This Yamaha YZR500 OWJ1 was ridden by Kenny Roberts, Jr. for Team Marlboro Yamaha (which was managed by his father, Kenny Roberts, Sr.) during the 1996 World Championship. The OWJ1 was the final factory Yamaha that King Kenny was involved with before he left in 1997 to start his own team.
We have been told that this is the only OWJ1 in the world outside of Yamaha’s factory.
This bike is extra special in that it is in full running order. (A rare case for competition race bikes) This bike participated in the 2022 Goodwood Festival of Speed as part of Class 15: Two-Wheel Grand Prix Heroes and was ridden up the hill twice.
