Simi Valley, CA – 8,000mi – @10,500 BIN

We have had a nice little streak of two-strokes here on RSBFS and I am never one to mess with the streak. The Honda MC28 was the pinnacle of the NSR250’s as it was the last generation. It featured PGMIV technology as well as the Proarm swing arm as seen on other Honda models of the time. This is what 250 two-strokes are all about!

I bet you are thinking, wow a titled and registered NSR250SP Repsol for sale right here in the US! Don’t worry, I did the same for a couple seconds. But alas, it was not the case. This doesn’t look like an SP Repsol as there are some slight graphics difference and mainly the wheels being orange and not black that came on the SP. However, it is damn close and still a good looking and awesome NSR250.

From the seller:

THIS BIKE IS IN GREAT CONDITION. IT HAS 1200 MILES ON A NEW FACTORY TOP END. ENGINE IS IN PERFECT CONDITION. FEW SCRACHES ON BODY, 2 SMALL CRACKS IN FRAME, A FEW PAINT KNICKS ON FRONT WHEEL. IT IS A SIX SPEED TWO STROKE RACER WITH CALIFORNIA LEGAL PLATES AND REGESTRATION. IT HAS THE 030 CARD FOR POWER, NIKON CHAMBERS, MODIFIED AIR BOX WITH WIRE HARNESS. IT HAS A SINGLE SIDED SWING ARM, DRY CLUTCH AND RUNS ON UNLEADED GAS. IT ALSO HAS LEGAL HORN,TURNSIGNALS,LOCKINGGAS CAP AND LOCKING TRUNK. IT HAS NO SPEEDOMETER OR ODOMETER. IT COMES WITH STOCK CHAMBERS,STOCK AIR BOX REAR PASSENGER PEGS, REAR WHEEL STAND AND PIT BULL FRONT WHEEL STAND. (SEE PHOTOS). IT WAS PURCHASED USED FROM A NAVY SEAL THAT BOUGHT IT IN TAILAND. THE BUYER WILL PAY FOR ALL SHIPPING CHARGES. FOR ANSWERS TO ANY QUESTION PLEASE E-MAIL

It seems like a tidy little smoker. And with a California registration, it could be ready to ride legally. I would like to know if there is a title or just a bill of sale with the bike. The seller is definitely looking for a premium price for an NSR. If it were a real MC28 SP-Repsol, then yes $10.5k is a good price. But as it sits now, I think it is a little over priced. I could see this thing moving in the $8k range. You can check out the auction and decide for yourself here.

  • Well, since Repsol MC28s are 1996 only, then we know for sure it is a non original one. The “small cracks in frame” would make me nervous so I would definitely check that out. It is hard to tell with the pics, but I don’t think that the wheels are Magteks so perhaps it isn’t an SP, but maybe an SE. As for the missing speedo/odo, that is due to the fact that it is running an HRC 030 card and it will only display the engine water temp. If you were to get a standard card, then it would show speed and mileage and start adding them up again. This means that you really have no idea regarding mileage on this bike, but no matter, it still looks to be a decent bike, albeit priced a tad high in my opinion.

  • Minor detail but the shock res is mounted in a non stock location there is a two mounting holes in front of the the kick start level for a bracket to mount the res to. It is almost impossible to do the routing of the hose without removing the engine from the frame there is not enough open space to physically fit the res through if the motor is still mounted in the frame.

  • @Joel, those are not Magtek’s. So with the dry clutch and adjustable suspension it is likely an SE.
    @SmokinJoe, I noticed the res too! How about the huge cutout in the lower..!
    Cool looking bike.

  • Personally owning an original Repsol MC28 I would be a little hesitant on this one, its ok to put Repsol colors on a 28 SE and try to make it a SP, but the up close photos show its in poor condition and even with and think 10,000 leads me to believe someone has had a little too much cough syrup, I agree with Joe, who is an authority on 28’s this one doesn’t even have the Magteks. As stated in a previous comment because of the 030 card, you don’t even know how many miles are on it, and body work is far from mint, I think 10,000 is a stretch….
