The Tamiya 1/12 Yamaha YZR-500 (0W70) Taira Version from the plastic motorcycle model kits range accurately recreates the real life Japanese sports motorbike. This model requires paint and glue to complete.

We also stock the full range of Tamiya Paints, Glues and Modelling Accessories required to complete this model.

This re-issue of a 1999 Tamiya model recreates the Yamaha YZR500 (0W70) ridden by Japanese racer Tadahiko Taira in the 1983 season, in which he started a run of three successive All Japan 500cc Road Race titles. The bike was equipped with a water-cooled 4-cylinder engine that featured upper and lower pairs of cylinders in a V-shaped layout with the carburetor in between for a compact layout. It put out over 140hp. Yamaha also provided a ground-breaking aluminium frame which paved the way for the Deltabox frame.

Model Features:

  • The unique layout of the bike is accurately captured, with precise depictions of front/side cowls, fuel tank, frame and more.
  • 2-stroke V4 engine is recreated in excellent detail, right down to individual lengths of vinyl tubing for ignition cords.
  • Markings are included to recreate Tadahiko Taira’s 1983 All Japan 500cc Road Race winning bike.
