2022 Yamaha YZF World GP -R1, YZF-R7, and YZF-R1 in special livery inspired by the first Yamaha GP road racers. From a technical standpoint, the three YZFs are identical to the standard version—these are styling exercises applied to high-performance motorcycles.

Students of the sport are familiar with the iconic chain-block livery that Yamaha used on many of its competition-ready motorcycles. The R1 and R7 have the Heritage White and Redline color combination, while the R3 produces the look in Heritage White and Rapid Red. The R3’s red is a lighter shade than the R1 and R7.

Additionally, the three models get commemorative badging on the tank and blacked-out levers. Fans of gold will appreciate the fork sliders, wheels, and tuning fork emblems as a sign for the 2022 Yamaha YZF World GP.

The –2022 Yamaha YZF World GP 60th Anniversary Edition is $500 more than the standard R1 and the YZR-R7 World GP 60th Anniversary Edition has a $300 premium. The YZF-R3 World GP 60th Anniversary Edition has an MSRP $200 higher than the standard R3, but is $100 less than last year’s YZF-R3 Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP Edition.
