Yamaha YZF-R1 gets a new look

 

 

 

Yamaha has opted for new livery with a Yamaha Blue and matte grey colour combination for its 2013 YZF-R1, YZF-R6 and YZF-R125 models. To celebrate this series, Yamaha has created a new look for its MotoGP factory YZR-M1 machine which featured a ‘RaceBlu’ inspired livery at the Misano (Italy) and Aragon (Spain) rounds of the 2012 MotoGP season. 

 

Yamaha Factory Team Riders Jorge Lorenzo and Ben Spies donned special leathers in RaceBlu colours to compliment the bike. “I am very proud to ride with these special colours. 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!” said Jorge Lorenzo.

 

While the bikes will sport the traditional Yamaha Blue and matte grey colours, the alloy wheels will be painted in the racing blue shade. The all-new design has been created by renowned artist Aldo Drudi, who created seven-time World Champion Valentino Rossi’s MotoGP helmets. The new design harks back to Yamaha’s early 1980s livery. This is the first time that the Japanese major will use Grand Prix racing colours on its production models. 

 

There is no news on whether the 2013 Yamaha bikes will be given any performance upgrades.
