Yamaha officially announces full seamless gearbox for 2015

Yamaha officially announces that they will be using a full seamless shift gearbox for the 2015 season at a press conference in Japan.


During the conference, Takaaki Kimura, Vice President of Yamaha Motor Co. Ltd., announced the use of the full seamless gearbox on the YZR-M1 for the 2015 MotoGP Championship.

While developing the 2015 YZR-M1, Yamaha focused on further technical upgrades such as a full seamless shift (both upshift and downshift), which is the core technology for improvements in braking.

"During the second Sepang test, we were able to confirm the performance of our seamless gearbox", commented the Vice President of Yamaha Motor, Takaaki Kimura. “However, we must keep on developing the chassis and electronics to utilize it to its full potential. We will continue to work on the setup at the upcoming test in Qatar, while aiming for the victory at the first round of the 2015 season in Qatar later this month."
