2023 Yamaha Ténéré 700 & Ténéré 700 Rally Edition

Image

Instrument upgrades, smartphone connectivity and ABS refinements

Since its launch in 2019, the Ténéré 700 has achieved outstanding success throughout Europe. With over 40.000 units sold, its special combination of a high torque 690cc CP2 engine with a rugged dual purpose chassis has reaffirmed Yamaha’s position as one of the leading manufacturers of Adventure bikes – and the legendary Ténéré is once again the definitive motorcycle for every explorer and adventure seeker.

The line has been further strengthened with the Ténéré 700 Rally Edition featuring an additional range of premium upgrades that equip it for the toughest terrain – and the recent introduction of the long range Ténéré 700 World Raid has given every rider the possibility to go even further beyond the Next Horizon.

The incredible potential of the Ténéré 700 models has been demonstrated by factory rider and brand ambassador Pol Tarrés who became the first person to ride a 2-cylinder machine in the Erzbergrodeo, outperforming many riders on lightweight enduro machinery.

Pol was joined by Tunisia Desert Challenge winner Alessandro Botturi in the Ténéré World Raid Rally Team for the Africa Eco Race in October. And while the race team blasted through Africa, Nick Sanders has once again demonstrated his remarkable spirit of adventure as well as the class leading performance, durability and reliability of Yamaha’s adventure bike by completing the first circumnavigation of the globe on a Ténéré 700.

For 2023 the Ténéré 700 and Ténéré 700 Rally Edition feature a number of important upgrades and refinements that add value to the overall package and reinforce their position as the world’s leading Adventure machines.

 

World Raid style 5-inch TFT meter

Both the Ténéré 700 and Ténéré 700 Rally Edition are equipped with new 5-inch TFT meters. This high quality dashboard features a choice of two screen themes to suit different riding situations.

In “Explorer” screen mode the focus is on the RPM scale, enabling the rider to concentrate on maintaining the strongest torque output for effective dirt riding performance. The “Street” screen is a more conventional look with analogue style circular dials. Both screen styles feature a clearly designed layout with easy to read icons and warning lights that enable the rider to stay focused on the road or track in front of them.

 

Smartphone connectivity

Staying in touch is now even easier for Ténéré riders because the 2023 models are equipped with a Communication Control Unit (CCU) that enables smartphone connectivity. To activate the connectivity, the rider’s smartphone firstly needs to be linked to the machine via Bluetooth® using Yamaha’s free MyRide app. As soon as the owner has linked their smartphone, they can see notifications of incoming calls, emails and text messages on the new 5-inch TFT screen, as well as monitor key parameters of the bike via the app.

If set up accordingly, the system can also notify the rider of any technical issue that may be detected on the Ténéré and can transmit a notification via email to a motorcycle dealer or any other contact that has been designated by the rider.

MyRide app also offers many other useful functions including monitoring all key parameters of the bike, tracking the route taken, as well as recording the distance covered, acceleration, top speed, elevation changes and much more. Data can be shared on social media, compared and discussed with other Yamaha Adventure riders on some of the many internet forums and dedicated social media groups.

 

Enhanced ABS modes

The previous model’s ABS system offered a choice of ON or OFF modes, and for 2023 both the Ténéré 700 and Ténéré 700 Rally Edition are equipped with an enhanced 3-mode ABS. Already featured on the World Raid model, this improved system enables the rider to select Full ON; Front wheel ON rear wheel OFF; and Full OFF.

Full ON is mandatory when riding on the street, Front wheel ON rear wheel OFF is designed for use in moderate off road riding where grip is not constant, while Full OFF is suitable for more extreme off road riding.

 

Pre-wired for quickshifter

Ténéré 700 and Ténéré 700 Rally Edition are pre-wired for the fitment of an optional quick shifter system that is now available as a Yamaha Genuine Accessory.

 

Redesigned front brake lever, new USB socket, LED flashers

For improved durability the front brake lever has been redesigned to withstand accidental damage if the machine falls down. Other upgrades include a new USB socket in place of the previous 12V design, as well as LED flashers.

Yamaha Hyper Naked range 2023

New connected TFT meters for the best-selling MT-07 & MT-125

With their brutal no-compromise styling, muscular chassis designs and thrilling torque-rich crossplane engine technology, it’s no surprise that Yamaha’s Hyper Naked models have established themselves as the best-selling models in their respective categories.

