MotoGP Humor, Yamaha Style (Video)

Yamaha MotoGP Video

With 50 years of GP racing, Yamaha shared many laughs with the world. And the team continues to create laughter, such as this humorous video contrasting the old and new champions of MotoGP.

As Yamaha preps for Laguna Seca MotoGP this weekend, the team put together some more memories in the age of YouTube, with Yamaha Factory Racing’s Jorge Lorenzo and Ben Spies, and Tech 3’s Colin Edwards and Cal Crutchlow.

In the video, these modern MotoGP pilots discuss the new and old with living GP legends Kenny Roberts Sr, Eddie Lawson and Wayne Rainey.

Oh, and there’s a guest appearance by Fabio. You’ll also experience these famed racers in some 70s garb, including Converse sneakers, short shorts and wigs..yes, wigs.

As Yamaha says about the attached video, "here’s to 50 more years of memories to last a lifetime."
