It should be noted that the high point of the new tanks is lower than the top of the tank of the Ténéré 700, reducing the difference in height between the tank and the saddle, to offer a flatter profile and increase the mobility of the rider while riding. off road.
The new saddle which is 890 mm high from the ground has a flatter profile to facilitate movement while riding, while the rear part can be removed to allow the mounting of accessories or luggage.

The equipment includes the new three-part aluminum alloy engine guard, the ground clearance is 250 mm .
A vertical vented protective grille is placed in front of the cooling circuit radiator , and there are new, wider footpegs to offer more grip for the boots and have a removable rubber lining.
The weight when full goes up to 220 kg , which means 8 kg more than the standard Ténéré 700 for the same amount of fuel on board.
