Josh Brookes and Broc Parkes unveiled the all-new Yamaha R1 for the 2015 British Superbike Championship at Yamaha's Racing Headquarters in Italy.

Team manager Mick Shanley says his team has been working closely with the Yamaha factory over the winter while developing the new bike and felt honoured to be part of the Japanese manufacturer's official launch.

"It is a big honour for our team to be involved with the official Yamaha project for the new R1," he said. "It has been fantastic to be a part of this event and to have the launch hosted at the headquarters of Yamaha's MotoGP team shows how highly-regarded the new R1 is to the factory."
