Want to get on some brand spanking new sportbikes from Yamaha? Well, in partnership with Yamaha Champions Riding School (YCRS), Yamaha will be offering free sporktbike demos to riders at select track-day events across the US.
The demos will feature the complete line of Yamaha sportbikes, including the all-new 2015 YZF-R1 and YZF-R3, as well as the YZF-R6, FZ-1, FZ-09 and FZ-07, according to a Yamaha press release.
The only draw back is you can't run a new Yamaha wide open, as the rides are paced laps behind YCRS instructors.
“YCRS was the obvious choice for Yamaha’s on-track sportbike demos,” said Martin Vivanco, Retail Sales Promotion Manager for Yamaha, in the release. “With their outstanding safety record, passion for Yamaha motorcycles and exceptional curriculum there is no better team to conduct on-track demos.”
“Yamaha wants riders to feel the bikes in the safest riding environment possible: A closed-course track. This is YCRS's domain and we're thrilled to have this program under our umbrella,” Nick Ienatsch, YCRS Senior Instructor, said in the statement.
Yamaha sportbike demos will be available initially at New Jersey Motorsports Park. There are plans to make the on-track demos available at additional facilities, including Pittsburgh International Race Complex, Virginia International Raceway, Road Atlanta, NCBike in North Carolina and Dominion Raceway in Virginia.
From October to March, YCRS is based on the West Coast, where demos will be available at Inde Motorsports Ranch in Arizona, Chuckwalla Valley Raceway in California, and Arizona Motorsports Park.
