1989 Yamaha TZ-250W

This model was launched in 1988 in response to continued pressure in the GP wars. It was further refined in 1989 and 90. The "reverse" cylinder made 80hp. Interesting to note that a water cooled reverse cylinder twin was first produced about 1965 by MZ in eastern Germany. The "Deltabox" Aluminum frame was a revolutionary chassis design and known to be a sweet handler. I took one look and had to have it in the fold.
