The MZ Skorpion was the result of an international partnership between a British design firm, an East German manufacturer (MZ), and Yamaha. Weighing just 380 pounds and packing 48 horsepower, this is a rare sportbike that has become quite the cult classic.
The Skorpion utilizes the engine and electrical systems from a Yamaha XT660, and the brakes/suspension from Italian firm Grimeca. They were well equipped from the factory, including adjustable clip-ons and rear sets. MZ took it one step further with the MZ Skorpion Sport Cup, which was a Sport model but stripped of even more weight. The Cup got a full fairing and single seat, and was designed with the intent of enabling one-make clubman racing (which did happen in certain countries around 2000).
This specific MZ Skorpion Sport Cup (VIN: SNZ6SES2417506529) has 3,792 miles and is ready to go thanks to a recent service with new fluids and brakes and a new set of Michelin Pilot tires. The seller includes the solo seat and the rear passenger seat, and you’ll get an extra M4 stainless slipon that’s not on the bike at the moment.
