32hp of summertime fun


This post is in our archives. Links in this post have been updated to point to similar bikes available to bid on eBay.

1987 Yamaha SRX 250

Location: Indianapolis, IN
Mileage: 3,975
Price: A scant $1,199.00

Looking to stay kewl this summer? What better way than to sport a bikini on a single cylinder Yamaha SRX250?

This thing looks like a ton of fun sporting 32hp and lipstick red rims. I know you’re thinking “32hp doesn’t equal fun”, but when you consider Honda’s highly anticipated CBR 250 (Blek!- it should have been called CB 250) has 25 ponies and will make your wallet lighter by 27 Ben Franklins this is killer!

Like most small bore cycles in the states the SRX suffered in sales and was laid to rest as fast as they could use up the pre-ordered parts. You can count on one hand how many single cylinder street bikes we have here in the states and I can tell you that nothing sounds like a Thumper. I know, it’s almost an oxymoron to say 250cc and Thumper in the same breath, but single cylinder street bikes are just cool- well… sans the CBR250.

There are plenty more pictures to be seen on ebay and this is a classified ad so you can have it today!




  • C’mon-a SRX250? Exotic Sport Bike? Boring beginner bike 24 years ago when new, boring old beginner bike now. Things must be slow- this thing doesn’t fit in the stated mission of the site whatsoever…color me disappointed.

  • Ouch! While I agree it’s not exotic or a grey market import they are definitely rare and nonexistent with 3k miles. Sorry to disappoint, but I think it’s a nice example and fits within our stated mission.

  • Does 32hp sound like a lot for this air-cooled single? Isn’t this in the range of the Ninja 250 twin with water cooling and almost 2 points more compression?

    I’ve seen some references on the web claiming 17hp and wonder if this is closer to the truth.

  • where is this 32 hp figure coming from at the crank? i believe it was the lower 20’s to the rear wheel.

  • That 32 is most likely crank. It’s listed as “Factory Specs” which were done at the crank. a new YZ250F only makes 36 at the wheels after years and millions of dollars of development.

  • I’d take one of these in a heartbeat. Sure, it’s not a liter bike. But small and agile equals FUN on tight backroads. Great find, Doug! Two thumbs up from me!

  • yes doug and mike, i’m on board! and jay, you gotta be right- at the crank, and optimistic at that.

    but i’d have this in a minute! and at 1200$ i just might!add a chin spoiler, seat cowl, and voila!

    btw, my first vintage bike was a 1972 cb 350 twin. 33 rippling horsepower! and it was so fun! front disk from a 73, tapered head bearings, k/n filters, dirt track bars..oh wait, sory..this isn’t rare cafe bikes for sale is it?

  • Tony,

    I plan to start a cafe bikes for sale this spring, stay tuned 😉


  • count me in cousin, count me in!
