1997 Yamaha YZF750

Hey guys , I went riding after work tonight and ran across a guy on a 1997 Yamaha YZF750. That thing was in MINT condition and man it was SWEET. Keep in mind fellas, that I ride a 1992 Seca II, and not by choice , but by pocketbook at the time I purchased it. But things have changed over the past 3 years that I've rode it , and I finally get to upgrade next spring. Well , after seeing that bike tonight, I was really impressed with the styling and the look. I was just wanting to know if anyone here has any experience with one or knows how to look up the specs on that one.

YZF750's were consider the bomb when they were first released.
Unfortunately this period at the top of the 750 tree did not last long as shortly there after Suzuki released the new GSXR750WT [I think that was its model ] this was the first of the "new" beam framed GSXR's.
These immediatly blew away all the competetion.
However, if you can find a nice clean example [not the gastly pink and white model!] then I am sure your will enjoy the ride

Never a big fan of the nose.....seemed very blockish looking......but they were great bikes...but are super exspensive now(in terms of year vs. miles)for this model as they are usually highly sought after.

You will have o ask yourself what its really worth to you...........do you buy the "mint" and spent a bunch of cash? do you find a slighty beat up but still in good condition and still spend a bunch of cash? do you hunt doen the half wreck and try to repair? whats the cost of repair to you yourself? not just the parts but the actual fixing and building....the work looking up parts.....etc?

thats what I look at everytime I go and buy anything....quality,reputation,looks and my desire............in that order

Jimi, This bike is not the R7 as I think you are talking about.... It's a YZF 750......... This was the 750 before the R7 and R1 were born.

when I rolled up on that guy at the light I thought " Holy Shit , there's an R7 " but soon found out otherwise.

That bike wasn't for sale , but I did like it an awful lot and will keep any eye open for sure.

Yamaha also made an even rarer version, the YZF750 SP, if you can find one of those they are worth some bucks

Nothing wrong with 1992 Yamaha Seca-II's.



Personally, I'd stay away from bikes like the YZF750. The older the bike, the harder parts will be to find. Also, I'd think that if you're looking at something like that, look into an R6 or possibly a YZF-600r.

I'm sitting here wondering what we will be saying of the 2005 R1 or GSXR in 20 years?

Fast Forward to 2025 on motomummy.com

Situation #1
"I was coming out of the store the other day and saw a guy on one of those old school R1's. I think it was one of those LE models, back from the Rossi days. Very clean bike, but the styling was very blocky and totally ancient looking. I can't believe we used to think those were "top of the line" back then. Just goes to show you how times change...."

Situation #2
"I was at the bike museum the other day and saw one of those LE model Yamaha's. Remember how we thought those were cool when they came out? Man, what a blast to ride those must have been. I remember owning an R1 and then the big gas crisis of 2009 hit, and then all the restrictions made it too expensive to even buy gas or own a bike. Then the alternative fuel act of 2013 and eventually the outlawing of all internal combustion engines. What I wouldn't give to be able to ride a bike again, but at least the earth is cleaner now and my hydrogen car isn't that bad..."

Nice Kneedragger...lol

Although you need

Situation #3

Hey I saw one of those old school R1 LE's the other day. I wish we could still but unrestricted bikes here in the US, it sucks now that the fastest bike we can buy goes about 125 MPH....

It will happen, it's just a matter of time... either safety concerns or pollution and fuel issues....

Remember guy's we have it pretty good these days.
