1989 Suzuki RGV250 Gamma Project Bike In California

This is a great two stroke project RGV250 in California!  Located in San Francisco, California is a 1989 Suzuki RGV250 Gamma with no mileage listed.  This seller states:

This is a non-running project bike. New top end, new fork seals, new steering head bearings. I have stock and after-market exhaust pipe and a few other parts to go with bike, but otherwise what is shown in photo is it.

The asking price on this RGV is $1,500.  This is a good price for someone who knows how to finish this bike and is looking to track it or knows how to get a title as it probably doesn't currently have one.  These are great little two strokes making 58hp while only weighing in at 284lbs.  If you've got some time, have a look at this RGV on Craigslist here.

2000 Aprilia RS250 Titled & Registered In Southern California

This is a nicely modified Aprilia RS250 that is titled & registered in California!  Located in Monrovia, California is a titled 2000 Aprilia RS250 with a 15 digit VIN and 3,854 miles on the clock.  The seller states that this bike is in fantastic condition and features:  "arrow exhaust, ohlins steering dampner, Woodcraft rearsets, floating front disks, quick shifter and more!" ...and... "Also a bunch of spares: levers, exhaust, alternate fork and shock springs, sprockets, etc."  The asking price is $7,000 which I would say is correct for a California bike with lower miles, a title, some good mod's and some spares.  See the other California RS250's we've posted here.  Spring isn't an exciting time for Southern California so hurry up and buy a decent rider to enjoy 'round!  See this RS on Craigslist here.

Titled 1994 ? Suzuki RGV250SP ? on Ebay

Titled 1994 ? Suzuki RGV250SP ? on Ebay

Did you notice the question marks?  Well, I have a lot of questions about this RGV up for auction on Ebay.  My biggest question is: is this really an SP?  As it sits in the pictures, it is not.  I do not see the dry clutch (mentioned in the text) nor do I see the adjustable suspension.  You usually see a dampener hanging off the rear left of the bike.  I'm also pretty sure that is 1993 bodywork not 94.    I hate to pile on but VJ22's do not have electric starting as stated in the auction (VJ23's do).  The mileage is stated at roughly 2,500 miles.  If correct, it looks like those were a rough 2,500.  My advice would be to ask the seller a lot of questions before bidding so you know what you are bidding on.

Now with that out the way the bike does have some good points.  The obvious one being a title.  That allows you to sleep at night knowing you can get the bike registered.  The bike is also sporting some Sugaya aftermarket pipes.  They may look different because they are the side by side style instead of the normal stacked pipes.  Sugaya pipes are highly regarded among RGV owners.  It looks like the seller has some extras to go along with the bike as well.

The bidding has already started and seems very active for a bike with a lot of question marks, dust and rust.  I'm a firm believer that a bike should be cleaned up before listing.  The seller has a Buy It Now price of almost $9,000.  I will be kind and say that is optimistic at best. I hate to be a bit of a downer on this bike but the information provided doesn't quite match up with what I'm seeing in the pictures.  Take a look at the auction .

1991 Suzuki RGV250SP Titled on Ebay

1991 Suzuki RGV250SP Titled on Ebay

Here it is, back by popular demand of RSBFS readers.  You may remember this RGV250SP from a couple of months ago.  It got a new owner but is back for sale.  In my opinion this is one of the most desired RGV models out there.  First it's and SP (dry clutch, close ratio gearbox, adj. suspension, rare).  Second it has the banana swing arm and third it has one of the most popular paint schemes on a RGV.  Maybe the best feature though is that it is titled: am I correct?  It appears to be in good shape with low mileage (considering age) but the seller states if has a few bumps an bruises.

From the seller:

For sale is my 1991 Suzuki RGV250SP. Yes, this is a real SP w/dry clutch, close ratio transmission, fully adjustable suspension, larger carbs etc etc. Bike has a total of 9300 original kilometers. Bike is all original in rare unmolested condition. This was originally a Japanese spec bike but I have updated it with a  European spec de-restricted SAPC unit.  Only known issues are leaking forks seals and the right turn signal doesn't work (burn out bulb?)  All in all this is a nice original bike. It is not perfect, has a few nicks,cracks and dings hear and there but for a 20 year old bike it is very nice.  It is plated and registered here in California and the registration is current and up to date.


It will be very interesting to see what this .  It has everything going for it except maybe mint condition status.  The first time around the asking price was $4200 w/non functioning clutch.  One small note: in one photo on the old posting the bike has a different tail section on it. If I remember correctly that tail piece with the white background is off a standard RGV.  I'm not hinting at a great conspiracy but might be worth asking about.  One nice thing about RGV's is that there is a large supply of aftermarket goodies that are readily available thanks to the internet.  I've seen anything from bolt on stuff to race prep engine work.  So if you get tired of your boring SP there is plenty to spend your paycheck on.  Unless you are holding out for an ultra rare SP2 it's time to raid the savings account.

Here is some fun viewing to get you in the mood to bid.  It is the promotional video for the standard 92 RGV.

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 RGV250.co.uk 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.
