Deus Italy brings this Yamaha Tenere 700 back to Paris Dakar

Yamaha Ténéré 700 It has been a hit since Team Blue released the model in July 2019. Equipped with a CP2 parallel two-cylinder power plant, a brand new chassis and 21-inch front wheels, the T7 is suitable for mile crushers and genuine off-road vehicles. .. Of course, the model’s semi-futuristic bodywork is also freely borrowed from the rally world and contributes to its success.

However, the Italian branch of Deus ex machina saw the spirit of the Paris-Dakar machine in the late 70’s / early 80’s to modern adventurers. With the Wheels and Waves Festival in mind, the team set out to turn Ténéré into a retro ADV in time for the annual custom bike show.Unfortunately, the event is Cancel June 2021, but it did not stop Deus Italia from creating a tribute to the golden age of the Dakar Rally.

Drawing from YamahaThe XT600 Ténéré is a 3D printed bodywork mold by the team before creating a retro panel from fiberglass. With the original plastic removed, the new “Camel” gas tank cover brings back the era of rally raids. The XT600’s box tail unit also influenced the Dues T7 Custom, with white / yellow livery and speedblock graphics incorporating a vintage Yamaha design.

The retro aesthetic extends to the front end, with two radiator protector strips integrated into a larger front fairing. Square LED headlights capture the charm of throwback without sacrificing visibility, and the new high-mounted fenders bring Ténéré even more in harmony with classic rally bikes. Acerbis handguards protect the rider’s fingers, and a sturdy Yamaha sump guard protects the 689cc block from rocks and debris.

However, Deus is taking more conservative steps in its performance department. The Custom SC-Project Titanium Exhaust System adds extra bark and bite while the Metzeler Karoo Extreme Tire transfers much of its power to the ground. Andreani’s front end, on the other hand, increases ride height by 30 mm, and Öhlins’ Monoshock equips the T7 on the steepest terrain.

Deus wasn’t able to show off the throwback Ténéré at Deus Swank Rally at Wheels & Waves, but he was discouraged from seeing four-time Rallye du Touket winner Jean-Claude Moussé show everyone what the project could really do. I couldn’t.
