Gary's 1996 Honda NSR250SP is our first ever featured listing. I'm especially proud to feature this particular bike as it is one of our favorite models on Rare Sport Bikes For Sale. And it is very special indeed with very low miles and no stories.
Here is Gary's description of his 96 NSR250 SP MC28 which is listed with an asking of $12k in Los Angeles:
This is a real and very rare (especially the miles) 1996 Honda Repsol NSR 250 SP #143 of 1000 made, the lowest number and last year of the SP. It took me years to find this one and I have never seen another Repsol with this low mileage. About less that 100 made it to the USA, most stayed in Japan or were shipped to the UK because they are legal there. This one runs on the stock card. It does not have the de-restricted wire splice done so the miles are exact at 4,700 miles. Most other NSR listings that claim to have low miles are running the HRC card and miles are no longer accumulated, even though they brag "low miles", but you may have noticed they have had the top rebuild, new chain & sprocket...
This bike is in excellent condition. I don't ride it, it's just for show. Comes with a current Texas registration title 03/2010 and bike is located in Los Angeles. Had the very first tire change in April of 2007 and only has 600 miles on them. Also has the original chain & sprocket, and no top end rebuilds.
When people see this bike it looks brand new. It was the 2008 Woodley Park 2 stroke extravaganza winner for best Honda.
I'm asking $12,000 OBO comes with factory Honda stand, extra keys, and brand new (never programmed) HRC 030 Card.
Surely one of the finest NSR250's ever listed on this blog and a rare opportunity anywhere to pick up a very important and collectible motorcycle. Good luck with your sale Gary!
