The engine is mated to a six-speed gearbox spinning the rear 18-inch wheel via a chain final drive. Ultimately, this whole shebang allows the beast to cover the quarter-mile in 11.2 seconds as it accelerates to a healthy top speed of 149 mph (240 kph). Dual 320-mm (12.6-inch) brake rotors and twin-piston calipers bring the front hoop to a stop, accompanied by a single 267-mm (10.5-inch) disc and a two-piston caliper on the opposite end.
The FZR’s powertrain items are enveloped in an aluminum twin-spar frame that sits on 41-mm (1.6-inch) Kayaba forks up front and a premium monoshock at the rear. Without going into any other details, we can probably all agree that Yamaha’s warrior is no damn toy. Since we’re pretty sure that you love this creature as much as we do, we’ll be taking the liberty of introducing you to an immaculate variant you could actually own.
That’s right; the bike in question is going under the hammer at no reserve on Bring a Trailer. At this time, the current bid on the mechanical gem is $4,500, and you may submit yours until Sunday, June 13. However, this isn’t precisely your stock FZR, having received a selection of performance enhancements under current ownership.
Handling improvements are made possible by refurbished brake calipers, tweaked master cylinders, and a new rear disc, as well as reconditioned front and rear suspension goodies. On the other hand, the engine received a set of K&N air filters, fresh fuel lines, and a state-of-the-art Vance & Hines muffler for the exhaust, among other items. All things considered, this ‘87 MY FZR 750RT is definitely worth your attention.
