Furious Flyweight: 1990 Honda CBR250RR

If this is not your first time on our site, you are by now familiar with our intense love of all things tiny and Japanese. You know the specs, you know the benefits of bikes that sacrifice all-out, underpants-ruining speed for balance and trick engineering. So I'll spare you. Instead, let's talk about the things beyond engineering that make these things so cool, the je ne sais quoi that surrounds these little jewels.

1990 Honda CBR250RR for sale on eBay

Let's start with the fact that Honda took the time to make the 1990 CBR250RR something other than a thumper-powered scooter with a fairing, proving that not everything needs to be about horsepower and top speed, especially not on the street. In this country, the smaller option is never a platform for cool technology; it's always the thrown-together, plastic and pot metal option for cheapskates, wussies or those who don't know any better.

Nobody here would ever have shelled out new-bike money for a 60-horsepower crotch rocket when for the same or only slightly more money you could get a full-bore, 600-plus-cc JATO booster with a license plate. But the rest of the world understands that you maybe don't need all that juice in a street bike. Maybe, just maybe, there would be fewer sausage creatures to shovel off the roadside if bikes didn't need to be going Mach Chicken to be enjoyable.

Thanks to their tiered licensing systems, tighter, twistier roadways and astronomical gas prices, the Japanese home market got these little wonders, which rev to 20k RPM, pack gear-driven cams and make up their 250ccs over four teeny pistons. They have well thought-out brakes, suspension and chassis tech and high-quality fit and finish. Someone cared about how they came out, which you don't get in a $4,500 late-model CBR250.

This 1990 Honda CBR250RR is in excellent shape, and comes from a seller whose store is packed with myriad NOS OEM and high-quality aftermarket parts for all manner of cool old Japanese machines. The bike has one small crack in the fairing, and the tank has been repainted to match the plastics. It has covered 9,200 miles and sports a period aftermarket exhaust.

From the eBay listing:

INTRODUCTION:::

You are bidding on a 1990 Honda cbr250rr. The Honda cbr250rr is a very interesting motorcycle mechanically. It has a very small inline four cylinder gear driven cam motor, which is capable of reving up to 20,000 rpm, the amazing sound this bike produces through the rpm range is very addicting and fun. The cbr250rr model was never available in the USA, this particular bike was legally imported from Japan, and now comes with a clear legal Washington State title. This cbr250rr only has 14,920 kilometers (9270miles). But please feel free to read more about the specifics of this bike and look at the pictures for verification. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. U.S. and International bidders are welcome to bid on this motorcycle but must arrange shipping themselves...

CONDITION:::

All of the body panels and tank are in great condition, the body panels are nice quality after market panes, and the tank was professionally painted to match the body work perfectly. The wheels are also in excellent condition with perfect paint and no major chips anywhere. Even the windscreen is original and in great condition. Basically the motorcycle is a 9 out of 10 cosmetically, with the exception of a small crack on the front fairing right by the mounting bolt which can be seen on one of the pictures but other than that the body work and paint is perfect. The bike also has a nice sounding aftermarket JMCA performance exhaust. Mechanically the bike runs and rides perfect. All of the electrical components work as they should; lights, blinkers, horn, speedo, tach, temp gauge, all work properly. The bike just had a full service tune up including new tires, carburetors cleaned and adjusted new chain; mechanically everything was inspected and replaced if necessary, all fluids were flushed.

CONCLUSION:::

This is a great opportunity to buy a rare Honda cbr250rr. International buyers please keep in mind that there are some small variations in original parts in different countries; this Honda cbr250rr is a Japan market original specifications edition. If you need any additional pictures or have any additional questions please feel free to email us. Domestic & International buyers are welcome to bid but have to arrange the shipping themselves; however we will be glad to help with any loading of the motorcycle. We have assisted in shipping motorcycles overseas for other customers in the past. Please feel free to bid as long as you make the shipping arrangements.

With plenty of time left in the auction, the bidding is still below the seller's reserve.

All the Fairing: Clean Tri-Color 1990 Honda CBR1000F

Honda's biggest CBR from the late '80s through the mid-'90s, the CBR1000F rather quickly got a reputation as a solid, if a bit boring, sport touring rig. Where its smaller stable mates made prodigious power in sprightly packages, the 600-pound 1000F was praised mostly for its long-distance ability and comfy riding position.

1990 Honda CBR1000F for sale on eBay

Though it gave up grunt to its competitors, it still pushed out more than 130 horses at the crank, and would shed a quarter mile in a hair over 11 seconds. Despite its weight and soft suspension, the big Honda did a surprisingly admirable job on twisty roads, as well. Those factors, and Honda's renowned bank-vault reliability, combined to give the Honda CBR1000F an insane decade-long shelf life with just minor changes along the way.

