Yamaha FZR400s were available in the States for a good part of their run, and attracted a loyal club racing following thanks to liter-bike embarrassing corner speeds and engines that begged for revs. This 1989 Yamaha FZR400R is an import from the UK, and carries the bulbous front end from the legendary OW01 and a few go bits we didn't get.
With a Tennessee title and registration already secured, it shouldn't be too difficult to get the bike plated anywhere. The '89 FZR400R carries the aluminum Deltabox swingarm and four-pot brakes that didn't make our shores until the 1990 Fizzers broke cover.
It looks to be in decent condition overall, with about 15,500 miles on the clock. The fairings and paint look decent overall, but the bike shows minor rash down the left side.
From the eBay listing:
Up for No Reserve Auction is this completely stock Yamaha 3EN2 FZR400R. These rarities are little brothers to the Yamaha ow01 FRZ750R superbike. This all aluminum cycle displays its age well, and is in great shape, with only light scrapes and minor corrosion. The bike has been registered, tagged, and titled, in Tennessee.

Footage shows the bike on or near The Tail of the Dragon in the East Tennessee hills in warmer months. Those days are just around the corner, and the bike is ready and willing for a new rider to experience its cornering prowess.
