After the final 2010 Valencia MotoGP round, Italian Valentino Rossi says goodbye to his Yamaha M1 (and hello to his Ducati GP11); the Yamaha MotoGP bike that Rossi personally helped developed from a dead-loser to a dominate winner.

The Yamaha M1 is a liquid-cooled crossplane crankshaft inline four-cylinder, four-stroke with power of over 200 horsepower (147KW). Although not the fastest top-end motorcycle in the MotoGP paddock, the top speed is in excess of 200 mph.

The Yamaha transmission is a six-speed cassette-type gearbox, with alternative gear ratios available. The chassis is an aluminum twin tube delta box, multi-adjustable steering geometry / wheelbase / ride height with aluminum swingarm.

The M1 suspension is comprised of an Ohlins upside down front forks and Ohlins rear shock, all adjustable for pre-load, high and low-speed compression and rebound damping. Alternative rear suspension links available.

Wheels are Marchesini 16.5 front and 16.5 in the rear. Brakes are Brembo, two 320mm carbon front discs, two four-piston calipers. Single 220mm stainless steel rear disc, twin-piston caliper. Weight is 150 kg. (330 lbs.) in accordance with FIM MotoGP regulations.

Valentino Rossi finished third on his 117th and final MotoGP appearance in Spain for Yamaha, ending a seven-year partnership where VR46 enjoyed 46 wins on the Yamaha M1. "The Doctor" heads to Ducati for 2011.