The 1990 CBR1000F you see here was built after the model's first refresh, which gave the bike slightly more power, slightly more weight and bigger tires to handle the increases. It is in excellent shape for its years, with just a few small scratches showing on the handsome red, white and blue fairings that cover almost the entire machine. This bike appears to come from the same Long Island, NY seller whose 1990 CBR600F we showcased last month.

From the eBay listing:

I've had this motorcycle about 7 years. I bought her with about 18,000 miles. Dealer maintained with new tires last year. The 998cc motor pulls strong at the low end with 110 HP and a top speed of 146 MPH. Pretty easy to get a speeding ticket as she's very comfortable at 95 MPH. Reliable, fast, nimble, comfortable, and draws a crowd. Fun in the twisties for a big bike.

I'd love to keep her but it's time to make room in the garage. I have 18 motorcycles.

The bike has some nicks and chips from driveway tipover and one at the local gas station...but overall in very good shape. Check out the photos and my EBAY rating. Low reserve and below book value. If you win it, you own it, and you won't be sorry.
Make sure you are aware of shipping costs before you bid. Nobody likes to come to LONG ISLAND

The seller clearly subscribes to the N+1 formula for bike ownership, as this one shares garage space with, ahem, 18 others. The auction has not yet met reserve with an already-active corps of bidders.

1 of 65 in the U.S.: 2007 MV Agusta F4 Senna 1000R

MV Agusta spat out a raft of tribute bikes based on its insane F4 1000R in the mid to late aughts, but perhaps the closest to the company's heart was the F4 1000R Senna, named for Ayrton Senna, the late three-time Formula 1 champion. Senna had been a close personal friend of Claudio Castiglioni, MV Agusta president and father of the Ducati 916 and Monster and the MV Agusta F4 and F3.

2007 MV Agusta F4 1000R Senna for  sale on eBay

The 2007 bike followed a 2002 Senna Edition F4, but was harder-edged than the previous version, and was blessed with a longer list of special suspension and go bits. Like the "standard" F4, the 2007 Senna made 174 horsepower at the crank, which was good for 0-60 in under three seconds, a high-nine-second quarter mile and a top speed within a gnat's eye of 190 mph.

Cosmetically, the bike sported the color-me-obvious grey and red paintwork bearing Senna's name, a contrasting red Alcantara seat and silver forged Marchesini wheels.

Mechanical changes include titanium nitride coating for the 50 mm Marzocchi USD fork, instead of the standard carbon nitride, the Sachs rear suspension is adjustable for high- and low-speed rebound and compression damping and braking is handled by Brembo Goldline monoblocs.

The F4 listed here is in excellent condition, as you would expect from an extremely rare and exclusive bike, and has clearly been stored inside. It has covered 4,700 miles since new, which is actually more than we would have guessed.

From the eBay listing:

The Senna is a special edition of the MV Agusta F4 1000R. With different paint, an alcantara seat, upgraded Brembo brakes, forged silver Marchesini wheels, a 50 mm titanium-nitride coated Marzocchi upside down fork, and a lightweight Sachs racing rear suspension this edition is truly special.

The 174 horsepower engine will help you get this one of 300 (only 65 brought to the US) bike moving.

Contact us with any questions. Financing and warranty available.

With three days left in the sale, the bike has not attracted any bids. Buy-It-Now is set at $25,000. Comments are open, so let us know your thoughts below.

No Replacement for Artificial Displacement: 1984 Kawasaki GPz750 Turbo

As the rest of the Big Four tried to grab turbo sportbike market share in the early to mid-80s by strapping fuel injection systems and snails to run-of-the-mill UJMs, Kawasaki took the game a little more seriously, and the results made the rest of the crowd look silly. The 1984 Kawasaki GPz750 Turbo was lighter, sharper, handled better and went faster than the others, an actual sportbike among a crowd of boosted pigs.

1984 Kawasaki GPz750 Turbo for sale on eBay

Building on the legend of the insane, and truly rare 1,000cc turbo 1978 Kawasaki Z1R/TC, and its AMA-conquering GPz line, Kawi tweaked an already solid formula into a complete street menace. The engines got new pistons, oil scavenge pumps, and a beefier gearbox to handle the boost.

The magazines went nuts, with at least one hailing the '84 GPz750 Turbo as the fastest streetbike they had ever tested. Capable of 148 mph on the big end and quarter-mile potential in the high 10-second range, the Turbo's numbers stood up to naturally-aspirated 1,000cc bikes for the next decade or so.

