Yamaha Announces Accessory Packs for the Tenere 700

The Tenere 700 gets an array of accessories to suit customer riding styles.

Published on 05.13.2019

Tenere 700 Accessory Packs

While the U.S. still has a year-long wait until the Yamaha Tenere 700 hits dealer floors, European markets are in better luck as they will finally see the much-anticipated machine this September. In addition, potential customers will be able to demo the bike before its arrival starting in June.


Powered by a high-torque CP2 689cc engine and equipped with a compact chassis, the rally-bred Tenere 700 is claimed by Yamaha to be one of the most versatile motorcycles in the class. To offer riders a more customized experience, Yamaha has developed a choice of Tenere 700 Accessory Packs that give customers the freedom to create their very own motorcycle to suit their riding style and personal preferences – be it through the comfort in longer travel, or the desire for a more sporty adrenaline rush.

Explorer Pack

The Explorer Pack offers an enhanced long distance road riding experience together with high versatility off road. Rugged lockable aluminium side cases give 72 liters of secure carrying capacity for self-sufficiency in remote locations, while the center stand allows for stable parking and facilitates routing maintenance. The Explorer pack also includes a 33% thicker skid plate that covers a larger area than the standard item, and the tubular engine guards help to protect cases and body panels from accidental damage – and there’s also a mono seat rack that gives added carrying capacity.

  • Center Stand: allows stable parking, with strong and durable tubular construction
  • Skid Plate: 33% thicker and covers a larger area than standard skid plate
  • Mono Seat Rack: easily mounted with flat surface
  • Engine Guard: protects panels over and above the engine

Rally Pack

Aimed at Tenere 700 owners looking for some serious action in the dirt. The higher and flatter, 1-piece rally seat gives riders more freedom to shift their body weight to suit the terrain and gives an authentic rally look – while the lightweight Akrapovič slip-on muffler emits a throaty-rich exhaust note that underlines the bike’s rally-bred specification. The Rally Pack’s chain guard and chain guide ensure that the transmission runs true when pushed hard off road – and a radiator protector helps to prevent wayward stones and debris causing any problems. And to keep the Tenere 700 looking sharp there’s also a licence plate holder, LED blinkers and a protective tank pad.

  • Rally Seat: with narrow profile and high-grip sides
  • Akrapovic Exhaust: reduces weight and enhances sound
  • Chain Guide: protects and controls the chain from moving up and down
  • Chain Guard: laser-cut aluminium with a prominent Tenere 700 logo
  • Radiator Protector: protects your radiator from small stones and twigs
  • Number Plate Holder: for a cleaner look
  • LED Blinkers: Includes blinker speed regulating resistor. 9 LEDs per blinker
  • Tank Pad: protects the tank from your gear scratching it

Note: In addition to the Explorer and Rally Pack, Tenere 700 owners can also order accessories ‘à la carte’. Other accessories offered include heated grips, LED fog lamps, a lowering kit (18mm seat height reduction) and more.

Build the Ultimate Tenere 700

Yamaha’s MyGarage APP is the best way for Tenere 700 customers to build their dream adventure bike online with Yamaha Genuine Accessories. The app allows for a quick and easy way to view all configurations of the Tenere 700 from any angle, enabling potential customers to see which combination of colors and accessories works best for them. Once the personalized bike has been created, it can be saved and shared with friends. Once a final decision is made on the ideal specification, it can be sent to the local Yamaha dealer who will turn it into reality.

Yamaha Tenere 700 European Demo Tour

Starting in June and running through into July, the Tenere 700 Demo Tour rewards Yamaha Adventure bike fans by giving them the opportunity to evaluate the new bike for themselves and take a close look at all of the colors and both Accessory Pack options, before arrival of the Tenere 700 in the market.

Yamaha’s team of expert guide riders and technicians will start their European Demo Tour, and over the following weeks will visit Germany, Italy, Spain, France, Switzerland, The Netherlands, Belgium and the UK.

  1. Will the USA get a demo tour and special pricing for early orders too? Since it won’t be long before people start riding this thing we’ll finally get some impressions from people other than test riders. Hope it’s very good after waiting soooo long.

    • Hopefully we’ll see the same deal and get a demo tour ahead of its arrival on this side of the ocean. We’ll sure be letting our readers know if we hear anything from Yamaha!

  2. How much does the accessory pack jack up the MSRP ? Knowing how Yamaha prices accessories, once loaded out the door, this bike will eat up 20K Canadian Loonies and likely swing interested buyers back to considering KTM or AT Honda !

    • Have you seen the KTM 790 in person? It looks way worse in person than it does in pictures. On paper the specs for the KTM look great but aesthetically its a real stinker, in my opinion of course.

    • In looking at some UK sites, the USD equivalent to what they are charging for the Explorer Pack in GBP is around $2500.00, putting you at just under $3,400.00 CDN

    • I agree!! I can only guess how many people have left the Yamaha fold over this long and protracted model release.

  3. This brilliant bike is gonna do really well, it’s basically a lighter Africa Twin, with the legendary reliability of these Japanese machines … perfect for world travel, commuting, the whole lot … in my opinion of course … but I’m still a very happy Africa Twin owner.

    • While it may be lighter weight wise it is also about 20 horse lighter. Not sure how well the upper part of the crash bars will protect…look kind of springy. I noticed that the lower fairing bolt is directly behind a horizontal bar on both sides…great for maintenance. The left side of the skid plate (Explorer Pack) has a nice flair to protect the stator cover but I sure wouldn’t want any part of me between the ground and it’s edge. The lower accessory light protectors look weird but might come in handy when she naps. How about tubeless????

  4. 1.Fuel tank capacity we need 24 to 30 litres
    2. Rider seat hight must be can adjustable 810 to 860 mm.
    3. Ground clearance must be can adjustable 220 to 270 mm.
