May 15, 2018

Yamaha Ténéré World RaidYamaha sends the new Ténéré 700 “World Raid” on a journey around the world before the official presentation. Well-known personalities are supposed to collect driving impressions with the latest evolutionary stage of the legendary model.

Long enough, Yamaha has been tormenting the adventure bike scene since launching the T7 concept at Eicma 2016 – now the Ténéré project is entering its final phase before the official presentation. The Japanese motorcycle manufacturer sends celebrities on a world tour, each of whom is to ride a section, with the new machine on tour.

Rodney Fargotter, a member of the rally factory team, started in Australia. The second stage will lead through the Moroccan desert. There the 700 is ridden by Stephane Peterhansel, who won six of his 13 Dakar titles aboard Ténéré rallye motorcycles.

Five famous adventurers will travel the European continent. The first one is Nick Sanders, the fastest earthrounder on a motorcycle. Then former Dakar rider David Frétigné will take a loop before handing over the motorcycle to Herbert Schwarz. The Touratech founder is one of the most important inventors of the international adventure scene. Schwarz will be superseded by the Spanish enduro professional Cristóbal Guerrero, before the Italian enduro and rally crack Alessandro Botturi strikes off.

The further destinations and which protagonists will ride the Ténéré will be announced soon.
