Kenyan women riders, Throttle Queens, departed to Tanzania – Malawi border to receive the baton for Women Riders World Relay (WRWR), as they cover the Tanzanian and Kenyan leg of the worldwide women’s motorbike relay.

Speaking at the flag off, Yamaha Brand Manager Cleon Oguya said, “As we support our Kenyan female riders, we are also giving them an opportunity to experience the joy that comes with riding a Yamaha motorbike, especially for such a long ride like this one to Tanzania and back. The FZ-S 150CC offers strength and comfort on the road at an affordable price, where we have reduced the price from Sh500,000 to Sh300,000.”

In support of this, Yamaha by Toyota Kenya has sponsored Aisha Mohammed, one of the eight Throttle Queens, with the Yamaha FZ-S 150CC, a sporty commuter bike.
