Yamaha has launched a promotion with GoPro to give away free HD HERO2 Motorsports Edition cameras to Yamaha ATV customers in the first half of 2012.

Through the unique promotion, anyone who buys a 400cc and above Yamaha ATV by the end of May will receive a free GoPro HD HERO2 (a $299 value) from Yamaha. Full details are on Yamaha’s website.

“Yamaha is excited to offer a free HD HERO2 camera to ATV customers in 2012 through this new promotion with GoPro,” says Steve Nessl, Yamaha’s ATV/SxS group marketing manager. “We’ve used the HERO cameras on motocross tracks, on trail rides, in the sand dunes and even when out hunting. It’s a great camera, and we expect this will be an exciting offer for motorsports and outdoor enthusiasts alike.”

The HD HERO2 camera can be worn or mounted on just about anything utilizing GoPro’s numerous mounts and accessories.

Yamaha’s Dustin Nelson wore a GoPro camera while racing his YFZ450R to a record fifth championship in the 2011 motocross season, and Yamaha’s Whitetail Diaries hunting show on NBC Sports mounts the cameras to the Grizzly 700 with EPS to capture action in the field.

“The versatility of the HERO cameras, and the quality that the GoPro brand represents, make this a great fit for Yamaha’s ATV customers,” says Nessl. “Yamaha produces the most high-performance, toughest and off-road capable vehicles, and is an avid supporter of the many lifestyles in which our products are used. This new GoPro promotion is another example of how Yamaha is supporting our customers’ lifestyles and exceeding their expectations.”

The HD HERO2 shoots high quality HD 1080p video and has numerous still image settings to capture 11 megapixel photographs. GoPro also produces a line of accessories including the LCD BacPac, the 3D HERO System and the upcoming Wi-Fi BacPac / Remote Control Combo kit and GoPro App for mobile devices.

Eligible models: All new, unused and previously unregistered 2008-2012 Yamaha ATV models 400cc and greater. Customer must purchase eligible model between January 1, 2012 and May 31, 2012. Offer good in the United States excluding Hawaii.
