Yamaha has announced a donation of 16 motorcycles to Riders for Health as the partnership between the two enters its second year. 

The partnership between Yamaha and Riders for Health began in 2022, and saw Yamaha raise enough money for Riders for Health to allow it to purchase 16 Yamaha AG100 motorcycles as part of its efforts to refresh its motorcycle fleet in its programme in The Gambia. 

Yamaha has now announced that it will also donate 16 AG100s to Riders for Health for its The Gambia programme, as “the replacement of their ageing AG100 fleet remains their [Riders for Health] most urgent goal,” Yamaha said.

In addition to the donation of motorcycles, Yamaha will be continuing with fundraising efforts in 2023. Prize draws and auctions will take place, organised by Two Wheels for Life, where items will include guest passes to MXGP and WorldSBK events, and memorabilia from Yamaha’s racing efforts in those championships. More details on the prize draws and auctions are available on the Yamaha Motor for Riders website.

2022 saw Riders for Health as a title partner on the Yamaha Tenere World Raid Team, and this is something which will also continue in 2023, while the charity will also “be on tour with Yamaha,” the Iwata marque says in a press release, during Yamaha’s Tenere 40th anniversary celebrations at various ‘Tenere Spirit’ events around Europe, which begins in June. The calendar for the Tenere 40th anniversary is yet to be released, but will be posted to the Yamaha website “soon,” Yamaha says.
