23 years ago Yamaha unleashed their YZF-R7 on the world, a 750cc inline 4 cylinder superbike. They only produced & sold 500, the number required to qualify it for the World Superbike Championship. This summer Yamaha reincarnated the R7. Whether it’s a “higher form” of the old remains to be seen; it’s down 2 cylinders and 60cc’s (kind of like being Michael Jordan and coming back as Steve Kerr). With a limit of 1 per dealership, it sure feels like they made less than 500, so it’s got exclusivity going for it.
