The Seeker is a movie featuring enduro rider Pol Tarres riding a Yamaha Tenere 700 to its limits. The rider manages to perform all sort of tricks on the middleweight adventure motorcycle from wheelies, powerslides, jumps, hill climbs to even taking the Tenere 700 look like a trial bike.
Pol Tarres is a Catalan trial rider born in Rellinars, Spain. Back in 2010, he became the World Youth Champion and Junior European Champion and one year sooner he was European Youth Champion. Being the son of Francesc Tarrés i Sànchez, older brother of Jordi Tarrés, and therefore nephew of the seven-time World Trial Champion he knows a thing or two about riding a motorcycle. Also, he is an enduro and hard enduro rider for the Sherco team. But let’s get back on The Seeker movie.
Here, Pol Tarres rides a Yamaha Tenere 700 like it’s a 250cc enduro motorcycle. The rider bends the 689cc twin-cylinder crossplane engined bike with so much ease it’s hard to believe that the adventure motorcycle has a wet weight of 204 kg. In other words, the extreme riding most likely surpassed the factory testing the Japanese brand made when they developed the Tenere 700.
The Seeker movie was made by Pol Tarres who teamed up with the Echevarria Brothers (also known as the Who) to make this new short film. We have to say it looks awesome and it’s hard to believe a Yamaha Tenere 700 can do all these tricks. all it’s left is to fit a pair of wings on it and make it fly.
