At 308lbs wet and 50hp on tap, the seller says this 85 TZR250 will keep up with RZ350 with no problem, and I don’t doubt it. This attractive little package is the first year for the TZR250 and was originally sold in Japan. Today’s example has received some freshening and is exceptionally clean to my eye!
from the seller:
1985 yamaha tzr250 1kt now being offered. It is a 1st year very rare bike that was not exported out side of japan until 1987 and never brought into the United States. It has a clear florida title and is registered under my name. After being shipped here i began a 2 year restoration project, where it was striped to the frame and completely rebuilt.
