2000 Aprilia RS250

Located in Trenton, Michigan is a low mile (1,160), titled and registered, 200 Aprilia RS250.  The seller states that he converted the bike to be street legal, including the wiring harness and plastics–he does not mention if it carries a fifteen or seventeen digit VIN.  Seller states that the front calipers have been upgraded to units off of a Yamaha R1, Woodcraft rearsets, Ohlins forks, Ohlins rear shock and Lomas exhaust.  The seller also states that the tires have only been used on the street, but, they show some considerable heat–possibly take-offs, the bike has been on track, or the seller does run it that hard on the street.  The opening bid is $10,000 and already has one bidder.  See this very clean RS on eBay here.

2002 Aprilia RS250 S/N 0001

Located in Lafayette, Louisiana is supposedly Aprilia RS250 S/N 0001 in as new condition.  The price seems market fair at $7,595.  The seller doesn’t list very many specifics but if you’d like a new bike for display or use, this looks to be a zero mile bike with brand new with original tires–although the seller states it has never been serviced in six years.  See the ad on CycleTrader here.

1998 Aprilia RS250

Located in Coopersburg, Pennsylvania is a quite nice 1998 Aprilia RS250 with 23,336 miles (!).  It would less surprising if it was actually 23k kilometers, but, this is apparently a well used RS250; the seller (A dealer) claims to have recently done a full motor and transmission rebuild.  Scratches on left side from going down (not mentioned at speed or if just dropped) but not shown in pictures and a crack under the headlight are the only claimed defects.  This bike is registered with an opening bid of $6,500 and no reserve.  I’d be interested to see this start at a lower opening bid to see how the miles reflect on the selling price.  See the eBay ad here

EDIT: This bike sold with one bid for $6,500 on 07/01/2009.

If you’re interested in a track only Aprilia, there is a 1996 Aprilia RS125 in Gaithersburg, Maryland.  This RS is in track condition, with different colored plastics and scars.  The bike will need to be gone through as the motor isn’t running correctly.  The motor does have some modifications and comes with a partial spares package.  The buy it now is $4,500 with a $2,000 opening bid and a reserve.  Also, check out the sellers Ferrari Mondial convertible in the background.  See the eBay ad here

EDIT: This bike received ten bids to the amount of $3,400 but didn’t meet reserve on 07/01/2009.

1997 Aprilia RS125

Located in San Francisco, California is an unregistered 1997 Aprilia RS125.  The seller doesn’t state much other than how he was able get a plate for street use–not an advisable route.  However, this bike looks quite clean and worth looking into.  Bike is advertised at $4000.  See the Craigslist ad here.

1995 Aprilia RS250

Located in Los Angeles, California is a titled 1995 Aprilia RS250 with 6,755kms or 4,197 miles.  Bike is currently registered Non-Op in California which is used to prevent the build up of registration fees if a bike isn’t being used, this bike should be easy to register once transferred to a new owner but as always, check first.  The asking price of $7000 sounds fair based on recent ads.  See the Craigslist ad here.

Aprilia RS250 Challenge Bike For Sale with Title

It’s been rumored that the Challenge bikes were a bit easier to title than the gray market imports. Here’s one in Cali for $8k on Craigslist:

Aprilia RS250 Challenge Bike For SaleAprilia RS250 Challenge Bike For SaleAprilia RS250 Challenge Bike For Sale

quote from seller’s listing:

999/2000 Aprilia RS250 California Reg. Street legal two Stroke
Its true a street legal version of the RS250! VERY CLEAN BIKE only 4300 miles. Come and get one of the best handling street bikes on the road and scream down the streets turning everybody’s head like a top.
WILL CONSIDER REASONABLE OFFERS. CASH TALKS

1999 and up “Challenge” models, which means they share the common 1998+ specification, which includes the following (which would differ from pre 1998 bikes):
• Showa 41mm usd forks with compression and rebound damping adjustment as well as spring preload adjustment.
• Suzuki RGV250 Gamma engine
• Suspension designed for the longer shock
• easily accessed oil injection tank and coolant overflow tank
• 3.5″ x 17 front wheel, can fit 120/60 ~ 120/70 section tire
• 4.5″ x 17″ rear wheel, can fit 150~165 rear tire
• 60~65 hp
• Approximate 300 pound weight

We’ve listed lots of Aprilia’s on this blog and this one seem a touch on the high side. But it does only have 4300 miles and it boasts a street registration. Could be good for the right buyer.
