It seems as though spring has brought out the big dogs in the form of another very clean Yamaha FZR-1000 for sale on eBay. This one is sporting a more subdued color scheme compared with some earlier listings and looks great. Even though it’s a bit long in the tooth, the big Fizzer is no slouch on the road. Yamaha claimed 145hp and it’s dry weight of 460lbs was lighter than both the ZX-11 and GSXR-1100. While both of those bikes were a bit more focused on straightline speed, the FZR-1000 was more focused in the corners while still being able to keep up on the highway. This one appears mostly stock, with the exception of a slip on Yoshimura exhaust, a new battery and fresh tires. The $2500 “Buy It Now” price seems very reasonable for this classic liter bike and I suspect somebody will be clicking their mouse pretty quickly on it.
