Gray Matter: 1993 Honda NSR 250 SE

NSR250SE_1

When it comes to gray market two strokes, the Honda NSR models dominate the landscape. They are far and away the most populous (if not the most popular) of the imported smokers in the United States. Sure, there are competing models from other manufacturers that are highly sought after (RG, RGV, RZ, RZV), but Honda seems to be winning the numbers game. Which brings us to this beautiful NSR250 SE model. Read on fellow enthusiasts, as this seller knows the right way to sell a bike: detailed pictures, good descriptions, and a willingness to point out minor blemishes.

From the seller:
The history for this motorcycle isn’t very long. It was imported by an individual roughly 15 years ago. Within about a year of this happening it was sold to another individual who used the motorcycle for amateur racing. He raced the motorcycle for I believe 2 or 3 seasons. After that it was stored in a heated garage since last year when I purchased it.

The motorcycle has a street legal Michigan title with the correct make and 11 digit vin. However, it does NOT have the correct year. It’s listed as a 1988 instead of a 1993. If this bothers you then please do not bid on the auction.

This bike is far from stock. It is an imported, ex-racer that has gone through a transformation, restored to former glory and well beyond. This is a bike that practically begs to be ridden; zero mile collectors please look elsewhere. Somehow this is the kind of smoker that appeals to me most. Yes, I like the collector value of the stock models (history does have some appeal, after all), but something like this was made (and modified) to be ridden. The seller has posted a lot of great pictures, and provided a ton of detail on the history and current state of the bike. This is a no reserve auction with the current bid at a paltry 5,600 (!). Check it out here, and then dream of getting it on the pipe as you shriek through the canyons. You know you want to.

Weekend Auction Updates: OW01, RZ350, NS400R, MC21, 999R

Yamaha OW01 FZR750R for sale

The Automania OW01 is back on eBay. This one has been relisted twice since we first posted it and failed to sell with a high bid of $26,500 on the last auction. This time it wears a $28k buy-it-now, which is $2k less than the listing price on their website.


Yamaha RZ350 for sale

This RZ350 is one of our Featured Listings, which failed to sell in it’s first auction with a high bid of $5800. The current bid is $5100 with about 5 days remaining.


Honda NS400R for sale

We first noticed this Honda NS400R on eBay in February and it’s been relisted a few times but no takers at $6500 no reserve, which frankly surprises me. Here is the original post.


Honda NSR250 MC21 for sale

Speaking of surprises, this NSR250R MC21 we posted on Thursday has since had a buy-it-now added of $8500, which seems strong to me. Current high bid is $4100 with 3 days remaining.


2005 Ducati 999R for sale

Last but not least, this 2005 Ducati 999R was posted in our classifieds and is now on eBay for the same price of $17800.

1995 Honda NSR250 For Sale

Like many of you, I’m a sucker for race replica paint jobs and the Rothmans livery has to be one of the best on any machine. It happens to look awesome on this NSR too. But you get a choice here as it also has Repsol bodywork included in the package as well.

In doing my research on this one, I stumbled on to this archived post from Doug in 2011. It has to be the same bike right? Black wheels, both sets of bodywork, both key cards, Tyga exhaust, wave rotors… And to be honest, Doug is posing the same questions I was wanting answers for as well. Hopefully those of you with NSR expertise can fetter out the details in the comments below. Thanks in advance!

from the seller:

1995 Honda NSR 250R SP MC28 model – this is a 1of a kind, very rare excellent shape 2 stroke 250 – like the MOTO GP 250’s. Bike runs great street legal and a clean title. 2 complete sets of farrings, one is Rothmans the other is Repsol, 2 fuel tanks, Taga pipes, tires are in excellent shape. I also have the stock credit card key and the HRC Race credit card key. If you are not familiar with the credit card keys call me and I’ll explain it to you, as these are extremely rare also. Also included is part manuals, stock exhaust and miscellaneous parts. This is a rare find, especially in this condition

Grecian Formula: 1989 Honda NSR 250 MC18 in Greece

NSR250_1

If you are the type that believe that there are already enough NSR250s available in your neck of the woods, then you might want to disregard this one. Available in Greece, this NSR250 looks unique and promises to provide a completely different visual experience from what we normally see.

