Clean…very clean FZR 1000 Exup (Switzerland)

In the early ’90, this was a serious Superbike: The Yamaha FZR 1000 Exup. While Suzuki increased its GSX-R capacity to 1100 a few years earlier, Yamaha opted to pimp up the FZ750 power plant to 1002 cc which with its 20 valves delivered a staggering 145 HP @ a very down to earth 10000 rpm (in comparison to modern bike). That meant loads and loads of usable power at your fingertips.

The sample above/below is:

1) in fantastic condition

2) in its best color scheme

3) at an even better price


With just 23000km form new, and 1 owner so far this is very promising. judge for yourself:

I personally have never driven one of these and often thought that the seating position seems a bit laid back, but with that powerhouse and the amazing for the time and still beautiful Deltabox Aluminum frame I really want to.

And an inspiring brochure from those times (note the rider’s position…comfortably seated and with the knee only out of the fairing):

…pure nostalgia….

The seller describes the bike like this:

Wunderschöne und sehr gepflegte FZR1000 aus erster Hand. Die Yamaha ist Vorführbereit, ev. ein Flüssigkeits Service nötig. Auch für Liebhaber geeignet. Pneus sehr gut. 
Sehr attraktives Angebot.

For the non-German speaking, he confirms the excellent conditions and mentions that the only work needed would eventually be the replacement of fluids (oil, brake fluids).

This beautiful FZR is available in Switzerland form a private seller at the auction site. Yours with 2650 CHF! ($2753 USD)



  • What a pig at 470 pounds dry,thats 30 pounds more than my 94 CBR900 is wet!

  • We all know that the CBR 900 RR ws a light weight revolution when it came out in 92 (see posts on first blade) but before that superbikes were heavier (for example the later generations water cooled GSX-R were much heavier than the oil cooledones…). In addition the FZR was intended for road where the CBR 900 originally started s a 750 project tht then became 900 to be on top of the market competition…
