Yellow ‘speed block’ livery for Yamaha MotoGP in 2016? Sadly not.

Watch Yamaha unveil their 2016 MotoGP M1 live and see Rossi and Lorenzo pretend to bury the hatchet.

That’s probably doing them both a disservice to be honest. They’ve already shared an official Yamaha stage back in November at EICMA – almost immediately after the final round of the GP season and there aren’t two more professional riders in the paddock.

So don’t expect some sort of Tyson Fury interruption!

That said, there is usually something of note to take away from team reveals for the new season. Not least the official colours-cheme of the new bikes.

We would be lying if we told you that we weren’t hoping for the new Yamaha M1 to be painted in the finest yellow speedblock to celebrate their 60th anniversary, but that’s almost certainly hoping for too much.

We can all but hope to see a yellow-clad Rossi and Lorenzo being run out on a special occasion during the year, but looking at the teaser images from Yamaha’s own media feeds it’s looking like we can expect another racing Blue design from the current World Champions. The wheel rims on their twitter video are the main give-away.
