YAMAHA RD500LC

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Dream Garage -

Hav­ing owned a cou­ple of 350YPVSS I’ve al­ways lusted af­ter the big­ger RD500 and one day I fi­nally had the op­por­tu­nity to pick up a ‘tidy run­ner’ for £5k, which was the go­ing rate back in 2009. I took it for a test ride and it was the biggest dis­ap­point­ment. It was slow, steered aw­fully and looked like it was thrown to­gether at the fac­tory, which it prob­a­bly was, such was Yamaha’s rush to get it to mar­ket. I bought a new Street Triple R in­stead. One day I’ll tick that box but un­til then I’ll fan­ta­sise with a dig­i­tal ver­sion.
