The customized supersport motorcycle makes use of several exciting aftermarket parts and accessories, that add a couple of thousands of dollars to the bike's $13,290 base MSRP.
"We are delighted at the opportunity to work with the Palms Casino Resort," said Bob Starr, General Manager of Communications for Yamaha Motor Corporation. "The Palms is regarded as the hottest, youth focused casino resort in Las Vegas. Through this exciting co-promotion Yamaha will reach a new pool of potential riders who will appreciate the performance and outstanding design of our motorcycles."
