Yamaha Motor Europe renews fleet of official MotoGP™ paddock scooters to Dorna Sports

Yamaha Motor Europe will once again supply a fleet of official paddock scooters to Dorna Sports, the exclusive commercial and TV rights holder for MotoGP™.

Yamaha has been the Official MotoGP scooter supplier to Dorna Sports since 2005, and during this period the two companies have established a strong working relationship. For 2013 Yamaha are supplying a fleet of 25 units of the latest Aerox R, a high-specification 50cc 2-stroke scooter which features R-series supersport-style bodywork and a new sports chassis.

"MotoGP is the world’s premier motorcycle racing championship and Yamaha is proud to be associated with such an exciting and vibrant brand," commented Jan Hendrik Krijnen, Division Manager, Yamaha Motor Europe. "The dynamic new Aerox R is designed to appeal to young riders looking for cutting edge style and race-inspired looks, and so it is the natural choice for a MotoGP paddock bike." 

The fleet of 25 Yamaha Aerox R scooters will be used by Dorna staff at each of the 18 MotoGP rounds which run from April through to November 2013. Dorna Sports Managing Director Pau Serracanta said: "Dorna and Yamaha have worked closely together now for many years, and we are happy that we will have the use of Yamaha scooters once again in 2013. These Yamaha scooters allow us to get around the crowded paddock and circuit facilities as quickly as possible, enabling us to ensure everything is running on schedule."

Each of the 25 Aerox R models will feature special graphics and logos to celebrate their official MotoGP paddock scooter role, and during the coming season these sporty 50cc scooters will become a familiar sight as they transport Dorna staff around the busy paddock and circuit facilities.

Yamaha presented the Aerox R scooters to Dorna in an official handover at the Circuito de Jerez on Friday.
