It needs a nr41 painted on it. This bike with Nori on it were my favorite days of watching racing.

Of course a modern 600 would smoke it. That is not the point! This bike is a piece of history, R7 was only made to win a WSBK title. Yamaha at that time only made an R6 and an R1 wich they still do to this date. But if you wanted to race the Ducati 916rs. You needed a very stiff frame and à great 750 engine. Hence the R7! Nori would have taken this bike to Yamaha's first World title in Superbikes , but hè failed a bogus drugs test. Jus't sayin Nori Haga on an R7? Was great, an R7 on the road hoewever was crap because the frame is to ridgid. Sorry for rambling on like i did folks. But i love THE R7

Nevermind a modern 600, a 600 at the time was pretty much on par with it! Like carlos said though, it wasn't really a road bike - just step one towards a fully blown race bike and I love them for it. So special.

The buyer won't use it though!

People who buy zero mileage and unregistered bikes (often at a slight price premium) do so with no intention of ever using the bike. It will live in a warm garage and be sold in to a similar user in the future as an investment.

Went to the auction. The R7 went for £20 k. And the yoshimura busa £17k, the duc916sps £18 I think and the 220 mph holeshot busa turbo £7800 (a bargin I think). All prices plus buyers tax 15% and then vat. That makes the R 7 £28k ! Mind you there were also some bargains to be had.

Why don't you just get a modern bike that is better for like 10k and save yourself money? I don't get why people spend so much money on old inferior shite.
