Ein Sammler Traum: 0 Mile 1989 Yamaha FZR750R OWO1

Ein Sammler Traum: 0 Mile 1998 Yamaha FZR750R OWO1

Google Translation don’t fail me now, this truly is a collectors dream. I really don’t have too much to say here. If you collect Yamaha’s here is your opportunity to own a piece of Yamaha race history that looks just as good as it did rolling off of the production line. You just might need to speak a little German to get the deal done.

Enjoy some more pictures:

Here is the story from Deutschland:

Dear Yamaha owners and fans,

we have a very special offer for you today. You get the opportunity to purchase a mega-rare legendary Yamaha OW01 Sportsbike. The exciting thing is that the bike is absolutely NEW, it has never run, it has no mileage, it is right out of the box.

We got the bike from a crazy OW01 collector who had two bikes for street and this one for keeping new as a collectors piece.

The bike has never been registrated, the document papers are blank!

Unfortunately we did not get the also new owners manual, the pre-owner couldn’t find it anymore.

We are official Honda dealer in northern Germany for 30 years now, we want you to know that we are absolutely serious, please have a look at www.wellbrock.com for further details.

We are able to organize worldwide shipping of the bike, please ask for shipping costs.

Please have a look at the pictures we took of the bike. The pictures show exactly the bike that we are about to sell.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.

Regards,

Team Wellbrock & Co.

Brakes have come a long way since 1998. The dealership in Germany is asking $29,000 for the privilege. Here is a little sample of OWO1 asking prices from around the globe in the last few months:

Australia- A rather used example- $13,000 Australian

USA- Nice example with 12,000 miles- $17,500

UK- Another clean bike with low miles- $14,000

Over priced or perfect price it might be a long time before you see one with no mileage again.

Call the shipping company, check in with your favorite customs agent and then click here.

1989 Yamaha FZR750R OW01 In The United Kingdom

A gorgeous looking OW01 with less than 3k miles!

Bike:  1989 Yamaha FZR750R

Miles:  2,950

Price:  £15,000 (GBP)

Location:  Somewhere in the UK.

This seller has a few bikes for sale, and this one is the best looking!  The seller states that this OW01 is an original UK bike and has been stored in a climate controlled environment since new.  Other than mentioning that this bike is in fantastic condition, the seller also states that this bike comes with:

…ALL THE ORIGINAL PAPERWORK FOR THE BIKE, OWNERS MANUAL, SALES BROCHURE, SERVICE BOOK,  TOOL KIT, ORIGINAL TYRES AND ORIGINAL SPARE KEYS.

The seller is very correct in stating that the FZRR’s seem to be the rarest of the WSB homologation bikes and I fully agree, this bike is a finely tweaked racing machine that sill looks very similar to the FZR1000 that was available at the same time.  However, I believe the saying is everything that is rare isn’t valuable and, unfortunately, the FZR750R isn’t up to RC30 levels yet.  That being said, you’re going to have to be pretty keen on the OW01 to justify the asking price of £15,000.00  ($24,229.30 USD as of this writing).  The seller is feeling no guilt in the last thrashes of the recession–hopefully–as he is asking OW02 money for an OW01.  But, if you’re so inclined, I invite you to see if you can talk the seller, down, down to a reasonable level via the eBay link .

1989 Yamaha FZR750R OW01 In Mexico

This is a real FZR750R OW01 available in Mexico!

Bike:  1989 Yamaha FZR750R

Location:  Mexico City, Mexico

Mileage:  5,148km

The listing has really no information other than that the bike only comes with the Japanese title, doesn’t have a 17 digit VIN, cosmetically it has some small nicks and there is a video that shows the tach works.  The photos do show that the fairings are pretty rough (For a collector OW01) and there appears to be some surface corrosion.

On from that, I’ll refresh your memory on the OW01.  The FZR750R was created to compete against the RC30 in World SuperBike racing.  The OW01 shares very little with the standard FZR750 and a little more in common with the FZR1000.  The short stroke motor breathes through four 38mm flat-side Mikuni’s, five valves, hand finished porting, lightweight pistons, titanium connecting rods mated to a close ratio transmission.  This results in 108RWHP at 12,500RPM.

The OW01 also features an aluminum Deltabox frame and swingarm with fully adjustable Ohlins units front & rear with Nissin four-pot calipers mated to 320mm discs in the front.

This bike is a result of Yamaha’s need to get a competitive bike Homologated for World SuperBike;  Yamaha only needed to produce 500 example for Homologation making the OW01 very scarce then, as well as now.

If you want a bike that an RC30 owner will cross the street for, a FZR750R should do it.  The trouble with this bike will be importing it.  If you’d like to bring this into the U.S. it will probably be difficult or nigh-impossible.  The easiest way would be to bring it in as a race bike but, it has to obviously be a race bike.  If you don’t know where to start, I would do some research or find an informed confidant and wait for the next one to pop up.  See the other OW01’s we’ve had here.  See this current bike on eBay .
