Description

Additional photos of this Yamaha FZR400RR are available here for your perusal.

At a time when Japanese manufacturers were getting increasingly aggressive and race-oriented with their 400s to compete in their domestic Formula 3 championship, Yamaha introduced the FZR400 in 1986 as a bike to be enjoyed “on twisty public roads where the customers would actually be riding and enjoying them.” For more on the FZR400, check out this excellent profile on Yamaha’s site where they talk about the challenges of it being the first motorcycle to use “full-fledged radial tires” and how they fought the urge to implement quick steering like their competition to create something that consumers would enjoy more on the street.

But Yamaha did not stop there – in 1989 they debuted an up-spec model called the FZR400RR, but they did not offer it in America. Claimed hp was 60 out of the 399cc horsepower, enough for a top speed of 122 miles per hour.

The RR also boasted a cosmetic upgrade which made it look like a baby OW-01 with the flush-mount headlights.

This example is VIN: 1WG081599. The seller acquired it eight months ago from a private party in New Jersey, however he is having difficulty importing it to his home country and the bike needs a new home.

The odometer shows 9,452 kilometers (5,873 miles).

Modifications:
Battery tender lead.

Cosmetic Blemishes: please see the album up top for all known cosmetic blemishes. Here is a selection:





Inside of the tank:

It is riding on a Bridgestone Battlax S22 Hypersport front tire and a Bridgestone Battlax BT014 rear tire with date codes of 2711 and 4720.

The sale includes one key.
