Yamaha Ténéré World Raid Team

The Yamaha Ténéré World Raid Team is a brand new project from Yamaha Motor Europe, in partnership with Riders for Health, that will compete in several Rally events in 2022, the first of which will be the Tunisian Desert Challenge. Riders Alessandro Botturi and Pol Tarres will take on this unique challenge aboard bikes based on the newly launched Ténéré 700 World Raid but further developed by Yamaha with the addition of specialized GYTR parts, such as a larger fuel tank and KYB suspension, to better withstand the extreme demands of a competitive Rally Raid.

The team will be run on behalf of Yamaha by Rebel X Sports under the direction of the Team Manager and experienced Rally Raid campaigner, Manuel Lucchese. The Italian was the 2012 Baja World Champion and has also competed in the Dakar rally several times, with a best finish of third in the Malles Moto class in 2016.
