YAMAHA DEBUTS THE YZ250F
Amidst all the hype surrounding the first outing of Honda’s RC450, Yamaha also debuted a new bike at the October 22nd race in Japan. That’s right, at the same mud race where Tortelli showed the world the RC450, Ernesto Fonseca proved to the world exactly what the YZ250F was capable of after months of rumors. Ernesto holeshot both motos and after a small battle with the locals, pulled out to a ten second victory in moto one and a twenty second victory in moto two. On hand at the event was the very proud YZ426 and YZ250F Project leader Mr. Nakayama.
