A repliracer at heart, the 3XV is the last and arguably the most sought-after generation of the Yamaha TZR250 – the lovely little V-Twin motor doesn’t hurt, either. Only sold in Japan originally, the 3XVs were offered in a variety of trims, all of which were limited to 45 horsepower by the Japanese government.
The 249cc V-Twin produced 29.5 lb-ft of torque along with the 45 horsepower, and it was paired with the Yamaha Power Valve System (YPVS) and a 6-speed transmission. Dry weight was just 278 pounds, which is why these bikes are an absolute joy to enjoy on a twisty road. Many owners also derestrict the motors to open up additional power.
The TZR250 was most commonly sold in Yamaha’s racing colors of red and white, however a few were offered in a black/grey livery with dashes of pink.
This example is VIN: 3XV001867. The seller acquired it three years ago from noted 2-stroke collector Gary Mortensen of White Knuckle Motorsports in Springville, Utah.
