After researching the distinctive style of American motorcycles, Yamaha proudly released the XZ1000 Virago in 1984. Features of the Virago along with its teardrop shaped fuel tank and gorgeous double seat, now come accurately reproduced as a plastic assembly model kit. The 981cc V-Twin engine and its cooling fins have been precisely remodeled. In addition, included in the kit are approximately 60 metal plated pieces to depict parts such as the crank case, fender, and exhaust provide the model with an exquisite finish. Both the large diameter front tire and small diameter wide rear tire are depicted with solid rubber and feature a realistic tread pattern.
