This is Tamiya 14116 1/12 2005 Yamaha YZR-M1 Racing Motorcycle. In 2005, Yamaha celebrated its 50th anniversary and was determined to excel in MotoGP. Going into their 4th year of MotoGP, the YZR-M1 was improved for the 2005 season. The improved features included a 4-stroke inline 4-cylinder 990cc engine that increase top speed and fuel efficiency better than the previous five valve configuration. The bike layout was made more compact by shortening and repositioning the clutch as well as repositioning a centrally-mount cam-driven gear. The fuel tank was modified to have a lower center of gravity and the rear shock attached to the crankcase to provide better handling and stability. The 2005 Yamaha YZR-M1 was hailed a great race bike after the landslide win at the 2005 MotoGP World Championships. Driven by Valentino Rossi, the Yamaha YZR-M1 claimed the world title with a 147-point margin over Marco Melandri from Honda Racing. The world famous YZE-M1 is now replicated as a 1/12 scale model.Its key features are:Highly detailed plastic piecesAccurately reproduced twin-tube delta box frame and inline4-cylinder engineFront and side fairings can be removed after assemblySynthetic rubber front and rear tiresHigh quality Cartograf decals for both Valentino Rossiand Colin Edwards machinesTwo types of fairing markingsTiny screwdriver is includedIllustrated instructions with paint/marking guide includedPaints needed: Racing Blue, Black, Gloss Aluminum, Semi-Gloss Black,White, Red, Lemon Yellow, Gunmetal, Chrome Silver, Gold Leaf, Metallic Blue, Clear Orange, Titanium Gold, Titanium Silver, Metallic Brown, Flat Black, Flat Aluminum, Metallic GrayCondition: Factory NewOperational Status: FunctionalOriginal Box: YesManufacturer: TamiyaModel Number: 14116MSRP: $70.00Category 1: Other ToysCategory 2: Model KitsAvailability: Ships in 3 to 6 Business Days.The Trainz SKU for this item is P12000175.
