These new British-built road-going two-strokes inspired by the factory Yamaha OW16’s of Giacamo Agostini in the seventies are being built for sale in Preston!
An all-new road-going replica, and a race version, will be shown at the Motorcycle Live Show at the NEC, Birmingham later on this month.
The Peregrine Motorcycle Company, based in Preston in Lancashire, has created the new 392cc two-strokes to be easily adaptable for road or track by removing the lights when they're not being used on the road.
The Tig-welded frames are based on the original works Yamahas with updated geometry and some extra room built-in for road use, when compared to the cramped Yamaha GP bikes raced by the likes of Agostini and Jarno Saarinen.
The bikes are claimed to make more than 70bhp at the rear wheel at a heady 9500rpm and weigh in at just 120kg dry weight.
The Peregrine uses high quality British-made equipment to bring the two-stroke racer back to the masses!
