New Yamaha Tenere 700 Prototype

This seems to solve the lack of power from the 660 but let's hope it's not too heavy and has some decent suspension.


From ADVPulse:




New spy photos provide the first view of an all-new Yamaha middleweight adventure bike based on the FZ-07 (known as the MT-07 in Europe) naked bike. Yamaha made their intent clear to build several different bikes with the FZ-07 platform when it first introduced the model in 2014 — Now we are finally seeing this become a reality.
Spy photos captured outside Yamaha’s Italian test facility reveal a middleweight Tenere with a clear off-road focus, sporting a 21″ front and 18″ rear wheels along with a stout aluminum skid plate for trail protection. The frame, bodywork, forks all appear to be different from the FZ-07 with only the engine being carried over. There is also a robust subframe visible in the photos, useful for carrying hard luggage.

      I went last year for the first time and it was a lot of fun.  There is a lot of great riding over there and camping and partying with hundreds of other ADV enthusiasts is a blast.  There are many vendors with all kinds of cool products from little gizmos to whole motorcycles you can try out.  There are some great learning opportunities with Jimmy Lewis, Dirt First, and PSSOR doing classes.  There is a huge tent area for those riding in, but also an RV area if you want to trailer in too.  They offer guided tours for any skill level, or you can just make up your own using the supplied GPS maps.  There is food, beer, and gas available right across the street, but those great vendors usually have a keg flowing in the evening.  Last year there were about 800 people making it the largest ADV rally in the US, I believe.  This year they are going to actually limit attendance to about 1000 and early bird tickets sales end in February, so don't delay.
      See you there!,

      Hey guys! 
      My name is Scott and I'm a fairly new off road rider/seasoned photographer from Baltimore, MD. I was recently approached by BMW Motorrad to participate in their Everyday Adventures project, which is based around the ethos of exploring the best motorcycling places that are close to home. The project involved is posting content that reflects these endeavors, and the person who gains the most folllowers proportionate to where they started from is flown out to Motorrad Days in Germany! It would mean a lot if you all check out my content and give me a follow! Some of my work is attached below, and my Instagram is scottbraaplyphoto!
