Marking Yamaha's success on the MotoGP circuit, two of Yamaha's most popular 50cc machines are getting a racy new suit for 2005.
The entry level machine in the R-series range, the TZR50 sports 50cc, will be offered in the distinctive blue and yellow colours of world champion Valentino Rossi's YZR-M1 racer. Mechanically the TZR50 remains untouched, meaning the same lively two-stroke engine with its six-speed manual gearbox, disc brakes and sports suspension package which has proved such a success since the bike's introduction in 2003.
Also coming in MotoGP livery is the ever popular Aerox Race Replica scooter, which features updated graphics commemorating Valentino's success in the 2004 MotoGP world championship. The sharp looking scoot, features the 2004 victory logo, '46' and 'The Doctor' logos. On top of that TZR50 also features Rossi's signature on the tank. Both models are due in the showrooms later this month, regional differences reserved. TZR50 will not be available in the UK.
