Yamaha announces the MotoGP Scooter Supplier deal

Yamaha is proud to announce a two-year deal with MotoGP series promoter Dorna that has seen the Japanese motorcycling giant become the Scooter Supplier of the MotoGP World Championship.

The agreement, which was sealed on the eve of the opening round of the 2005 season – held in Jerez, Spain – includes Yamaha supplying the championship organizer Dorna with a fleet of limited edition 50cc BW's scooter which will be used through the 2005 and 2006 seasons.

Yamaha Motor Europe's Manager of the Power Two-Wheeler Marketing and Sales Division, Robert Landman, presented the new fleet of MotoGP liveried BW's to Dorna CEO Carmelo Ezpeleta at the Jerez MotoGP event.

The limited edition MotoGP BW's livery features the official MotoGP logo, race-inspired colour scheme as well as track maps of each circuit featured on the 2005 and 2006 seasons. In addition, the liquid-cooled unit also boasts a carbon-fibre replica seat and trick instrument dash layout.

Production replicas of the Yamaha MotoGP Scooter will be on sale from June.
