Same Bike Different Look: 1991 Suzuki RGV250
This isn't the usual sort of RGV we feature but it has some nice features if you are looking for a stroker to get out and enjoy what it was built to do; scream its' guts out.
What caught my eye:
1. A title
2. A nice set of Sugaya race chambers
3. Modern Tyga bodywork.
I've noticed Tyga bodywork is selling quite nicely. What do you guys think about the looks? I'm old school. I think the Suzuki employee who sat down and drew up the RGV250 did a hell of job. Anyone wanting a more modern look though doesn't have much of an alternative. Somehow I think the Tyga stuff makes it look somewhat generic. Opinions?
It's a 1991 so you get the banana swing arm everyone likes.
1991 Suzuki RGV 250 VJ22a. Japanese Import. Clean Florida title/registration with frame VIN. Not a salvage or frame swap. Sugaya pipes, SP top end, wet clutch, Aprilia Full Power kit race ECU from a cup bike (plug and play), unrestricted carbs, woodcraft racing clip-ons, Tyga Performance GP Bodywork with HID headlight. I have most of the original parts and spare power valves.
I had it imported in 2009 and had it cleanly titled by a lawyer, and rode it weekly until 6 months ago. Treated with nothing but the best oils (Motul). The GP bodywork is not installed on the front end, still in box. Probably time for new chain/gears/tires. Mechanically the bike works perfectly. Sad to sell it as it's my dream bike I had so many plans for it, but I'm never riding a bike again.
The Sugaya's are a nice touch. They are the standard everything is judged against with VJ22's. They came with very flimsy tin mufflers and they are always beat up. I don't know if I've ever seen and pair not dented. There are plenty of alternatives out there for different mufflers.
Everyone likes a box goodies. Be sure to read here because he explains the mileage.
Comes with a whole box of goodies! Stock rear bodywork, stock subframe, tanks, spare parts, and the rest of the Tyga kit. Oh and PS, the mileage is unknown, the clock was busted and I needed one to get the bike titled. Purchased one off ebay UK. It reads 31k+ but that's not actual. No idea what the bike actually has. Less then a few thousand since last top end rebuild I do know that 🙂 It takes the same kit as the Aprilia Cup RS 250 race bike. They can be had all over the USA for $300 shipped and it's so easy you can do it while pumping for gas. Well not literally, but it's easy.
As valuable as gold? I think so.
If breathing two stroke fumes hasn't rotted your brain, you may remember this bike made an appearance on RSBFS back in 2010. The asking price was sky high at the time.
There seems to be plenty of interest in auction but the reserve has yet to be met with only a couple of days remaining. Jump on in if you are interested.
