1993 YZM250 (0WE4)
(1993 / Racing Machine)
This was a 250cc class motocross factory machine. It featured an original rear suspension combining fiber reinforced plastic (FRP) leaf springs with a rotary damper. Notably, because of the lack of a shock absorber unit behind the engine, a straight intake passage could be adopted to improve engine efficiency. This machine was introduced in the 1992 All Japan Championship, and was ridden to victory in the final race by wild card rider Peter Johansson. The machine on display is the one that achieved victory in the opening round in 1993 ridden by Tomoyoshi Masuda and ranked 4th for the season.
