In 1999, Yamaha launched a pure race racing machine, the 750 R7. In fact, the goal was to manufacture the 500 motorcycles intended to homologate an extremely performing machine in the Superbike world championship. Noriyuki Haga will be seventh in the 1999 championship and will become vice-champion in 2000. Engaged by Yamaha Motor France under the leadership of Jean-Claude Olivier, the Yamaha 750 R7 will win the Bol d’Or, riden by Jean-Claude Marc Deletang, Fabien Foret and Mark Willis.
The motorbike presented is a very particular model. This R7 is build with of all the Factory parts. Legend has it that it was Noriyuki Haga’s training bike.
Although designed more than 20 years ago, the chassis of the Yamaha R7 is still a reference today. In terms of design, this machine is, in my opinion, the most beautiful motorcycle of (small) series ever built by Yamaha.
