Rossi's naked Yamaha M1

1 of 1

This is what Valentino Rossi¹s YZR-M1 looks like stripped of all sponsor logos and painted in Yamaha corporate racing colours.    

The bike is mechanically identical, but Yamaha chose to paint it and display it at Tokyo right next to a white YZF-R1 road bike to try and show the link between the two.
