The Yamaha Ténéré 700 (T7) continues to enjoy in popularity, not only in abroad but also here in the Philippines. In fact, a T7 adventure group (PH) was formed on Facebook not too long ago and their numbers continue to grow every day.
For those who fancy everything that is retro but doesn’t dig the T7’s modern rally bike styling, a French motorcycle lifestyle shop, Crispy Club, is offering a kit that will turn the T7 into an 80s Dakar Rally bike.
The “Ténéré 700 Heritage Kit”, as it is called, is offered in three configurations. The base configuration, which costs EUR 2,400 (roughly PHP 140,625), consists of front tank scoops, high mudguard, headlight plate with integrated LED lighting and speedometer offset. This kit is ready for painting – meaning it will be shipped like a blank canvass.
The midrange kit, which costs EUR 2,900 (roughly PHP 170,000), includes all of the above-mentioned plastics with the addition of a high rear fender kit and is pre-painted from the factory. Color choices are red, blue, black, and Rally Sky Blue.
For the top of the line kit, which costs EUR 3,900 (about PHP 230,000), is a numbered, limited edition kit that includes everything that was aforementioned with the addition of a brown suede rally seat. To accomplish this limited edition paint job, Crispy Club would require the bike to be shipped into their shop for painting.
All kits are plug ‘n play – meaning there’s no need to modify the existing brackets for the T7’s fairings. Note, however, that the Akrapovic exhaust system is NOT included on the Ténéré 700 Heritage Kit and is sold separately.
Are you a T7 owner and have PHP 230K to spare? If you do, would you slap this onto your T7? Let us know in the comments if this is a go or a no-go for you.
