The new design features a Yamaha blue corporate racing color, and was inspired “from both the famous Yamaha speed block design and also one of the colours of the current production model YZF-R1.”
The Yamaha World Superbike team will be using a new livery in 2011, and will also have two new riders with Melandri and Laverty. Melandri, a previous 250cc World Champion, is coming to the World Superbike series after racing in the MotoGP. Laverty spent last year in the World Supersport division.
The start of the World Superbike series is just a few weeks away, and the Yamaha World Superbike team will join the rest of the grid at Phillip Island for the final testing session on February 21st. The season will start the next week in Australia on February 27th.
