grab some interest so you can afford the OEM accessory package that Yamaha will try to flog.
      If Yamaha can take the FJ09 then rename it Tracer and keep the price under 10kUS then add a touring package consisting of a couple of ugly side cases then bump up the price 2500US it doesn’t take a rocket scientist on Marketing tactics to figure out their end game plan.

      • BCTenerizer, you forgot reworked fully adjustable suspension, R1 TFT dash, quick shifter, heated grips, new seat and cruise control. Ooops!
