Back in the 1970’s, Honda, Yamaha, Suzuki and Kawasaki embarked on a horsepower war. This battle pushed the boundaries of high-performance motorcycles to a level never witnessed before and was the forerunner of todays ‘Superbikes’. The Yamaha XS1100 was one of these trail blazing motorcycles.
What set the Yamaha XS1100 apart from its rivals was not only its very impressive stats, 95 hp, 274 kgs, shaft drive and a top speed of over 130 mph, but it had a riding position that allowed the rider to spend many hours in the saddle without feeling like a cripple afterwards with its comfortable king and queen style seat and upright riding position.
This example has only travelled twelve and a half thousand miles since new and has been stored under cover in a garage and ridden only occasionally. Its condition can only be described as remarkable for its age.
These classic bikes are more valuable when they are in original condition as opposed to restored. This Yamaha is very original indeed. And, it runs like a new bike.
We have just given it a thorough check over and service and its ready for a new owner. Always wanted to own a Japanese classic but couldn’t find one good enough??? Then look no further than this Yamaha XS1100 Limited Edition.
