YAMAHA WALKS AWAY EARLY

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

Yamaha de­cided to pull the plug on the world 500 Mo­tocross se­ries, in­sist­ing that 250s would be the new top dogs. As it turned out, the se­ries con­tin­ued to be the pre­mier class un­til 2002 when four-stroke 450s bat­tled it out with two-stroke 250s, al­though 500cc twostrokes were al­lowed to race in MX3 un­til that class was scrapped in 2013!
