1990 Yamaha FZR1000
Frame no. JYA3LKE02LA007776
Engine no. 3LK 007776
Almost 30 years ago, Yamaha's FZR1000 was as good as it gets in big-bore sportbikes. Introduced in 1989, the second-generation FZR boasted variable exhaust tuning, a then-new feature called EXUP which usefully broadened the four-cylinder's powerband. The engine was also potent, 0-60mph coming in 2.9sec., on the way to a top speed of 164mph. So impressed was Cycle World with the overall machine that the magazine named the Yamaha "Bike of the Decade," noting it was "one of those rare motorcycles that made a better rider out of everyone who threw a leg over it."

As seen here, the 1990 version of the FZR was identical save for new graphics, so it should be no surprise that CW's opinion was little-changed. "One of the most remarkable sportbikes ever made. It handles with grace, has one of the most powerful yet civilized engines of all time, and is quite comfortable," gushed the editors. "Last year we were so impressed with the FZR that we said it was the cutting edge of sportbikes. It still is."

The vendor advises the motorcycle has been kept in a climate controlled environment and is to be running well.
