Fiat Yamaha´s 2009 project presented online on February 2nd

Yamaha factory team collaborate with motogp.com for first online look at new YZR-M1.

The machine with which Fiat Yamaha will defend their team and individual rider titles in 2009, the YZR-M1, will be unveiled next Monday (February 2nd) in a special presentation available for viewing on motogp.com.

MotoGP World Champion Valentino Rossi and teammate Jorge Lorenzo will feature alongside their 800cc bike, and interviews with the duo, Team Managers Davide Brivio & Daniele Romagnoli and Yamaha Motor Racing Managing Director Lin Jarvis will be available free-of-charge on motogp.com from 12pm CET.

For Lorenzo, the event is also a chance to reveal the `number 99´ design that he has chosen for the 2009 campaign. The Spaniard has left behind the 48 plate with which he has competed for the vast majority of his racing career, and promises an eye-catching new motif for his sophomore year in MotoGP.

Technical details of the YZR-M1 and the Fiat Yamaha team structure will also be made available and summarised on motogp.com.

A chance to see the bike and riders in person will come at the official team press conference proper on March 27th, the day before the MotoGP riders take to the track at the Official MotoGP Test in Jerez.
