500 Miles – 1986 Yamaha SRX600

In Japan, Sport by AbhiLeave a Comment

The SRX600 is one of the defining examples of a cult classic in the US. It sold poorly and was canned after a year in America (though it was successful in the Japanese market), but the few people that bought them here really fell in love with them.

The last time I featured one of these, reader yrrah shared a great article by Dean Adams, in which he calls the SRX “one of the finest singles of all time.” He also says, “Somebody, someday, is going to realize that the Japanese as a people are infinitely much cooler than Americans when it comes to niche motorcycles.” It’s a great read.

This example has just 500 miles and it’s claimed to be in very nice condition. Will it go into a collection or get some time on the road? Find this SRX for sale here on Craigslist for $4,100 in Denver, Colorado.
