Today’s CBR250RR is another one of those grey market oddities, a bike that’s extremely rare here in the USA, but not considered particularly exotic elsewhere. Built from 1990 through 1996 and nicknamed the "Baby Blade" for obvious reasons, it was a small-displacement stepping-stone bike for riders before they moved up to a larger bike like a 600. But unlike here, where learner bikes are quickly discarded or skipped entirely by riders who foolishly think of 600 supersports as “starter bikes,” these are high-quality, sophisticated machines, a far cry from the relatively crude CBR300 of today.

Instead of that bike’s simple and torquey single-cylinder engine, the CBR250RR used a 249cc liquid-cooled inline four that made 40hp and would rev safely to a shrieking 18,000rpm. Backed by a six-speed gearbox, the package was good for over 100mph. It wasn’t as light or as raw as an equivalent two-stroke, but it offered up a far more refined and durable experience. A 250 two-stroke is really its own thing, and the CBR was intended more as a high-quality learning tool before moving on to a larger CBR600 or 900.

Today’s featured listing is either a 1992 or 1993 model and looks like it’s in very good, mostly original condition.

From the seller:
Honda CBR250RR for Sale

It's a CBR250RR.  It's titled, but the year doesn't coincide with what year it probably is.  I believe it’s a 1992 or 1993 model.  When I originally picked it up, I had my mechanic go through everything.  The only major thing was cleaning the carbs, adjusting the inlet and exhaust valves and spot welding the exhaust can where the springs latch.  We removed the heat-wrapping that was there also.

It's essentially stock minus the full exhaust (stainless steel).  There doesn't seem to be any distinct markings on the full system, so I am unsure which brand it is.

The front cowl is ABS, the side fairings are fiberglass and the rear tail is OEM.

I bought the bike with 8,1XX kilometers and it's currently at 12,7XX kilometers.

It's been a weekend street bike, I have several other bikes that I ride in my rotation, this one is the one I'm willing to let go for greener pastures.

I do have the manual for the bike, it's in Japanese.

Bike is currently located at Speedwerks in Delaware.

Will pay for anyone who wants a pre purchase inspection done.

$Price: 4,700 or best offer SOLD.

These are difficult machines to put a price on. Their origins are relatively pedestrian, although they epitomize what Honda has always done, offering up engineering sophistication to buyers at all levels. And although they were always intended as entry-level bikes, they provide performance and handling not generally found in this type of machinery here in the US. For riders who subscribe to the “Slow Bike Fast” philosophy, these represent a pretty ideal balance of performance. A similar experience can be had on Honda’s CB1 for less money, but the 250RR is just that much cooler and more unusual: you’re definitely going to pay a premium for rarity with a bike like this, but for fans of small bikes with stratospheric redlines, it’s hard to beat a 250RR.

May 1st Mailbag — A Little Late but Worth the Wait

Hey guys,

Sorry for the delay this week but we got a ton of submissions, probably twice as many as usual. While I've passed on a few almost all made the cut. Thanks for your submissions and have a great rest of your week!

Chris M shoots us his listing for a 1997 Moto Guzzi Daytona RS. Just 5400 miles and located in San Diego. Good luck with the sale!

Perhaps the deal of the day (even with the goofy signals), Chris forwards the first of several sweet finds in the Toronto area. Here's a 1996 Kawasaki ZX-7RR for just $4500 CAD. Doug needs to a leave a comment on this one!

Chris S. forwarded us this great looking 1985 Ducati MHR Mille in San Francisco. $21500, miles not disclosed.

Dan spotted this freshly imported 1989 Honda VFR400 NC30 for sale in Toronto. 27k kilometers, $6000 CAD.

By now you know I'm a sucker for mass produced sportbikes of the past that have somehow survived. This one strikes a chord with me as my first bike in college was an FZR 600. This one spotted by Louie has only 70 miles and is located in the Winston-Salem area. Seller is asking just $3400. {flame suit on!}

Gregg spotted another sharp Aprilia Bol 'd Or RSV1000R in Reno for $9350 with under 5k miles!

Chris spotted an interesting 1992 Yamaha 3TJ FZR400RR for sale in Toronto. After conferencing with Doug, it appears it does have OEM bodywork though looks painted. For $2499 CAD might be worth a look for such a trick little machine. For those in the U.S., check out our sponsor SpeedWerks, who have extensive FZR400 experience on track.

Craig spotted this Red Bull Rookies Cup KTM 125 GP Bike on the WERA classifieds. It's a brand new bike, never ridden, and has spares. $24k.

Adam forwarded this rare Bimota SB6 in New Haven for $9999. Rare because it's actually been ridden nearly 9k miles!

Tim forwards us another nearly new track bike, a 2008 Honda CBR125 track bike with just 2km's. For just $4500, this looks like a fun track day machine for a smaller rider.

