1996 Honda RS125 NX4 In California At A Very Good Price!

This NX4 RS125 comes with a ton of spares and is priced very nicely!  Located in San Diego, California is a 1996 Honda RS125 finished in baby blue.  The seller states that this bike has a completely rebuilt, fresh, motor; new tires, new chain and many extras.  Looking at the photos this bike has an extensive spares package of consumables.  The photo shows five HRC pistons–if they’re all full and new–which, at $246 a piece retail, is $1,230 in spare pistons alone.  The photo also looks to show additional barrels, new and used, chains, sprockets, manuals and other assorted pieces.  Do the math, we’ve seen the bottom of early NX4’s at around $3,500-4,000 dollars for a bike in good condition with a decent spares package;  This bike is only priced at $3,500 and comes with over $1,000 in spare piston kits alone.  The ’96MY bikes are the last of the leaded head bikes but, the RS125 remained largely unchanged–there are some small changes–from ’95-present.  I honestly wish I wasn’t writing this post and were instead going to pick it up or calling for a shipper.  If you can live with baby blue or, can decently wield a spray gun have a look at this RS125 on Craigslist here.

Titled 2009 Aprilia RS125 (154cc kit) In CA

 Titled 2009 Aprilia RS125 (154cc kit) In CA

A nice Aprilia RS125 has appeared on Craigslist in the Bay Area.  Even though these can be had through an Aprilia dealer, one with a title is rare.  The owner has even added a few cc’s for you. 

From the Craigslist ad:

This is a like new Aprilia RS 125 with a 154cc kit and many extras. Euro wiring harness, big carb, V-force reeds, etc… Current California street registered

I have to admit, that thing sounds healthy for a 150cc bike.  The asking price, $7500, is pretty steep.  That is well into the realm of  250 RGV’s, NSR’s and RS Aprilias.  On the other hand you are getting a almost new bike with some nice mods and that all important piece of paper.  Check it out here.

1996 Honda RS125

1996 Honda RS125 racer

Okay so you don’t have a spare $6,000 lying around for the perfect 98 RS125 that I posted yesterday. How about $4,000 for another great looking RS125? This one gets two thumbs up and extra bonus points for an awesome paint job. Anthony “Go Show” Gobert would be proud of this tribute bike as it is painted to match his Suomy helmet design. Shouldn’t this bike’s number plate read ‘420’ instead of 944? Hmmm…. oh never mind…

Have a look:

Pretty sweet eh? Although this one doesn’t have an extensive spares package it has plenty to get you going. It is being sold with the following spares:

Wheels/Rains/Warmers, Stands, A kit body/Airbox, Dbl Bubble Screen, Dunlops w/ one wknd. and more. I will also include original bodywork and a custom folding spare wheel stand (pit stand)

This one was listed for $4,500 a little more than 2 weeks ago and has since been lowered to $4,000.00. Don’t delay if you’re on the hunt for a sweet track bike. It looks like the owner is a detailer so you have to assume it’s squeeky clean. Owner states that he needs it gone to help pay for a new house so if you can help a brother out, jump on over to the USGPRU classifieds and give him a shout.

Since we’re talking ‘Go Show’ I figured I would complete it with a video tribute to him. Here he is on board the Muzzy ZX7rr battling with John Kocinski on the Ducati.

1998 Honda RS125 racer

1998 Honda RS125 with 0 miles since rebuild.

Located somewhere in New Jersey and waiting to be parked in your garage and all I can say is clean, clean, clean! It literally looks like it is 1998 and has just been taken out of the crate.. I did see Hot Tub Time Machine last night so maybe I’ve been taken back and I am looking at a new one 8) Seriously, take a look at the pictures and judge for yourself.

Engine was completely rebuilt with an RSC engine kit and low friction crank bearings. Currently, the engine is set up with a VHM head, Fresh cylinder with detonation ring, HRC detonation counter, HARC Pro Pipe, Talon basket with titanium bolts, Battle Factory quick shifter and CN carbon fiber air box.

Front fork was built by Thermosman and has fresh fluid, rear shock was recently rebuilt and has two weekends on it. Currently the suspension is set up for a 165-pound rider.

Frame was completely gone over and all new bearings were installed: swingarm, shock linkage and steering stem.
Bike has a Brembo front master cyl, braking front rotor and new SBS pads. Bike also has a talon sprocket carrier, new chain and Hjelm rearsets. Bodywork was just painted as well.

Let’s see:

rebuilt engine – check
quick shifter – check
rebuilt fork and shock – check
new brake pads – check
new chain – check
fresh paint – check

LETS GO RACING! Oh wait, I know it’s a two stroke and you can’t go racing with out spares right? He’s got you covered…

Here are the spares:
Fresh Replated Cylinder
One new piston kit
Stock head
Stock pipe
Stock rearsets
Various VHM inserts
Stock clutch basket
Spare shock
Sub Frame
Stock springs (front and rear)
Cush drive
Marchesini rims with front disk (front rim is damaged at bearing mount)
spares kit (gaskets, seals, bearings, o-rings, bolts, levers etc.)
Full Jet kit
1999 upper and lower bodywork
Ricks starting tool
Various specialty tools

From the looks of it all you need is a helmet and leather suit. Obviously, a bike this clean doesn’t come cheap, but at a $6,000 asking price I’d say it’s “fair” when you consider everything is new, it’s extremely, extremely clean and you get a ton of spares. I used to love going to the track and waiting for the clock to hit 8 so I could smell spent 2 stroke exhaust. Ahhh there’s nothing like the smell of 2 strokes in the morning.

