Yamaha WGP 50th Anniversary Models

In the enduro world the Yamaha WR450F has won a reputation among dirt riders for its gutsy performance across the rev range, combined with precision handling on the toughest terrain, as well as class-leading durability and reliability. For the new race season Yamaha will introduce an all-new WR450F which benefits from the advanced engine and chassis technology developed from our racing programmes.

For over a decade the remarkable Yamaha YZF-R1 has been at the very forefront of high performance motorcycle technology on the road and track, with a WSB World Championship title and numerous national and international race wins to its credit. Since its launch this cutting-edge machine has constantly pushed the boundaries of engine and chassis development, and the latest model takes the R1 experience to a new level. For 2012 this outstanding 998cc supersport motorcycle benefits from a number of electronic and aerodynamic upgrades and modifications which are designed to enhance both its overall performance and controllability.

To celebrate 50 years of Grand Prix racing, Yamaha are pleased to announce the launch of a range of models which will feature an evocative race-inspired colour scheme as used by Jorge Lorenzo and Ben Spies in the 2011 MotoGP season. Based on the famous red and white ‘speedblock’ colour scheme originally featured on Yamaha’s pioneering Grand Prix race bikes in the 1960s and 1970s, this classic yet contemporary WGP 50th Anniversary colour scheme will be available on the YZF-R1, FZ8, YZF-R6, YZF-R125 and Aerox.

Aimed at design-conscious riders who are looking for a clean and minimalist image, there are many new models available for 2012 in a special matt grey colour scheme. The Series Grey line adds another dimension to the extensive Yamaha line-up. First seen in the high-end supercar market, this neutral colour scheme highlights lines and curves in a special way to give the bikes a fresh new look. The new Series Grey finish will be available on the YZF-R1, YZF-R6, FZ8, Fazer8, XT1200Z Super Ténéré, and YZF-R125 for the new season.
