Fast Fizzer – 1987 Yamaha FZR1000

1987_FZR1000_leftside

One of the “new classics” that is beginning to appreciate in value, the FZR-1000 can still hold it’s own. The FZR-1000 made over 145hp and was significantly lighter than the ZX-11s and GSXR-1100s of it’s era. Top speed was around 165mph which is still plenty fast, even today. Because the obnoxious color fads of the 1990s hadn’t started yet, these early Yamahas are adorned with subdued but classy color schemes and this particular example looks great in it’s classic red, white and blue.  Just two years later, Cycle World would go on to call the FZR-1000 it’s “Bike of the Decade.”

As you can see, despite being almost 30 years old, this one is very clean and appears to be bone stock, other than the tires (obviously).  The stock exhaust, turn signals, reflectors and even the chain guard are all there.  The indicated 16,000 miles means well under 1000 miles a year, which is just enough exercise to keep her in good running condition.

  • This shows the difference in price for a really nice one and a “rider” Later year I tried to sell my “rider” (identical down to the stock pipe, graphics and airbox) and could not even get a couple of grand for it (I even listed it here) so now it sits in the garage with a cover over it. The seller is doing well. I wish him luck

  • I’ve got one of these with under 10k miles. I bought it from the original owner. The thing I don’t understand with some of these bikes with over 10k miles is how is the paint so perfect unless it has been repainted and the seller is not telling us that. I have several bikes under 10k miles and each one has a couple of blemishes here and there. This one just looks to perfect to be original paint.
