2010 Fiat Yamaha YZR M1 Unveiled at Sepang 2010 Fiat Yamaha YZR M1 Rossi 560x373

MotoGP teams have flocked to Sepang this week to test their bikes on the Malaysian track in preparation for the 2010 season. Fiat-Yamaha was on hand to unveil their 2010 YZR-M1, along with riders Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo. Despite Yamaha’s shuddering sales figures, there doesn’t seem to be too many drastic changes in the factory team’s camp, but perhaps the lack of change is indicative of Yamaha’s financial position.

Speaking at the unveiling, Managing Director for Yamaha Racing, Lin Jarvis said, “The MotoGP program is a very important brand image promotion activity and the racing requires us to demonstrate all of our company’s power in engineering, organizational and passion if we are to be successful at the top level. He continued with, “we are extremely fortunate to have retained all of our existing loyal sponsors and even to have added a few more to the team.” Enough of that, video and photos after the jump.

    Why is Valentino Rossi not running the number 1 plate? Did I miss something?

  3. johnrdupree says:

    He never runs the #1 plate, only the 46. I believe it was his dad’s number back in the day.

  4. patron says:

    he runs the number one on the back of his shoulder
