The Yamaha YZR-M1 MotoGP motorbike seems doubtful if it has to compete on a long straight track. Indeed, several times Yamaha motorcycles were easily overtaken by other motorcycles on long straights like in Mugello. However, the top speed record of one Yamaha rider broke the stigma that Yamaha couldn’t speed.
One of the four riders riding a Yamaha YZR-M1 is in the top three for the top speed winners at the 2022 Italian MotoGP, which will be held at the Autodromo Internazionale del Mugello Circuit, last night. This is Darryn Binder.
In the top speed and average speed data released by MotoGP, Darryn Binder is the third rider to win the top speed in the Gran Premio D’Italia Oakley 2022 series. Darryn Binder is able to accelerate his motorbike to 358.8 km / h, the same number as Enea’s speed Bastianini in the series. Bastianini himself became the second highest speed winner in the 2022 Italian MotoGP last night WIB, under Jorge Martin who broke the latest top speed record.
The Autodromo Internazionale del Mugello circuit is indeed famous for having a long straight track which is a moment for MotoGP riders to push their motorbikes to the limit. The circuit has a straight track along 1,141 meters, with a total circuit length of 5.2 km.

At this circuit, the MotoGP motorcycle speed record is broken again. Jorge Martin raced his bike up to 363.6 km/h, the highest in MotoGP history. As for Jorge Martin’s motorbike, the Ducati Desmosedici is famous for its top speed.
