Description

Additional photos of this Suzuki RGV250 SP are available here for your perusal.

Introduced at the end of the 80s, the RGV250 was filled with design cues from Suzuki’s 250cc Gamma Grand Prix racer. When de-restricted, it produced over 60 horsepower to motivate just 282 pounds of dry weight. Visor Down called it “the purest and most race-bred two-stroke track tool ever to make it into a showroom.”

The VJ21 (first generation RGV250) an impressive machine with its V-Twin two stroke engine, Mikuni carbs, and alloy beam frame.

The SP (Sports Production) version took it one step further with a bump in power, close-ratio gearbox, and fully adjustable suspension with a remote reservoir for the rear shock.

This example is VIN: VJ21A108274. The seller acquired it three years ago from a private party who had imported it from Japan – the bike was imported to the US six years ago.

During his ownership, the seller has covered roughly 200 miles. The odometer shows 24,335 kilometers (15,121 miles).

Maintenance:
Fresh oil change and air filter and new tires with date codes of 4020 and 0821.

Modifications:
The previous owner started to restore it. He powdercoated the wheels and the subframe as well as the rear passenger pegs and other miscellaneous parts. The front forks were just rebuilt and powder coated.

Cosmetic Blemishes:
The seller notes that “the bike is 34 years old and has the original fairings. They are not perfect.
