Vuillemin: “I have had many wins in Bercy, but for sure this one was

Langston and Short, who are used to racing the 125 class. Last time I
raced on a 125 was seven years ago. I will keep a great memory of this
win, for sure the hardest but also the nicest one here in Bercy. If I
come back next year I will test both a 125 two stroke and a 250 four
stroke before the event, to make the best choice.”

Toyota & Yamaha team up to make a new truck

Toyota & Yamaha team up to make a new truck

Toyota and Yamaha have teamed up to develop a truck that makes hauling
watercraft, snowmobiles, motorcycles and ATVs as much fun as riding
them — the Tundra Double Cab Toyota/Yamaha Concept Truck. Built to
meet the needs of active families or groups hauling their favorite
toys, the Toyota/Yamaha Concept Truck is packed with added features.

The Toyota/Yamaha Concept Truck features the Team Yamaha Blue/White
paint scheme and Toyota/Yamaha Concept Truck logo. Other custom design
elements include a one-of-a-kind bumper guard and grille with skid
plate, tough enough for desert excursions, while still stylish enough
for cruising around town.

The bed is sprayed with coating for protection and additional grip to
keep bikes, loading ramps and gear bags from sliding. A bed rack keeps
motorcycles snug during transport.

A supercharger developed by Toyota Racing Development has been added to
help haul the load. With up to seven pounds of boost available, maximum
horsepower jumps from 240 to 353 hp and torque from 315 lb.-ft. to 359
lb.-ft, both at 5200 rpm. TRD’s dual side exhaust provides improved
breathing performance.

The interior has custom designed leather seat covers and door panels in
blue, black, and silver with the Yamaha logo. A DVD player and Nintendo
GameCube keep backseat passengers happy while they view movies and
games on the headrest screens. Rugged floor mats make for easy cleaning
after a long day of play.
