Located in Tallahassee, Florida is a track-only 1993 Honda NSR250R. This bike isn’t titled or registered however it looks to be a very clean track bike with recent service and a good spares package. The recent work listed is:
-New fork seals and fluid (wipers/dust)
-Carbs cleaned and soaked
-Replaced reeds (Boyesen)
-Fresh Paint job
The MC21 NSRs are pretty dependable without an ignition card but don’t support the sexy single sided swing-arm of the MC28. Some information on MC21s:
Unveiled in late 1989 as the new 1990 model, the MC21 took the 2-stroke world by storm, and completely re-wrote the rule book on how a 250 2-stroke should be built. The craftsmanship was superb, and the new features were groundbreaking!
The MC21 now utilised the PGMIII ECU taken from the legendry RC30 superbike (only now being utilised in GP250 by official HRC NSR’s incidentally!!), and coupled to throttle position and gear position sensors, controls both the timing of the RC Valves, air correctors and ignition advance to give outstanding low end tractability. The PGM-III features a true 3D ignition and a different map for each cylinder.
In keeping with their racer for the road image, the famous Gull-Arm rear swingarm was copied from the RS250 of Luca Cadalora, as was the frame design. Even the mounting point for a steering damper was kept in place! The body-styling was based on the 1988 and 1989 RS250’s, with just a few basic concessions like lights and a rear pillion seat!! The rear wheel diameter was decreased from 18″ to 17″ and widened to 4.5″ to run the latest tyre profiles and compounds.
This looks to be a clean NSR that would be a blast on the track. The asking price is $3,800; a decent price considering there are untitled, un-race-prepped bikes going for more. See it on the WERA forum here. See the dealer listing here.
