QB Yamaha R71

First came the R1, then the R6 followed by the R7, but with the arrival of the revolutionary QB Carbon R71 the R series was complete and performance motorcycling would never be the same again because the R71 changed the face of the superbike riding scene forever...and threw the rule book out of the window.

Using the R1's extremely compact 998cc 5-valve in line 4-cylinder engine equipped with a revolutionary 3-axis transmission, unique to the R-series motorcycles this space saving gearbox design permits the use of a short-wheelbase GP500-style chassis together with a long swinging arm for highly agile handling characteristics. To ensure world-class road handling the limited-edition R71 runs with World Superbike developed Ohlins front and rear suspension systems.

In the year 2000 The QB Carbon R71's of V&M Racing and Temple Auto Salvage combined with riders David Jefferies, Michael Rutter and Ian Lougher took all the major honours in road racing including win's at both Irelands North West 200 and the Isle of Man TT.
