History of motorcycles

The Yamaha XS 650 was launched in 1968 it had one of the most advanced engines of its class of large parallel twin motorcycles. The engine and gearbox are unit construction with the crankcase split horizontally for ease of assembly whereas almost all contemporaries in its class in 1968 are either unit construction with a vertically split crankcase or per unit construction with separate engine and gearbox. The XS650's engine was used in AMA professional Dirt Track Racing by national champion Kenny Roberts. In 1968 only the Laverda 750s, also launched that year, matched the XS 650's modernity of unit construction and SOHC valve operation.
