I've always been interested in big multi two-smokes like TZ's, but I have never seen that one. What is it?

It's a NSR, probably Max Biaggi. Could be a 250 though.

Biaggi rode a Marlboro Yamaha 500 some. 250's were twins in that era.

The picture on the wall above the engine could be a NSR250. Biaggi rode a Marlboro-sponsored NSR250. Look at the fairing: You can just make out the NS in NSR.



The engine on the stand is obviously a 500 v-4.
