Agostini-edition Yamaha YZF-R1 to be auctioned for charity
A special Giacomo Agostini-edition Yamaha YZF-R1 will soon be auctioned off in The Netherlands, with the proceeds going to the Papageno Foundation. Signed by the GP racing legend himself, the bike will be on display at the Amsterdam Hilton Hotel until the 24th of this month, after which it will go to the highest bidder. Along with the bike, an Agostini-edition AGV helmet will also go the winner.
The Papageno Foundation was set up about 14 years ago, with the aim of helping autistic children. ‘The Papageno Foundation does a fantastic job for autistic children. We are happy to help because Giacomo Agostini himself is enthusiastic about the project. A living legend, his 15 world titles are unmatched. He is also an ideal figurehead for this action,’ says Arno Sunnotel, President - Yamaha Motor Netherlands.
