To further promote the newly introduced R7, Yamaha has announced the launch of a R7 series racing event.
The 689cc twin-cylinder Yamaha R7 with his 73 horsepower will struggle a bit on the faster circuits, while the availability of GYTR performance parts designed specifically for the bike make it an ideal base model for racing.
Top speed or blistering fast accelerations will not be the name, but high cornering speeds and fun on track will.
If it's anything like the MotoAmerica Drag King of the Baggers races, we are very excited!
The 30 top riders from the national R7 cups will be invited to the R7 Series European SuperFinale at the end of the season, which will be held during one of the last European rounds of the FIM Superbike World Championship.
The riders will complete practice and qualifying on Friday, before taking to the track for two races on Saturday.
The location and date of the Yamaha R7 Series European SuperFinale, as well as the calendars for the various R7 Cups in each European country, will be announced in the very near future.
