Lorenzo to ride with Lupin III livery at Motegi

Lorenzo to ride with Lupin III livery at Motegi

To celebrate the A-Style Grand Prix of Japan this Sunday, Jorge Lorenzo´s Fiat Yamaha 800cc prototype will carry an unusual and original livery.

For Sunday´s action at Motegi Jorge Lorenzo´s YZR-M1 will sport the image of comic-book hero Arsene Lupin III, the celebrated `Gentleman Thief´ made famous in the Japanese Manga series created by Kazuhiko Kato, or `Monkey Punch´.

The celebratory fairing is the creation of the team´s title sponsor Fiat and the image will also appear on a limited series of Fiat 500 cars, due for release in the second half of 2009.

Lorenzo´s M1 will be unveiled in pit lane at the Motegi circuit at 9.30am Japanese time on Sunday 28th September 2008.
