The blur of the asphalt is highlighted by the single broken line which now appears solid. The wind screams around you as you cut through it like an aerodynamic experiment in perfect harmony with your bike. You are in control while all around you appears chaos.
For you there is no greater thrill than the ultimate in technological performance. The supreme combination of power, agility and adrenaline. In short, THE RUSH!
The perfection of performance is always just around the next corner; ride a Yamaha and you’re sure to have the inside track every time.
