From the PB mag forum, what we have here is a 1990s TT-F1 Team Nescafe Can Yamaha replica YZF750. The bike – a Yamaha YZF750SP homologation special, based on Yamaha’s TT-F1 racer of that time – was bought by the current owner way back in 1992.

Apart from the Team Nescafe replica paintjob, the bike’s owner has fitted a Y.E.C. KIT swingarm and Ohlins Type 46HRCLS rear shock on the machine, just to make sure the bike is as close to the original TT-F1 racer as possible. Damn cool…

Preceded by the FZR750R OW01, the YZF750 EXUP was actually heavier and less powerful – in stock form, its 20-valve inline-four made around 106bhp, while the earlier FZR had 120 horsepower.

The homologation-special single-seat YZF750SP was more like it. Stiff and light Deltabox aluminium alloy frame. Adjustable 41mm USD fork and Ohlins shock, heavily braced swingarm. 17-inch wheels wearing 120/70 (front) and 180/55 (rear) ZR-rated rubber. Twin 320mm brake discs at the front, with six-piston calipers. Hotter cams, and 39mm flat-slide carbs with electronically controlled accelerator pumps. And a dry weight of 192 kilos.

Indeed, the YZF750SP was more race-ready than the standard bike. But then, at around US$20,000 it was also about 50% more expensive than the standard YZF. All said, the YZF750 wasn’t a very successful racebike and Honda’s pathbreaking 1992 CBR900RR made sure the YZF wasn’t a very successful streetbike either. Production was stopped in 1996, and Yamaha didn’t have a supersports 750 till 1999, when the OW02 R7 was launched. But that’s another story…
