Valentino Rossi is coming back to Yamaha?

August 7th, 2012 9:54 pm by

I have been reading a lot of rumors about this in the news on many blogs. This time it is closer to be getting real as a Sportmediaset has announced that Rossi has signed two-year deal with Yamaha in their daily TV sports update. The news is said to be officially aired on August 15th.

I’m hoping we can see more Yamaha Limited Edition bikes with Rossi 46 livery soon as we always had in the years when Rossi is with Yamaha.

This new Ninja 250R set to be released by the end of this year for 2013 sales has been given a nice upgrades in terms of styling and in the engine department. The style are now much sharper and looks modern enough for any riders to take notice of it on the road. 250cc bikes is an important market for ASEAN countries since lots of the riders ride moped.

This year, Yamaha 135LC Hand Clutch 5-speed comes with a new additional colour that is red gray model. The livery looks like the previous black and white model that is available since 2011.

For this time, we can see that this 135LC 5-speed is no longer using IRC tyre and Enkei wheel. It has been replaced with Duro DM1198 tyre and the wheel has been replaced with Yamaha brand. I have checked out the bike and it seems that the tyre and wheel are looking high quality as we expect from Yamaha, but why no Enkei wheel anymore?  Read the rest of this entry »
