The exclusive new "Xenter MotoGP" was unveiled by Yamaha Motor Europe at this weekend’s Gran Premio Aperol di San Marino e della Riviera di Rimini in Misano, where it makes its paddock debut.

Mr Shun Miyazawa, Yamaha's PTW Product Manager, commented: "Yamaha already offer the popular Jog RR MotoGP, and with the new Xenter MotoGP we are happy to extend our relationship with Dorna for the first time into the 125cc and 150cc scooter classes. This sporty new model adds MotoGP flavour to the daily commute!"

Pau Serracanta, Managing Director of Dorna’s commercial area is excited that Yamaha has added to its portfolio in the paddock and strengthened its involvement in this exciting championship: "I am very pleased with this new agreement we have reached with Yamaha. It shows that the alliance between Dorna and Yamaha is fully consolidated after many years of working together and because it signals yet another step forward. An agreement with a leading manufacturer like Yamaha confirms that partnerships within a premier-class racing series like MotoGP result in innovations in their road-going products. Achieving world titles merely reaffirms that technical advances are transferred to their motorcycles and scooters, with customers benefitting on the street from what is tried and tested out on track. The new 125cc Yamaha MotoGP Xenter proves this."
