Yamaha provides 45 motorcycles to the Tour de Suisse security service.
Yamaha is ensuring safety on the Tour de Suisse – with 45 motorcycles. These are made available to the security service. It guarantees that the racers at the competition can drive on the track without obstacles. Ten minutes before cyclists reach a passage, oncoming traffic is blocked, traffic islands, roundabouts and other obstacles are equipped with security personnel and other safety-relevant precautions are taken. The total closure of the road will then take place five minutes before the passage.
This year 35 Yamaha Tracer 700, 3 Yamaha Tracer 900 and 7 Yamaha XT1200Z will be used. In addition, the hostettler house brand iXS provides the bike clothing for the entire security team. Three weeks before the Tour de Suisse starts, the members of the safety team receive their machine – to break in and get used to it. The automatisms on the motorcycles must be in place until the Tour de Suisse.
In addition, you can take a look at the new, revolutionary Yamaha NIKEN with its unique tricycle technology in the advertising column that will be riding in front of the cycling pros.
