Yamaha Factory Racing Reveal Special ‘Race-Blu’ Livery in Misano

Race-Blu’ livery also available on YZF-R series production bikes for 2013!

The Yamaha Factory Racing Team will run a special ‘Race-Blu’ livery for the Misano and Aragon Grand Prix race weekends. The unique livery, designed by Italian designer Aldo Drudi, features a contrasting combination of Yamaha Blue and matt grey bodywork, and will be run to celebrate the launch of the exclusive new ‘Race Blu’ Series on selected Yamaha production models.

The MotoGP bikes’ new design has been created to reinforce Yamaha’s historic association with racing blue, harking back to the racing liveries of the early 1980’s Yamaha teams. Alongside the two-tone blue and matt grey colour scheme, the Yamaha YZR-M1 will also feature matching blue wheels.  Continue reading “Yamaha Factory Racing Reveal Special ‘Race-Blu’ Livery in Misano”

2009 Yamaha YZF-R125 M1 Valentino Rossi Replica

I found this picture randomly after searching for more info about the 125Z M1 livery. This is a good bike for European riders since the bike is only distributed there. It is a 4-stroke bike though. Giving the bike a livery scheme base on the Yamaha YZR-M1 adds up another point of desire factor to it. At that time in 2009, Rossi is still the rider for Yamaha team.

2012 Yamaha YZF-R125 WGP 50th Anniversary

Riders in UK are supposedly happy right now to know that there is YZF-R125 in special livery which is the WGP 50th Anniversary edition. The combination of the white, red and a little black are nicely done to make this bike looks better in time. The stance of this bike are full of machoism and the special edition livery really spice it up to the next level of excitement (at least in terms of looks). I would buy this if only it makes to our shore here in Malaysia.

Yamaha FZ-150i, YZF R15 and YZF R125




FZ-150i = YZF-R15. If you look carefully, you can see that both have same frame and same engine. And look closer, you’ll even the sports rim is the same design.
FZ-150i is what we get here in Malaysia, YZF-R15 is what Indians get in India and YZF-R125 is the 4-stroker the Brits got in UK.
See how they are matched up against each other with a lot of pictures after the jump.

The images below is YZF-R15 that is the same model as FZ-150i distributed in India.

Below is the other version of the bike. YZF-R125.
