The YZR500 (OW98) came out in 1988, which proved to be an outstanding year for Yamaha.


The company won the Manufacturers Championship for the third straight year, with a season highlighted by Yamaha bikes capturing first, second, and third in the 500 cc class at the Austrian GP, the seventh race of the series. Lawson also won his third World Grand Prix title. 1989 marked the release of the OWA8, which incorporated a data recording system that sensed the bike’s performance while it was being ridden. And, in 1990, Yamaha took its sixth Manufacturers Championship with the OWC1.
