T.Among the news and curiosities of the Japanese shows that are taking place in recent months (Osaka, Tokyo and Nagoya) there is one that could make the eyes of those who love endurance shine: the aesthetic kit for the Yamaha R7 which transforms it into a replica of the R1 of the Yamalube Yamaha EWC Official Team by YART who should have participated with Kohta Nozane, Niccolò Canepa and Marvin Fritz at the 8 Hours of Suzuka 2020, a race actually canceled due to the difficulties that arose following the pandemic.
THEThe kit consists of already painted parts, they are exclusively components of the superstructures, fairings, tank covers and front fender that follow the YART team’s R1 livery quite faithfully, produced by Wise Gear and marketed by Japanese Yamaha dealers.
The availability of the kit will start from August 2022, while the price in Japan is equivalent to 1,670 euros. It is not specified whether the kit will also be available abroad but in any case we imagine that the eventual owners of the beautiful medium-displacement Yamaha sport Endurance enthusiasts will have something to shine their eyes even if, remember, the kit does not include any suspension or engine upgrade: for those there is the GYTR kit, or if you want another “alternative” livery you cannot underestimate the splendid coloring celebrating 60 years of track racing for the Iwata manufacturer.
