Video: Yamaha 1000cc M1 in testing

Hear the sound of the 1000cc Yamaha M1

YAMAHA were a little behind their rivals as the testing of the 1000cc M1 was delayed by the natural disaster that befell Japan.

Opting to miss the post-race test at Mugello, the bike was running shake-down tests last month, as captured in the above YouTube video and ambling down the pitlane, before the 2012 bike is handed over to Jorge Lorenzo and Ben Spies to lap the Brno circuit on Monday.

The footage gives some insight into the sound of the incoming 1000cc generation as the Honda entry has also been captured testing in Japan.
