Rally of the 700 Ténéré is back. Introduced as an add-on in 2019, the term synonymous with epic (or less) hikes becomes more
consistent in 2020. The bike asserts itself by taking advantage of a specific color,
then take equipment almost similar to that of the previous year.

bike, Yamaha has returned to the trail spirit, with the joy of surveying the asphalt
or pebbles without asking questions. In Rally mode, we believe it
more. The equipment involves it, the presentations are not timid.
Rally 2020 completely eclipses the modern or neo-retro colors for

Paris-Dakar. The Speedblock design comes back to the sides. What to do

Ténéré strolling towards multiple victories, and the impressive prototypes
with 4-cylinder FZ engines driven by Jean-Claude Olivier himself.

a little more grumbling with the silent Akrapovic that Yam added to him.
More pleasant sound will accompany a gain in performance. The appendix lightens
the load of 2.3 kilos, allows up to 1.7 kW more in the curve of
power and also strengthens the torque with a little additional 2.3 Nm.
The seat plays
an important role in off-road. There is therefore here a specific saddle, flatter
and 20 mm higher to better dominate the driving, pass more easily
from sitting to standing. Protective pads installed at the
thighs improve driving exercise; we no longer control when
it slips less against the knees.
But with a saddle height of 895 mm, small riders will have to provide
some effort on boarding and at stops.
The turn signals
LEDs give a little extra fun touch. We will be more quiet about
everyday adventurer with TT handles giving more grip to the hands, and
the efforts to protect the Ténéré 700 Rally. A hoof much more
sturdy, larger in size and 4 mm thick takes place under the
engine. The radiator is protected with an aluminum grid while the chain is
helmeted with a laser-cut casing (also in aluminum).
Some will find that a tubular hoop securing the sides would have been
good luck: others will think that the hoof will do enough.
Ténéré 700 Rally arrives this summer for a steep price. 11500 balls

cheaper than a CB 500. But the claims are not the same.
