Yamaha reveals 2018 MotoGP livery in Madrid

Written by  Jan 25, 2018

Yamaha MotoGP had their Team Presentation in Madrid on Wednesday, with Izaskun Ruiz and Dylan Gray hosting the event as riders Valentino Rossi and Maverick Viñales revealed their colours for 2018.

The new livery moves towards more blue and white as a colour scheme, and was revealed towards the end of the presentation.

Ahead of the big reveal, Massimo Meregalli - Movistar Yamaha MotoGP Team Director - was the man charged with analysing the season just gone and gearing up for 2018.

“It was really important to test in Valencia and then in Sepang,” began the Italian, “because we could compare the same items on two different tracks with different conditions."

"At the end of these five days, we could decide the base of the bike that Valentino and Maverick will now start testing in Sepang in a few days.”

That first test of 2018 begins on Sunday at the Malaysian venue where, as Meregalli pointed out, Yamaha put in a private test towards the end of 2017. Now, work will concentrate on reconfirming and developing – with some specifics to work on.

“In Sepang we need to confirm what we found in November, then we’ll start developing the bike with new parts from Japan,” he explained.

“And we’ll work on the electronics, which we couldn’t do in November, so I expect us to improve in that area. Last year we suffered a lot in that area and our main goal is to solve that.”
