Yamaha has shown a concept model at the 2016 EICMA show called the T7. This uses the MT 07 motor and is likely to be the Tenere 600 replacement as it was announced earlier the 660 Terene is being discontinued in 2017

The game moves on dramatically though with this concept. Packing the MT-07’s CP2 engine into an all-new chassis, the T7 should dig into the soft stuff with superb tractability from the parallel-twin 700.

Equipped with an aluminium fuel tank, quad-projector LED headlight, a carbon fairing and skid plate, and a custom made Akrapovic exhaust – as well as high specification KYB front suspension, 21in front and 18in rear, the T7 concept is a serious statement.
