Yamaha FZ-07 DT Concept
Babe DeMay has been running a GNC Yamaha out of his own pocket this season. First year pro Dominic Colindres came home a fantastic fourth on their bike at the most recent GNC round, the Roar on the Shore, Delaware Half-mile (watch the race on Fanschoice.tv).
Are Yamaha actually going to make an official team effort or hedge their bets like so many of the US importers do with flat track? I hope the former, if I had to bet, I'd say the latter. I hope my cynicism is unfounded.
Cycleworld.com says Yamaha are threatening track testing. Informed racewatchers already say Yamaha US golden boy JD Beach will be on it at the 2016 X Games.
I've heard talk of Indian joining the GNC but I haven't seen an official announcement. Can anyone point us to one? G
