Yamaha Video Teases 2013 M1
Friday, March 15, 2013
The Factory Yamaha MotoGP
squad recently wrapped up testing at the all-new Circuit of the Americas. Next up for Jorge Lorenzo and Valentino Rossi
is the final official pre-season test at Jerez March 23-25. The team will reveal its 2013 livery the day prior.
Both Yamaha riders ran a grey livery at the COTA tests. The team has not sported a title branded sponsor on the livery since it was Fiat Yamaha, two years ago. Yamaha recently announced the Italian auto firm IVECO will remain an official sponsor of the team. IVECO logos were affixed to the tailsof the factory M1s for the final rounds of 2012. A team press release states: "The IVECO logo will appear on both Yamaha Factory Racing riders' YZR-M1s as well as on all team equipment."
The extent of the IVECO branding on the 2013 machinery will have to wait until next week. In the meantime, Yamaha has released a short teaser video.
