1992 Honda NSR250 SP Rothmans for sale

1992 Honda NSR250 SP Rothmans

Location: San Antonio, TX
Mileage 4,650
Price: $7,000.00

First and foremost, this is a steal! I found it over on while checking out specs for NSR’s. It’s an older post that was updated 12.21.10 by the owner saying that he hadn’t bumped it to the top in over a year, but the bike was still available and the price is now $7,000.00.

The only down side to this bike is that it doesn’t have a title, but from what I understand isn’t impossible with a little elbow grease and leg work.

Don’t let this one get away if you’re in the market- Oh, I forgot to mention that it does have the Magtek wheels, brand new OEM fairings and a new OEM crank(?- I’m sure that was cheap) Woot Woot!

Unused HRC Gems: 2008 RS125 And RS250

Unused HRC Gems: 2008  RS125 And RS250

No matter how cool these bikes are, I still blame you Honda for the demise of the two stroke!  It is just such a pity these bikes are disappearing.  I’m not a Honda fan by any means but there is no denying they built some of the best track two strokes the world ever saw.  Honda/HRC’s RS series are the mainstay of 250 and 125 classes across the country.  These two were apparently bought for a rider who got injured and never returned to racing.  Both bikes are 2008’s, never started and have their complete spares kits.

Asking price for the 250 is $25,000.  These bikes have been around for years so there are plenty of go faster parts out there for them.  I did notice though, HRC does not list any official parts for them anymore.  They do for the CBR954RR so go figure.

Asking price for the 125 is $12,000.  He does mention in some later posts on the forum he is open to offers.  They do have a beautiful purpose built look to them.  They can be seen on the WERA Forum here.

I found this searching for a HRC video.  Not relevant to the two bikes above but what a pretty restoration.

Suzuki WSS Glory Days: 2004 Suzuki GSX-R600 Alstare W/700 Miles

Suzuki WSS Glory Days:  2004 Suzuki GSX-R600 Alstare W/700 Miles

Yes, there were actually glory days for Suzuki in WSS.  I know it is hard to believe now since Suzuki spends about 25 cents in the class.  Does anyone remember Stephane Chambon?  He was an absolute joy to watch on the GSX-R.  As usual, the Suzuki was a bit underpowered but Chambons’ munchkin size  and sheer will kept the Suzuki on pace.  If he won a race there were plenty of burn outs and antics.  He kept the GSX-R in the top five for several years and actually won the title in 1999.  Unfortunately, for the first time in a long time I couldn’t find a good clip on Youtube so you’ll have to be satisfied with this small profile of him from MCN’s page.

I know this bike doesn’t have the allure of our usual posts or the nice pictures.  I wanted to include it just for the fact that it only has 700 miles on it and it is completely stock (it is lowered though which is easily reversed).  Rare indeed for one of these to survive in this condition.  Most are flogged, modified, painted, chromed and god knows what else.  By 2004 the Suzuki WSS program was about done (I think Alstare was completely out of WSS) so in reality this is more of a tribute to the liter bike that Suzuki actually had success with  but I  always consider them a tribute to Chambon.  Just a nice little piece of Suzuki race history that has survived the abuse for $4,500.  It is on the San Fran Craigslist page waiting for a new home.

1998 Aprilia RS250 Titled!

1998 Aprilia RS250 street going and titled!

Location: Dickson, TN
Mileage: 4,000
Price: $5,700.00

Okay, since I can’t spring for this I thought I’d pass it along. I talked to the seller this morning and was hoping he’d trade me, but it was a ‘no can do’.

I think $5,700 is a rock’n price for this bike, in this condition, with the low mileage and the magic sheet of paper.

It is supposedly all stock except for the pipes and the plastics are in good shape with minor scratches.

If you pick this one up let me know-

Location: Spring Branch, TX
Price: $6,500.00 with no reserve on ebay now!
Mileage: 17,317

These are some of the hardest 400’s to come by in the states. We have featured more VFR400 and RVF400’s than CBR400’s. You want to be the talk of your next Hooter’s Bike Night? Pull up on this one and make sure you have a bottle of water with you because you’ll be dry from all of the gum flapping you’ll be doing.

They are very rare in the US and even more so in this condition.

Recently been serviced, NEW Two Brothers Racing full exhaust system ($900 USD).

Has always been garaged, never raced, adult owned and is in excellent condition! She starts, runs and rides great! Everything works – idles smooth and runs strong. This bike always draws a crowd. I’m constantly asked if it is a current model and love watching people’s jaw drop when I tell them its a 97 model! I know I’m going to regret selling it…

When these CBR’s were available, they had all the features of a big CBR just in a smaller package. They feature a DOHC, four valve per cylinder, transverse four cylinder, four stroke, producing 53hp and rev’ing to 14,500rpm. An aluminum frame kept weight down to 163kg and they featured a Showa adjustable rear shock and flat-side carb’s . This bike is exotic to us American’s featuring the dependability of a Honda four-stroke.
