Location: Chagrin Falls, Ohio
Mileage: 17,540km/10,898m
Price: $16,000

Straight out of a private collection is this amazing 1990 TZR 250 3MA. 1 of 500 produced solely for the JDM in it’s original state. No paint work, OEM body panels, original windscreen, original turn signals and ready to roll (see video below).

In 1990 Yamaha threw every available option at the TZR SP. It came from the factory with upside down forks, braced swing arm, the latest YPVS offering and a dry clutch. It is very close to the full on race version TZR 250W. If you’re not familiar with Yamaha’s reverse cylinder design- the carburetors face the front wheel and the exhaust exits on the rear of the cylinder which is why Yamaha designed a true under tail exit exhaust for the ultimate Racer Boy look!

The seller has gone above and beyond the call of duty to accurately describe their machine with hi-res photos. Please take your time- browse through them all and enjoy how well this 3MA has been preserved. I did some research today and poured over the archives where I could only find 1 other 1990 3MA ever listed on our site. So, based on our 14 year history- you are looking at a truly rare machine.

I hope you enjoyed that video as much as I did. There’s nothing quite like a 2 stroke buzzing down the road at 10k rpm and hearing the rattle of the dry clutch when slowing down- especially when you can do it without worry. That’s right, this TZR 250 is titled, tagged and completely legal under the 25 year old rule. This is a no hassle 2-stroke purchase.

Is this the one you’ve been waiting for? Will you ride it or put it on display?

Yamaha Exotica: 1995 Yamaha TZR250 SPR In CA

 Yamaha Exotica: 1995 Yamaha TZR250 SPR In CA

A rare bird indeed.  We’ve had more rare, VJ23  RGV250 SP’s grace RSBFS than these rarely seen Yamaha TZR’s.  This is as good as it gets unless you want a full race TZ250.  The SPR sports 36mm carbs, a dry clutch, fully adjustable suspension and a full power CDI to compliment the lights and turn signals.  What I’m not sure about is how many of these unplugged TZR SPR’s were made.  I’ve seen production numbers as low as 100 (seems to low to me) and as the seller here claims, 500 (quite possible).  They had to make enough to  at least  satisfy all the weekend warrior racers in the home market.  I will admit, info is scarce on these bikes.

From the ad:

I have a 1995 Tzr 250 SPR it is in great shape. I hate sell it but it’s time to let things go. It is a true spr 1 of 500.Serious inquires only comes with extra and Rair trick parts.Also availabe are other two strokes

After reading the ad I just have more questions.  Title?  What rare parts does it come with?  What other two strokes do you have available?  I’m sure any true Yamaha fan will be burning up the phone line to find out.  Depending on the mileage and the title status, the $9000 asking price isn’t out of line considering the rarity and model of the bike.  For comparisons sake, a V model RGV250SP  recently sold for almost $15,000.

An interesting look at one kitted up and half naked.  Me like kit parts!

It’s not the same model year but have a look at those pipes. Pure two stroke porn!
