Today on the auction site we’ve got the predecessor of the R1 – a FZR1000 that’s one bid away from meeting reserve!
By 1992, the big Fizzer had just about reached its final form – and seeing as 1989 version was named Bike of the Decade by Cycle World, it was a good final form, indeed. A year later, Honda would release the CBR900RR, and all other literbikes were almost instantly rendered obsolete.
Still, the EXUP valve technology yielded 145 horsepower, meaning no one could call this bike slow. This example (VIN: JYA3LKE08NA018929) looks great in red/white/black and it’s equipped with a Zero Gravity exhaust and Yoshimura exhaust. It has just 16k miles and only needs tires plus a rider to put on more mileage!
