Also announced were two new colors: Matte Black and Intensity White. The additional hues make for three available options, including the previously announced Ceramic Ice colorway featured in _Cycle World_’s Ténéré 700 first ride.

No further details were given on the US-spec model, but the Ténéré 700 looks to continue on the same Pirelli Scorpion Rally STR tires as the Euro model. There is, however, an interesting catch with rake and trail numbers on the American model. Yamaha has yet to confirm the aforementioned specs, suggesting a possible chassis-related change prior to arrival.
