This special Limited Edition item is to celebrate the Yamaha Motor Company's 50th Anniversary in 2005. The addition of Cartograf decals to the YZR500 kit allows modellers to build the Akai Yamaha YZR500.

Legendary British motorcycle racer, Barry Sheene, raced in the 1980 World Grand Prix on a Yamaha YZR500 sponsored by Akai. The bike's stylish colour scheme of red lines on a black base caught the attention of many fans at the time, and has remained a favourite over the years. After the finish of the WGP season, Sheene amazed Japanese motorcycle fans with his performance at the TBC Big Road Race. 

  • 1/12 scale model depicts the actual motorcycle's characteristic features such as the 2-stroke water-cooled 4-cylinder engine and monocross suspension.
  • Includes parts to accurately reproduce Akai Yamaha's Dymag wheels.
  • All-new high quality Cartograf decals reproduce the Akai Yamaha YZR500.
  • Includes 2 sets of markings to depict Sheene's bike at the 1980 MotoGP and the TBC Big Road Race.
