Not the GP replica, but still a bantamweight champ, the streetable RS250 ( full VIN ) is a fun afternoon waiting to happen. Built for the road from 1995-2002, the RS250 boasts 70-odd hp and just over 300 lbs.
An interesting V-twin of only 249cc, the Suzuki-powered RS250 has Aprilia intake, ECU, and expansion chambers ( with Arrow carbon mufflers ). Power comes is strong at 9,000 ( ! ) rpm and redlines at nearly 12,000. Kick start only, as a starter and bigger battery would push the weight up by almost 10 percent. Lovely polished aluminum perimeter frame has matching banana swingarm, shaped to accomodate the expansion chambers. Adjustable Showa 40mm upside-down forks lead the Sachs rear monoshock. The Brembo brakes could handle a much larger bike - 298 fronts disks with 200 mm rear. The monoposto layout is surprisingly comfortable for a full size adult.
Only lightly used with under 3,000 miles, this RS250 looks pretty good in the limited photos. There are some updates, new parts, and repairs that the owner describes in the eBay auction:

Not locked onto the racetrack, the DOT RS250 can take you anywhere, and might be a rarer sight outside your favorite breakfast place than in the pits...
