PICS: Special Yamaha livery for Misano MotoGP
13 September 2012
Factory Yamaha riders Jorge Lorenzo and Ben Spies will ride in this special 'Race-Blu' livery during the San Marino and Aragon MotoGPs.
The livery, by Italian designer Aldo Drudi, features a contrasting combination of Yamaha Blue and matt grey bodywork, and will be run to celebrate the launch of the new 'Race Blu' Series on selected Yamaha production models.
Lorenzo and Spies will also wear special leathers to complement the bike.
The YZF-R1, YZF-R6 and YZF-R125 unveiled today in Misano will be the first production models to feature the new livery for the 2013 model year.
This will be the first time a Yamaha special livery used in grand prix racing will be available at the same time for consumers to buy on production motorcycles.
“I am very proud to ride with these special colours,” said world championship leader Lorenzo. “The Yamaha racing colours are always very iconic and have a great history. It's very cool that racing fans will be able to ride in the same colours that we race in!”
“It's another really cool special livery from Yamaha,” added Spies. “The red and white one brought me a lot of luck last year with my win in Assen so I'm hoping this Race-Blu will do the same here in Misano and Aragon!”
