Details Specification

The ex-Jason Griffiths 2005 Factory 600 Supersport bike  Currently owned and maintained by an ex-TT rider/Road Racer Last lapped the Mountain Circuit on Manx TT demonstration lap  Carefully maintained and immaculately presented  Recent engine refresh 123.6 BHP and 50.22 Nm2 Torque In 2005 Yamaha UK, Evomoto (Ramsey), and Isle of Man Race Techniques Ltd built two Supersport bikes for the 2005 Isle of Man TT. Unfortunately, Yamaha UK failed to record the frame and engine numbers that were used at the 2005 edition of the TT.  Our vendor, who is an accomplished TT and BSB rider, has always believed the bike offered today to be one of the official Yamaha UK bikes as ridden by Jason Griffiths, and thanks to a helpful email from Andrew Hinton we can now confirm that. He writes, "YAR5095000001635/XJ59E011066X was purchased from Selwyn Griffiths (Jason's father) after Aberdare Park in 2005. I was part of the pit crew for Jason throughout 2002 and 2003. The bike was ridden by my younger brother Anthony Hinton and, after competing in British Supersport in 2007, was sold to Will Thornton and then James McBride. Having spoken to James and going through my records I can confirm that it is the Jason Griffiths bike and retains the original engine that was used in 2005." In 2005, this bike ran in both A and B 'Supersport' races with Jason on the podium on both occasions with a 3rd and a 2nd supported by a fastest lap of 122.54mph. During 2015, the R6 was subject to a full nut and bolt restoration with a complete engine rebuild and has only covered 180 miles since. A recent dyno sheet produced by Slick Performance in Andreas suggests an output of 123.60 BHP. In 2015 and 2016 the bike again visited the mountain circuit and took part in a number of parade laps during the Manx TT Festival. A very reliable and competitive machine this bike would appeal to any road racing or track-day enthusiast. There is also a spares package available through separate negotiation.
