Race fans attending this year’s Motorcycle Live should definitely schedule a stop at the Yamaha stand – the manufacturer will be celebrating 50 years of Grand Prix road racing with a 415 square metre display of machinery representing five decades on the track.

Since May 1961, Yamaha has won 36 riders’ world titles and scored over 450 Grand Prix victories. The display – created by Yamaha Motor Europe – will commemorate the milestones and celebrate the stars of the manufacturer’s racing past and present, from the very first world champion Phil Read, to 2010 MotoGP title winner Jorge Lorenzo. It will also showcase how Yamaha’s racing technology, developed over fifty years of competition, has filtered through to the road-going models.

Yamaha 2011

Away from the track, Yamaha has been providing bikes that ‘go beyond’ for decades – not least through its range of adventure style machines capable of conquering continents, such as the Yamaha Super-Ténéré. For this reason, Yamaha will once again sponsor the Escape Zone, which provides show visitors with everything they need to plan the motorcycle trip of a lifetime.

Yamaha will also be lending its support in the T+MX and DBR Off-Road Zone, where visitors over 14 years of age can hit the dirt aboard one of the manufacturer’s machines. The Yamaha Off-Road Experience is run by a team of instructors, led by former Motocross Grand Prix rider Barry Johnson, who will offer expert tuition on a specially constructed indoor circuit.
