“Only 4400 miles since new on this beautiful machine. Bike is in perfect condition. Spark plugs, oil, filters new battery. Original Yamaha panniers with original brackets never installed. Ask me any question.Comes with service manual. If you always wanted a clean low mileage GTS this is the one!”
The GTS wasn't designed to be the last word in handling, though, it was designed to be "technologically superior...the most sophisticated road-going Yamaha motorcycle ever produced." In the same way that Honda produced the oval-piston NR750 to prove how clever it is, Yamaha has produced the GTS to prove that it can build the ultimate high-tech sport-tourer. And they've really packed it in: single-sided front swingarm, Omega chassis, electronic fuel injection, three-way catalytic converter, anti-lock brakes, six-piston front-brake caliper.Heart of the GTS is modified FZR1000 motor, dohc, 20-valve, liquid-cooled inline-Four displacing 1002cc from bore and stroke of 75.5 58mm. The FZR motor has been altered to produce more low-down and midrange power primarily by fitting softer cams, lowering the compression ratio and equipping the bike with electronic fuel-injection. The benefits of EFI are many fold, but the primary ones are more efficient engine management, improved fuel consumption, adaptability to wide range of atmospheric conditions and improved throttle response. It even eliminates the need for choke and is self-diagnostic.
