The Alpes Aventure Motofestival, which will be held from September 8 to 10 in Barcelonnette (04), has become the unmissable motorcycle and adventure event to end the summer in style. This year, Yamaha will go all out with the celebration of the 40th anniversary of the legendary Ténéré.
Ténéré, 40 years of adventure.
Since its birth in 1983 with the XT600Z model, the Ténéré has made the hearts of adventure enthusiasts beat faster and has captured the minds of motorcyclists looking for wide open spaces like Paris-Dakar. In 2023, Yamaha is marking the 40th anniversary of this iconic model through various major events in Europe, and the Alpes Aventure Motofestival is certainly one of the highlights of these celebrations. Yamaha therefore invites you to a special evening on Saturday September 9 around the Lac du Lauzet (04) to celebrate the Ténéré in the company of personalities such as Stéphane Peterhansel, Laurent Cochet, all the Ténéré Centers and the Yamaha team.
This exceptional evening, offered at the price of €25 per person, includes several advantages:
– A group departure from Barcelonnette for a walk of about 20 minutes to Lac du Lauzet (departure point communicated later).
– A convivial dinner on Saturday 9 September.
– A Ténéré 40th anniversary Welcome Pack.
– The assurance of having a good time in good company.
