Tuareg Experience Baja: off-roading in Baja California!

Tuareg Experience Baja: off-roading in Baja California!

At the end of October last year, the Tuareg 660 was the star of the exclusive Experience organised by Aprilia US, which allowed a diverse group of bikers to embark on an unforgettable motorbike expedition through star-spangled California and the Mexican state of Baja California. A tour that we at #bearacer club will try to sum up for you, accompanied by spectacular images and video captured along the American West Coast:  this is the Baja Tuareg Experience!

Striking landscapes, at times arid and wild, that fuel the adventurous spirit in all of us, but at the same time hospitable and reassuring; just like the unmistakable Aprilia riding experience on the Tuareg.

The overall route clocked up an impressive 1,300 miles (more than 2000 km) in 6 days from San Diego to Bahía de los Ángeles and back, through dramatic coastal sections and challenging detours into the dusty hinterland of Mexican dirt roads, passing through desert landscapes and mountain chains with breathtaking colours. Settings in which the Tuareg 660 bikes performed exceptionally well, proving to be the perfect tool to transform the adventurous ambitions of every participant into a real-life experience.


Nothing brings together a group of individuals like sharing the search for and discovery of such powerful emotions. And so, 11 bikers, who came with different expectations, riding styles and experiences, found themselves in just a few hours clocking up the miles with a unity of purpose and the high spirits of a truly exploratory expedition.

From the off-road enthusiast to the avid track racer, all the Baja Tuareg Experience participants went away thrilled with the surroundings as well as the Tuareg 660 riding experience. In a landscape seemingly tailor-made for the two sides of the Tuareg, the multiple transitions between asphalt and off-road brought out the best in the qualities of this bike, developed to fuel the desire to explore the world in all conditions. A bike with performance, style and above all a true Aprilia feeling.

Having set out as individuals, the 11 motorbike travellers returned home as friends, united by the sharing of stories and experiences from these 6 intense days that they couldn’t wait to repeat as soon as they could.

Needless to say, some of them have already decided to “extend the Experience” by adding a new Tuareg 660 to their garages: perhaps this is the most tangible proof of how, deep down, we are all thrill-seekers. When we find what’s right for us, we can’t let it go… but first we have to try it!
