Buy the Pair: 1988 and 1990 Yamaha FZR400

The Yamaha FZR 400 is the kind of bike that manages to get ignored by wide swathes of the motorcycling population, but instill deep devotion in those who have discovered its fantastic chassis, sprightly engine and general friendliness.

That appears to have been the case here, as the seller has not one, but two FZR 400s, and from two different eras of the 14,000 RPM featherweight. The 1988 model has covered a few more miles,  but wears Yamaha's iconic red and white livery and fantastic "pure sportsgraphics. The 1990 is slightly lower mileage, but wears the still cool but not as pretty later livery.

FZR cognoscenti will also know that the '90 should make the better rider's bike and track day machine, as it has bigger, four-pot front discs and an aluminum Deltabox swingarm, as opposed to the older model's square steel unit. Either bike will be a more engaging ride than the heavier, flexier, less-special FZR600 that was available at the same time.

With about 60 horses pushing about 400 pounds, the FZR400 is no slouch, especially for its size and its lovely inline four responds beautifully to revs.

The ask for each bike is in the upper echelon of what one should reasonably expect for these bikes. They are each in beautiful condition and apparently need nothing, but are not likely to gain much more value. That said, they likely won't take a plunge any time soon, either.

  • Seller looks like the flykitty motor sports outfit. He seems to have a great eye for used bikes.

  • The early bikes swinger is aluminum as well.
