New R1 LE gets Rossi’s Fiat Yamaha MotoGP team graphics; R6 gets minor updates to boost power
Yamaha Motor Corp USA released info on its new ’10 models today, with an R1 LE model in Valentino Rossi/Fiat Yamaha MotoGP graphics heading the list. The new livery is basically the same as the MotoGP team bikes, with sponsor logos, Rossi’s famous “46” number on the nose fairing, and “The Doctor” stickers on the windscreen; there is also a replica of Rossi’s signature on top of the fuel tank. Mechanically, however, the R1 LE is identical to the standard model—so that means no Ohlins suspension and forged aluminum wheels as with the previous R1 LE edition in ’06. But the flip side to that omission is that the price is much more reasonable, with the ’10 R1 LE listing for $14,500. The standard model will be available in Raven, Pearl White, and Team Yamaha Blue/White motifs with a starting MSRP of $13,290.
