Rossi Visits India for the First Time

MotoGP World Champion and Yamaha rider Valentino Rossi made a guest star appearance at the Auto Expo in New Delhi the past weekend, marking the Italian’s first visit to India. During the first day, Rossi met India Yamaha Motor's senior management, signed autographs and also inspected the latest India Yamaha models.

During his second day of visit in the Indian capital of New Delhi, Rossi also met John Abraham, one of the biggest Indian film stars and also an ambassador for Yamaha India.

"This is my very first visit to India and I am impressed by the beauty of this country, although sadly I did not have much time to visit Delhi." Rossi said in a release from
Yamaha. "I hope to be able to come back soon and have more time to enjoy this place. Yamaha has been doing great things here and the positive response from the market is the evidence that they have been going in the right direction."

"The new models YZF-R15 and FZ16, which are less-powerful replicas of the R1 and the Fazer, are definitely appropriate for this market and for the characteristics of the traffic here in India. In fact I am amazed at the traffic and the incredible numbers of cars and bikes on the road all the time, by day and night! It was great to see John Abraham, I met him a few years ago when he came to a race so it was nice to see him in his own country, where he is very famous!"

"I'm flying home now but it has been a very good trip; I am happy to have so many fans here in India and I hope that one day we will have the chance to race here."
