name that motorcycle

i'm sure everyone here knows what bimota model names are about. first letter--whose motor. second letter--b. number a sequantial number based on how many models have come out with engines from that manufacturer.

for example;
sb6--gsx-r1100 mill
sb7--don't remember, gsx-r750 i thinks
sb8--tl1000 mill

then there are the ever famous yb's.

one yb is really unique (almost as odd as the tesi was). it's the yb7, what about the motor made it so unique in the bimota family of motorcycles?

no cheating!!!!

btw, this is EASY!!!!

i'm just happy you guys aren't researching the yb7 on the web.

i can't answer that question, because i don't know if it was, no do i know if any other bimotas do or don't use the engine as a stress member. so a 1,000 points to desmo. (remember the points don't matter )

kevlar, is really onto something (this is an easy question on what makes the motor different). it uses 4 30mm carbs. anything seem odd about the size of the carbs?

well, 30mm carbs sounds kinda small... Aren't most carbs around 38mm and up? Maybe they used smaller carb throats inorder to acheive higher intake velocity. Am I getting warmer?

The YB7 had the engine of the bike that appears in FZR400Tony's name
That's why the carbs are 30mm, actually they are not small, they are big!

PS: I didn't have to cheat for this It's also a good idea to create this kind of trivia that people can find without using google.

Usually I try to create 'googleproof' trivias, but it's not easy
