Modifying material with the force of passion. This philosophy, which is close to the Yamaha and Scorpion brands, has inspired the creation of a unique Concept Bike, on which ideas of exclusiveness and beauty add value to the standard product.

Yamaha and Abarth are currently examining the possibility of transforming the concept into reality by giving life to the Yamaha FZ1 Abarth Assetto Corse in a special limited series.

Thanks to materials and technical solutions that have been experimented on circuits all over the world, the FZ1 Abarth Assetto Corse takes the riding experience to a higher level.