Have an interest in 2 stroke racing? Looking for a kick ass track day bike with an awesome spares package?
You owe it to yourself to give this one a look.

It’s listed for sale on the USGPRU classifieds and you can contact the owner here

2009 Aprilia RS125 Track Bike in Washington State

2009 Aprilia RS125 Track Bike

This thing has fun written all over it.  How can you possibly go wrong with a little two stroke for the track?  This bike is for sale through a dealer so I wouldn’t even bother asking about making it street legal.   As most of you probably know this bike is officially imported through Aprilia USA as a track bike.  It was redesigned in 2009 and all RS125’s here in the US get the race replica paint scheme.  Some like it: some don’t ( I could live without the number 1).  If you are wondering;  it pumps out roughly 28-30hp in stock trim.  That relatively low hp figure leads to all the fun though.  I was trolling around the Aprilia Forum and it looks like people are having some serious fun with these things.  There looks to be plenty of options with pipes and carbs for the beginners and porting and squish fun for the more advanced.

From the Craigslist ad:

2009 Aprilia RS 125– 2 stroke for sale.
The bike is a track bike only and not able to be street legal in Washington.
Price is $4990 plus tax lic and doc and factory financing is available
Trade ins are welcome

I’m not sure on the price considering this is a track bike.  A lot of older Honda RS125’s can be had for quite a bit less including some spares.  If you are an Aprilia fan and have been looking for one of these maybe this is a decent deal considering they take trade ins and can finance.   Check it out here on Seattle Craigslist.

Moriwaki MD250H single cylinder race bike for sale

Brand new limited production Moriwaki MD250H single cylinder race bike for sale on ebay.

Now we’ve seen our share of special bikes for sale here around RSBFS, but thanks to a tip off from our reader Mike, here’s a truly unique oppourtunity – :

This is a New Honda Moriwaki being offered for sale at our Honda Powerstore. This is a Limited Production Full Race Ready Motorcycle. Being a Race Bike, this bike cannot be financed by conventional means, so you will have to have your financing or cash ready. We can paint this bike any color that you want, at an additional cost.

Last year, American Honda and Moriwaki Engineering had announced the availability of a limited number of MD250H racebikes. The bike was meant for young racers who wanted to take part in the USGPRU roadracing series.

An exquisite piece of engineering, the Mroiwaki MD250H is fitted with a four-stroke, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder 249cc engine from Honda. Also used in the Honda CRF250X, this engine is specially tuned and fettled by Moriwaki, for the MD250H.

The MD250H is a serious bit of equipment, a proper small-bore GP bike. Custom fabricated twin-spar aluminum chassis, radial-mount calipers for the front disc brake, USD fork, Honda’s Pro-Link rear suspension, lightweight wheels, race-spec tyres and works-style welded aluminum fuel tank – the MD250H is pure racer all the way.

Who’s Moriwaki? They are the legendary Japanese tuning firm which is to Honda what Yoshimura is to Suzuki, and probably best know for its Honda V5-powered MD211VF MotoGP bike which campaigned in 2004.  For more info on the MD250H and the related race series, click HERE and HERE.

The power output of the CRF250X lump won’t win any drag races, but housed in the tiny 125 GP size chassis, the whole package makes for a super light bike with brilliant handling and decent power to weight ratio – not to mention cheaper running costs then a highly strung 2 stroke engine.  I bet this thing would be more fun around the track than wringing the neck off a 600cc super sport!

Lastly, we have a 1999 Aprilia RS250 race/track bike that I don’t believe we’ve seen before.  The seller states that this is a one owner bike with 1,834 miles.  The seller states that there is some very minor wear and tear on the bike.  The asking price is $4,500; and is located in Miami, Florida.  See the bike on Craigslist here.

2009 Aprilia RS125 Titled & Registered

This is a street legal 2009 Aprilia RS125 located in Tucson, Arizona and priced very nicely.  The 2009 Aprilia RS125 was the ultimate two stroke tease; as always, available in Europe as a street bike, the latest in Aprilia two stroke and frame technology, and Aprilia then had the audacity to bring them to U.S. showrooms for us to drool over!  These come to the U.S. with a VIN plate that clearly says for off-road use only, and a title that reiterates that fact however, physically, they are only missing the European wiring harness,  license plate mount, front & rear turn signals, and I believe headlight bulbs to be operationally street legal.  The wiring harness and the title have always been the toughest things to get.  When they were first imported in early 2009 the Euro harnesses were essentially unobtainable unless you knew someone who could purchase and ship one from Europe/U.K.  now they are easily available from AF1 Racing and other sites for around $480.  As everyone knows though, it’s the title that is the problem.  This brings us to this bike, it has the harness–however in the photos it isn’t shown to have turn signals–and was titled and registered from new!  The asking price is $5,000; making it appear that these bikes have begun to depreciate as the street titled ones used to carry an understandable premium over the stock bikes, the price of this current bike is under the original MSRP of the off-road only bikes.  The local Aprilia/Ducati still has–from what I saw–three of these in stock so dealers obviously aren’t sold out of these.  So, to sum it all up, the 2009 RS125s appear to finally be depreciating–including the registered ones–so if you’d like a discounted, street legal, Aprilia RS125; see the ad on here.  Also, see the bike on WERA here.
