Grubby but Great: 1992 Yamaha TZR250

From our buddies at Deftone Cycles comes this 1992 Yamaha TZR250 Racing Sport, the dry clutch version of Yamaha’s entry into the early ’90s quarter-liter two stroke wars. This TZR presents a unique conundrum, as it reportedly runs like a top, but has cosmetically had it. Do you restore it? It certainly is rare enough to warrant the work. Do you ride it? That route would definitely provide the most instant gratification.

If you do decide to ride it, you’ll be on a sweet-handling variant of the two-stroke sportbike class, but power could leave you wanting. TZRs were restricted to 44 horsepower in the home market, and it apparently can take some doing to bring them to full chat. That said, Cycleworld recently gave the TZR high praise for its power delivery.

From the eBay listing:

Yamaha TZR250RS 3XV Racing Sport. Dry Clutch Model. NO RESERVE 9,734 Miles (15,666 Kilometers) Completely original and unrestored. Mechanically Sorted. Cosmetically Challenged. All fluids are fresh. Shifts and revs to redline perfectly. Starts effortlessly every time. Very Honest Bike. Things to note: This vehicle is for one who wants a restoration project or just wants to ride without a care. Please see Images. Fuel tank is Rust Free. Factory red wheels are showing their age. Both lower fairings have broken by the lower V and have touchup paint. Bike has Vin Matching State of Ohio Title. 3XV0886** “Buyer is responsible for their own State Requirements.” Imported into the States through all legal channels. Sold as is. Buyer responsible for shipping. Thanks for looking. Please email any questions.

Broken fairings notwithstanding, this TZR is firmly in new supersport price territory, par for the course for two-stroke imports. For the right buyer this will make a great summertime mount.

  • I have always wanted one like this. But at 6’4” not sure it would work. I would only use it for occasional back road blasts if any other tall people have ridden one and have feedback.

  • Bidding really picked up in the last few minutes before close, going from $5,300 to a final sale of $6,825. Congratulations to buyer and seller!
