Here’s a nice little video that’s just been put out by Yamaha Racing.


It shows the R1 undergoing very early pre-season testing ahead of the World Superbike campaign which starts next year.

In 2016 Yamaha makes its return to WSB in the hands of Sylvain Guintoli and Alex Lowes, but Yamaha has now revealed that the bike has been doing WSB race-prep laps since March.

Here’s the footage of the test at the shakedown test at Circuit d’Alcarras earlier this year.