This particular GPz Turbo appears to be in fantastic shape, though the pictures are a little low-res. With the bike showing just 5,400 miles, the seller claims it looks more like it is three than 33. It carries new Bridgestone Battlax tires and braided steel Galfer brake lines in black to keep a stock appearance. On a bike this old, anything to keep it sticking and stopping is a welcome improvement. But just in case you do feel the need to take it back to 100 percent original and park it, the 1984 tires and brake lines are included.

From the eBay listing:

Up for sale is my Mint condition. One previous Original owner bike. This is the Cleanest, unmolested GPZ TURBO Ive seen in years. It looks like it is three years old. It looks almost new.
Pipes are immaculate, Paint is immaculate and shiny. Decals are like New. Paint is like New. Seat is like new. All instruments work. Mileage is supe LOW 5,417 .

Honest and Original: 1994 Yamaha YZF 750 R

Built in the days when World Superbike and AMA Superbike still controlled huge fanbases, and names like Duhamel, Russell, Stevens, Polen and Chandler lined American road racing grids, the 1994 Yamaha YZF750R sought to bring some of the sound and fury to the streets.

1994 Yamaha YZF750R for sale on eBay

The bad news for Yamaha, of course, was that they found little success in either championship when compared to their rivals, settling instead for a smattering of wins at the Suzuka 8-hour during the YZF's production run. The exception was 1991, when Thomas Stevens snagged the AMA championship aboard an OW-01.

This YZF isn't exactly low mileage, but it does not appear to have been abused, and has clean, original fairings, albeit with some scratches and cracking. It comes with one OEM replacement side panel, and is wearing new tires and brake pads after a recent service. With 120 or so horses in a 500-lb frame, the bike should acquit itself well even today.

From the listing:

Yamahas Street legal Full on Race bike of the era, Won World Super Bike Races and more.

Many said this made Yamaha's old OWO1's factory racers seem Slow and Heavy.

Bought from the original owner this bike is in Really Nice Original condition, 23500 miles and just serviced from being in in storage. Oil changed, New tires, EBC rotors and pads, Just dyno tuned by Fox Motor Sports, Grand Rapids, MI.

Bike Starts, Runs, Shifts and Clutches as it should. Fun to ride pulls good up to redline.

This bike has scratches, small dents, chips and cracks in the fiberglass panels, I have located one NOS left side panel (have not changed, the original is very nice, can see new one in the pictures.

Please review all pictures and ask any questions you may have, I have no intention of misleading anyone. See my feed back as a seller have sold other Motorcycles through the EBay System with 100% Feedback.

No Shipping available but will work with your shipper for pick up, will accept check's but all will clear bank before shipping.

$1000.00 PayPal deposit with in 24 hours of auction end, full payment with in 7 days.

There are just over three days left in the auction, and bidding is still south of $3,000. The championships may not have come easy for the YZF750, but it is still a beautiful machine, especially in this shape.

Granddaddy’s Repli-Racer: Clean 1986 Suzuki GSX-R 750

The values the first Suzuki GSX-Rs have begun their inevitable climb into the stratosphere, but it is still possible to pick one up for less-than-stupid money. They are rare and sought-after in any condition, so you cannot expect to pay Craigslist-bargain prices for them, but they're attainable.

1986 Suzuki GSX-R 750 for sale on eBay

And you want one. The boxy. tri-colored fairing could only have come from a specific era in an especially loony decade. Before the smoothed-over soapbar fairings of the Honda CBR Hurricane pushed slippery shapes into fashion, Suzuki cut and creased its way to the unique, slab-sided form-over-function fairings we see here.

The bodywork is odd and gawky, but purposeful, so it works. And if the looks don't get you, what's underneath the plastic is ready and willing to try. The bike is built around an alloy perimeter frame that straddles an air- and oil-cooled 750cc inline four.

For its time, the bike was a featherweight technological marvel, sporting anti-dive forks on a bike that barely pushed 400 pounds without fluids.

This is example shows very well, though it sports a few blemishes, and has a smattering of non-original paint. The seller notes a raft of recent maintenance, including a carb cleaning, a valve adjustment and new fork seals.

From the listing:

Original super clean 1986 GSXR750. 49 state bike with clear California title. 13,200 original miles. Cosmetically the bike is extremely clean All original fairings that have been professionally repaired (standard cracks around mirror mounts) and repainted (only the cowl, side panels and lower. The rest are original paint & condition) in factory colors. All original hardware. No dents in tank. A little bubbling of air under tank decal strips on side (see pic) No tears in seat. The engine cosmetically is extremely clean. All original and complete. Good tires. Carbs just rebuilt. Complete service and valve adjustment just done. New fork seals. Has manual adjustable cam chain tensioner. Comes with original one. Runs and rides great.

* Bike is for sale locally so I reserve the right to end auction early

The bike is at $3,500 with a single bid and five days left in the auction. Grab it before the prices soar!
