This is a one-owner TL1000R with less than 1,500 original miles!
Bike: 1998 Suzuki TL1000R
Location: South Plainfield, New Jersey
This is only the second TL1000R we’ve featured–not counting Bimota’s–and it seems to be another good find! The seller states that they purchased this bike in June of 1998 and it has less than 1,500 miles because of college and moving. They don’t mention much other than that the bike is free of modifications which the pictures seem to agree with.
Having TL experience I can say these are quite nice bikes on the road. On the track they may not keep up with the RC’s and Duc’s but, on the street they are more than adequate. The bike pulls strong from idle and all the way up to just before red-line. They are very nice in the city because of the torque and the radiator positioning doesn’t cook you in the summer. The opening bid for this bike is $3,700 with no reserve, I think you’ll find that is right about where TL1000R’s with 10-20k miles are on Craigslist, making this bike a bargain if it doesn’t go up too much! If you’re a Suzuki collector, why not pick up a low mile, first year, TLR for the collection? See the other TLR we featured here. See this bike on eBay .
