We’ve seen a run of early FZR’s here on RSBFS as of late. And that’s cool by me. I’ve only had the opportunity to ride one early FZR (owned by a buddy of mine) back in the day, and that one was a 600. But I loved it. The bike in my garage at the time was a Hurricane 600 and the FZR was a much more track oriented bike. While the CBR was more comfortable, the FZR had an edge that we all liked. And it looked cool as hell too.
What we have here is a clean early FZR 1000, a serious liter bike that put the fear of God into many of us back then. Still a good looking bike by today’s standards and with 145 ponies, the FZR1000 will continue to offer plenty of thrills.
Here’s what the seller has to say-
This bike is one of the nicest FZR’s around. I’m the second owner. Never been down. All original except for aftermarket brake hoses. New fork seals. 28,400kms. A must see for any FZR enthusiast. Will include 2 Joe Rocket helmets and 2 piece Joe Rocket leathers. Only reason for selling is I’m buyng a Harley. This bike is very clean and I took close ups of the few flaws.There are one chip almost at the identical spot on each side of the rear side fairings, the scratches on the tank area is a sticker and can be replaced easy, there is one crack from shipping when I bought the bike in the upper fairing. Bike runs great! I have owned it for 2 years and have put less than 3000kms on it. I bought it off the original owner. Bike is a Canadian bike and was purchased in Quebec. May be able to deliver within reason.
And the photos-
The seller highlights some minor cosmetic issues with the bike in the photos. The bike appears to be all stock except for the mentioned brake lines. Mileage seems fairly reasonable for the age. If it has been well maintained, then you should get many more miles of riding out of this beauty. All in all a pretty solid example. And the red, white and blue paint is a classic for the FZR.
So here’s another opportunity for all the FZR lovers out there. If that means you, then make the jump!
