2000 Yamaha YZF R7

Price: £19,995 Mileage: 5,461

The Yamaha YZF-R7 owed its existence to the factory's need for a World Superbike Championship contender. It was produced in relatively limited quantities, only 500 being made to meet the Championship's homologation requirements, of which only 34 were earmarked for the UK. Road-going versions are rare and genuine race bikes even rarer, and despite their relative modernity both are highly sought after by collectors.

The YZF-R7 was powered by a 749cc four-cylinder engine incorporating Yamaha's then favoured five-valves-per-cylinder technology. In road-going form this produced a relatively uninspiring 107bhp but with the race kit fitted the second bank of fuel injectors was brought into play, liberating 139 horsepower, while in full race trim over 160bhp was attainable. The geometry of the aluminium alloy Deltabox II frame was based on that of the firm's YZR500 Grand Prix racers and the R7 came with the best suspension Öhlins could offer, which in part justified the eye-watering list price of £21,449.

This stunning example was UK registered from new. It has the race kit fitted and has benefitted from specialist input from renowned tuner/racer Ray Stringer. Wider Dymag wheels, uprated exhaust and AP Racing six pot brakes further enhance the bike's performance, with the original items included should the next owner wish to revert to standard. Only three owners and 5,461 miles from new and in virtually unmarked condition throughout.
