Yamaha - WSBK 2011 Preview

Proving how good the R6 continues to be as a package, riders Luca Scassa and Chaz Davies – the highest placed returnee in 2011 – have dust the cobwebs off and scaled timesheets swiftly during testing.

Updates will likely come over the season and BE1 will, in the short-term at least, probably enjoy greater success as a privateer Yamaha team than as a factory Triumph entity. Whether they can sustain it without a manufacturer-backer remains to be seen, however.

Elsewhere, Bike Service, which showed flashes of speed during its selected events in 2010, return full-time with two bikes for Roberto Tamburini and Luca Marconi, while Russia will get its first proper WSS entry through Rivamoto.
