Yamaha Other description
Up for sale is a really clean 1992 Yamaha GTS1000. She is almost totally stock, with the only modifications being a Corbin seat and a MRA Touring windscreen. This example has just over 37k miles, and is very clean. Everything works, and runs like a top.
At the heart of this bike, you have the 1000cc Genesis 20 valve motor from the FZR. Retuned for 100 horsepower and 78 ft. lbs. of torque, this thing pulls like a freight train from about 2k rpm, and cruises at freeway speeds at around 5k rpm.
To complete the package, the bike also has fuel injection, anti-lock brakes front and back, and a catalytic converter. The full fairing and the MRA windscreen help keep the rider out of the wind during those long rides.
These bikes were an evolution in front suspension design. This forkless design is very similar to that on the Bimota Tesi series.
The title is clean, up to date, and in my name. The front tire needs to be changed. Please ask any additional questions before bidding.

Cyril Despres won his fifth career Dakar Rally while helping KTM win for the 12th consecutive time, in taking the motorcycle class in the 2013 edition of the famed off-road race. KTM was again the dominant manufacturer with the top five finishers in the motorcycle class riding motorcycles from the Austrian manufacturer. Despres finished with an overall time of 43:24:22 for the win, including a 15-minute penalty for swapping an engine after the one he was using in his KTM 450 Rallye failed.Fri, 01 Nov 2013
Motorcycle and scooter sales in the U.S. in 2013 remain consistent with last year’s figures, according to data released by the Motorcycle Industry Council. Several manufacturers blamed poor weather for the poor start this year, and the rebounding sales in the third quarter helped to negate the slow sales from earlier in the year.Thu, 02 May 2013
The economic downturn hit the motorcycle world particularly hard, as many factory-backed road racing efforts closed shop. The decision, while unfortunate, isn’t hard to understand, as racing at the highest levels isn’t cheap, and a factory involvement means added pressure to succeed, which ultimately means spending more money to do so. Through it all, however, Yamaha has remained involved with the sport, fielding factory teams and sponsoring various riding schools and even racetracks.
