Yamaha YZF750SP

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Feature -

Another late-comer, the YZF is of­ten over­looked. It was launched in 1993 in two ver­sions: the 750R and WSB-ready SP, to suc­ceed the FZ and OW01 re­spec­tively. Good-look­ing, pow­er­ful from the five-valve, Ow-evolved en­gine, sweet-han­dling thanks to the lat­est Deltabox and well-equipped with six­pot brakes and in­verted forks, the SP, if not quite as ex­otic as the OW01, took things fur­ther with solo seat, Öh­lins multi-ad­justable sus­pen­sion, flat-slide carbs and close-ra­tio gear­box – all for just £3000 over the stock ma­chine.

1993-1997
