2006 Yamaha YZR M1 990 V Rossi Specs And Review
2006 Yamaha YZR M1 990 V Rossi Specs And Review, For many fans of MotoGP, Valentino Rossi’s move to Yamaha’s return is welcome escape from the career-damaging Ducati Desmosedici. Perception, of course, is that the 1,000 cc Yamaha is not too different from the 800cc engine-era, and therefore re-branded Rossi for the tuning fork should mean instant success and the return of alien status is the same. When we have thoughts, we forget that in 2009 Rossi struggled to keep his team mate Jorge Lorenzo at bay on the same machine, and that in 2010, just before his leg injury, Rossi was behind Lorenzo in the Championship points (although the walls Yamaha is being built in a garage). Add in two long years at Ducati Corse, the death of Marco Simoncelli, and a new-generation GP riders who just discovered their full potential, and there is ample reason to believe why the return of Rossi to Yamaha in 2013 will not look like his first venture with a Japanese company , nine years ago.
I suspect the move to Yamaha would be a culture shock for the legions of fans of Rossi, who had switched to Ducati Rossi The Doctor thinking skills on two wheels, both on and off the track, could form the Italian engine into a more tolerable. The reality of course is that the bike does not develop overnight, and for Rossi to be competitive in 2004, Yamaha change must occur much earlier than the pen for contract signing Rossi.
