Project Description


Yamaha YDS7 1973

We are excited to be able to offer our Original UK Matching number YDS7 for sale.. The YDS7 and R5 appeared on the scene at the turn of the seventies, not only to counter the threat from Suzuki, who were also making some pretty impressive small capacity two strokes, but also out of a need to save money for the middleweight race projects. With the YDS7 It wasn’t only the engine that bore a remarkable resemblance to the race bikes, the chassis too was strikingly similar to the Yamaha racers of the period, hence the new roadsters rating as a fine handling and eminently manoeuvrable piece of kit. Much store is placed in the RD’s family heritage, but as gene pools go, the YDS7 and R5 are far more closely related to the piston port race machines than the later roadsters ever could be. These days they are slipping into exclusivity compared to the RD family!
