Description

Additional photos 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 FZR1000 was capable of a 155 mph top speed and was a trendsetter with its Deltabox aluminum frame and 5-valve Genesis engine. Interestingly, this same five-valve engine architecture would become the basis of Yamaha’s V8 Formula One car for the 1989 series. Along with a stout engine and a futuristic frame, the new FZR also wore lightweight 17″ wheels front and rear and very modern looking bodywork.

This example is VIN: 3GM002399. Based on the VIN, this is an import – the seller purchased the bike five years ago from White Knuckle Motorsports.

During his ownership, the seller has covered approximately 13 miles. The odometer shows 26,455 kilometers (16,438 miles).
