The Tenere 700 receives a major upgrade with a five-inch TFT instrument cluster, replacing the previous LCD display, offering two view modes - Street and Explore - to provide riders with more comprehensive data.
The new TFT instrument cluster also features Bluetooth connectivity, allowing riders to connect their phones via the Yamaha MyRide app to receive notifications on the dashboard and track various ride data.
Yamaha equips the 2024 Tenere 700 with three ABS modes - Full ON, Front wheel ON rear wheel OFF, and Full OFF - providing greater control and safety options for both novice and experienced riders.
The adventure bike retains its robust 690cc twin-cylinder engine, generating 72 horsepower and 49 pound-feet of torque, ensuring ample power for off-road adventures.
The motocross-like double-cradle chassis, paired with KYB forks with 8.3-inch travel and a remote-adjustable monoshock with 7.9-inch travel, ensures a comfortable and capable off-road riding experience.
The braking system remains consistent with two 282 mm rotors in the front and a 245 mm rotor at the rear, while the wheels feature 21-inch front and 18-inch rear spokes.
Despite the updates, Yamaha has kept the price increase minimal, with the 2024 Tenere 700 costing only $300 more than its predecessor, making it a compelling value-for-money choice.
With the slight price bump, the Tenere 700 comes closer in price to its rivals, such as the Suzuki V-Strom 800DE and Aprilia Tuareg 660, both of which offer additional features and power.
As riders consider their options, they must weigh the updates and pricing against the competition to decide if the Tenere 700 remains their preferred adventure bike.
