The RS250 Challenge was the only version Aprilia ever offered U.S. customers, and as you can see it was a track ready version without headlights, signals, and other road amenities. The Challenge was made for a one make race series that followed the AMA calendar. I remember being at Sears Point and seeing one brand new at the dealer area and hoping a street version would soon follow. Of course it never did.
The Challenge is based on the later MKII version of the RS250, which are easy to spot from the digital dash cluster and revised fairings. This example has been used as intended though not in the Challenge race series. It has also had a thorough engine rebuild according to the seller, so you should be all set to hit your local track where it truly is in it's element.