Inspired by the alternative biking culture characterised by the Dark Side of Japan philosophy, the MT range has achieved 10 years of continued success in the European market. With over 420.000 sold, these Yamaha Hyper Nakeds have created their very own subculture of MT riders who have been inspired by their raw appeal and the ability to deliver stunning real-world performance.

Delivering an impressive mix of super agile handling, outstanding acceleration and uncompromising attitude, the MT line up covers the whole segment from 125cc through to 1000cc, offering a seamless step-up for every rider of any age.

For 2023 this outstandingly successful range is reinforced with higher specification versions of the MT-07 and MT-125. The full lineup is completed with the iconic MT-09 & MT-09 SP and the remarkable MT-10 & MT-10 SP – the most powerful Yamaha Hyper Naked.

 

2023 MT-07:

New full-colour TFT meter with smartphone connectivity

Having been at the top of the sales charts for a decade, the MT-07 needs little introduction. Suffice to say that the original concept of a torque-rich engine combined with a compact and agile chassis finished off with muscular bodywork has remained fundamentally the same – showing that Yamaha’s designers got it right first time.

MT-07’s core values are much appreciated by Europe’s riders and with sales of over 160.000, this machine is one of the most successful Yamaha motorcycles of all time. Since the original model was introduced in 2014 it has evolved gradually to match the requirements of the market, but Yamaha has always been careful to ensure that the pure and undiluted design of this remarkable middleweight retains its essential character.

Dual theme 5-inch full-colour TFT meter

The 2023 MT-07 features a range of upgrades that enhance the package while remaining true to the basic concept that’s loved by so many riders. The most significant upgrade is the new 5-inch full-colour TFT display that provides a choice of two different screen themes. The Street Theme is a more modern looking layout with a bar-type tachometer at the top and digital speedo and gear selection readouts – while the Touring Theme has a more conventional circular analogue-style tachometer on the right of the screen and digital speedometer on the left.

Smartphone connectivity with MyRide app

By downloading Yamaha’s free MyRide app to their smartphone, riders can connect with the communication control unit on latest MT-07 via Bluetooth® and view incoming call, email and message notifications on the new TFT meter.

If set up accordingly, the system can also notify the rider of any technical issue that may be detected on the MT-07 and can transmit a notification via email to a motorcycle dealer or any other contact that has been designated by the rider.

MyRide app also offers many other useful functions including monitoring all key parameters of the bike, tracking the route taken, as well as recording the distance covered, acceleration, top speed, lean angle and much more. Data can be shared on social media, compared and discussed with other Yamaha Hyper Naked riders on some of the many internet forums and social media groups.

Pre-wired for easy quickshifter fitment

Yamaha’s comprehensive Genuine Accessories line includes numerous stylistic, comfort and performance products that the MT-07 rider can select to upgrade and personalise their machine. To facilitate the fitment of a quickshifter, the latest MT-07 is prewired with the necessary electronics, making it quick and easy to benefit from the thrilling acceleration and seamless gear changes offered by this new Yamaha Genuine Accessory.

2023 MT-125: New 5-inch connected full-colour TFT meter

With its forceful good looks, great value and Yamaha Hyper Naked family DNA, the MT-125 is one of the best-selling models in its class. Popular with a wide range of customers from A1 license holders through to more experienced riders looking for a characterful lightweight, the MT-125 is upgraded for 2023 with a new 5-inch full-colour TFT screen that gives smartphone connectivity.

The system is identical to the new design featured on the MT-07, however only one display theme is available – Street Theme. After Yamaha’s MyRide app is downloaded to the rider’s smartphone and linked to the MT-125’s communication control unit, riders can view incoming call, email and message notifications on the full colour screen.

If set up accordingly, the system can also notify the rider of any technical issue that may be detected on the MT-125 and can transmit a notification via email to a motorcycle dealer or any other contact that has been designated by the rider.

As well as enabling smartphone connectivity, Yamaha’s free MyRide app also adds another dimension to every ride by recording a range of data on every journey. It enables the rider to review routes taken as well as look at other information regarding the bike’s performance. It’s a great way to learn more about the way they use the bike and remember favourite roads and places they visit – and it’s great for sharing and comparing with like-minded MT riders on social media.

New traction control system

The MT-125 already has a comprehensive specification including a 125cc engine with torque-boosting Variable Valve Actuation, as well as an Assist and Slipper clutch, upside down forks and large diameter disc brakes. For 2023 the MT-125’s level of equipment is further refined with a new traction control system that gives the rider an even higher level of confidence and control.

