2022 R1 World GP 60th Anniversary

Winning colours, racing heritage.

Yamaha’s first international road race was at the French GP back in May 1961. The first race win came in 1963. And by 1964 Yamaha had claimed its first World Championship. Since then, the factory’s race bikes have powered to more than 500 Grand Prix wins. The special World GP 60th Anniversary livery is marking 60 years of Yamaha competing at the highest level of motorcycle racing.

The R1 World GP 60th Anniversary features iconic red ‘speed block’ graphics and a white fairing – combined with a 60th anniversary emblem, yellow front plate and golden wheels – that are inspired by Yamaha’s original factory race bikes that were taken to victory by legendary riders including Read, Saarinen, Agostini and Roberts. They’re an integral part of Yamaha’s history. And by riding the R1 World GP 60th Anniversary you can be a part of this very special celebration.