From the seller:
The bike is in excellent condition as you see at the pictures, every part installed is original from honda.

So what is a Campsa edition? Campsa was a state owned petrolium company in Spain that was dissolved; assets were turned over to another well-known name: Repsol. So think of this as a pre-Repsol edition NSR250. Check it out and let us know what you think!

Classic Track Tools: Honda NSR 250R (in the UK)

This 2-stroke classic found in the UK could be what you are looking for. Lightweight, focused, fast enough and with a great soundtrack, what more would you want for a day on your local track ? Whether it will be the fast Donnington, the great and twisty Anglesey or the ever fun Cadwell Park, it’s all down to you. I’d take it to the modern Rockingham, as I reckon that the wide tracks with lots of grip are best suited for two strokers. With this bike it’s all about keeping momentum and lean angles.

The current owner seems to have bought it under an impulse, as he has actually not had the chance to use it yet:

With a starting bid of just below 2000 £ and lots of people away for their summer holiday, you could be riding your next event with a bike that essentially it is made for the race tracks…economically. If finding spare parts might be your concern, you’d better jump onto a couple of forums on the web to check the situation, before the auction is over. Obviously owning a Honda NSR 250 won’t be as having a CBR 600 RR, but if you are a reader of RSBFS.com, I don’t even need to mention that.

Beautiful and Built: 1995 Honda NSR250 MC28 in Florida

1995 Honda NSR250 MC28 For Sale

Here’s a sweet looking Honda NSR250 build that has recently been completed. The list of upgrades is extensive and thoughtful, includes lots of spares, and the seller is up front that it’s not originally a Repsol or SP. But the bad news is that it is being sold with a bill of sale only and is currently titled in Japan. Make sure you have your ducks in a row before trying to ride on the street. As such it will be interesting to see where the reserve is on this fine looking piece of two stroke fun.

Canadian Smoker: Honda NSR250R MC21

Toronto, Canada – 8,200mi — $5,743 BIN

MC21NSR_3 

The Honda NSR250 is one of my favorite bikes. Oh how I wish I could own one (minus all the DMV/insurance red-tape). With a light weight 2-stroke engine, full-twin spar aluminum frames, dual front discs, and race-inspired riding position, these bikes are the real deal for hooligan GP fun on the street.

MC21NSR_1

This bike comes to us from the two-stroke loving land of the north. The bike is claimed to be a 1994 model and an MC21. Though the photos indicate it is an MC21, the claimed year would put it at an MC28. Maybe things in Canada don’t coincide completely with the importing of these bikes. It is also claimed to be an SP (dry clutch, trick suspension, etc…), however this bodywork is not OEM Repsol livery.

From the seller:

HONDA NSR 250R MC-21 SP 13,200km 1994

250CC, Two Stroke, Dry clutch, Liquid Cooled, 90°V-Twin Cylinder, 60HP unrestricted power, Kick Start, 6 Speed Transmission, Gull Arm aluminum frame, Front and Rear Disk Breaks, racing handlebars and footpegs, Carbon fiber mufflers, Braided front and rear brake lines, 78cm Seat Height, 132Kg dry weight, 16Litre Fuel Capacity.Low insurance, Dunlop tires, new fork seals, new battery, Certified.

I wouldn’t consider this bike a collector by any means. It is too far from stock. Having said that, this could potentially be a kick-ass bike to ride. Which is exactly the reason we all love motorcycles. The joy comes from the ride. I will say that this bike could use some vetting in order to determine what exactly you are getting into. Feel like taking a look, check out the ad here and make the call.
