It's Moving Soon, Reserve Met: 2004 Aprilia RS250 Challenge Cup
Well here is your chance if you missed out on a RS250 Challenge Cup bike back in 04. It isn't brand spankin new but it is damn close. Maybe best of all, the auction is for real now with the reserve already being met. Plan your bidding strategy now.
Before you ask:
This motorcycle "IS NOT STREET LEGAL". There is "NO TITLE". It is being sold the same way I purchased it, with a "BILL OF SALE".
Yep, it hasn't been used much and here is the story:
Offered for sale is my 2004 Aprilia RS 250 Challenge Cup bike. This is one of my little jewels in my collection that I said I would never sell. The economy here in LasVegas is horrible and I need to generate some cash so I am forced to let it go to a new home. This bike was originally purchased new, by a friend of mine in 2004 from a Ducati/Aprilia/Motoguzzi dealer that I managed here in LasVegas. According to Aprilia, this was the very last RS 250 shipped out of the North American warehouse. The dealership received the bike on 11-13-03. The original owner did one track day with it and decided the power band, being use to the Ducati, wasn't to his liking. I was thrilled to be able to purchase it from him, as I have always wanted one. In the last eight years, it has had a total of four mild track days on it. The odometer reads 408km or 254mi. Since I have owned this bike, it has either sat in my Ducati specialties shop on stands or displayed on stands in my home as pictured in this ad. The stands are not included with the bike. The bike is in as new condition, never been damaged in any way. It looks like it did the day it rolled out of the crate. I know this because I am the one that uncrated it and prepped it. This bike has never even gotten dirty, never been washed, the chain has never been adjusted. The slicks on it are just old and hard. They will need to be replaced before it sees another track day. Also, the rear display stand is not kind to the rear tire due to the tight fit. The bike comes with the original owners manual, both original keys, and all the extra parts that came with it which are pictured. Including 41 and 43 tooth rear sprockets and the 13 and 15 tooth fronts, extra front fork springs and adjusting tool. These are all new and never been used. I just put a brand new Shorai Lithium race battery in it today.
This photo got me thinking. Kick starting; gone. Carbs; gone. Two strokes; gone. This thing is already a museum piece. If you are new to the two stroke 250 scene, that is a RGV250 engine tucked in there.
Yikes, who stuck that there?
If you are still on the fence about bidding, the bike is located in Las Vegas. Work it the right way and you could come away with a hell of a weekend and a shiny RS250. Work it the wrong way and we see you on Pawn Stars pawing a shiny RS250 to pay off your casino debt.
