Additional photos of this Yamaha IT465 are available here for your perusal.
Full of cutting edge tech for the time (such as the rear monoshock) the IT465 is revered by many as the best of the IT (International Trial) bikes that Yamaha ever made.
Though Yamaha would eventually made a 490 cc version of this bike, many felt that the bigger bore required to make more power wasn’t worth the trade-off of a slightly sluggish start off the line. Even today, the 35 horsepower of the 465 feels snappy off the line and makes plenty of off-idle torque.
The trip meter shows 525 miles. True mileage is unknown.
