(1972 / Production Model)
This was Yamaha Motor's first 750cc road sport model. At a time when large multi-cylinder engines were most common, Yamaha exhibited its originality by fitting this model with an in-line 2-cylinder engine. Its array of advanced features included a balancer, dry sump lubrication, disc brakes with opposed-piston calipers and aluminum wheel rims. This combination helped achieve a unique feeling of torque and pulse, as well as nimble handling thanks to the slim chassis design.
