17.09.2021: Yamaha Motor Europe is excited to announce that in celebration of Yamaha Motor Co.’s 60 years of Grand Prix motorcycle road racing, it will run special liveries at the Barcelona round of the 2021 FIM Superbike World Championship and the FIM Endurance Word

Yamaha Motor Europe is excited to announce that in celebration of Yamaha Motor Co.’s 60 years of Grand Prix motorcycle road racing, it will run special liveries at the Barcelona round of the 2021 FIM Superbike World Championship and the FIM Endurance Word Championship’s Bol D’or.

At the French GP in 1961, Yamaha began its Grand Prix racing journey and has since gone on to become one of motorcycle racing’s most renowned and successful brands.

After winning its first GP in 1963, Yamaha has since taken 517 wins and 82 riders’, constructors’ and teams’ titles combined, and earlier this year announced its MotoGP commitments until at least 2026. Yamaha has also run many of Grand Prix racing’s most successful riders, including Valentino Rossi, Kenny Roberts, Wayne Rainey, Phil Read and Giacomo Agostini.

To commemorate six decades of Yamaha presence at the pinnacle of racing, Pata Yamaha with Brixx WorldSBK and the GRT Yamaha WorldSBK Team will run a special white and red livery for the WorldSBK round at Barcelona.

The GMT94 Yamaha WorldSSP Supported Team will also don the colours in the FIM Supersport World Championship class. Meanwhile, the YART Yamaha Official EWC Team will be racing with Yamaha’s 60th anniversary livery in FIM EWC.

Alongside the livery, the riders will also be wearing special racing leathers, gloves and boots, while Yamaha’s personnel will also be kitted out in red and white team clothing.



Andrea Dosoli
Yamaha Motor Europe, Road Racing Manager

“Over the last 60 years, Yamaha has been one of the main players in Grand Prix motorcycle road racing and we’re all very proud of this incredible history. Today, we can look back fondly on the great success achieved together, running some of the biggest names in this sport, and how we have been able to expand our racing activities to all corners of motorcycle racing.

This livery is a salute to where it all began, at the French Grand Prix in 1961, and we look forward to seeing the red and white colours return to our Yamaha R1 bikes in WorldSBK and EWC, as well as our Yamaha R6 in WorldSSP. We would like to use this moment to thank all of our fans, supporters, and staff that have made this all possible.

Thank you to all our sponsors, we are grateful that they have agreed to be a part of this one-off livery with us, and a special thanks goes to Remo Gobbi at Pata Snack for his continued support and collaboration.”
