Echoes of the presentation of the new Yamaha XSR 900 Abarth at EICMA (International Cycle and Motorcycle Show in Milan) are still resonating and this weekend it will be time for the last appointment of the MotoGP Championship with the Movistar Yamaha MotoGP team, sponsored by Abarth, as the major contender.
Free from ranking concerns, since he has mathematically taken the second place, Valentino Rossi will be focusing on nailing the best possible result on the circuit where he won in 2003 and 2004. His team mate Jorge Lorenzo won in 2010, 2013 and 2015.
The Valencia circuit is one of the most spectacular of the entire championship because it allows thousands of spectators to see the entire track and follow all stages of the race. The spectators will also admire the high-performing new Abarth 124 spider, the car that guarantees all the thrills and fun that only a real spider can offer. Developed by the Abarth Racing team, the car perfectly embodies the leading values of the brand: performance, craftsmanship and technical excellence.
Available in saloon or convertible versions, the new 595 Abarth range comes in three trim levels (595, 595 Turismo and 595 Competizione) with as many engine powers and tuning levels, designed to satisfy today's increasingly discerning and competent customers. Many of the upgrades introduced are the result of experience gained with the development of the 695 Biposto, the "smallest supercar", a street-legal model which offers the excitement and technology of a real racing car.
