It doesn't look comfortable, or luggage friendly. A legitimate luggage rack would help, plus a seat that is at least as comfortable as a KLR.

Hearing good things about this bike from European customers, so I called Allsport today to see if they had any news.  The Yamaha rep was in there yesterday and said the T7 will hopefully be available by Spring of 2020.

So I put down a deposit...

Side by side comparison of the Tenere 700 and the KTM 790 Adventure R.

I can't wait to take a look at it.

If Yamaha would have ever brought the Tenere 660 over here I would have probably bought that instead of the KLR.

Let us know when it'll be hitting the dealership.

Finally!

This weekend at the 2019 Long Beach International Motorcycle Show, Yamaha announced that the Tenere 700 will be available in the USA in early summer of 2020.  MSRP will be $10k, which many will complain about, but is very competitive when compared to any other mid-sized adventure bike.

Talked with a friend about this bike this morning. He is very interested. He races offroad and is thinking it will be a good transition to the street. I tend to agree and hope they get it to the market soon.
Lofty Goals Possibly May Be Reached
Modest Goals Possibly May Not.
