Herrin signs for works Yamaha MotoAmerica Superbike squad

Josh Herrin will partner Jake Gagne in the works Yamaha MotoAmerica Superbike squad for 2021.

Making his big return to the Iwata marque in 2021, Herrin has a history of success with both Yamaha and Attack Performance, who run the operation.

The 30-year old’s professional career started with Yamaha where he earned 15 career wins in the 600cc class before moving up to the premier class and was crowned the 2013 Superbike Champion in his sophomore season.


Herrin continued his championship form with the Yamaha brand in 2016, taking the number-one plate in the Superstock 1000 class. In 2018, he showed strength aboard the Attack Performance Yamaha R1, scoring two wins in a stacked premier class for the privateer team.

With a total of eight career Superbike wins thus far, Herrin heads into the 2021 season with the newly-named Fresh N’ Lean Attack Performance Yamaha Racing team ready to come out swinging for more wins and another Superbike title.

“After that tough year in Moto2 in 2014, getting back with Yamaha has been something that I’ve been dreaming about. To be able to not only come back to Yamaha but to have Richard and Attack running the team is amazing,” said Herrin.

“Working with Richard in 2018, I think that was the best year I ever had. We didn’t win the championship, but as a small team, we were able to win races in Superbike. I felt the most comfortable on that motorcycle out of any other bike that I have ever ridden.

“I’m excited to get both of those partnerships back. I knew that combining Yamaha and Attack was going to be something really special. I’m just happy to be a part of this program. With Fresh N’ Lean stepping up as a title sponsor for the team, it’s going to be extra special for me. They’ve been a sponsor of mine for three years now.

“Thomas Asseo, the owner of Fresh N’ Lean, is super excited about this deal. It’s going to be neat having him on board. He’s got an R1 and does a lot of track days and club races.

“For me, I’m just excited to go out and be able to win some races again. It was a rough year for me in 2020. I’m looking forward to getting back on a bike that I know and that is a proven championship-winning bike.”