Yamaha introduce R1 GYTR for 2023

 

Image

GYTR: Our Racing DNA

With the same winning DNA the company had since its foundation and the same knowledge applied to any of the R-Series machines, Yamaha engineers have brought industry-leading technology to every performance accessory they’ve designed for over 40 years, and today those components are known as Genuine Yamaha Technology Racing (GYTR®) parts.

GYTR Racing parts are designed in tandem with your Yamaha for unmatched integration, using state-of-the-art materials like carbon fibre and aircraft-grade aluminium. Once the design is complete, GYTR items undergo the highest level of performance and durability analysis. This makes GYTR accessories the only Yamaha-backed, expertly developed performance products – made specifically for your Yamaha, by Yamaha. 

From the early days, GYTR technology has helped to propel Yamaha Racing Teams to many podiums and successes. Today the connection between motorsport activities development and customers has become even stronger, thanks to a reinforcement strategy to secure Yamaha Racing technology for each customer that is wanting to get the best out of their R-Series machine.

GYTR PRO SHOPS: from Racing to Customers

Winning World Championship titles is not the only ultimate goal. Yamaha is customer-centric, meaning that the brand always aims to offer customers the best service and experience. From that statement, in 2021 Yamaha created the GYTR PRO SHOPS concept: the first and only place that anyone from professional racers to track-day riders can go to for all of their racing needs. It’s where they can connect with racing experts and technicians, get their hands on high-specification components, and have their bikes tuned and customised to the highest level.

There are 17 GYTR PRO SHOPS today across Europe, aiming to expand to 25 within the coming months, and they are all connected to Racing programmes and delivering tailor made solutions for customers’ R1, R6, R7 and R3 bikes. From December 2022, those GYTR PRO SHOPS will be the only place to get the new 2023 R1 GYTR.

2023 R1 GYTR concept

The Yamaha R1 is a proven race bike, winning championships and races at the pinnacle of production bike racing, WorldSBK and national series around the world. Its unique, responsive CP4 engine offers linear torque with an excellent feel, while its distinctive chassis provides unrivalled handling, further enhanced by the KYB 43mm front forks. The IMU electronics package, ride-by-wire throttle, Brake Control and Engine Brake Management further amplifies the smooth riding experience.

Like the R6 GYTR, the new 2023 R1 GYTR is made for racing. Designed for customers who are looking for performance and quality, the R1 GYTR is prepared specifically for track usage (not homologated for road usage). Built to be faster and more precise than ever, the R1 GYTR is the ultimate canvas to tailor your own superbike machine. Designed to offer an efficient package to track-day riders and racers, it comes only with necessary parts for the track and equipped with over 25 carefully selected GYTR parts and an Akrapovic muffler and link-pipe system.

Further benefits for riders include an improved power output and rideability, making it the perfect race bike for all levels of ability, with the performance refined across the rev range. The wide variety of options to adjust the ECU makes it easier to ride at your limit, boasting optimised gearing and agility thanks to a range of lightweight parts. In line with FIM Stock 1000 regulations, the R1 GYTR offers improved braking and aerodynamics with the ideal riding position to get the most from your experience.

For riders who always want more, Yamaha is releasing to the public a very special new racing components range: the GYTR PRO line.

THE GYTR PRO line up: Closer than ever before to the R1 WorldSBK

After the historical Triple Crown in 2021, four Yamaha Racing teams are competing in the FIM Superbike World Championship with the Yamaha R1: the team Toprak Razgatlioglu took the world title with – Pata Yamaha with Brixx WorldSBK – as well as GYTR GRT Yamaha WorldSBK Team, GIL Motorsport Yamaha WorldSBK Team and Motoxracing Yamaha WorldSBK Team. All bikes are equipped with GYTR parts to increase the R1’s performance, and components developed by Yamaha Racing engineers specifically for those machines racing at the highest level. Today, Yamaha offer those components, in limited quantities, to all Yamaha racers in GYTR PRO SHOPS.

So customers will be able to build an R1 with all the same parts as the R1 WorldSBK, using the new Yamaha GYTR PRO line up. Yamaha first gave a taste of this special parts line up with the R1 GYTR PRO VR46, offered to Valentino Rossi in 2021 using a combination of parts from GYTR and GYTR PRO future catalogues, and some premium components from Öhlins and Brembo.

There have been 400 parts developed for the total scope of the GYTR PRO line up, with targeted availability through the GYTR PRO SHOPS starting from April 2023.
