  • YZF-R1 race bike built for Ian Lougher to finish 5th in the 2008 Superbike TT lapping at 127MPH
  • Engine built by FWD with Carillo rods and many YEC kit parts, refreshed for 2009 TT but not used
  • Many chassis upgrades including a 24L TT tank, Quickshifter, run recently on dyno to keep things moving

The Yamaha Motor Co was formed in 1955 as the powered vehicle division of the massive Yamaha Corporation more famous for making musical instruments. The first bike produced in 1954 was the YA-1, like the BSA Bantam a copy of the German made DKW RT125 but in typical Japanese fashion this was soon improved upon with the launch of the YA-2 in 1957. This proved to be an immediate success in sporting events starting a long tradition of achievement that goes on to this day in Moto GP.

This YZR-R1 was put together by Ian Loughers Blackhorse Finance team for the 2008 road racing season and was raced in the NW200 and the IOMTT, finishing 7th in the Senior race and 5th in the Superbike race lapping at 127MPH. The engine was tuned by Frank Wrathall Developements using many YEC kit parts including a kit generator, wiring loom, ECU, oil pump, breather system, Arata exhaust and Carillo rods with a dynosheet showing it giving out 190BHP. Chassis improvements include a Dynojet quickshifter, Ohlins rear damper, Ohlins steering damper, Arata footrest, Harris fairing bracket, lightweight bodywork and a 24L TT tank. Ian sold it to the vendor when the team moved to Kawasaki and the engine was then refreshed for Mats Nielsen to use in the 2009 TT, but he was unable to ride due to injury. In storage since it has been run regularly on a rolling road to keep things in good order. A rare chance to acquire a bike with genuine race history.
