WATCH THE VIDEO HERE

After recently being launched overseas to international media , Yamaha Motor New Zealand has confirmed Kiwis will be getting the new Tenere 700 World Raid , but it comes with a bit of a wait . While New Zealand pricing is yet to be confirmed , Yamaha Motor New Zealand has confirmed the first examples of the World Raid are expected to arrive in dealers in the second quarter of 2023 . The Tenere 700 World Raid builds on the solid platform that is the Tenere 700 and goes further in areas that were perceived as weaknesses of the original . Upgrades for the World Raid model include a full TFT dash replacing the basic LCD unit of the T7 , higher specification KYB suspension and twin fuel tanks wrapped by more substantial bodywork . If reception ( and corresponding wait list times ) of the T7 World Raid is anything to go by , you ’ ll want to get your deposit down pronto if you want to be spending much of 2023 riding the new T7 World Raid . We recon it ’ ll be very popular among the adventure riding crowd .
