Yamaha MotoGP Racing, also known as Yamaha Factory Racing, is Yamaha’s official Italian-Japanese factory team in MotoGP. Yamaha Motor Racing has chosen Roboze, a leader in 3D printing technology using super polymers and composite materials, as its technology partner for the 2023, 2024, and 2025 seasons.

Passion and evolution. These are the priorities that have always defined the history of motorcycle innovation, with the goal of achieving maximum performance in order to achieve the best results. In recent years, the entire sector has pioneered and promoted innovative technological solutions that have dictated the sector’s global progress. Among these, additive manufacturing, also known as 3D printing, is becoming increasingly important to MotoGP development and engineering teams.

“In Roboze we have found an advanced technological partner that we are sure will help us achieve great technical results. Roboze ARGO 500 allows us to produce components in carbon and with materials resistant to very high temperatures. For our technical team it was a real breakthrough. We have already tested and had very satisfactory results. Reducing weights and production times, guaranteeing compliance with test deadlines, give us the opportunity to express the ingenuity and skills of our technicians”.

– Michele Gadda, Engineering Manager at Yamaha Motor Racing

Roboze technology is a hybrid of advanced mechatronics, industrial automation, and materials science. The 3D printers provided by the supplier can produce customised finished parts made of innovative and lightweight materials capable of replacing metal parts and optimising the bike’s aerodynamics. Critical success factors in the MotoGP world, where each factor contributes to eroding hundredths of a second, making the difference between first and second place.

This technology is now used globally by highly regulated industries such as aviation and space, which are accelerating the validation of 3D printing applications with the Roboze ecosystem and, as a result, digitising their production processes with cost, efficiency, and environmental sustainability benefits.

According to Alessio Lorusso, Founder & CEO of Roboze, “The challenge for achieving unprecedented performance is what drives the Roboze team every day to evolve 3D printing technology. Partnerships with innovative players like Yamaha MotoGP fuel our spirit and enable us to accelerate our insights directly on the field. We are ready to mark a further step in 3D printing for the production of motorsport components”.
