Yamaha launch French-only Fiat R1 replica

Do some free advertising for Fiat Yamaha and get charged almost £18,000 for the pleasure

Would you pay almost £18,000 for that?

YAMAHA has released Team Fiat MotoGP replica versions of their new YZF-R1.

The paint schemes, revealed last week exclusively on motorevue.com are of Valentino Rossi and team-mate, Jorge Lorenzo.

Available in France only, the bikes will cost €19,990 (£17,850).

Too expensive by far, we say.
