What is YXZ1000R Cup?

Yamaha Motor Europe is proud to launch the YXZ1000R European Cup in 2020, a project designed to inspire and support customers to race Yamaha’s sports SxS.

The YXZ1000R Cup is a mono brand racing community inside multiple championships around Europe.

The Cup takes place in six countries: Spain, Portugal, Germany, France, Italy, and Great Britain, with each National Cup featuring a minimum of three races.


Competitors can enter the Stock category for unmodified vehicles. Both pilot and co-pilot must be over 18 years of age with a national federation license to enter.

The top scoring racers in the Stock category from each National Cup qualify and are entitled to a free entry for a unique SuperFinale event to be held during the Baja Portalegre in Portugal, October 2020.

The winner of the SuperFinale will receive a brand new Stock YXZ1000R. The 2020 Cup will also field Wildcard entries in the SuperFinale. The top finishing YXZ1000R in the Stock category, in both the 2020 Merzouga Rally – Morocco and Baja Aragon – Spain, will automatically qualify for the SuperFinale, joining the qualifiers from the National Cups.

A new program running parallel to the official YXZ1000R European Cup will be the YXZ1000R Challenge, an overall ranking for racers competing outside of the Cup regardless of their racing preparation type. The YXZ1000R Challenge winner will receive a free entry to the Baja Aragon 2021.
