Built in the days when World Superbike and AMA Superbike still controlled huge fanbases, and names like Duhamel, Russell, Stevens, Polen and Chandler lined American road racing grids, the 1994 Yamaha YZF750R sought to bring some of the sound and fury to the streets.
The bad news for Yamaha, of course, was that they found little success in either championship when compared to their rivals, settling instead for a smattering of wins at the Suzuka 8-hour during the YZF's production run. The exception was 1991, when Thomas Stevens snagged the AMA championship aboard an OW-01.
This YZF isn't exactly low mileage, but it does not appear to have been abused, and has clean, original fairings, albeit with some scratches and cracking. It comes with one OEM replacement side panel, and is wearing new tires and brake pads after a recent service. With 120 or so horses in a 500-lb frame, the bike should acquit itself well even today.
