Post image for Yamaha Unveils New MotoGP Livery (with video)

It’s common knowledge both Ben Spies (my favorite) and Jorge Lorenzo have a great shot at the world title again. Not that the competition won’t be fierce. Casey is looking wicked fast on the Honda and Simoncelli has set down fastest lap times. It will be closely contested.

So far Yamaha hasn’t announced a sponsor. This is unusual due to Yamaha’s good chances at the world championship and last years success. We’ll see if this changes Yamaha’s development budget.

Usually a bike will be named after it’s sponsor. For example: Pramac Ducati or Sterilgarda Yamaha. Basically advertising for the sponsor.
