Yamaha makes its return to World Superbikes in 2016 with a mixture of youth and experience - (left to right) Sylvain Guintoli and Alex Lowes.




While for the Movistar Yamaha MotoGP team it was a lot of same ol', same ol,' that definitely wasn't the case today for the unveiling of the Pata Yamaha World Superbike team. New team, new riders, new bike and a new challenge – the 2016 World Superbike Championship.

Yamaha returns to the championship after a four-year absence, and with that return they brought a new weapon – the YZF-R1M. In collaboration with the Crescent Racing team, Yamaha is fielding riders Alex Lowes and 2014 World Superbike Champion Sylvain Guintoli.

Here’s a look at the official team’s livery for 2016…

It's a sort of homecoming for Lowes who won his 2013 British Superbike title on a Yamaha. Can the young Brit climb his way to the top of the World Championship on the new R1?
