Zero-mile, still crated Yamaha RZ500N for sale

Rarer than hen's teeth

PROVING that good news never grows old, this little gem of a bike has been doing the rounds on social media, with thousands of people sharing the news as if this jewel-like bike has just been found. Hate to break it to you, it hasn't, it was unearthed back in 2014. Here's the full story from when this news actually unfolded!

This brand new, unregistered, never-even-been-fired-up Yamaha RZ500N has been revealed in the warehouse of a motorcycle dealer in Australia.

We know it was the RD500LC but over in Australia (and Canada) it was called the RZ500N and their version came with an aluminium frame. It comes exactly as it arrived from Japan, with two keys, the service manual, mirrors etc.

The RD/RZ500 is a liquid-cooled V4 499cc two-stroke. Now there's a sentence to get the pulse racing.

It's up for $38,490 Aussie dollars, which is roughly £20,000. Considering the price some 'classics' (a lot of which are sheds) go for, that looks like a decent price.
