To celebrate selling one million Exciter motorcycles, Yamaha Motor Vietnam decided to organise a record-breaking event that would be sure to thrill the country’s bikers.

At Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam, Yamaha set up three Guinness World Records title attempts and invited hundreds of motorbike enthusiasts to take part.

Two of the challenges were successful and led to new records.

First up was an attempt at forming the Largest human image of a motorcycle and, naturally, the organisers chose to recreate the Yamaha Exciter vehicle – but on a supersize scale.

A minimum of 250 people were needed for the debut attempt at this title, but the bikers smashed that total with an incredible 1,325 people.

The participants wore matching blue outfits in order to create a block colour image, as required by the Guinness World Records guidelines.
