The Yamaha TZR250 was manufactured and sold from 1986 until 1995 in three main iterations exclusively for the Japanese market, never being officially sold in the United States. Born out of the RD250, the model evolved from the more modest parallel twin 250 two stroke of the 2MA and 3MA variants to the 90-degree v-twin 3XV version shown here.

In the early 90’s the Japanese manufacturers were in an arms race to create the most advanced 250cc repli-racers for license limited riders and track racers alike. These small quarter liter bikes were very different from the budget small cc bikes produced today to meet the needs of restricted license holders, they were brimming with the latest race bred technology and excellent build quality. While restricted to 45 HP to meet the Japanese rules of the time, de-restriction and tuning could release a lot more power. The 3XV could even be further modified by using TZ250R race bike engine parts (such as cylinders) to increase power, unlike the Honda NSR250 that shared almost nothing in common with the RS250R race model. Many TZR’s therefore found their way into club racing and local track days proving to be very capable, even by today’s standards.

Yamaha also produced a limited run of SP (Sports Production) models which featured a dry clutch, adjustable suspension front/rear, and several improvements to allow for even more power when de-restricted: cylinders, heads, electrics, and exhaust. Production was limited to 500 units a year and it was the model to get.

This example (VIN: 3XV045334) is one of over thirty motorcycles that we are auctioning off from the Alan Wilzig collection over the next couple of weeks.

During his ownership, Alan has kept it exclusively on display and has not ridden it. The odometer shows 1,873 kilometers (1,163 miles).

In preparation for the listing, we cleaned and synced the carbs, flushed the coolant, changed the oil/filter, installed a battery, rebuilt the forks, and cleaned/flushed the rear caliper, brake line, and master cylinder.

Olly worked on this and notes that it’s one of the cleanest TZRs he’s ever seen – both outside and inside of the bodywork.

Modifications:
We believe this bike is completely stock.

Cosmetic Blemishes:


Note the rear master cylinder.

Inside of the tank:

It is riding on Dunlop D202 Sport Radial tires that have aged out.

The sale includes two keys, the owner’s manual, and some spare parts.
