Description

Introduced to the public by Yamaha at the IFMA motorcycle show in Cologne, Germany, on September 18th 1986, the FZR 1000 Genesis was created to build upon the successful reputation established by its predecessors in the super sport category, the RD 350 and RD 500 models. The FZR 1000 also marked a major change of engine type being used by Yamaha, the company switching to four-stroke power plants for its new generation of high-performance superbikes and ditching the previous two-stroke units.   This book contains 28 internal articles that tell the story of the Yamaha FZR 1000 which was introduced in 1986 and became a 'superbike' from the start.
