Speaking of corner exit, if you talk to three of Yamaha’s four riders they’ll tell you that Yamaha’s biggest problem is its rear grip. However, Quartararo is adamant that the bike does have rear grip, it just takes a little bit to find it, with the World Champ maintaining that the biggest weakness is their lack of top speed. Yamaha are working on their rear grip problem though as we have seen two new swingarms. The first, pictured below, is their new aluminium swingarm which Quartararo has used for the last 3 or 4 races. But they also have a new carbon one which both riders have tested but not raced.
