Yamaha brought in Jorge Lorenzo to India recently. The 2010 World MotoGP Champion’s first visit to the country saw him interact with his fans at the Yamaha booth at the 2012 Auto Expo. He later on proceeded to the Buddh International Circuit to ride the Yamaha R15 Version 2.0 on the track. He also met the winners of the e-contest held by Yamaha. Lorenzo joined Yamaha Factory Racing Team in 2008 as a double 250cc World Champion. He was Valentino Rossi’s team mate, whom Yamaha had brought to the last Auto Expo, leading to an insane crowd at the Yamaha stall.
“I am simply delighted to visit India and want to thank India Yamaha Motor for organizing this visit and giving me the opportunity to meet my fans here. Seeing the number of biking and motorsports enthusiasts here, I can say that the adrenaline is surely pumping high for motorcycle racing in India. The only advice that I would like to give to all biking enthusiasts is that they should take care of safety aspects while riding; if safety is taken care of then biking is indeed a cherish able experience,” Jorge Lorenzo said.
