Las Vegas, NV – 18,025mi – $2,700 No Reserve
It’s always nice to see an older, and well cared for, FZR1000 pop up for sale. It just means that clean examples are not extinct and still around for those love to look at them and ride them. These are some damn good looking bikes. Anyone that knows and loves the older FZR1000’s know that this is the model to have. Yamaha had redesigned their liter bike, bumping displacement to 1002cc and horsepower up to 145. Now present was the EXUP system which further enhanced the bikes power delivery.
This bike comes to us again from a collector in Vegas who looks to be parting with a few bikes, including this GSX-R Limited. Though this bike isn’t as rare as that Limited, it is still killer and a whole lot cheaper! It looks to be in well maintained condition and cared for as a collector piece.

We do see these pop up from time to time, and for good reason! They are awesome bikes that feature good looks and an entry level bike to start a collection or enjoy some classic sport bike goodness. I would suspect this bike to go in the $4.5k-$5k range, but wouldn’t be all that shocked if it went for more. Bidding is only up to $2,700 with a little over a day left and the reserve non-existent. This one is going to a new home, will it be yours? Check out the auction here and do something about it.
