Old School 250: 1987 Yamaha SRX250 For Sale

Location: Greenville, NY

Miles: 2,139

Price: $2,498 ($3,000 BIN)

The SRX250 wasn’t a bike that made everyone one stand up and take notice when it arrived on the scene. In fact, we only saw it here for one model year in 1987. All that aside, I still think these are cool little bikes that can offer up some serious fun in the twisties or just ripping around town with it only weighing 270lbs.

There isn’t much to gripe about with this particular SRX. It has very low miles for its age. It hasn’t been dropped or downed. There are no ‘stories’ and the only imperfection with it is a small crack on the underside of the chin fairing.

From the seller

1987 Yamaha SRX 250. With the exception of a new battery,
this SRX 250 is ALL ORIGINAL! Truly, “One-of-a- Kind!” It always turns heads
and attracts attention. I am the second owner. Those familiar with the SRX 250
know this motorcycle was only offered in the USA once, in 1987. Extremely rare.
Extremely collectable. The uniqueness of the SRX 250 is its single cylinder,
double overhead cam, dual header, dual carburetor, 6 speed engine. The bike was registered from 1987 to 1995, then stored until I purchased it and registered
it. Highlights: original tool kit, all rubber original including Dunlop tires,
original body work, 2193 original miles. No damage, no dents, no scraped paint.
The only item not perfect is the underside of the chin fairing which had a
crack and was not perfectly repaired. I have tried to show this in the photos.
It has a Clear Title and is currently licensed and inspected. Starts easily,
runs flawlessly. Although, it is a little cold blooded until completely warmed
up. A real pleasure to ride. Weighs only 273 pounds. Also included: Yamaha
SRX250 Factory Service Manual, Original October, 1987 RIDER Magazine with the cover story article on the SRX, YSR50 and FZR1000, and a copy of the 1987 CYCLE Magazine SRX 250 Road Test. In 2012 this bike can be registered as historical using the “Liberty Plate” in NYS.

If you’re a big fan of the SRX250 or have been in the market for one, then give this one a serious look. We have seen a handful of these on the site over the last few months, and this one looks to be the cleanest and low-mileage one so far. The BIN price of $3,000 is definitely on the upper range if not a little above where I have seen these go for before. But, for a bike that didn’t sell big and was only produced for one model year, I can’t imagine finding more of these in this condition. If you think this bike would look better in your possession, then take a look at the auction here and place your bid!

Lightweight Fun: 1987 Yamaha SRX250 For Sale

Location: Glendale, AZ

Miles: 8,563

Price: $1,425 BIN

Sure we all love high-strung homologated specials and superbikes with big horse power. But riding these bikes in the real world can be a bit unrealistic and cause you to cramp into a pretzel fairly quickly. May I present an alternative: The Yamaha SRX250. These bikes have a moderate 32hp from a single cylinder 250cc engine, but weighs in at a mere 270lbs. Big power and stiff suspensions don’t necessarily mean fun to ride.

The SRX250 up for auction here sure looks to be in good condition. Only a few small paint chips here and there and a slightly scrapped muffler appear to be the only outstanding imperfections. With only 8,563 miles, this bike seems to be well maintained and looked after.

From the seller:

“1987 YAMAHA SRX250

8563 miles. Very nice condition.

Tires are excellent, no cracking. Engine starts easily &
runs perfect.

Seat has no rips. A few small chips in paint. Side of
muffler is scraped. (see photo’s)

Clear AZ title.”

If you’re looking for a cheap alternative to any of the new 250’s, and want something a little more unique, then take this bike into consideration. You won’t see many of these rolling around as they were only sold in the U.S. for one model year. If this bike seems like a good way to rip around town or race in your own neighborhood GP, then take a look at the auction here and score this clean SRX250!

32hp of summertime fun

1987 Yamaha SRX 250

Location: Indianapolis, IN
Mileage: 3,975
Price: A scant $1,199.00

Looking to stay kewl this summer? What better way than to sport a bikini on a single cylinder Yamaha SRX250?

This thing looks like a ton of fun sporting 32hp and lipstick red rims. I know you’re thinking “32hp doesn’t equal fun”, but when you consider Honda’s highly anticipated CBR 250 (Blek!- it should have been called CB 250) has 25 ponies and will make your wallet lighter by 27 Ben Franklins this is killer!

Like most small bore cycles in the states the SRX suffered in sales and was laid to rest as fast as they could use up the pre-ordered parts. You can count on one hand how many single cylinder street bikes we have here in the states and I can tell you that nothing sounds like a Thumper. I know, it’s almost an oxymoron to say 250cc and Thumper in the same breath, but single cylinder street bikes are just cool- well… sans the CBR250.

There are plenty more pictures to be seen on ebay and this is a classified ad so you can have it today!
