1991 Honda NSR 125
Location: Pittsfield, MA
Mileage: 382km or 236 miles
Price: $1,500 starting bid with reserve
Here we have a rare little machine with super low mileage. Weighing in at a scant 266#'s, sporting a 6 speed transmission and cranking out a stellar 30hp at the crank this one should prove to be a perfect city bike or pit bike.
The best I can tell this bike is supposed to have a full fairing, but in many of the online pictures and video's there are many without fairings. In all of the publication photos these are shown with fairings which is why I assume they were sold with and not without. If any of our viewers can set me straight please do so.
One of the coolest things about this little NSR? It's electric start! Woo Hoo! Most of our beloved 2 strokes are kick start only and isn't really a problem, but in this day and age without a push button, people can only look and scratch their collective heads.
I had the pleasure of inspecting a NSR 125 up close and personal a few months back and I came away pretty impressed. I'd like to hear this one start and run from a dead cold start before plunking my hard earned cash down. The reason being, as any seasoned 2 stroker will tell you, is that crank seals become a little dodgy with time and not being ran. If a low mileage stroker is hard to start it usually means the crank bearings need replaced. But, if you're able to inspect this and she cranks, idles and runs fine I'd say it'd be a great little rare bike to own because there can't be too many in the states.
Here's a fun little video of some crazy teens having a good time at the NSR's expense.
