Winning technology, by Jorge

Another year, another Moto GP triple crown. Spanish flier Jorge Lorenzo led the boys home on his YZR-M1 and the Fiat Yamaha Team once again scooped the holy grail of rider, team and manufacturer titles… for a third year on the trot. For Yamaha winning is the catalyst that spurs on our technical gurus at the Iwata dream factory. Because all the information that race teams generate is painstakingly fed back to the factory where it filters down to Yamahas on the showroom floor. New technologies that are refined on the cutting edge such as variable power maps, traction control and chip controlled throttle have applications that are far wider than the rarefied atmosphere of Moto GP. Take our new Super Ténéré adventure tourer for example, which features a host of safety features that have been developed at the race track. Because what helps keeps Jorge at the front of the pack can also help when you apply the throttle on a dirt road. So if you ever wondered why your superbike or super scooter goes, handles and stops so well – not to mention its reliability and build quality - it’s because what we learn at the race track makes a major contribution to the development of all our products. This year, Yamaha has refined existing models and introduces some entirely new road bikes such as the YZF-R15 sportster and the YW125 BeeWee and XC125 Vity scooters that are designed to offer the best introduction to the world of two wheels. Just remember that whatever Yamaha you choose, race winning DNA comes standard.
