Yep that was the idea! Bimota essentially invented the aluminium spar chassis with the YB4. Yhe chassis is still a thing of beauty even today.
Yamaha flogged the idea and used it on the 87-88 genesis FZR750-1000, and the OW01 a year later. The motor in the YB4 was a fuel injected FZ750 engine, in comparison the OW01 was the factory TT racer donk.
The 87-88 FZR750 was actually a homologation special, with better forks, longer harder chrome moly conrods, lighter pistons and close ratio gearbox standard. And a decent race kit you could purchase.
