Yamaha Rossi Replica R1 - May 4, 2009, 12:14 PM

Official Rossi replica Yamaha R1 released

By Phil West

01 May 2009 09:53
If this year’s crossplane crank Yamaha R1 wasn’t already tempting enough, Yamaha has now released factory MotoGP replica versions in the liveries of reigning world MotoGP champion Valentino Rossi and team mate and Japanese GP winner Jorge Lorenzo.


The bad news, however, is that the bikes are being produced by Yamaha France, so are not available in the UK and, worse, just four examples are being made available.


Each bike faithfully replicates the Rossi and Lorenzo’s racebike colourschemes and in France will cost €19,990 (or a whopping £17,850 at current exchange rates, although that’s actually only £3800 More than the standard bike in France).


As an added sweetener, a Rossi or Lorenzo replica helmet comes as part of the deal...

hahah....the "replica" bikes look like shit period. I mean at least add some sort of special tech to the bike like with the LE if you're going to have a "special" relica bike (not sure if they ever did in the past either)...

But of the two replicas I'd ride Lorenzos before Rossi's....something about the number looks cleaner on his bike. And if you're gonna do a rossi bike you need all vinyls including the rear one.


What do you value more? Life or Image?

i like em....
I wonder if it was for sale globably how many would buy the Lorenzo bike over a Rossi replica?

I like the color scheme mostly....and yes it needs a solo seat bad.
and need to dump the big cans for carbon Akrapavic cans, black rearsets, and a few more items.

The chinese repica company on E Bay will have this by late summer

Yeah, If it's for the street......it would clean the lines up on the bike and give it more of a track look but still keep it legal...
