Eye Candy: 1991 Honda NSR250 MC21 Kato Replica

Update 11.23.12: We love this look of this bike but it’s failed to sell a few times. Having been relisted several times, the seller has now included a buy-it-now of $12500 in the latest listing on eBay. The highest bid we’ve seen is $7600 in previous listings. Links updated. -dc

Update 11.9.2012: Back on eBay. Closed last time at $6500 without meeting reserve. Already up to $5100 with 4 days to go. Links updated. -dc

Love it! I’m a sucker for replica’s and this Daijiro Kato replica doesn’t dissapoint. I believe this would be a replica of the NSR250 Kato piloted in the 200o Grand Prix season, finishing third overall. Sadly, Kato was killed at the Suzuka GP in 2003 riding in MotoGP.

By the way, these pictures don’t do the bike justice, you have to click on the video below to appreciate this machine. I think the word “wow” might come to mind a few times.

Sounds lovely, nice smooth idle.

It is looking good from every direction.

Now that the pictures and video have sucked you in, here are the details:

Low mileage and a title to go with the good looks. Moto2 is entertaining to watch but I still miss these bikes and their factory GP cousins.

Not a thing out of place. They even went with a GP type brake reservoir set up.

I really don’t have anything meaningful to add. You either love the race replica look or you don’t. If you do, this is one fine example. It looks like the seller is seeking top dollar from the info he posted on the WWW. The only problem with the reps, no matter how stunning, is finding a buyer who was in as much love with that GP machine as you were. Maybe more importantly, is his love matched by his willingness to open his check book?

The auction is up and running and I’m betting quite a ways to go before hitting the reserve. Here it is.

  • Bike is def a looker but deep down inside under all the plastic it is an MC21 which isn’t a bad thing at all..
    In my bias RGV minded opinion the bike is worth $6k and probably $7 if it were stock. Now don’t get me wrong , this is a very nice bike and I wish the seller the best of luck , I just don’t see this going over $6K..

  • That bike is a lot of fun for $6k. I think he’ll get a bit more. If it was in California, with title, he’d get $8k. It’s a nice bike that is meant to be ridden as it has little collector value with all the mods. Looks like a nice solid ride.

  • Yes, eye candy indeed. This bike looks awesome and at 290 pound2 it has fun written all over it. $7K works for me!

  • At $8,500 (10/26) and the reserve is off.

  • […] […]

  • $6500.00 will be tops for this beautiful MC21.
    If the bike was in all white drabb it would be worth $5K
    Paint scheme dresses her up $1500.00.
    Sweet looker though – gotta give it that..

  • What the hell happened? I was not drinking earlier today (I think I wasn’t at least) and that thing was at $8,500 and the reserve had been met. Pulled bids? Seller kicked some bids back?

  • He bought the bike for 6K at the Ducati repair shop in Fort Lauderdale, I had a look at it, its a jap spec bike that an amatuer painted and restored, beware! You are nuts to pay more than 4K for this bike!

  • What are you talking about it’s a jap spec bike?! ALL nsr 250’s where JDM only! any nsr sold outside of japan was a grey market import. What you meant to say is it is an R model not an SE/SP model.

  • I have a 1993. it was the limited run of 900 Commemorative Edition SP’s, easily identifiable by the HRC logo. Ive been told its worth $10k. There is nothing better then pulling up to a fellow rider. The bike always get the first look. They they trip when they she a chick riding it. Who wants to ride the same thing everyone has. I like them rare.

  • If only I had a service manual 🙁

  • Any jap spec 250 has 45 hp, and its too expensive to get more out of it, I prefer the export 250’s with more power and higher value.

  • Looks to be very similar to one put together by Paul and Matt very early on in their quest to build NSR products..http://tyga-performance.com/site/index.php?cPath=73_186&osCsid=8993e775490d32fed2580cc1a7e39093

  • SheRides-manuals are available here http://nsr250.net/forums/viewtopic.php?t=9944

  • Problem is the title is already suspect.

    From the eBay ad:

    BIKE IS AN MC21 REGISTERED IN FLORIDA AS AN MC24

    MC24 is a CB250 NightHawk – so if they washed a CB250 frame title, the buyer better hope the CB250 frame was destroyed in the process.

    If it crops up durign a title search by the registering DMV then “Lucy joo gots some splainin to do”.

    Either way, $12K refelcts the parts list, not the bike itself. The seller is pricing and seling the bike based on the exotic parts used in the build, which is not actually how things normally work out.

    Great bike but 12K great??
