Smoke’em if ya got’em!
I swear to you- every time I see a new 2 stroke up for sale I shake my piggy bank to see if more money has magically appeared. As usual, it just laughs at me and says “NOT TODAY!”
From the seller
SERIOUS COLLECTORS ONLY PLEASE.
SOLD ON BILL OF SALE, GREY-MARKET IMPORT.
CONCOURSE-LEVEL CONDITION IDEAL FOR A COLLECTOR. MECHANICALLY PERFECT, STARTS ON FIRST KICK.
Honestly- Tell me when the last time you rode or wanted to ride 280#’s of 30 year old sexiness that smoked and made a bunch of noise when you opened it up?
JDM only Yamaha TZR 250 3XV’s:
-A scant 280ish pounds
-Upside Down Forks
Yes sir- Pure 2-Stroke Sport goodness right there! Now, I know you’re not going to stomp anyone a new mud hole drag racing, but you’d sure give them a run for their money in the twisties . . . that is, if you dared to ride this one. Parts for these are impossible to find and since this one looks to be in perfect condition I’m guessing I’d have a hard time taking it out of the garage. I’d probably just sit on it and make the BRAAAPPPPP sounds as I pretend to shift gears using the Yamaha name as the gears. Yammmmm (1st), Maaaaa (2nd), Haaaaa (3rd) BRAPPPPP!
$15,995 is steeeeep, but where else are ya gonna find one? I know where, but it’s not available yet – Our friends over at Iconic have one on deck- Yamaha TZR250 3XV, but it has A LOT more miles on it.
One thing I did notice worth mentioning is the sellers 66.7% eBay rating. I find that odd because most folks who sell these types of machines protect their ratings at all costs. With that said, if this one strikes your fancy make sure you do your DD and ask plenty of questions.
Did anyone else notice the tank sticker says “3MA” and the windscreen says “3XM”? Tim, can you offer any insight on this?
Damn, this one is nice!
