Yamaha 50th color scheme

Went last night to the motorcycle show and saw atv`s with the 50th paint scheme!!!!!
Now let`s see they make the R1, R6, raptor, haven`t checked the scooters but how come no FZ1 in 50th clothing, it seems it would have given it a boost:
Maybe i would have bought one!!!!!

Yamaha's got their head up their ass. Correct me if I'm wrong (especiall Desmo!!!) but I believe the bumblebee scheme was an American paint job only. I remeber all the European paint being red/white. So Europe gets the naked in bumblbee

It all started in 72 at daytona Kenny Roberts, Kel Carruthers, Keith Mashburn and Jim Odom sporting the yellow and black Molly design strobe-stripe color scheme, Art Barda was team manager at the time and found a source for bumblebee decals which later became known as Barda bees.
