Among the many Japanese riders challenging the World Road Race GP, the radical riding of Norifumi "Norick" Abe has sparked much interest. Making his debut at age 13, he was later promoted to the International "A" class, where he blew across the finish line to take the 500cc Championship of the 1993 All Japan Road Race.

In 1994, Norick burst onto the world scene with an incredible "wildcard" ride in the Japanese GP of the World Road Race, racing neck and neck with top riders like K. Schwantz and M. Doohan. Subsequently, riding the YZR500, he achieved repeat 6th place finishes in the Czech Rep. GP and American GP, earning recognition on the world scene as his undoubted talent had long promised to.

From the 1995 season, he began full participation in the World Road Race GP, invariably securing top-10 finishes in the annual rankings of 1996, 1997 and 1998. In 1999, the Spanish television station, Antena 3 became the main sponsor of the bike, and the team became to be known as Antena 3 Yamaha D'Antin.

Their impressive YZR500 adopts a crank case reed valve, 2-cycle V4 cylinder, 499cc engine with YPVS (Yamaha Power Valve System), secured by a delta-box frame. The YZR500 as been equipped with one more clever feature, a side mounted wing, which ensures down force on the front of the bike.

One of the five Yamaha YZR500 motorcycles from three teams entered in the World Road Race GP, the machine of the Antena 3 Yamaha D'Antin continues its unstoppable assault of the World Road Race.
