Lot Details
1987 Yamaha FZR1000 Genesis
Frame no. 2GH-001950
Engine no. 3GN-0106783
Dating from an era when one-litre sports bikes could afford to be relatively roomy and comfortable, Yamaha's FZR1000 Genesis arrived in 1987 as the class leader, boasting the FZ750's pioneering five-valves-per-cylinder engine technology and a race-developed Deltabox aluminium twin-spar frame. With a claimed maximum output of 125bhp, the Genesis was good for a top speed of over 150mph and, equally importantly, had handling and brakes to match. It lasted for only two years before being replaced by the extensively redesigned 'EXUP' model and these days is relatively rare. An affordable, fast and comfortable modern classic, this Genesis is described by the vendor as in generally very good condition and offered with Netherlands registration papers. It should be noted that the engine is not original to the frame.
