Pirelli and Yamaha are, in their respective fields, two brands of excellence recognized for the high level of technology and performance offered by their products.
The technical partnership between these two companies is based on a historical, fruitful collaboration that started in the 1980’s and has grown in important ways since then.
The latest strong collaboration is reflected by the new Yamaha YZF-R1, a totally revolutionary bike which uses its highly evolved crossplane engine to tame 200 horsepower. The Pirelli DIABLO™ Supercorsa SP tires, derived purely from Superbike, are fitted as original equipment. They have been selected in 120/70 ZR17 front and 190/55 ZR17 rear sizes.
To celebrate the ongoing success and global partnership of Pirelli and Yamaha, a story has been created with the co-operation of the TV program “The Boat Show”. “The winning poker” video features the new supersport bikes from Iwata equipped with Pirelli, alongside the Pirelli PZero 1100 Cabin rib with two Yamaha F300 V6 outboard engines, all united by the same denominator which for many years, has been the slogan of Pirelli: “Power is nothing without control”.
