Bezzi we all know is one of the brilliant designers on the planet, and his designs are known very well across the motorcycle world.
What you currently see is the output of partnership between Oberdan Bezzi and Mauro Gessi of Gessi Motorcycles.
Why have they collaborated?
The objective is to increase the performance of Yamaha Tenere 700. And polish it by making changes in the ergonomics and the body of the bike.
To make it more suitable for exclusive competitions the Rally racer 700 comes equipped with new unique components.
The suspension arrives with an increased excursion.
More it comes with Brand new swingarm, robust brakes and wheel rims and racing exhausts. Now, these components help a rider to take in on tight roads.
At the front, the Rally racer 700 has two large-capacity separate tanks. The Rally racer 700 is robust as the frame is made up of aluminium.
And again helps the rider stay more focused on the tight roads.
Dressed in the carbon fibre/ kevlar components ensures the bike carries max weight and weighs less.
To retain the aesthetics, the standard components like the windshield and front headlight remains as is.
Another objective of the collaborators is also to bring these bikes in limited editions. Other idea was to create the Rally racer as a one-off model. And make it more customized for riders who are looking forward to participating in the Rallies.
When it comes to paint schemes buyer has multiple options right from glossy silver to blue combined with silver.
Rally racer 700 gets much attention to details with some good quality components to make it an exclusive model.
However, we also see the specifications of standard Tenere 700 model.
