About the Yamaha YZR500

Long considered one of the premier motorcycle makers in the world, Yamaha began pursuing a 500cc class victory in 1973, at the same time as rival Suzuki. Yamaha acquired American rider Kenny Roberts Sr. in the hopes of besting Suzuki, and he won Grand Prix trophies for Yamaha 3 years running from 1978 to 1980. It was the yellow No.1 YZR500 that brought Kenny Roberts his stunning 3rd victory in 1980. The Yamaha YZR500 is powered by a four cylinder, two-stroke water-cooled 498cc engine mounted in a twin loop, square section frame. Features such as the deltabox frame and Yamaha Power Valve System (YPVS) helped make it one of the most successful bikes in over 30 years of Grand Prix competition.

  • Engine is molded as one part with airduct and other adjacent parts to provide easy assembly and preserve detail.
  • All-new high quality Cartograf decals are included for enhanced detail.
