Long Beach Ca. December 17, 2010

Yamaha Motor Corp. U.S. in conjunction with its performance line GYTR and Roland Sands Design proudly unveiled a specially crafted WR450F Supermoto bike for MotoGP Rookie of the year Ben Spies.

Former Yamaha AMA 250cc National Champion Roland Sands, world-renowned for his custom designed motorcycles, was commissioned by Spies to build a bike for "quick runs to the grocery store." The bike features a host of genuine Yamaha GYTR accessories and a host of other high performance accessories.

"Ben is a tremendous talent and this is proven by his MotoGP Rookie of the Year award," said Roland Sands, "and we feel this design best fits his determined riding style and drive."

Bob Starr, General Manager of National Communications, "this special WR450F we are presenting to him today is a small token of our appreciation for what he has accomplished in such a short time."
"Ben joined the Yamaha family just two years ago and immediately won the First World Superbike Championship for our company," said Bob Starr, General Manager of National Communications, "this special WR450F we are presenting to him today is a small token of our appreciation for what he has accomplished in such a short time."
