Yamaha USA has announced activities planned for the 79th Annual Daytona Bike Week in Daytona Beach, Florida from March 6 through March 14. Attendees of the iconic motorsports gathering that includes the 50th Annual Daytona Supercross, the Wild Boar GNCC, the Daytona 200, and the Daytona TT, will have opportunities to demo ride motorcycles, check out new models on display, purchase apparel, and connect with Yamaha ambassadors.
Festivities begin on March 6 at the Vendor Village located outside of Daytona International Speedway, where riders who want to experience the thrill of a Yamaha motorcycle will be able to demo a variety of Supersport, Hyper Naked, Sport Heritage, Sport Touring and Transcontinental Touring models including:
- YZF-R6 and YZF-R3
- MT-10, MT-09, MT-07 and the all-new MT-03
- XSR900 AND XSR700
- FJR1300, Tracer 900 GT and NIKEN GT
- Star Venture and Star Eluder
After competing in Saturday night’s Supercross race, Monster Energy Yamaha Racing’s Aaron Plessinger will act as Grand Marshall at the Wild Boar GNCC in Palatka, Florida on Sunday, March 8. Plessinger will be on hand to connect with youth motorcycle racers as they compete in their 8 a.m. race, and sign special limited-edition posters during the 11 a.m. autograph session on Bike Pro Row.
On Monday, March 9, 10 Yamaha Premier members will join the Yamaha crew for an early morning ride in Daytona followed by a special pancake breakfast with “Long Haul” Paul Pelland. In his quest to ride one million miles as an advocate for Multiple Sclerosis research fundraising, Pelland recently passed the 100,000-mile mark on his Yamaha Star Venture. Throughout Daytona Bike Week, Pelland’s Star Venture will be on display and he will be available to answer questions about his experience.
For the duration of Bike Week, the Yamaha display in the Daytona Fanzone (located inside the speedway) will feature the all-new 2021 Ténéré 700 Adventure Touring motorcycle. Attendees who visit the display can also register to win a replica of Aaron Plessinger’s Monster Energy Yamaha Racing YZ450F courtesy of Yamaha Financial Services.
Yamaha apparel will be available for purchase from the Vendor Village demo ride location throughout the week, and from the Fanzone display on Saturday, March 7.
