This is a very nice Yamaha RZV500R which has just been given a freshen up, many parts powdercoated.

Want something that little bit special, better than the normal RD500?

The RZV500R was designed exclusively for the Japanese home market although many have been exported privately. The RZV500R features upgraded parts not found on the standard RD500LC. A major difference is the hand-welded aluminium frame, which is significantly lighter than the steel version used on standard models. The front brake lines are braided stainless steel instead of rubber coated, and the front forks are air assisted.

A fastly appreciating bike.
