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.”
Even 30 years later, it’s still held up well. Per MCN: “ It still looks good, sounds amazing and the smell of burning two-stroke oil will take you right back. Put simply, it’s still sensational.”
The second generation of the RGV (Racing Gamma V-Twin) debuted in 1991 as the VJ22. It featured 41mm upside down forks, 17″ rear wheel, a bump in power to 62 hp (restricted to 45 hp for JDM bikes), and some electronics including Multiple Digital Ignition System (MDIS), Automatic Exhaust Timing Control (AETC), and Suzuki Advanced Power Control (SAPC).
This example is VIN: VJ22A112855.
The odometer shows 22,001 kilometers (13,670 miles).
