YAMAHA: AN ALL-YELLOW 60TH ANNIVERSARY
Don’t look out for the blue bikes! All the factory Yamahas are yellow at this weekend’s Bol d’Or.
The official GMT94 Yamaha and Monster Energy Yamaha YART bikes will be easy to spot on the Castellet track this weekend. The Yamaha R1 ridden by the French and Austrian squads and all the members of both teams will be kitted out in a dazzling yellow reminiscent of Kenny Roberts’s colours to mark the brand’s 60th anniversary. The superb retro look of the Yamaha R1 2015 is matched by equally knockout performances. The GMT94 Yamaha team placed third after the free tests at midday, while the Monster Energy Yamaha YART bike came in fifth.
