Customers have the choice of an automatic or quartz version of the yellow and black watch, with the automatic version limited to 2,012 timepieces, while the quartz model has a run of 8,888 designs.

"Both models draw inspiration from the MotoGP machines and incorporate a dynamic black based strap with a yellow aerodynamic T-line, a dashboard-inspired dial, a bezel resembling a bike's brake disc and have carbon composites," MotoGP said in a statement.

The first race of the MotoGP 2012 season is to take place in Qatar on April 8th.
