Yamaha Indonesia has released a YouTube video that features the Aerox 125LC with pro racer Valentino Rossi. Shooting took place when Rossi was in Bali for the launch of the Xabre motorcycle.

Officially released February 15, 2016, this video is the second episode in the “Life Is a Race” YouTube video series. The first was “The Designer,” which covered the launch of the Aerox 125LC at Sentul International Circuit on January 18, 2016.

"Life Is a Race" begins with a man named Adrian, a big fan of Valentino Rossi. While on the road riding an Aerox 125LC, Adrian sees another man also on an Aerox 125LC, with a "46" logo on his helmet.

Adrian follows the man, and they stop at a cafe. To Adrian’s surprise, the other man is his idol, Valentino Rossi. They shake hands and Rossi says in Indonesian, “Motornya kencang.” (“The bike is fast.”) He continues, “But it’s all about the man behind the bike. Life is a race, man. So keep up with me.”

The video closes with Rossi saying, “Yamaha Aerox. Yamaha Semakin di Depan.” (“The Yamaha Aerox. Yamaha is moving ahead.”)
