When the first Dakar Rally took place back in 1979 it gave the Yamaha XT a chance to prove itself in the world’s toughest race. XT riders won this legendary event in ’79 and ’80, and inspired the development of the original Ténéré in 1983 – Yamaha’s iconic adventure bike that changed the world of motorcycling.
Ride the legend
