I wouldn't know where to begin. I know a little bit about the 250s but nothing about the 500s. I'm hoping to learn a little too. Ade and Noel know a lot about them. I'm sure others do as well.

We got some of these in Australia and some RZ500's and that was about the last of them for out here. A friend had the Yamaha and it was a little quicker in a straight line than my Ducati MHR Mille however at Phillip Island the Ducati was quicker around the track, the Yamaha didn't have the handling of the Ducati.

I was working on my project with the 2 stroke shop on getting an RS500, but apparently everything fell apart (concept, parts, machine, partnership....), so now I am flying solo on this new project.
The RS 250 frame houses a rd 350 motor. the motor can be bored out to 496, but a company has gotten about 110hp out of the 485 (the increase from there is not that dramatic). The biggest issue was heat control for city use (but if you have an MV you are already accustom to this....)
RD350 parts/kit/aftermarket parts/support/replacements/tuners are so plentiful, because of their long run and how yamaha has kept the motor going in other vehicles, I cant even think of the word to describe it.
It is like the 2 stroke version of the gsxr 1100 motor trilogy.
Dont let it put you off that it is a twin.
pushing a streetable 110hp to roughly about 260lbs is fucking awesome. :-)
And you know how 2 strokes are, so you could make this puppy into something insane (130 - 140 but you may have a grenade, but no problem! parts are cheap!)
Will a 4 cyl 500 2T outrun this down to the first turn? Maybe. And that is a real Maybe.
If they get to the turn at the same time will the 4cyl beat it around? No. unless it is K.R. Jr. riding :-)
When you seize a piston in your four cyl 2t, your wait for part ill most definetly be remenicent of waiting for parts for your MV.... if you even find it :-)!
If you are going to ride the crap outta the thing, i would put smart money on building up a big bore RD350 motor in a RS 250 chassis. Both proven winners and modern enough to make you drool.

And the development keeps coming, a race shop just developed a EFI kit for this motor!?!?
I am waiting to see the results of this................ :-)

either way brother, per tu due tempi 500 per pista o strada, bona suerte
