Yamaha YZF-R1 Giacomo Agostini ‘Ago’ Special Edition


Giacomo Agostini, the 15 time World Champion motorcycle legend has signed the special edition Yamaha YZF-R1 ‘Ago’ for an auction for Papageno Foundation in Netherlands to help the autistic children in needs. 

The bike comes with special parts like this Akrapovic exhaust system fitted as unveiled in Hilton Hotel in Amsterdam until December 24th. The YZF-R1 carries the overall theme of the Yamaha 50th Anniversary spectacular red livery with white base with the prominent yellow number 1 racer plate which is related to Giacomo Agostini winning bike.

There have never been a shortage of YZF-R1 in special edition colour and livery and this make this bike one of the most desirable bike for collector and fans like us.

The fuel tank top features the Giacomo Agostini signature on the red stripe just near the meter console.

The red colour and white base livery works really well with the yellow colour on the center of bike’s head lamp and on the side of it. It looks the business.

Bidding for the auction can be done at www.R1-Agostini.nl which is managed by Netherlands BV-Automotive from Sunday, February 12th until Sunday, February 26th 2012.

The auction winner will also get a special edition AGV Ago helmet along with the bike to take home. Will the auction winner use the bike for riding or is it a display item only?
