Here's another Suzuki RGV 250 much like the one posted a few days back on RSBFS. However, this is the VJ22, with a 90 degree V-twin two-stroke cranking out roughly 65bhp at 10,500rpm. It also has the super-trick looking banana swingarm and upside down forks (rare at the time). These bikes are lightweight machines with good power and superb handling.

Details from the seller-
1992 Suzuki RGV 250N VJ22 with approx 15,500 miles. Current speedo is in miles (19K) but was changed from a kilometer speedo (21K) and have put 2700 miles on the bike since so the total mileage is just under 16K. The bike starts effortlessly on the first kick and runs very strong. Power valves cleaned religiously. Bike was tuned and set up properly for Jolly moto exhaust an runs strong and crisp as well as pulls extremely hard in the proper RPM range.
(Not sure if it was ever rebuilt but based on how tight and crisp it runs / feels perhaps may have been)
At some point – previous owner polished the frame and swing arm ( the nice banana one) to a very high gloss finish or it came from the factory (not sure but it looks very trick)

By the sellers description, it looks like the bike has been titled in both Connecticut and California, a bonus for those looking for a bike like this. Clearly the bike has many modified or replaced parts, including new fairings, wheels, and exhaust. Some of the original parts are included if that makes a big difference to you. Also, the seller highlights that the frame and swingarm may have been polished at some point. The seller claims that the bike runs well and that is important, especially with a two-stroke with that kind of mileage.
The seller has it listed with a BIN price of $7500. Other RGV's have gone for this kind of money but with all of the replaced parts you will have to decide how much you're willing to drop on a bike like this. For me, the kind of power, weight and handling this bike can offer makes it worth a look. If you agree, check out the auction here!
