It’s a world record! Yamaha’s ambassador Pol Tarrés reaches a 6.157,5-meter altitude on his Tenere 700.
Restlessly dreaming of riding vertically till the end of the world, Pol Tarrés had no choice but to take action. In a record time of as little as three months, a prophetic dream grew into a creative project of the Trece Racing Society and The Who production company.
Faithful to his obsession for the roads less travelled, Pol turned his eyes toward the Mercedario mountain in Argentina. “The main purpose of our expedition was to test the bike and the rider in the toughest conditions possible, going Alpine style all the way. On the 12th of March, I took off from the base camp 3.000m high, did 10km and slept at the intermediate camp at 4.500. On the 14th, I touched the highest point ever reached on a twin-cylinder bike, 6.157,5 meters.”
The bike torture test showed that Yamaha Tenere 700 is ready for 7.000. Pol showed once again that he was born ready - his free ride to Cerro Mercedario, one of the highest mountains of the Andes, made its way to the Guinness World Records book and made him yearn for MORE.
The adventure continues. Always.

We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
