To answer those questions about powerful four-cylinder applications, Parker developed the RADD MC2 (say "MC Squared") from a Yamaha FZ750. Yamaha's Porter took the point in a cooperative effort between Parker, Yamaha Motor U.S. and GKDI, Yamaha's favored styling house at the time. The MC2 was impressive in appearance and technology. It made its world debut on the cover of Motorcyclist's July '87 issue. A more developed design that retained the same fundamental layout as the first prototype, MC2 displayed the same virtues: precise steering, compliant suspension and excellent stability, particularly under braking. It traveled to Japan in secret for exhaustive testing and evaluation at Yamaha and passed.
