Rare classic Yamaha XZ550 V-Twin


1983 ‘A’ reg. 15717km. A great opportunity to own a very rare Yamaha. This a beautiful example in standard trim. I believe it has been stood in a museum in Germany for the last 10-12 years. Now fully re-commissioned and taxed and tested until December. Runs great, sounds great and rides great! The only downside I can think of is that the standard silencers have rotted from the inside due to lack of use. The bike comes with a new 2 into 2 system in Black. Otherwise ready to ride away. You won’t see many of these at classic bike meets!

The XZ550 was never a popular model due to early ones having a reputation for water leaks and poor carburation. This later model had these problems sorted but by that time the much cheaper Honda CX500 had taken the market for middle weight tourers.

Anyway take a look at the picture and I’m sure you will agree that the XZ is a much prettier bike.

These bikes can only appreciate in value in the coming years.

PX considered.

Summers Nearly Here, Buy now you will not be disappointed!
