New Yamaha Race Blu paintjob

1 of 12

This new Race Blu paintjob seen here on the Yamaha YZF-R1 is the highlight of a series of colour changes for many of the 2013 Yamahas with no mechanical changes at all.

Race Blu, which comprises blue and matt grey bodywork with blue wheels and subtle white graphics was revealed by the MotoGP team at this weekend’s Misano round of the racing series and will be a permanent feature in the range from now on. The colourscheme extends to the YZF-R6 and YZF125-R too.

Other colour changes include the XTZ1200 Tenere, WR125, WR125X, kids off-road bike PW50, XV1900 and XVS1300 cruisers and WR450F.
