Newly introduced for 1981, the Yamaha XJ750 Seca was basically a stretched version of the preceding XJ650, a model that had benefited from considerable input from European motorcyclists, relayed back to Japan via Yamaha Motor NV in Holland. The result was an accomplished, light-middleweight all-rounder possessing maintenance-free shaft drive (one of the best of its day), a comfortable ride, accurate steering, secure handling and strong brakes. Only the four-cylinder engine came in for criticism that it was too peaky and insufficiently economical, shortcomings Yamaha addressed a couple of years later by introducing its YICS linked induction system that was also applied to the XJ550 and 750 Seca. Bike magazine managed to coax a top speed of 120.9mph out of a Seca in 1982 (other tests achieved higher speeds) and achieved an overall fuel consumption 37 miles per gallon, a figure acknowledged as improvable on. This example has not been used since it was treated to a full 'last nut and bolt' restoration in 2013, with no part left untouched. Described by the vendor as in generally excellent condition, this collectible classic Yamaha is offered with two old MoT certificates (most recent expired February 2014) and V5C registration document.
