This is the case of the recently launched “YZF-R15M Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP Edition”, which we have known thanks to our colleagues at Supermoto8. A frame full of sporting genetics inherited directly from the machines with which the Japanese firm competes in the Motorcycle World Championship.

At this point one wonders what has happened to this type of editions in our country. I still remember when the main brands launched special liveries on their sports frames, and even 50 and 125 cc scooters, inspired by the colors that their racing motorcycles wore.
