The Yamaha FZ1 is an under-appreciated bike. Introduced in 2001, it gave you the power of a modified R1 engine (145 hp) with all-day ergonomics. Low-end power suffered compared to the competition, but it was silly amounts of fun over 8,000 rpm.
According to the seller, this bike is “as brand new as possible, unrestored and 100% original, with 0 miles ridden. Neither gas nor oil have been added since being drained at the factory in Great Britain prior to its being shipped to North America 45 years ago.”
