1991 RGV250 VJ22 Titled on Ebay

1991 RGV250 VJ22 Titled on Ebay

Now we are talking, something without valves, something that eats a little of the ozone layer away with each ride.  This is a 1991 RGV250 even though the Ebay title says 1990.  Let me get you bidding right away: yes this bike is titled. Now you can take a breath and read on.  I like what the seller has done with the bike.  He has upgraded the power-valves for you, which had a problem of grenading on the early RGV's, it's got a nice set of Tyga rear sets and a nice set of Tyga pipes.  He also resisted the urge to spray the bike in Lucky Strike colors which I've rarely seen done correctly.  It also has the banana swing arm that so many people like.  Honda sued them for patent infringement shortly after this model came out and the banana arm was gone by 93.  The mileage may seem a bit high but you have to remember these bikes are getting up there in age and if it has been maintained I wouldn't sweat the mileage.

From the seller:

up for auction is a 1991 rgv250 vj22. this bike has fresh top end and the power-valve replacement upgrade that faulted the factory models. it has new tyga pipes and silencers, tyga rearsets and a 1500 dollar paint job . the bike runs perfect, and everything even the oil injection works. it has clean calif title and registration that is current. it is the new zealand model that retains the 17 digit vin. new tyga windscreen the bike runs like a scolded dog, pics speak for themselves. brand new tires dunlops chain and sprockets.and the miles are 22000 kilometers

I can sum this bike up on one word: tasteful.  If you've been on the market for an RGV I suggest you take a good look at this one,  it's got a lot going for it.  Check out the bidding .  If you aren't up on RGV's or have questions about them I highly recommend visiting as it is a wealth of information on every model of RGV.   Someone buy this thing; it is worth it just for the amusement of pulling up to a stoplight and having the guy in the car next to you yelling that your bike is broken because it is smoking.

1988 Suzuki RGV250SP VJ21 Schwantz Pepsi Replica NIB!

Alright, so this doesn't appear to come with the box but this RGV is as new as they get!  Located in California is a 1988 Suzuki RGV250SP.  The seller, RMD Motors, sums it up very well "This bike is NEW never started or had gas in it."  The photo shows a bike which can match this claim.  This is the first year of the RGV and also the first SP, featuring a dry clutch as the most distinguishable difference.  These early RGV's have a 17" front, 18" Rear, combination.  This bike is pure eye candy and deserves to be in a glorious living room--if possible.  No asking price is listed but, if you have to ask...  No title information is given but I don't think it would make a serious difference with this bike other than to tack a few thousand onto the total price.  See this RGV on RMD's website here.

1992 Suzuki GSX-R600 With 5,000 Original Miles.

This is a GSX-R600 in fantastic, original, condition with only 5,000 original miles!  Located in Spokane, Washington is a 1992 Suzuki GSX-R600.  This bike still has all of the original warning and specification stickers, and has an extensive service history from a local shop.

" suck (not completely worn out, but are checked and a lil' slippery - i'd replace them (but powder coat rims 1st, as there are a few small blemishes on them); front wheel bearing is going out; petcock likes to remain on 'reserve' - don't ask."

I love the look and condition of this bike.  If I didn't care what my girlfriend said, and I thought very seriously about doing it, this would be in my possession.  This is the first year for the GSX-R600 and is basically a sleeved-down GSX-R750.  The original problem with this bike was that it only had 600cc power but had haul around a 750cc bike.  However, the draw was also that it had the scream of a 400 but, the comfort of a 750--giving Suzuki some access to the largest segment of American sportbike buyers.  This early 600 also had all of the technical benefits (Suspension/Brakes) of the larger displacement bike.  The majority of these bikes were either tracked or dropped at some point and haven't made it through in this condition.  The asking price is $2,700 and the seller seems very motivated.  Being in Spokane, this bike is six-hours from any other major city, giving the buyer a large amount of power.  This bike isn't worth as much as a CBR600F2 in equivalent condition and never will be, so don't plan on buying it as an investment.  Regardless, this would make a very enjoyable weekend rider or a nice garage piece.  See the bike on here.

