Factory Yamaha MotoGP riders Jorge Lorenzo and Ben Spies will make a PR visit to Indonesia this week.

It will be the first time that Spies has visited the country, while Lorenzo - who will arrive fresh from previous PR duties in India - is now something of a regular visitor.

"Indonesia is like my second home," said the 2010 world champion. "I love the country... This will be the fifth consecutive year that I've been to Indonesia and it's always fun."

It is not yet clear if the M1 riders will remain in the region after the visit, which takes place from January 13-15, with the first MotoGP test session of 2012 starting at Sepang in 'nearby' Malaysia on January 31st.

Indonesia is one of the most important markets for small capacity motorcycles in the world.
