Following on from the pictures of the Suzuki GSX-RR 2016 MotoGP bike, here’s some equally mega studio shots of the Yamaha YZR-M1.


The 17 inch wheels, some minor cosmetics and more power look like part of a raft of changes to the bike for this year although the majority are more internal – like the spec ECU from Magneti Marelli

Nice pictures though. these will make some kickass wallpaper on your computer or phone.
