Rev happy import: 1989 Yamaha FZR400R

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.

1989 Yamaha FZR400R for sale on eBay

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.

I am selling several grey market bikes. Please check my other listings or inquire as to availability. I may be able to assist with delivery at a competitive rate. I ask that a non-refundable deposit of $500 be paid within 24 hours of purchase, and the balance be paid within seven days. Thank you for taking interest in my listing. Feel free to call or text with questions to 423 747 3265

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.

  • Nice FZR400! I spent plenty of time on one of these as my first racebike, a 1990 US model. Perfect first race bike – TOTALLY gutless below 10k (first time I got on it after riding a 750 on the street I literally thought it ran out of gas when I let the revs drop below 10k). Even from 10k – redline it only makes 52hp so a hamfisted novice can’t go too far wrong. But boy do they handle nicely. Would be nice to know what differences there are between this model and the US market bikes other than the bodywork and Exup servo? From what I can tell in the pics, the mechanicals are the same. If that’s the case, it seems the value of this one should be right in line with values of clean US market bikes.

  • Sold for $2,878?!!
