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.

A significant update in 1989 brought a new diamond Deltabox II chassis, an increase in displacement from 989cc up to 1,002cc’s, and the debut of the “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. Power went up to 145 hp at 10,000rpm and 80 ft-lbs of torque at 8,500rpm. Dubbed the FZR1000 EXUP, the new 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 R1.

Manufactured in January of 1994. This example is VIN: JYA3LKE02RA026319. The seller acquired it in 2018 at the Barber Motorsports Park Vintage Festival from Southwest Superbikes.

During his ownership, the seller has covered roughly 2,100 miles. The odometer shows 15,399 miles.

The seller has replaced the fork seals, cleaned the carb, and installed a new battery.
