Fast forward to 2021, and Yamaha’s Grand Prix 60th Anniversary YZR-M1 calls on the traditional white/red design of the 1980 YZR500 for inspiration. We revealed this special YZR-M1 to the world on March 10 at the Official Pre-season MotoGP test in Qatar with Yamaha test rider Cal Crutchlow on board.
Along with the World GP 60th Anniversary colour scheme, each WGP Anniversary model also includes gold wheels, gold forks, Yamaha factory race-bike gold tuning fork emblems, black levers and special commemorative badging on the airbox cover.
Also returning to the Yamaha supersport lineup for 2022 is the standard edition Yamaha YZF-R3 in an updated Midnight Black and Team Yamaha Blue colour option with graphic detailing and accents more closely aligned with the distinctive styling of the new 2022 Yamaha YZF-R7, including matt blue and cyan blue accents throughout. Yamaha’s renowned entry-level supersport bike features bold R-series styling, light weight and a high-revving 321cc liquid-cooled inline twin-cylinder engine.
The standard edition Yamaha YZF-R1 also returns in a similar Team Yamaha Blue colour scheme plus Performance Black. The ultimate high performance sportbike boasts advanced MotoGP-derived electronics and powerful crossplane 998cc CP4 engine.
Also returning to the Yamaha supersport lineup for 2022 is the ultra-high tech Yamaha R1M, now featuring a new colour design further accentuating the full carbon fibre front fairing and aluminium fuel tank—with just a touch more blue added to the side fairing.
