When I was a child in the mid 80s, I used to spend my summers in the sea resort of Santa Severa, just north of Rome (Italy). I still remember being totally captured by a guy who used to park his RG 500 along the sidewalk besides the beach. Quite a sporty ride to go to the beach don’t you think ? I thought the sea salt and the sand wouldn’t do any good to the 2 stroker. What was most special though, were 4 hand crafted “Jolly Moto” expansion exhaust pipes that made the bike look and sound like a race machine. What we have here is the little brother of the RG 500, the featherlight V powered RG 250.
This sample found in Germany was ridden between 1989 and 1995. It was then sent to sleep for a few years, until in 2010, when the owner gave it a fresh refurbish with some track ready components as described below (including those nostalgia inducing Jolly pipes):
Due to lack of time I am selling my Suzuki RGV 250 VJ21. The machine has hardly run, from 1989 to 1995 RGV was used on the road, then un-resigned and put to sleep until October 2010. As of 2010, was brought back to life, but since then only little driven.
Did the RGV converted into racing machine (professional), but can also be driven on the road, according to the. With a few simple steps (from turn signals, lights taping) the motorcycle is ready for the track, such as classical two-stroke Cup classic race.

The RGV has a very low mileage of just below 7000 km. The repainted rims always cause some suspicion, but the picture with the very clean and scratch less cockpit might re-assure you.
With about a week to go and no reserve in place, this could be a bargain. Considering that many Germans are on holidays in these days, the Suzuki might go unnoticed. That won’t be the case if you are a RSBFS reader 🙂
