1985 Yamaha TZR250 1KT for sale

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!

  • Wheels are supposed to be red. Wrong decals. Mine is ’85 also. Doing motor as we speak. These don’t come up often here. I think there are more around but people are sitting on them. My gut says these should go big but just not seeing it in UK. Their values usually higher than here in states but these could break that pattern. Hoping!

  • Me likey!
    Going to be interesting to see how much it will bring.

  • price with shipping cost to malaysia..

    • Oh no Sham. US law does not allow 2 stroke imports to leave our soil. LOLOLOLOLOL

  • It’s not totally orginal but it’s not hard to fix that rddecals makes the proper kit seat cover is wrong color should be dark navy blue.

    1kt is a japanese model restricted in cdi to 45 hp UK models unrestricted and canadian models.

  • Currently at $6000 – a little high for such an inaccurate restoration.

  • are red wheels faster ?? & blue seats transmit better input ? sad to think think the new owner may never set it up and wind it out.

  • I just bought this bike, what a happy guy I am. I paid $6,684.30

  • GOOD DEAL,congrats, pass a liter bike for in the corners some dont know that 2 stroke smell

  • prediction ; 3 years ten grand + . even if ridden to shows & meets,not trialerd.
