2021 Yamaha Tenere 700 is Finally Arriving in The U.S.

The much-anticipated Yamaha Tenere 700 is finally coming to America!

Published on 05.22.2020

It’s been a long time coming, but the day when the Yamaha Ténéré 700 finally arrives in the USA is upon us. Europe has had the pleasure of riding the T7 for about a year now, while we here in the States have been stuck waiting and dreaming about the amazing rides this rally-inspired Adventure Bike might take us on.

Yamaha has confirmed today that the 2021 Ténéré 700 will arrive in the U.S. market beginning the first week of June. Earlier this year, Yamaha connected with customers interested in making the first Ténéré 700 purchases through the company’s website and dealer network, and orders started taking place today.

While the first shipment of Ténéré 700 motorcycles are expected to sell out, additional inventory will be arriving at authorized Yamaha dealerships for purchase later this summer and fall. In addition to the previously announced Ceramic Ice Color, Matte Black and Intensity White color schemes will also be offered in the US. All carrying an MSRP of $9,999 USD.


Customers who ordered their Ténéré 700 motorcycles today were also given the opportunity to purchase one of two accessory packs: The Rally Pack features a skid plate, main stand, engine guard, radiator protector, chain guide, mono-seat rack and tank pad. The Tour Pack features a main stand, engine guard, side case stays and a set of side cases with locks. All accessories for the 2021 Ténéré 700 can be found at

Yamaha is also offering home delivery service during the COVID-19 crisis with their ‘Deliver your Ride’ program. Simply select a local dealer through the Yamaha website and they will work with you to coordinate the sale and delivery of your Ténéré 700 to your door, safely and conveniently.

One advantage for the US is that lots of companies have started to make aftermarket bit’s for it
Perfect fairings make a complete Carbon Fibre panel kit Tractive suspension ( Resselers Touratech and Rally Raid) already have a suspension kit that increases the travel by 30mm

How many T700’s are coming in the first wave ?

May 24, 2020 4:24 am

3 years ago I targeted the T7 to be my DR650 replacement. Seemed perfect, much better street bike yet just as good off road as the DR. Would have had my name on one but for the KTM 790 Adventure R that came here first. Yamaha made me spend $3,600 more for the KTM, glad they did!… I’d still like to ride one though as it is a very good bike.
