A prototype of the new-generation Yamaha Tenere 700 has been spied on test for the first time, albeit in Europe. While the test mule is wrapped in camouflage, some changes are visible. As part of the generational revamp, the new motorcycle spotted seems to feature a revised headlamp with new air intakes below it. Moreover, the vehicle benefits from an all-new linkage-type rear suspension, likely to offer more progression and better wheel travel. However, the front suspension remains the same as the existing version.

It also remains to be seen whether the new Tenere 700 will offer a new saddle. No changes are expected to be made to a 689cc, parallel-twin, CP2 engine. In the existing model, this liquid-cooled engine makes 73bhp and 68Nm of peak torque. A 6-speed gearbox is currently on offer.
