Yamaha to provide official MotoGP Scooter for two more years

Yamaha will continue to be the official Scooter Supplier of the MotoGP World Championship after extending their agreement with series promoter Dorna for another two seasons.

Yamaha will continue to be the official Scooter Supplier of the MotoGP World Championship after extending their agreement with series promoter Dorna for another two seasons. The Japanese motorcycling giant has supplied Dorna with limited edition 50cc BW scooters since the beginning of the 2005 season and for the new campaign they will refresh their Paddock Scooter fleet with 15 units of the popular Jog RR 50cc model to add to a further 15 units of the BW.

Mr. Morimoto, General Manager PTW (powered two wheeler) of Yamaha Motor Europe, handed over the new fleet to Dorna CEO Carmelo Ezpeleta during the MotoGP Official Test at Jerez. The special edition livery features the brand new official MotoGP logo, a race-inspired black and white colour scheme and track maps of each circuit featured on the 2007 calendar.

"We are delighted to continue our association with Yamaha as official Scooter supplier to the MotoGP World Championship," commented Mr Ezpeleta. "As well as their outstanding performance levels on the racetrack, Yamaha have proven to deliver a highly valued and reliable service to staff and guests in the paddock with their scooters. The new Jog model looks fantastic and I'm sure it will prove to be just as popular both in the paddock and on the road."

In addition to providing officials and guests of the MotoGP World Championship with practical and stylish transport within the paddock for the next two years, Yamaha have also secured the rights to produce and sell production replicas of the licensed MotoGP Scooter at all Yamaha dealers across Europe. The limited edition Jog RR 50cc will be available in 2007 and the contract is worldwide exclusive.
