The learner-approved motorcycle program (AML program) gives you access to a range of motorcycles and scooters tailored to your level of experience. As a holder of a RE (learner, provisional and open) licence, you can ride a learner-approved motorcycle. A learner-approved motorcycle that is modified or otherwise modified through the use of optional manufacturer`s components so that it continues to meet the manufacturer`s specifications is permitted as long as it does not increase the performance of the motorcycle or reduce the dead weight of the motorcycle. The engine used in the T7 Tenere Concept originated on the Australian market as a 655cc to meet LAMS restrictions to make the MT-07 available to learners. The following year, Yamaha also released the MT-07 in the full 689cc power that the rest of the world receives.

This larger 689cc engine had 75 hp compared to the 52 hp of the LAMS machine. Torque has also been significantly increased from 57.5 Nm to 68 Nm, which is enough for a top speed of around 220 km/h in the MT-07. More of a visual learner?

It is your responsibility to ensure that you are riding a motorcycle with a driver`s licence if you hold a P1 or P2 learner`s licence. If you are a learner driver or holder of a limited motorcycle license, you can only drive a motorcycle that complies with the LAMS. It has a real retro look, but in reality, it`s a brand new, modern bike that`s a bit of adventure, a bit of sporting heritage. Based on the XRS 700, the 2018 Yamaha Ténéré 655 is actually approved by learners and offers a lot of fun. The exemption is granted to ensure fair and equal access for customers with disabilities. The exemption applies only to AML approved motorcycles. All modifications to the vehicle must be approved by an approved certifier. Individually manufactured (custom-made) motorcycles are not considered for inclusion in the AML program.

Yamaha was back in the race with its new two-cylinder Ténéré. They won 7 of the 8 Dakar rallies that followed from 1991 to 1998. As a holder of a RE-provisional or open licence, you can learn to drive an R motorcycle if you have held a RE-provisional or open licence for at least 2 years. You must drive under the direction of a person who currently holds an open R driver`s licence and has held it for at least 1 year. Manual control, for example, is not exactly first-class. Below, we`ll review the legendary history of the Ténéré name, dive into the specs of the latest 2021 model, and give an honest look at our pros and cons of Yamaha`s new medium-weight adventure bike. Note: If you obtained your provisional or open RE driver`s licence before October 1, 2016, you can learn to ride an R motorcycle after holding your provisional or open RE licence for at least 1 year. Yamaha unveiled the legendary XT600Z Ténéré 33 years ago at the Paris Motor Show, I think it`s fair to say that if the T7 delivers up to half of what is promised in these teasers, then the legend of Tenere will reach a whole new level and take the adventure bike market by storm. It`s not a 105hp fire-breathing monster like the KTM 890. But there`s nothing you can`t get through with the CP2`s 73 heavy ponies.

Whether you choose a Yamaha scooter or an entry-level motorcycle, you`ll get to work on time every time. And you will arrive with a smile, ready to take on the challenges that await you. That`s because you`ve ditched the weekly Opal card. You have saved time by breaking the deadlock. You parked for free near work. They filled the servo with gold coins. And you have experienced the freedom and fun that only two wheels can offer. Change the way you move now! In order for a motorcycle to be approved for use by novice riders, it must not deviate from the manufacturer`s standard specifications. The Learner Approved Motorcycle (LAM) program allows beginners to ride only motorcycles or scooters with low and moderate riding. The 2021 Yamaha Ténéré 700 is a breath of fresh air in this regard, coming from other medium-weight motorcycles with fully electronic suites: you have to master gear changes for hours on layers of riding modes, controls and menus. Public transport has never been the ideal solution. Of course, a bus or train will bring you closer to where you want to be, at a time that may or may not be acceptable.

But why take this risk? Add to that the hassle of standing in line to board a crowded bus full of strangers who may or may not be healthy, and the risk increases. If this sounds like a situation worth avoiding, you have two options: bike or car? But a car has its own problems, including purchase price, traffic jams, high operating costs, and parking problems. The Smart Move includes two wheels – and now is the best time to do so. No, it doesn`t have the infinitely customizable riding modes of the KTM 790/890 adventure bikes, the touring amenities of the Tiger 900 or the extra 50 pounds of weight that BMW adds to their 850 GS for free. Just hop on the bike and ride as long as you want. With an emphasis on the long. Simple, simple and functional. The 2021 Yamaha Ténéré 700 prefers wrist control to traction control, sport tubular tires and its dashboard has more in common with a pager than an iPhone.

Essentially, its benefits are all the things it lacks. We have had the new Ténéré 700 in our fleet for almost a year and we believe it deserves both the meaning of “desert” and “solitude” of the word.
