svldvc... BLASPHAMY i say ... BLASPHAMY.
By far one of the most rare bikes they made too. Only 1000 were imported into the states. SUPER HARD to get your hands on one. If I had some 50+K to blow, I'd throw it toward one of those bad boys.
Only 500 were ever made. They were built as a homologation special for WSBK and were about $40K new. Even then, they were a loss leader for Yamaha, and you couldn't get one without the proper race resume, or highend connection. At the very end of the season, Yamaha USA had about 4 of them available at around $24K. This was the best time to acquire one, if you were lucky and somewhat connected.

This bike has been listed before, but it was out of ebay.co.uk. I'm wondering why the guy shows a NC address now. I have a friend that is getting rid of his shortly. I hope that I have a chance to shoot it before he parts with it. Out of curiosity, what are your other 4 dream bikes?
