The future is behind us. Yamaha's neo classic Café racer

ER Classics Desktop 2022

Yamaha_Cafe_Racer_BAoltA while ago, Enfield India, nowadays 'Royal Enfield', brought the Continental to the market again. A Café racer as a tribute to one's own history. A piece of nostalgia from the time that motorcyclists were in their twenties - instead of 45 + '. With injection and a disc brake, but otherwise completely authentic.

In the time of the Café racers only started to slowly export light motorcycles to Japan. That lack of history, by the way, does not mean anything bad. After all, you cannot blame an elder brother for not being the youngest brother, the Japanese have long been compensated by an excess of marketing.

At Yamaha that recently resulted in this 'study model', the Café racer. Based on the now old 920 cc Vtwin block with air cooling (date of birth somewhere in the early eighties of the last century).

Yamaha suggests that people want to make their Yamaha look their own. Sounds like: "It is ready for production and we have four A4 sheets with fun things that you can have funded and guaranteed by your Authorized Dealer ..."


But the pure caféracer thought has been nicely affected!
