Introduced in 1993, the Yamaha YZF750R spent its time in the shadow of the Honda CBR900RR and the Ducati 916, however “it was the best everyday 750cc sportsbike of the 1990s“ as well as Sport Rider Magazine’s 1995 Bike of the Year.
Yamaha had already gone with the racebike-for-the-road route with the recent OW-01, so this follow-up 750 was a road bike first – racers had the option of a homologation version dubbed the SP. Per the above Carole Nash review: “Unlike the Ducati 916 and Honda RC45 against which it competed on track, the Yam was a bike of the people. With a claimed 125bhp, on tap it was more powerful than anything else in the class – including the aforementioned Ducati and FireBlade – when it was launched.”
