1986 Yamaha SRX600
Frame no. 1XL002432
Engine no. 1XL002432
Having used its XT500 dirt-bike engine to create a stylish retro roadster in the form of the SR500, Yamaha repeated the trick for the 1980s with the SRX600, which used the four-valve motor from the Ténéré trail bike. (Curiously, although Yamaha sales literature referred to it as the ‘SRX600’ the side panels were badged ‘SRX-6’). Whatever the nomenclature, Bike magazine liked its test SRX’s flexibility, frugality and excellent handling and braking; they even appreciated the styling: ‘ – a sharp, sporty image defined by the clean lines of an exposed square-section, double cradle frame, its bolt-up lower rails hugging that slim and handsome motor; a grateful absence of plastic frippery and cycle parts instead embellished with a plethora of polished alloy.’ Vital statistics included a weight of 345lbs, top speed bang on the ‘ton’ and an overall fuel consumption in excess of 50 miles per gallon. The SRX has become something of a ‘cult’ bike since its deletion and today good examples are highly sought after. And they don’t get any better than this one, which was delivered new to Atkins Motorcycles in Taunton and has remained in a dry, warm showroom ever since. Unregistered, the machine is offered with DVLA Form V55 enabling it to be registered for the road in the UK.
