Click here for an CycleVIN Motorcycle History Report on this 1992 Yamaha FZR1000. Additional photos of this are available here for your perusal.

First unveiled at the 1986 Cologne Motorcycle Show, the Yamaha FZR1000 was a watershed model that marked the dawn of the tuning fork company’s first foray into big-bore four-stroke superbikes. The predecessor to potent two-stroke models like the parallel-twin RD350 and V4 RD500, the “Fizzer” as it was affectionately known, entered production in 1987 as an advanced water-cooled, 989cc, four-stroke inline-four with DOHC, a five-speed transmission, and the same 20-valve (5-per) setup first seen on the FZ750 in ’85.

With 130 hp on tap and a curb weight of a bit over 500 lbs, the first generation FZR1K — also called the “Genesis” — was capable of a 155 mph top speed. Interestingly, this same five-valve engine architecture would become the basis of Yamaha’s V8 Formula One car for the 1989 series. The FZR1000’s engine was also later utilized by Bimota in the YB10. Though the company came out swinging with the first generation, Yamaha heavily revamped the model in ’89 with what was almost an entirely new design, sharing only a small number of elements with the outgoing version.

Among all the changes made to the model such as the addition of four-pot calipers, there were three that most stood out: the first of which was its new diamond Deltabox II chassis. The second major update for ’89 was an increase in displacement from 989cc up to 1,002cc’s, while the third was the introduction its “EXUP” (Exhaust Ultimate Power) valve system which consisted of an electronic servo-motor-controlled valve in the exhaust that optimized airflow, boosted power, and smoothed out the entire rev-range.

Another side effect was an additional 15 hp (almost 1 hp per cc added!) bringing the figure to 145 hp at 10,000rpm and 80 ft-lbs of torque at 8,500rpm. Dubbed the FZR1000 EXUP, the 1989 model was capable of lightning-fast 2.9-second 0-60mph times, 10-second standing quarter-mile runs, and a top speed of around 170 mph, making it the fastest production bike on earth and prompting the guys at Cycle World to crown the Yamaha “Bike of the Decade”. It remained in production until eventually being replaced by the now-legendary YZF-R1 superbike.

The seller of this example (VIN: JYA3LKC09NA020286) acquired it in 2006 from a friend.

During that time he covered approximately 7,000 miles. The odometer now shows 13,512 miles.

Cosmetically, this FZR has a custom paint job.


There are some minor chips in the paint.

We also note a “R1”-branded tank pad.

Mechanically, this got the “10k plus service” 2 months ago. It also has a Yoshimura exhaust.

The seller states that there are no mechanical issues. He is only letting it go as he does not have time to ride it anymore. Currently located at our facility in Santa Monica, California (please make an appointment if you’d like to inspect it), this FZR is offered on a clean California title with non-op registration.
