Big liter bikes like this FZR1000 were a big deal back in ’92. Sportbikes were still kind of in their infancy in the early 90’s. For instance, 1992 was the first year of the GSX-R 600. The 1000 ruled all and the FZR1000 was a big part of that scene on the track and the street. These bikes aren’t what today’s 1000’s are, but they are still no slouches. This machine put out around 145 BHP, plenty to make the horizon come up on you quick.
Here’s what the seller has to say-
You are bidding on a really low mileage Yamaha FZR1000 Exup
I have owned the bike for 5 years and have put about 200 miles per year on it regularly cleaned and kept under cover in heated garage used only as an adrenaline rush toy
brand new battery this year, good tires
comes with original factory tailpipe. and rare matching single seat cover
this bike is so fast its like a video game!
unbelievable handling and huge stopping power
everything works as it should
comes with owners manual and factory tool kit
the only negative is a crack in the fairing where the previous owner dropped it off the side stand
please check out the photos and ask any questions before buying
This bike looks to be in great shape and the mileage is relatively low. It was apparently dropped at some point and has a crack in the fairing near the turn signal. The seller highlights that and includes a good photo. This could be an issue if you want a minty bike. It may be repairable or you could always look for a replacement fairing, although either may not be easy. The bike comes with the original exhaust and cool solo seat cover. Bonuses for sure.
The seller is asking $5k for this ride, which may be a little on the high side, but certainly not outrageous. These are not easy to find in any condition, so if you can give it a good home, make the jump!
