Two-For-One: 1992 Honda NSR250SP with Rothmans and Repsol Plastics

1992 Honda NSR250SP Repsol R Front High

If you’re a fan of two-stroke GP replicas, then this little Honda NSR250SP needs no introduction. Interestingly, it looks like there are two different bikes in the photos, but a quick read of the listing indicates that he’s got two complete sets of plastics, one Repsol and one Rothmans, although the headlight configuration is obviously different for the two. Which is sort of cool: bored some rainy weekend when you’d rather be out riding? Grab some tools and swap your bodywork!

1992 Honda NSR250SP Repsol R Front

The NSR250R was powered by a 249cc, liquid-cooled two-stroke 90° v-twin that featured Honda’s ATAC torque-boosting system to plump up the characteristically thin two-stroke midrange. The cassette-type six-speed gearbox is a nice feature, but probably not much use for anyone outside of a race team: designed for faster gearing changes trackside, it provides a nice talking point for the rest of us.

1992 Honda NSR250SP Repsol R Side

Although it’s titled for road use in New York, with all the spare parts, this might make an excellent road and track machine, although you wouldn’t want to risk that Rothman’s bodywork. Or probably the Repsol! Fortunately, it looks like it comes with spare plastics as well…

Obviously, this thing’s a bit of a mongrel, although it looks like it combines the best of several generations of NSR250’s, so that’s not necessarily a bad thing, unless you’re a purist. Any experts want to weigh in on the choices the seller made in building this little monster?

Today’s Featured Listing is this rare and very low mileage Cabin Tobacco color schemed NSR250SP MC21. The seller states it’s an all original model with OEM bodywork, stickers, wiring, etc. This means of course that it’s restricted being a JDM motorcycle, but for the collector that wants one as it was from the showroom, your wait may be over.

For Display Purposes Only: 1994 Honda NSR250SP Rothman’s Edition

Originally posted in July, this NSR is back on eBay. Links updated. -dc

This is actually a very nice NSR250R SP in Rothman’s livery, a road-legal version of Honda’s 250 race bike that obviously includes all the necessary lights and signals to keep you looking suitably responsible. The little 250cc two-stroke v-twin pumped out about 45hp as stock, but up to 60 when suitably de-restricted. Which, when pushing a bike that weighs under 300lbs dry, would make it quite the surprise for much bigger machines, considering the snarly little leaf-blower noises and heavy smoke dripping out of the pipes.

1994 Honda NSR250 Rothman’s Edition for sale on eBay

1994 Honda NSR250 Rothmans R Side

If you’re not familiar with the Rothman’s name, they were a premium tobacco manufacturer that sponsored Honda’s GP motorcycle racing efforts between 1985 and 1993. Their stable of brands also included Players and Dunhill, two other brands famous for their motorsports connections.

This is a very slick little machine, but presents a serious problem for someone like me. It’s way too nice to beat up on the track, and without a title there’s not much chance of you using it on the street, unless you live in a state with a very permissive DMV. So this one looks to be a collector’s item, forever doomed to sit in an office, garage, or museum, never to turn a wheel in anger…

1994 Honda NSR250 Rothmans tail nose

From the original eBay listing: 1994 Honda NSR250 Rothman’s Edition

The MC28 SP bikes represent the fifth generation of Honda 250 two-strokes.  They were significantly upgraded from the fourth generation MC21s throughout the bike. The memory card “key” is very slick, the bodywork also had been upgraded for sleeker aero dynamics, and better looks to match the all new single sided swingarm (PROARM).  While there were previous versions of the Rothman’s edition, the MC28 SP was the last, and only 1,500 were made. Finding a 1994 Rothmans MC28 SP is quite rare and expensive due to the limited numbers.  This is the real thing, not aftermarket bodywork on a plain 250.  Check the VIN as well as the official part label on the tail section in the photos.

Bike comes with a limited edition Rothman’s embroidered jacket; size 52 Euro.  It also comes with a 1994 NSR250SP Parts Manual (Original), Part # 11KV3RJ5 (in Japanese), code #; D 200.2005.01, 142 pages.  You can also see more information about NSRs and an English language service manual at nsr-world.com. 

1994 Honda NSR250 Rothmans Damper Detail

With no valid title, I’m curious as to how this picked up as many miles as it has. The laws regarding what constitutes “road legal” varies from state to state and who knows? Maybe you live in a state where this kind of thing might be doable. I’ve spent most of my life in New Jersey and California, and neither place has a very friendly DMV.

