1996 Yamaha YZF-750R with 24,000 miles for sale.
We have seen some crazy prices with some of my previous posts - such as the pair of Ducati MH900e's for close to a cool million dollars or the ex-Chili Ducati 916 WSBK race bike - so here's something a bit more affordable but no less fun (if not more - because you won't be constantly thinking of the repair bill if you bin it!):
this is the one you should have had when you were racing.. the ow 1 [I think he meant the OW01] was 22000$ so i guess you didnt get that , this was 8000$. so heres the diff, no snorkels threw the tank, they were a pain any way.
135 hp at 422lbs
128 hp at 435lbs for this one
both had 165mph top speed,
so here she is in all the glory , it has a small scratch on the tank near the cap and a ding on the front fender , most likly from a stone. the foot pegs are barly worn , only a small wear on the outer edge where your boot would rub.. its so clean pix cant show the reality.
check out the seat, yea your passanger will like it, unlike modern bikes that have little pad for rider or passanger.
cool factor, bikes are all the same look these days . this is an era that had flash, you got a fast bike that looked fast.
has excelent tires,, maybe 800 miles on them, carbon vance and hines pipe and thats it.
shes a beauty have a look and a listen
i have a mint rear seat cowl as well its white covers the rear seat
if you r gonna look may as well make offer, or send an e mail , thanks
The YZF-750R was actually very decent sports bike, if it were not for the Honda CBR900 Fireblade that stole the show when it was introduced back in 1992. Fast forward 18 years and things look a bit different - most of us are a bit softer around the edges and with several strands of hair fewer. We are also not chasing the latest and greatest race replica since we can't contort ourselves to fit into that race tuck position for more than 5 minutes. Now classics such as the Yamaha YZF-750R is starting to look like a pretty attractive "softer" sports bike for daily street riding. No matter how you look at it, 125 horses is nothing to sneeze at.
The SP version (with pink, blue, and white graphics, flatslides, and solo seating) is quite a sought after bike as it was never really imported into the US (funnily enough our neighbours up north got a few of those) but for street riding the regular R version is a much better bike. The YZF also has a pretty good fan base - just check out the YZF section on EXUP Worldwide forum. Here's also a pretty good review and buying advice on the YZF750R over at Visordown.
This specific sample, while a bit high on mileage at 24,000 miles looks to be very clean and well taken care of. Aside from the high Buy It Now price (for this time of year) and the somewhat uninformative description (sorry, a pet peeve of mine), this YZF would make a great Christmas tree ornament. If you're shopping for a modern day classic this Christmas, .
MCN did a test comparing a few older bikes (the YZF750 being one of them) with a 2006 GSXR1000 around Cadwell Park, and the results might surprise you:
