Below is a message from Mr. Hiroyuki Yanagi, President, CEO and Representative Director of Yamaha Motor Co….

I am very pleased to announce that Yamaha has won the 2010 MotoGP “Triple Crown” of Rider, Team and Manufacturer titles for the third year in a row, following our 2008 and 2009 Triple Crowns.

As in years past, we feel that this great achievement was made possible by the strong support of Yamaha fans around the world and the corporate sponsors that have backed our teams. For this support, I would like to express our heartfelt appreciation.

I want to say congratulations to Jorge Lorenzo on winning his first MotoGP Championship title! I also wish to express our gratitude to the riders and staff that competed rigorously in the world’s premier class of road racing with the Yamaha YZR-M1.

To Valentino Rossi, who will be competing for another manufacturer next season, “I wish to convey my gratitude for your tremendous effort in these years with Yamaha.

Although you will be among our rivals next year, we sincerely wish you the best in all your future endeavors”.

Yamaha will continue to take on the challenge of competing in the great arenas of motor sport to help create more of the excitement and deep satisfaction we call Kando*.

We hope you will continue to support and cheer for Yamaha.

*Kando is a Japanese word for the simultaneous feeling of deep satisfaction and intense excitement that people experience when they encounter something of exceptional value.
