Yamaha DS7 250 History - Yamaha YDS7 Classic

Inspired by the race bikes of the late 1960's, the Yamaha DS7 250 (or also called YDS7) was lighter and slimmer than its predecessors. It was yet another step towards the famous Yamaha RD series with reed valve induction system. The mighty Yamaha YDS7 was introduced to the market in 1972 and soon became popular amongst racing bikes enthusiasts.

Yamaha DS7 Specifications

DS7 had air cooled 250cc twin two stroke engine with piston port controlled fuel injection. The crankcase housed 5-speed gears with a chain drive transmission, the front wheel as well as rear wheel were fitted with expandable drum brakes. It also had only manual kick start. There was no need to pre-mix fuel and oil, the oil tank and the fuel tank were kept separate with sight glass into oil tank providing rider access to check the levels.

Early Yamaha models were easily identified with engine numbers matching the frame numbers, usually introduced in a specific colour signifying the year it was made. 1972 Yamaha DS7 was produced in Candy Orange colour with Serial No: DS7-100101-125298.