Yes, another Yamaha RZ350 “King” Kenny Roberts Edition (’85)

Location: Ashville, North Carolina

Mileage: 3,439

Price: Auction, currently $4,200 with a reserve

There seems to be a run of Yamaha RZ350's lately on RSBFS. Like for instance this one just posted by our fearless leader, Dan. Like the others, this one is a Kenny Roberts edition, a rare two-stroke sportbike brought to the U.S. market. And I'm sure everybody here knows about Kenny Roberts and his stellar career in Grand Prix racing. A true American racing legend. These are cool bikes and it's great to see clean examples out there for people to take home.

Here's what the seller has to say-

Beautiful low mileage Yamaha RZ 350 with 3,439 original miles. Bike has expansion chambers matched with Tommey mufflers and runs great. The paint and bright work are in excellent condition and the guages are clear and in perfect working order. Bike has on a set of new Dunlop Arrowmax tires. Please note the many detailed photos as this machine is in overall excellent condition and is a blast to drive.

And some more pics-

This looks to be a clean, low-mile example. The seller doesn't provide a lot of description except to highlight to expansion chambers and  pipes. The rest of the bike appears stock and in good shape. You may want to ask more about the condition and the maintenance history so you know exactly what you're getting into. Low mileage bikes are great but not running a bike (or car) can have issues of its own.

There are plenty of bids so far and these usually go in the $5k range. So we'll see where it lands. But if you missed out the other RZ350's recently posted or this one is near you, negating shipping, or you just like them,  then go check this bike out.

Beautiful ’91 Ducati 851 Superbike- For a Good Cause

Location: Dover, Delaware

Mileage: 17,863

Price: Auction

Here we have another nice bike from our friends at Speedwerks. And the sale would help someone who's dealing with some serious health issues and the bills that go with them.

The 851 is one of the best looking bikes Ducati has ever built. And we certainly agree the white frame takes that cool factor up another notch. The '91 saw updates with Showa front forks and Ohlins rear shock. These upgrades went along with the twin-cylinder, liquid cooled motor and famous desmodromic valve actuation. Bottom line, this is one sexy bike.

Photos-

And from the seller-

This is a very nice example of an early Ducati Superbike. 1991 model just brought to us by a long time racer/customer/friend.

This bike has never been raced or to a track day, Street ridden only.

History,, he is reported to be the second owner and purchased the bike in early 2003. At that time the bike was registered and titled with 15,752 miles, The bike received an extensive service at Fast By Feracci, including a 916 kit,head work(belts etc),power commander and exhaust system. We saw him last for service and new Pirelli's in late 04. Tire's are in good nick as pictured.  Stock pipes are included with sale. He put a couple thousand miles on it street riding only, shortly after,, he was diagnosed with brain cancer.

The bike was kept in climate controlled storage and shows no signs of rust or oxidation. the photos with the body off are as we received it.

The assembled pics are after a quick clean up and safety inspection. He's not dead (-: (I know your wondering) but he is unable to ride/balance.

He also needed the money for enormous medical bill's.(apparently chemotherapy is a non-deductible option for BCBS,unless you wanna live) So the money is going to a good cause, helping keep the top of Rob's head and the roof of his mouth in place.

The bike is ready to ride and needs nothing, *except a new windscreen*,,he lost his balance pushing it up into the truck. We are sourcing a replacement windscreen and it will be included in the sale. The bike is for sale on the showroom here and locally so we reserve the right to terminate the auction any time.Inspections in person are welcome 10-7 mon-sat by appt. 

No buy it now! No Reserve! email any offers to steve at speedwerks dot com.   High Resolution images are avail. copy,paste and GO! picasaweb.google.com/116165546705552642509/Ducati851

This is a pretty rare model and in fantastic condition for it's age. It's ready to ride or show off in your home/office.

Personally I think all old white framed Duc's are cool. Kinda factory racebikeish. 

Shipping is your responsibility but we use Keyboard carriers with great results,fee's are on their site but figure $400-600 depending where you are, we are east coast 19904. They ship door to door with no prep or crate required. We can crate it for an additional charge if you choose another carrier. Reasonably distance deliver is available for .50 cents per mile plus tolls/service charge. In one the enclosed climate controled Speedwerks Molester vans pictured. Molester not included but they do have candy in the console if you want a snack.......Good Luck! and keep an eye on our auctions for a kick ass Kenny Roberts RZ350 all original coming up soon.

As described by the seller, the bike seems to be in good shape and ready to ride except for the mentioned windscreen. The seller is going to take care of that, so not a big worry. Mileage isn't bad, especially considering the age. Also, it should be noted, this is being sold for someone who certainly has fell on some difficult times. So you actually have a chance to buy a beautiful bike and help out someone who needs it.

So if you've been looking, here's a chance for a great bike and a chance to do some good. Win/win in my book. So go check this auction out!
