1989 Yamaha FZR 400 For Sale-

1989 Yamaha FZR 400 For Sale

Location: Newport Beach, CA
Mileage: 13,500
Price: $5,000 B.I.N.

Following on the heels of Mike’s FZR 400 post is yet another fine example of a timeless machine. Can you feel my love for FZR400’s?

As Mike mentioned in his post, I’ve owned, raced and been enamored with these most of my adult life. It all started in 1990 when I purchased my first sport bike, a 1987 Kawasaki 750R Ninja. My riding buddy had a brand new 1990 FZR 400 with a Vance & Hines Super Sport exhausts. That sweet sound had me at “Hello!”….er…… 14,000 rpm’s. 14k isn’t a big deal today, but back in the day that was balls out and screaming. Okay, so it only screamed to 135mph, but it was touted as the best handling sport bike ever made and can still hold it’s own to this day.

From the seller:

Here it is!, A vintage “hard to find” Yamaha FZR400 Exup / california model. only 13,500 miles !

recently bought & Need to sell for sanity reasons,,, , Needs rightful owner.

Runs Great! Looks Great! no need to say more….

This one looks to be in pretty good shape considering it’s 22 years old. So, if you’re in the market for a nice ride that is bullet proof and sounds like a million bucks-

2006 Ducati Superbike 999R Xerox Repli Racer #16

2006 Ducati Superbike 999R Xerox For Sale

Location: Worcester, MA
Mileage: 5,291
Price: $12,600 at time of writing

Long time friend and viewer, Joe, has submitted (as you just saw) his stunning 999r for your consideration. Even though I imported a lot of pictures there are still more to be seen over at the auction site and yes, they are all as well done as the ones you just drooled over.

Joe says:

Pictures tell the story on condition and it has been recently serviced and is ready to go. This 2006 Ducati Xerox 999R has 5,291 miles on it and is number 16. Along with the bike I am including the distinctive plaque that Ducati gives to its customers and a clean title. The bike is fitted with the race exhaust and ECU along with go fast bits scattered around. The only negitive to offer is a small scuff under the bike on one side from loading into a truck. I was gutted but these things do happen. It can easily be touched up but I decided to leave well enough alone. The scuff is very small and way on the bottom of the bike so it is only visible when laying on the ground next to the bike. I hope it goes to a good home where someone will enjoy it out on the road.

The only thing I can find wrong with this bike is that I won’t be the one taking it out on the road enjoying it 🙁

Ducati makes a few too many LE’s for my taste, but when they build ‘R’ versions they bring it. I know repli racers aren’t everyone’s favorite, but for me they are the ultimate in sport bikes.

When you look at a 999 Superbike you feel the need of speeding even if the motorcycle is parked in your garage, well if you are lucky enough to be one of the owners of this beauty, as the 999R is a very limited edition. The 999R satisfies the needs of even one of the most demanding buyers in this world: it has style; it has power, but in the same time it’s easy on the road and offers one of the best performances in the world. But the 999R does not only offer speed and performance, it also has a stunning design that makes it one of the most beautiful motorcycles in the world.


Good luck with the sale Joe-
