You can’t even buy it in red (in

But it was clearly the pre-916, two-valve that Yamaha was aiming at their first prototype were unveiled in the summer of The TRX’s trellis frame had been one of the Italian company’s — and a feature they’ve to retain despite the fashion for beam frames. The five-valve engine of the Yamaha has a 270 degree that gives it the lumpy and feel of a V-twin.

Twist the throttle open and swear it was a Ducati rumbling the rough spot from to 5,000 rpm.
