1/12 Scale Motorcycle Series No.115

Yamaha's Legendary Block Pattern
Yamaha experienced a resurgence in 2004 and won their first MotoGP Rider and Team Championships since 1992. They were determined to defend these titles in 2005, which marked the 50th anniversary of Yamahafs founding, and also set their sights on capturing the Manufacturersf title.

Entering its 4th year in MotoGP, the YZR-M1 was improved for 2005 and featured a 4-stroke inline 4-cylinder 990cc engine that offered greater top speed and fuel efficiency, a fuel tank with low center of gravity, and a rear suspension with the shock attached to the crankcase. Valentino Rossi claimed the Ridersf Championship with this bike and it also helped Yamaha win the Team and Manufacturer Championships. A special white with red strobe gblock patternh livery was applied for the Valencia race, which was featured on Yamaha factory team bikes from the 1970s to the 1990s. Valentino Rossi rode this specially-colored YZR-M1 to 3rd place to cap a truly memorable season for Yamaha.
