Yamaha now distributes select Marchesini wheels, including a new exclusive H-spoke race replica wheel.
“We are delighted to announce the new distribution of Marchesini wheels for the R1 and R6 through Yamaha’s North American dealers,” Wayne Rodgers, Marchesini’s racing director, stated in a press release. “As the exclusive supplier and technical partner to the MotoGP, World Superbike and AMA Superbike teams, it is a natural step to make the same technology available to Yamaha consumers.”
The H-spoke wheel, used by Yamaha’s road race teams, was previously only available in magnesium. Yamaha dealers will now exclusively carry a new aluminum version in black.
“This wheel projects the same image as the world-class racing wheels Marchesini has become renowned for, while maintaining the safety and performance standards required for street use,” Rodgers said.
In addition to the H-spoke, Yamaha will also offer Marchesini’s T-spoke wheels in silver and gold. Yamaha’s addition of Marchesini wheels to its increasing list of “Distributed by Yamaha” products is part of a Yamaha initiative to fully serve its dealers’ accessory needs.
Adam Sylvester, Yamaha’s P&A national sales manager, stated, “By combining our excellent internal brands with a wide, high-quality selection of ‘Distributed by Yamaha’ products, it is our goal to be our dealers’ one-stop source for any Yamaha product.”
