Replica 2008 Suzuki GSX-R250

So, it has been brought to our attention that this isn't a 2008 GSx-R, or even a Suzuki.  It is actually a UM V2s.  I should have confirmed the model first, turns out that there hasn't been a GSX-R250 since 1991.  This is a replica GSX-R if the seller knows it or not.  Thanks for bringing this to our attention Dave.

Located in Fayetteville, North Carolina is a very rare (For the US) 2008 Suzuki GSX-R250.  This GSX-R is assumed to be titled and registered as it has covered 2,700 miles and the dealer makes no mention of title issues.  Recently on eBay there was a dealer selling brand new Honda CBR125R models, combined with this, makes me curious how dealers are getting these in.  If you'd like a very rare, and new, 250cc bike; See the eBay ad here.

1985 Suzuki RG125 Gamma

Located in Mendham, New Jersey is a 1985 Suzuki RG125 with 2,060Km or 1,280Mi. This is the first year for the RG125 and shows some slight damage due to shipping (Crack in faring by blinker, crack in instrument cluster, and missing mirror glass).  These RG125s only weigh in at 209lbs.  Unfortunately, this bike isn't titled or registered. This is a no reserve auction with the bike currently (6/30) at $102.61. If you'd like a RG125 still on original tires, See the eBay ad here.

EDIT:  This bike sold for $1,675 on 07/06/09 with 31 bids.

1985 Yamaha RZ350

Located in Capitola, California is a Kenny Roberts replica 1985 Yamaha RZ350.  The RD/RZ350 line isn't that hard to locate, nor is the Kenny Roberts edition, but what makes this example special is it's claimed to be completely original and caries only 6,900 miles.  Seller claims stock air box, pipes, emissions equipment, both keys and a clean title.  The asking price of $5,500 reflects the condition.  If you're looking for a special, original, RD/RZ make sure to check out this example.  See the Craigslist ad here.

(1980) Kreidler Van Veen

Available in Tokyo, Japan is a Kreidler Van Veen, believed to be a 1980 model.  The earlier Kreidler 50cc racers are very sexy and although this one has a later body style, it is still quite cool looking.  The 50cc class used to be a major GP class because of it's affordability and racing based on racer skill over power.  Kreidler was a major part of the 50cc gp class from the beginning until their importer Van Veen, took over carrying the marque until 1982.  I would expect this bike to be quite easy to import as a track only bike and the seller claims to have a container coming from Japan to Long Beach in the near future.  This Kreidler should be welcomed with open arms to any vintage motorcycle event.  See a website of the 50cc GP history here.  See the eBay ad for this gorgeous bike here.

EDIT: This bike failed to sell on 07/05/09 with a starting bid of $12,000.

According to this NSR250 historical site, the MC28 has the following updates:

On November 11, 1993 the all new MC28 model NSR went on sale in Japan as a 1994 model. It was completely different than previous models and changed peoples thinking about two stroke technology. The new Proarm NSR's as they became known in Japan were the ultimate 250 bike for the street. They had PGM IV technology which allowed more accurate1994 NSR 250 R - 57K for more control of the carbs, smooth operation and perfect driving manners unlike past two stroke bikes. The all new Memory card replaced the standard key and made de-restricting the bikes very difficult. The 1994 lineup saw three types of NSR's for sale once again. There was the standard 250R type model in fighting red and Ross white. They were sold with a regular wet type clutch and non adjustable suspension. They were priced at 680,000 Yen.

A very significant bike, with a title, and in the PNW! I may have to consider selling my 93 Ducati 750SS if these super rare and available bikes keep popping up!
