That’s right, you’ve heard right. Yamaha’s first shipment of the Ténéré 700 is confirmed for Canada, currently they have been crated and shipped from the factory in Iwata, Japan. Now it’s just a matter of time before they start showing up on dealership floors.
Originally last year we were told to expect the Ténéré 700 through the summer of 2020, so it’s a happy surprise to hear that we will start seeing them here in May. Unit deliveries will be made in the same order as when deposits were placed during the early deposit program. However, due to the current situation with COVID-19, there are approximately 150 early deposit customers that will not see their new, shiny machines until later in the summer.
