Swan Yamaha signs Noriyuki Haga, welcome to British Superbikes

It was a rumor that had been on the air for a few weeks. Names like Anthony West's and Noriyuki Haga to join the already remarkable British grill. Very bad news arrived shortly after, the injury to Ian Hutchinson that left him out of the races for about 13 weeks, missing the start of the British Superbikes and the preseason - and now it seems that also the hole in the BSB -. Thus those of Swan Yamaha, one of the clear favorites this season that already have Tommy Hill defending the title, began the search for another great talent for their ranks.

And then the rumor has come true. According to Visordown and much of the British press Swan Yamaha has struck a deal with the tireless Noriyuki Haga to take the position left by Hutchy, ruling out the possibility that he was wearing a Ducati 1199 Panigale. Remember, as they say, the occasion when Gregorio Lavilla came to Ducati Airwaves to replace James Haydon and ended up being known as McGregor Lavilla.

Nitro Nori has happened numerous times with Yamaha, since that spectacular Yamaha R7 even the Yamaha R1 decorated with the colors of Banco Santander - the one you have at the top -. With the landing of a crack like the Japanese, BSB 2012 raises the bar again and Tommy Hill meets the enemy at home.
