Fabio Quartararo and Franco Morbidelli presented their Yamaha for the 2023 MotoGP season in Indonesia a few minutes ago – and the design has actually been refreshed.

Yamaha started on Tuesday morning with MotoGP factory riders Fabio Quartararo (23) and Franco Morbidelli (28) and showed up in the Indonesian capital Jakarta as part of the “3S Dealer Meetings”, the largest meeting of dealers of the Yamaha network, as the first MotoGP Team the motorcycle and the design for the 2023 season.

Gray accents have been added to the color scheme in place since 2019 – the combination of Yamaha blue and main sponsor Monster black. The pilots’ leather suits have also been given a new coat of paint in the appropriate camouflage look. Sponsor Beta, a toolmaker and longtime partner of the Yamaha factory team, is now also placed prominently on the front fairing.

“A little more aggressive, a little younger,” is how Yamaha race director Lin Jarvis describes Aldo Drudi’s design, which will also be used in the Motocross World Championship as part of the global collaboration with Monster Energy.

The camouflage was not chosen randomly, they wanted to be more aggressive. Because: “We will fight, we will go to battle, we will rise to the challenge”, announced Jarvis.

Takahiro Sumi left no doubt about this assertion: “Of course, the goal is to win back the world title this season,” said the general manager of the motorsports development division Yamaha Motor Co., Ltd. release.

Sumi continues: “Since testing in Valencia, we have worked tirelessly and very hard to further develop our M1. We have made changes to almost every area of ​​the bike, especially in terms of improving top speed, this is top priority. In the end, the most important thing is the harmony between the driver and the machine. So we are now preparing for the first test in February and putting all the pieces together to build the best package for the driver through intensive communication.”

It also means that some technical changes can still be made to the YZR-M1 before the Sepang test.

Formula 1 engine wizard Luca Marmorini has been working on the engine for about a year. It is known from Formula 1 that its group consists of six to seven engineers and engine designers.
