In 2000, after winning the 24hours race in Spa Francorchamps with the Yamaha Motor France YZF-R7, Jean-Marc Delétang, Fabien Foret, from France, and Mark Willis from Australia, wanted to repeat their feat during the legendary Bol d’Or. Yamaha Motor France did everything possible to obtain the best possible ranking during the race. With success, as the official team won the 1994 the Bol d’Or. It’s after many twists (including falls for the leaders and their direct pursuer, having given rise to fantastic comebacks) that the Yamaha #17 crosses the finish line with barely a minute and thirty seconds ahead of the second. This Bol d’Or was held for the first time in Magny-Cours and will certainly remain in the memories and especially in those of lovers of the Yamaha brand.
The history of this bike is known. Our consultant Hubert Rigal, former pilot and team manager of Yamaha Motor France knows it well.
This motorcycle remained 12 years in the premises of Yamaha Motor France before being recovered by a private collector close to Yamaha Motor France. This is one of the flagships of competition motorcycles from 1990 to 2000.
It is in the mechanical state of arrival at the Bol d’Or 2000 and has not been used since. Complete and in its original Bol d’Or 2000 configuration, this endurance racing bike is animated by a 200 hp 4-stroke in-line, 749 cc, water-cooled 4-cylinder engine with 20 valves.