1998 Suzuki rgv250 vj 23 in Lucky Strike racing colors!

1998 suzuki rgv250 luck strike edition vj23 for sale on ebay.

Located in Visalia, CA is this pristine, low mileage all original example of a classic Suzuki. I added a lot of the pictures from the auction, but there are more to be seen. The seller also lists his phone # for any interested parties.

Last year one of these came in at #5 on the RSBFS "Top 5", most viewed postings and I can see why. Last years bike had an asking price of $16,000.00 bucks so it may have made the list because everyone was looking for gold plated parts. However, this one has been listed with a reserve and currently sits at $2,247.00 with the reserve still on. Based on past RSBFS Lucky Strike listings I can only imagine this one will need to exceed the $10,000 mark to be within the atomic range. I'm guessing closer to 14g's and it would be sitting in your living room. I know these are as rare as any that we post on RSBFS, but the prices that the Lucky Strikes command is really hard to digest. I think I'd take my 10,000 go buy a NSR and have 4,000 to play with, but I've been known to be a bit of a cheap skate too.

Quotes from the auction:

All oem, all original with 2,600 miles. Everything works perfect and the bike is a 9 out of 10 to play it safe. New Dunlop Sportrax tires and 520 gold chain. No dents, scrapes, or bruises, runs and operates perfect. Fuel tank had some very light rust inside and was sealed with Caswell two part epoxy for good measure.

. It's listed as a 7 day auction and it will have about 5 1/2 days remaining by the time you see this on RSBFS. So should you decide that you absolutely can't live without a Lucky Strike rgv vj23 you will have plenty of time to count your Benjamans before the auction ends.

I almost forgot... Has anyone else noticed that sometimes the emblem on the gas tank reads to the rider and other times it reads to the front of the bike??

Here's a RGV at idle for your viewing pleasure:

1991 Suzuki RGV250 for sale on ebay

1991 Suzuki Gamma RGV 250 for sale in Red Bluff, CA

Listed on ebay is this 91 Suzuki RGV that looks to be in nice shape with 14,580 miles. Putting out somewhere in the neighborhood of 58HP, equipped with fully adjustable suspension on both ends, Suzuki's "Banana" swingarm and weighing in at a scant 282 pounds I bet these things rail! Just don't plan on using a the rear brake to "back it in"

It's missing the rear brake calliper and one of the plastic mounts on the left side.

How in the hell do you lose a brake caliper? I'm sure there's one out there available, but I'm still scratching my head on that one.

Maybe Rush should revamp there song "Spirit of the Radio" to "Spirit of Grand Prix"

All joking aside, this is a good looking motorcycle that, in my eyes, doesn't show it's age at all. It still looks good and the only thing that gives it away is it doesn't have radial mount calipers. In the listing the seller states that he has been told it is worth $20,000, but obviously he didn't believe those guys, because it has an opening bid of $7,000.00. That seems a little high to me, but if I'm wrong I know I'll get blasted by some of our viewers. I got my flame suit out of the closet just in case 🙂 . So if you're a Suzuki enthusiasts and want a piece of exotica to toy with here's your chance.

1987 Suzuki RG250 Gamma 2 stroke on ebay

1987 Suzuki RG250 Gamma with 12,087 miles for sale on ebay.

There are quite a few 2-stroke fans on RSBFS and although I am not too familiar with these machines, I do have an appreciation for them. The parallel-engined Suzuki RG250 is quite special in that it was the first mass-produced motorcycle with an aluminum frame and aerodynamic fairing. 1987 was the last production year for the RG250, later replaced by the RGV250 with a V twin. To learn more about the RG250, click HERE.

And here's a :

With 49 hp (this is the Canadian version) on tap, the RG250 won't win any drag races, but with only 287 lbs (dry) to push around, the weight to horsepower ratio ain't too shabby even by modern standards and should make one serious fun machine.

Although I didn't grow up around these smoke machines, 2-strokes remind me of the era when life was a bit more simple and racing was about pure rider talent and cojones - the likes of King Kenny, Barry Sheene, Mick Grant, and Agostini (I may have missed a few, but please spare me).

In any case, this sounds like a Suzuki that I wouldn't mind having a go on!
