Description

Additional photos of this Yamaha TZR250 RS are available here for your perusal.

The Yamaha TZR250 was manufactured and sold from 1986 until 1995 in three main iterations exclusively for the Japanese market, never being officially imported to 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.

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 produced the 3XV in three different trim levels, including the R, the RS (Racing Sport), and the ultra-limited SP (Sport Production). The RS – like the one shown here – featured several upgrades over the base R model, such as a dry clutch and some adjustable suspension.

This example is VIN: 3XV080713.

The odometer shows 4,658 kilometers (2,894 miles).

Maintenance:
This motorcycle came to us from a collection in Japan – maintenance history is not known. In preparation for the listing, the seller had us replaced the battery, the grips, the mirrors and the tires. We also flushed the coolant, changed the oil and filter, cleaned and synced the carbs, flushed the brake calipers, and cleaned the airbox. Olly did the work, he notes in his condition report that the headlights, turn signals, tail light, brake light, kill switch, and horn are all functioning correctly.

Modifications:
According to this site, the VIN of 3XV080713 corresponds to a 1992 RS model. However the bodywork appears to be from a 1994 RS model.

TZR250 SP (up-spec) forks and swingarm.

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






The right fairing is OEM but we believe the decals are aftermarket. It is missing the “Racing Sport” decals.

Inside of the tank:

It is riding on Bridgestone Battlax RS10 tires with date codes of 3421 and 3521.

The sale includes three keys.
