YAMAHA ANNOUNCES 2014 RACE BLU SERIES

Yamaha 2014 Race Blu Series

Yamaha 2014 Race Blu Series

Following the success of its sophisticated ‘Race Blu Series’ livery, Yamaha has updated this unique paint scheme for a range of 2014 models.

Inspired by the livery of the factory YZR-M1 race bikes ridden by Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo, Race Blu incorporates the traditional Yamaha deep blue with a dark metallic grey to enhance the sporty styling on its key sport models.

This contemporary and fresh paint scheme has been further enhanced for 2014 with the addition of anodised components, such as the front forks, on certain models as well as blue wheels.

Running alongside the traditional model colour schemes, this exclusive livery gives the Race Blu series models a unique and enhanced style that stands out from the crowd and wouldn’t look out of place in the race paddock.

Yamaha YZF-R1
Born from MotoGP technology, Yamaha’s flagship sportsbike has its track-bred look further emphasised with a dark metallic grey front cowl that transforms into deep metallic blue for the details, inner fairing panel, rear of the fuel tank and tail unit. The 43mm inverted forks have been anodised blue to further enhance their visual appeal while the wheels are painted Yamaha blue to compliment the overall colour scheme.

Yamaha YZF-R6
Yamaha’s leading supersport bike, which continues to dominate the Supersport World Championship, delivers the ultimate riding experience. However with its new Race Blu livery the YZF-R6 not only dominates on track, it wins on looks as well. The YZF-R6’s angular styling is further enhanced by the front cowl being split diagonally between dark metallic grey and Yamaha deep blue. This sharp contrast is then emphasised with Yamaha blue wheels, blue anodised forks and a grey front fender, while the seat unit and rear of the fuel tank display the traditional Yamaha blue colour.

Yamaha MT-09
Of course Yamaha’s brand new 3-cylinder MT-09 could not be missed out from the Race Blu series. Already creating a stir on the streets thanks to its deep metallic blue wheels offset by dark metallic grey bodywork, the brutal MT-09 in Race Blu encapsulates the raw soul and dynamic performance of this unique triple from Yamaha. From weekday urban riding to Sunday morning blasts, the MT-09 in Race Blu provides the perfect excuse to free your own dark side.

Yamaha FZ8 & Fazer8
The thrilling Yamaha FZ8 and Fazer8 models proudly display their sporty side with the Race Blu livery. The mean and moody naked FZ8 gains a dash of colour with anodised blue fork legs and a blue cylinder head cover while the rest of the bike remains a subtle dark metallic grey. Yamaha’s outstanding do-it-all machine, the Fazer8, has its sporty side further emphasised with anodised blue fork legs and a blue cylinder head cover, while the stylish dark metallic grey semi-fairing has Yamaha deep blue highlights.

Yamaha XJ6 Diversion F, XJ6 Diversion & XJ6
Yamaha’s XJ6-series of motorcycles also benefit from the updated Race Blu livery. The ever-popular XJ6’s minimal bodywork is painted in a classy dark metallic grey with black highlights, which is offset by the sporty looking deep blue wheels. The multi-functional XJ6 Diversion F now features a unique look with its deep blue wheels and dark metallic grey fuel tank, nose cowl and tail unit being bisected by its black fairing. The Diversion also benefits from deep blue wheels, dark metallic grey fuel tank, nose cowl and tail unit.
