Back in 1989 Yamaha created the OW-01, a homologation special built for superbike racing. With a staggering £12,700 price tag, it cost more than the Honda RC30 and with only 500 built, the Yamaha was more exclusive too.

In this video, MCN Senior Road Tester Michael Neeves gets to realise a 22-year old dream and ride this classic superbike for the very first time.
