The introduction of Yamaha’s Ténéré 700 altered the game in the inexpensive middleweight adventure cycle sector. The Yamaha Ténéré 700 definitely gave the orange beast a run for its money in space before being inhabited and dominated by the KTM 790 Adventure.
Although it lacked some of the features found on the KTM, the Ténéré 700 was far less expensive and within the price range of the great majority of riders.
Yamaha has strengthened the Ténéré 700 even more for the 2022 model year. The tuning fork business has introduced an improved version dubbed the World Raid on the European market.
The Ténéré 700 World Raid is Yamaha’s newest long-distance adventure touring motorbike. The intention is to improve your riding experience and introduce you to roads and no roads you’ve ever seen before.
More fuel storage
High capacity dual gasoline tanks provide the bike a total fuel capacity of 23 liters, one of the bike’s distinguishing features. It now has upgraded long-travel suspension, which gives you confidence no matter how nasty the terrain is.
Thanks to its massive twin fuel tanks, the Ténéré 700 World Raid ranges up to 500 kilometers on a full gas tank. This offers you the courage to take the road less traveled without worrying about running out of gas in the midst of nowhere.
The World Raid also has new technological components, such as a new five-inch TFT full-color display. Bluetooth smartphone connection is now a feature of the system. It allows you to stay connected to the world around you no matter where you travel.
Build and design
The ergonomics of the 2022 Yamaha Ténéré 700 World Raid are to be more off-road focussed. It has a two-piece flat rally saddle and tall and wide handlebars with plenty of leverage. It has three modes of customizable ABS. These modes allow you to change your preferences based on the train.
Yamaha modified front forks to 43 mm KYB units with 230 mm suspension travel. A longer aluminum piggyback unit provides 220 mm of movement at the rear. The Ténéré 700 World Raid also has a sophisticated Ohlins adjustable steering damper.
Last but not least, the 2022 Yamaha Ténéré 700 World Raid retains the powerful CP2 Crossplane parallel-twin engine. With a new airbox, its engine is Euro 5-compliant. It produces roughly 75 horsepower, making it a punchy and powerful bike both on and off the road. All these enhanced benefits, of course, come at a cost.
The Yamaha Ténéré 700 World Raid will cost 11,600 Euros, or USD 13,108. As you know, determining the costs of models in different areas is difficult. We’ll have to wait and see whether Yamaha will offer the World Raid in the United States very soon.
