Yamaha announces Ténéré 700 pricing

Yamaha Ténéré 700 pricing

Yamaha has announced very competitive pricing for its much-anticipated Ténéré 700 adventure motorcycle arriving in Australia in December.

And we were right in our pricing tip earlier today that it would cost about $16,500 ride-away.

The price is actually $15,500 plus on-road costs which should bring it up to our tipped ride-away price.

Our pricing tip was based on the recently announced UK price of £8699 which is 27% less than the UK price of the KTM 790 Adventure at £11,999.

In Australia, the KTM 790 Adventure and Adventure R will arrive in June 2019 at $21,195 ride away and an extra $1500 for the R model at $22,695.

Pricing tip spot-on!

Similarly, Yamaha pricing is about 22% less than the KTM. The previous model XTZ660 Ténéré cost $13,999.

Prices of other mid-sized adventure models include:

  • BMW F 850 GS from $17,990 (+ORC);
  • Ducati Multistrada 950 from $18,790 (+ORC);
  • Kawasaki Versys 650 from $10,499 (+ORC);
  • Kawasaki Versys 1000 from $15,999 (+ORC);
  • Suzuki V-Strom 650 from $10,290 (ride-away);
  • Suzuki V-Strom 1000 from $15,490 (ride-away);
  • Triumph Tiger 800 from $18,550.

Yamaha Motor Australia says the dual sport 689cc parallel twin will arrive in December in a choice of Ceramic Ice, Competition White and Power Black.

Don’t feel too bad about the late delivery of the Ténéré in Australia as it will not arrive in the US until the second half of 2020.