Honestly, I’d be tempted to buy this little dinger, put the beautiful original bodywork on the wall of my office, throw on some Airtech race plastics, put all the road equipment carefully in a box, and ride the living hell out of it.

1994 Honda NSR250 Rothmans for sale

When we first saw this Rothmans edition, SpeedWerks had recently completed a restoration on it in 2010. It’s back now on eBay and still looks incredibly fresh. Buy-it-now is set at a pretty reasonable $9000 considering it also wears that all important piece of California jewelry above the rear wheel with a 2015 stamp on it.

Springtime Smokers Continued in Nevada: Honda NSR250R MC28

Update 3.18.2014: 4thUP tells me this bike and the 6 others they had for sale have all been sold. Congratulations! -dc

Honda NSR250R MC28 For Sale

This is the next 2 stroke offering from 4thUP following their Rothmans bike last week. This example I believe is a 1994 model with these colors and has just under 7300 miles showing on the odometer. The plastics on this one are in nicer shape than the last one, though it does show noticeable wear on the front forks and other exposed bits. Again though, they are presenting this as a rider and not a museum piece that was stored in a living room. To my mind it’s too nice to make it a track only bike but not so nice that I’d be afraid to ride it and add to it’s patina.

Again I’d like to thank 4thUP for helping to support our site with a Featured Listing.

right-fairing

excerpts from the seller’s website:

NSR250R MC28 imported straight from Japan.

It has 11,700 kilometers on the odometer which is only 7,300 miles! It feel’s like it too. Runs perfect. No leaks, no rattles, no anything really.

All lights and electronics are in proper working order.

Comes with the factory Honda card and little key hidden in the corner.

After sitting for months between buying it in Japan and finally getting here in the US, it only required 3 kicks to get going. Started up perfect.

Motorcycle comes with a clean REAL US Title. Matching VIN numbers and everything.

It’s not flawless due to there being a small nick in the vinyl on the rear tail on the left side you can see in the picture.

All mechanicals are great and do not make any extra noises or anything. Very smooth. Oil injection works great. No radiator leaks, no carb leaks, no anything.

There are some light VERY light road scratches near the bottom of the right side fairing mostly on the N of the HONDA vinyl.

Wrench And Patience Not Included: Project 1993 Honda NSR 250 SE

nsr right

Who is good with puzzles?  I love a good project bike and this certainly looks like one.  If you think you will be pulling up to your local hangout wreaking of Motul by the end of the week, arrow out of this page.  If you don’t mind a twist here, a missing part there but the satisfaction of completing a project yourself; well then scroll on down.

nsr left

Maybe most importantly, the frame has a title.  That should provide some motivation to get it back together.

 

nsr parts 2nsr parts

If you are serious about this bike I’d make a new friend that knows his NSR’s and see if he can gauge what is missing (if anything).  I didn’t notice any chambers but the seller says it was a runner before being dismantled. 

 

Here is the story:

TWO STROKE  STREET LEGAL  TITLED  MC21 BIKE …..DISMANTLED FOR CLEANING FOR RESTORATION AND NOT PUT BACK TOGETHER AS I FOUND A COMPLETED BIKE ,,THIS IS A CHANCE YOU GET YOUR HANDS ON THE INCREASINGLY RARE HONDA NSR 250..OF WHICH THIS IS THE SPECIAL EDITION DRY CLUTCH MODEL…..SOLD AS IS ..FRAME STRAIGHT WITH SE REAR WHEEL, PMG111 COMPUTER ,STEEL BRAIDED BREAKLINES ,,BEET REARSETS.AND .WHATEVER PARTS ARE FOR THE BIKE I HAVE IVE TRIED TO PICTURE IF THERES ANYTHING ELSE I FIND ILL THROW THEM IN TOO ..BIKE WAS A RUNNER BEFORE IT WAS DISMANTLED .

 

nsr bodywork

I can’t tell if that is OEM bodywork or aftermarket but factor in the cost of paint if you don’t like black.  I’d factor in the cost of a total engine rebuild as well, since it is totally apart.  Consider it peace of mind.

 

nsr front

This one is all about price and patience.  Can you get it for the right price and do you have the patience to put it back together?
