Ben Spies Hits the Track on 2012 Yamaha R1

Thursday, September 29, 2011
With the impending release of Yamaha’s lightly updated YZF-R1 sportbike (find out more in the 2012 Yamaha R1 Gets Traction Control article) it has created this video in which ’09 World Superbike champ and current MotoGP athlete Ben Spies rips around some awesome European racetrack during a staged public track day. Although the video doesn’t share much about the new specifications of the motorcycle it is entertaining and worth a view.

having been passed by an AMA pro (like I was standing still!) at a track day last year, I got a chuckle out of this one.

Yamaha marketing BS. And Spies would be driving a clapped-out mid-'80s Chevy Van? Right.
