2000 YZR250 (0WL5)
(2000 / Racing Machine)
This was a World GP factory machine powered by a 250cc V-twin engine. With further advances in the areas of intake and exhaust efficiency, reduced horsepower loss and further refinement of the management systems, it achieved a higher maximum output and improved power development characteristics. It featured refinements to the suspensions that optimized the front/rear balance, refinements in the braking system, changes in the fairing shape and reductions in vehicle weight. It is also known on which Yamaha teammates Shinya Nakano and Olivier Jacque staged a fierce battle for the title, with Jacque coming out on top and winning the championship. The machine on display is the one raced by Nakano.
