The underlying ideal for Yamaha Motor's motorcycle development is achieving rider-machine unity in which the machine responds just the way the rider expects it to. Is it possible to recreate in papercraft the world of racing in its entirety instead of just a machine, where the ultimate unity between the rider and the machine is achieved? We offer you a model kit that embodies the idea of Mr. Mukouyama, a papercraft designer who has been in charge of producing papercraft models offered at the Yamaha Motor website.
The general world of racing is created in papercraft on an unprecedented scale as our own "Motorsports World," with the YZR-M1 (2013 model) at the center, representing the powerful excitement of racing and the ambience of a racing circuit as its stage.
The motif used is a top MotoGP rider Valentino Rossi's legendary run at Laguna Seca in 2008. We chose the scene as an homage to Rossi, who represents the appeal of racing at its height.
So how about recreating the world of racing yourself?
We present you with a large-scale challenge.
