Made famous by the legendary Kenny Roberts in 1980 the TZ500 was an in line, 4 cylinder, two stroke race bike built for private race teams in order to enter the 500GP series. As Yamaha's last production GP Racer the version was built in very low numbers making our unused example extremely rare!

What does it do for me?

Exterior Protection - All exterior paintwork is treated with a unique protective coating. This protective coating will enhance the paintwork shine and ensure maximum resistance to environmental hazards from bird lime to tree sap, even the severest winter conditions. The glossy water repellent coating is easier to keep clean and maintains a superbly glossy shine.

Upholstery Protection - Upholstery (fabrics and leather) and all carpeted areas are treated with a durable water resistant coating to seal out moisture and resist staining. Accidental spillages simply bead on the surface, whilst dust and sticky marks are easily removed.

Glass Protection - All external side and rear windows are treated with a long-term, optically clear, non-stick, easy to remove coating. As you drive the raindrops roll off to give greatly improved wet weather visibility and safety.

Peace of Mind - With the life shine system you will receive a fantastic lifetime warranty for any issues that may arise from the daily use of your car.
