TWO KIWI RIDERS ATTEND YZ65 CUP
The first round of the Yamaha YZ65 cup took place at MX Central alongside the Raymond Terrace
round of the 2018 MX Nationals in Newcastle Australia over the weekend, between 14-15 July.
Yamaha Motor New Zealand was delighted to have two Kiwi riders (Will Harvey and Richard
Spencer) represent New Zealand at the event as well as provide an opportunity for the riders to have
a full bLU cRU experience.
Developed for Yamaha’s newest bLU cRU members, the YZ65 cup experience aims to provide riders
with a money-can’t buy experience of racing in front of a national crowd.
The two Kiwi riders, Will Harvey and Richard Spencer had their throttles wide open in every Moto to
gain a well-deserved overall position in the final cup.
Both Harvey and Spencer were incredibly excited to have an opportunity for the full factory race
experience, being able to pit under the bLU cRU truck awning, with assistance from Yamaha factory
technicians. Another event highlight was attending a bLU cRU BBQ on Saturday evening with the
Yamaha factory teams, an opportunity for autographs and signed merchandise.
The all new YZ65 is fitted with Yamaha’s YPVS system, this feisty two-stroke has heaps of easy-to-use
torque and handling is predictable and assured thanks to tried and tested chassis design and
industry leading KYB suspension.
YZ65 offers all the fun, performance and dependability of Yamaha’s bigger YZs. It’s the first step on a
long journey – a journey that will keep young guns with the bLU cRU and firmly within the
Yamaha Motor New Zealand is looking at hosting regional training clinics in the coming months for
riders who have purchased a YZ65 in New Zealand. All YZ65 riders are encouraged to contact their
local Yamaha dealer to register their interest for a locally based training event.
