Ryan Villopoto signing with Yamaha as a brand-ambassador came as a shock to many. Despite racing Yamaha’s as an amateur, to the masses, RV is a Kawasaki guy. It seems however that his new signing has lit a fire in Villopoto – or maybe it’s financial reward of seeing a blue fender when he rides. Whatever it may be, RV is riding and looks to be seriously enjoying his riding, in a recent interview with Racer X Online, Ryan admitted a signing to Yamaha before retiring may have extended his career.
So will we see RV2 race again? It appears so!
Ryan has been loaded some videos on social media testing a YZ450F snow bike, with asperations of racing X-Games in Aspen. We’d love to see Ryan compete in more one-off races in 2018. How about Aus-X Open again RV?
