Yet another Japanese micro rocket from our friends at Deftone Cycles, this quarter-liter 1986 Yamaha FZR250 represents the smallest offering in the FZR line, and was a grey-market import everywhere except Japan. Though it sits on tiny tires and rocks a single-disc front brake to match, do not make the mistake of under estimating this bike.
The inline-four spins its tiny pistons to a dizzying 18,000 rpm, pushing out a very impressive 45 horsepower along the way. Sure, that may not sound like much, but on a bike this light with tires that skinny, you will have your hands full. Save your momentum, learn to brake late and light, and see who you can surprise.
This FZR250 comes from the first year of the model's production run and looks like it is in pristine shape. There appears to be a small scratch on the left-side fairing, some crazing on the jet-black exhaust and a tiny tear on the pillion seat, but beyond that this thing shines.
It is all original save the windscreen and has covered less than 12,000 miles. From the seller:
