Yamaha Press: Message from Hiroyuki Yanagi, President of Yamaha

Home / MotoGP / Yamaha Press: Message from Hiroyuki Yanagi, President of Yamaha

yamaha-presidentOn behalf of the Yamaha Motor group, I wish to offer my heartfelt congratulations to Jorge Lorenzo on winning the 2015 MotoGP World Championship title.

I also wish to express my sincere gratitude to all of the fans, sponsors, and everyone involved in the championship campaign that have supported Lorenzo and the Yamaha team throughout the season.

This season’s title win marks the third MotoGP World Championship title in Jorge Lorenzo’s career, and it also marks Yamaha’s 17th Rider title in the pinnacle class of world championship motorcycle road racing.

It makes me tremendously happy that we have been able to win not only the MotoGP title but also numerous other top category titles and race victories in this 60th anniversary year of our company’s founding, and that we have been able to share the Kando of these victories with people around the world.

In the final stages of the season, we saw the full and combined potential of the riders, their machines, and the Yamaha team staff and management at work, and we had a thrilling season-long title race staged by our riders Jorge Lorenzo and Valentino Rossi. I believe this is what truly makes racing so exciting, and it is one of the forms our “Revs your Heart” brand slogan takes.

I look forward to even greater successes in the 2016 season to come.

    Something else. This Yamaha director should have a closed meeting with his Spanish fly and tell home to keep his pie hole shut while the other was going on…. Doesn't affect his bottom line I get it. Still total bull shit… I say Rossi should put the wall back up. Let the Spanish fly set his own bike up with the new tires see where that leads him…. Let's remember if it's wasn't for Rossi Yamaha would still be getting its ass handed to them by Honda… No one else got that bike up to speed…. Ask Max
