    Big news coming out of Anaheim today. Ryan Villopoto will be going to work for team Yamaha. That's awesome news for Yamaha.

    I wonder why? He’s literally been a Kawi rider his whole life

    I dont understand the brand ambassadors.

    People buy bikes because these guys endorse them?

    Villo rode factory Yamaha’s on 85s before kawi scooped him.

    Unless he's going to dial the bike in for Webb, this seems pointless.

    Clearly. However, bet they paid villo more than barcia. But like what is he going to do ? Just sign autographs. Wear a Yamaha shirt....?

    Might be good to have a champion be at Webb's side to get his mind straight. Could be a great investment.

    Still don’t see how that makes Webb “faster” unless you get yourself some cartoon characters to steal some talent.

    Last year Kawasaki had 2 with Villopoto & McGrath, if they were cutting back to just 1 brand ambassador McGrath is the better pick. Villopoto is terrible talking in front of the camera compared to McGrath..

    There was a lot of money involved. With the introduction of the YZ65 in February, Yamaha is going to make the Blue Crew more like Team Green. RV is a young guy and he will be working with young kids. His focus will be 65, 85, and 125 riders.

    Just wonder if dropping the 50cc line is going to hurt KTM. Might lose some potential brand loyal customer base. Maybe won’t carry over into the 65s.
