Very clean 1996 Yamaha YZF-750R

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:

2006 Yamaha 50th Anniversary R1

False alarm- Thanks to everyone who has set me straight on this model.

2006 Yamaha LE 50th Anniversary R1

Location: New Haven, IN
Price: $6,850.00 B.I.N. (!)
Mileage: 13,623

So.... I know I'll probably catch some 'stuff' for posting this one when there are better ones to be had. But, I always like finding a "gem in the rough" and I think this one fits that category quite well. We usually see these floating around for sale in the $12,000 to $13,000 range, but this one is being offered at almost half the super low mileage LE's we've previously had on RSBFS. I think this is an absolute steal for this bike and I have a sneaky suspicion as to why it might still be for sale. It is listed on ebay as a 2006 Honda Shadow Yamaha R1.

In case you're wondering about the seller it appears they are on the up and up, but they just placed this one in the wrong category.

Have a look:

For Sale 2006 Yamaha R1 LE 50th Anniversary Edition With the Marchesini mag rims runs and rides great only thing i can find wrong is a small scratch on the right side of the upper fairing and a small crack in the tail that are very hard to see

to see this one.

Okay, so you're not down with a high mileage collectible rider. I also found this listed on ebay as well.

Cheers!

1999 Yamaha YZF-R7 In Southern California With An Asking Price Of $20,000

This is the real deal, a 1999 YZF-R7!  Located in Spring Valley, California is a 1999 Yamaha YZF-R7 titled and registered in California.  This example has been used with 21,835km (13,567mi) on the clock.  The seller states that the bike is "All stock with the stage 1 mod, white wire cut activating the second set of injectors, full AKRO exhaust."  No mention of the replacement crank or other maintenance history is made however, I'm going to assume the bike is in pretty good condition based on the photos.  In March, we saw an R7 out of Florida with 2,800km on the clock and an asking price of $26,500 which can be seen here.  See our other R7 postings here.  The pricing on this one seems good for an R7 but, a little high for one with 13k miles.  The seller does state that they are firm on the price and that "If you don't want to pay the price go buy a different R7."  Err, good point.  The R7 was Yamaha's homologation bike for World SuperBike when they were racing 750cc inline-fours and is truly exotic; not sharing anything with the mundane R1 except for it's look.  If you're looking for a usable R7, have a look at this nice example in Southern California here.

1998 Yamaha R1 in the sought after Red & White color scheme

1998 Yamaha YZF-R1 with only 6,180 miles on the clock.

Located in Louisville, KY with a firm asking price of $5,400.00 is this cherry R1. Every so often 'the ones' are produced in the motorcycle world and this is one of 'the ones'. For me, growing up watching and dreaming of motorcycles there are some that stick out:

- 1986 Suzuki GSXR 750
- 1986 Kawasaki 900R - Thanks to Tom & Kelly
- 1988-90 FZR 400 (had to throw it in) 🙂
- 1994 Ducati 916
- 1998 Yamaha YZF-R1

I know everyone has their own opinion of landmark bikes, but those are just a few that stick out to me as monumental bikes. Okay, okay so the 400's don't belong, but you get my point.

In 1998 I really wanted to purchase one exactly like this, but the local Yamaha dealer didn't have any in stock, nor were they willing to wheel and deal on bikes that were selling like hot cakes. Since I'm thrifty by nature the "no discount" turned me off so, I ended up picking up a 98 ZX-9R instead and have regretted it ever since. I didn't keep the 9R very long because I was disenchanted with it and grew tired of kicking myself for not buying the R1. So every time I see one of these I think of days gone by, should have's, and never did's. I think this one is priced a little steep, but I imagine someone out there shares my passion for this particular model and will pony up for it.

From the listing:

-Exceptional Condition

-Extremely Low Miles-6180

-Sought After Red/White Color Combination

-Only Modifications Are Full D & D Pipe, Appropriate Jetting, Flush Mount Turn Signals, and Fender Eliminator Kit

-Excellent Original Paint And Decals

Check out the flames at 7 seconds in this video I found.

Cheers!

2006 Yamaha R1 Limited Edition–Still in the crate

Again, I know R1s aren't rare but, the LEs are and this one is still in the crate.  Located in Cedar Hills, Oregon is a 2006 Yamaha R1 Limited Edition in unused condition.  To quote the seller:

I have a 2006 Yamaha YZF-R1 Limited Edition for sale. This is one of only 500 ever produced, and still in the original crate at my warehouse. It's in pristine condition, has never turned a wheel except maybe after it rolled off the assembly line and into it's shipping container.  This bike sold for $18,000 new, and I purchased it primarily as a collector's item never intending to use it. A nice display piece for sure, but would be great for weekend rides, or track days for someone who wants one of the best all time sportbikes, unmatched for it's speed, powerful engine and superb handling.  The bike is still in the crate, but I will be happy to assemble and service it for the new owner. I am a career Honda, Yamaha, Kawasaki, and Suzuki tech.  A factory service manual, owner's manual, and Limited Edition R1 tool kit will be included with purchase.

The asking price is $12,995.  So, if you missed the Limited Editions around the first time or you're a very serious collector, this might be the bike for you.  Sorry, no photos.  See the Craigslist ad here.

Surfing the Local CL ads: 1997 Yamaha YZR1000R Thunderace For Sale

Here's another open class bike that caught my attention recently while surfing the local Craigslist motorcycle section - a cherry 1997 Yamaha YZR1000R Thunderace in black and gray. This one has 26k miles and is listed for $5800:

quote from seller's Craigslist ad:

One ownwer, 1997 Yamaha YZF1000R Thunderace, 1997 Sportbike of the year. Produced for one year only. Very RARE. Still one of the best handling most powerful bikes on the road.
Black/Silver, 26,000 miles, never down and never abused (no wheelies/stoppies)
Tuned (including having cams 'degreed') by Eric Dorn at EDR Performance, full Akropovic Titanium exhaust, K&N air filter, HeliBars, Attack rear sets, steel front brake lines, smoke windscreen, nearly new Pilot Power tires
I know of no maintenance issues with this bike. It is ready to ride.

$5800 sounds a bit lofty for this under appreciated bike, especially with such mileage. Not saying the bike is in jeopardy as a result of mileage, but at this price, I'd expect a lot less. The images sure do represent a well look after example though. I'll do some research to find out for sure like I did on the CBR900RR entries I posted recently.

After my ride to the Olympic Peninsula this past summer, I've been contemplating a more appropriate touring machine. The Ducati made the trip fine, but I felt terrible as it sat in the pouring rain overnight. While all it would've needed was a decent cover to avoid being totally neglectful, it got me to thinking about what a better mount might of looked like for such a task. Something tells me a bike like this with proper luggage might fit the bill and then some!
