Thumbs up 1999 Yamaha R7 0W02 FOR SALE

Hey fellow motorcyclists! I have a pretty rare bike here that is for sale. It's the famous R7 Yamaha that was made for homologation purposes (World Superbike Racing) which means only 500 were built for sale. This bike has been confirmed as one of the models that DID NOT require the major factory engine recall. You can see from the instrument cluster that it has very very low miles and it reads in metric units only. This R7 is basically in flawless condition.

As stated on the Wikipedia website:
The Yamaha YZF-R7 OW02 is a race homologation motorcycle of limited production run of only 500 units. It was designed to compete in the Superbike World Championship and Suzuka 8 Hours endurance races.
It has a 749 cc (45.7 cubic inches), 20-valve (5 valves per cylinder) inline-four engine DOHC producing 107 hp (80 kW), or 139 hp (104 kW) when the other, unused bank of fuel injectors is activated, and over 162 hp (120 kW) in race trim.
The R7 was built for racing 'out of the box', implied by the chassis, which was derived from information and geometry from the YZR500 machines of the period. The R7 was specified with Íhlins suspension components, a shortened Deltabox II frame and weight of just slightly over the 162 kg (360 lb) minimum of superbike regulations.
The intentions of the R7 were further underlined, with its designation of "OW-02" and the lack of any pillion/passenger provision.


Enjoy the pictures!

The R7 bike has been in storage here for years and was just recently wiped free of dust and the battery replaced.

(UPDATE - THE R1 IS SOLD)

And just incase you stumbled upon this listing from the Google please visit the next posting which features a completely tricked out 2005 Yamaha R1 with only 1280 miles on it. It's worth a look! http://fourwheelforum.com/showthread.php?t=1250

Default R7 For Sale

Smithers,
I cant buy your bike but it sure would be a great time to take it to the Isle of Man in June. Bet you would find a buyer there.

Ahh that would be a lot of fun! Someday I hope to retire and do fun stuff like that. :]

About selling it, the only one I know that is for sale right now is for 24K at a dealer up in Washington. I don't think it's in comparable condition and this one can be had for much less. It's an amazing bike but needs to be put in someone's collection.
