1985 FZR750 (0W74)
(1985 / Racing Machine)
This was an endurance race spec TT-F1 factory machine based on the FZ750 production sports model. The DOHC 5-valve, in-line 4-cylinder engine featured a modified forward inclination of the cylinders from 45° to 35° to accommodate the shortening of the wheelbase and the adoption of the Fresh Air Intake (F.A.I.) system. It was mounted in a specially designed aluminum Deltabox frame. In the 1985 Suzuka 8 hours Endurance Race, despite having to retire because of mechanical trouble in the final phase of the race, an FZR750 raced by Kenny Roberts and Tadahiko Taira displayed outstanding performance that thrilled the crowd.
