YME and YART GYTR Pro Shop Unveil Official PETRONAS Yamaha Sepang Racing Team Replica R1

Yamaha Motor Europe (YME) and Yamaha Austria Racing Team (YART) GYTR Pro Shop has unveiled an official, limited edition replica of the PETRONAS Yamaha Sepang Racing Team YZR-M1, with which the team currently leads the 2020 MotoGP Team World Championship thanks to a sensational season start. 

Aboard the PYSRT YZR-M1 Franco Morbidelli and Fabio Quartararo have scored a total of 98 points from the first four GPs of the 2020 season, including two race wins from Fabio Quartararo. 

Commissioned by YART, supported by Yamaha Motor Europe and PETRONAS Yamaha Sepang Racing Team, the YART-engineered replica R1 comes with an array of high-performance upgrades to bring it closer to the specification of the Yamaha MotoGP bike on which it is based.

These updates include everything from a new light and durable Genuine Yamaha Technology for Racing (GYTR) carbon fairing kit and MotoGP winglets to the limited-edition PETRONAS Yamaha SRT livery, which is supplied by the same company that paint the team’s MotoGP race machines, delivering exceptional authenticity and exclusivity.

The replica also comes with an array of other unique features. The bike is equipped with high-performance Öhlins race suspension, including the FGRT 2 road & track front fork, TTX rear shock, a race specification steering damper and is fitted with a factory kit exhaust.

From GYTR, the PETRONAS Yamaha SRT replica features the latest rear quick-change system, to make replacing the rear wheel quicker following a tyre change, as well as racing footrests, ECU and quick action throttle, all essential components on Yamaha’s racing machines.

The brakes are manufactured by Brembo, including the high-quality GP4-RX callipers and T-Drive discs. The Italian company also provided the remote brake adjuster and clutch lever fitted to the bike. The bike will be supplied with Michelin race slicks fitted front and rear to the seven-spoke aluminium Marchesini wheels.

Alongside the replica bike itself, each customer will receive an exclusive package comprising a KYT Helmet, a PETRONAS Yamaha SRT polo shirt and the future opportunity for a VIP guest pass for the MotoGP round of their choice.

In commemoration of the 46th anniversary of the team’s title sponsor, PETRONAS, 46 PETRONAS Yamaha SRT replicas will be built, each with their own unique identification number engraved on the CNC machined top yoke.

The bikes will be available for delivery across Europe, and to register interest, or to order one of the limited-edition PETRONAS Yamaha SRT replica bikes, customers should complete the registration form on the YART GYTR Pro Shop website here.
