Ryan Villopoto is now a Yamaha man but was gracious with his praise for Kawasaki with whom he won all his races and championships as a pro.

Villopoto said: “they will be forever be a part of my legacy,” in an Instagram post before his surprising Yamaha announcement. See his full statement of thanks to Kawasaki below:



  1. Villopoto is a money whore. Yamaha offered him more money and that’s why he changed. Like he doesn’t already have enough money. The respect I had for him was damaged w/his money-only driven MXGP effort and, now, I have none for him.
