Additional photos of this 1992 Honda NSR250R are available here for your perusal.

In the mid-to-late 1980s, the small-displacement race replica market in Japan was booming. Legions of bright-eyed young riders were lining up to fork over their hard-earned yen for competition-derived road-legal runners like Yamaha’s TZR250, Kawasaki’s KR-1, and Suzuki’s RGV250. Manufacturers on the island were battling it out on the race track and in showrooms in an ongoing arms race to produce the most trick race bike for the streets. In 1985, Honda launched the NS250R MC11, laying the foundation for its line of quarter-liter oil-burners that followed.

The NS featured a box-section aluminum frame and swingarm, disc brakes, full GP-style bodywork inspired by Honda’s RS250R factory race bike, Honda’s Astralight rims, and a liquid-cooled, 249cc, 90-degree V-Twin engine, two-stroke engine that made 45 hp (at 9,500 rpm) and utilized the ATAC (automatically-controlled torque amplification chamber) power-valve system. Constant competition led to quick improvements in the model line, leading to the MC21 generation that was unveiled in 1990. Timing of the RC Valves were now controlled by a PGM-III ECU, it featured the iconic Gull-Arm swingarm, close-ratio gearbox, and smaller wheel diameters (18″ to 17″).

This example is VIN: MC211018075. The seller acquired it from a private party five years ago.

During his ownership, the seller has not ridden this bike at all. The odometer shows 11,215 kilometers (6,968 miles).

This bike came to me as a frame with a rebuilt engine in it, the rest was in boxes. I slowly rebuilt everything to make it as safe and reliable as possible, I used the factory manual to torque everything to spec and make the necessary adjustments.”

“It has a rebuilt engine, thoroughly cleaned and synced carburetors, rebuilt calipers, new brake pads, new chain and sprockets, rebuilt front end, water wetter and distilled water coolant, Motul gearbox oil, Bel-Ray H1-R two-stroke oil.”

“Once I had the bike complete and ready for a test ride I was warming it up on my lift, as I was pulling it off the bike turned off. I was thoroughly confused since it would fire up first kick for months. I found it had no spark, I tested every component in the ignition and charging system according to the manual and everything checked out, the only thing it could possibly be is the ECU. After years of tinkering with this bike I can no longer deal with it, replace the ECU and it’ll be a solid bike for the street or track.”

Modifications:
Wire splice to de-restrict for full power.

Chinese bodywork, LED turn signals and relay.

Tyga dual exhaust with aftermarket chambers.

Silicone coolant hoses.

Steel braided brake lines front and rear.

The sale includes a dry clutch conversion, an additional set of plastics in rough shape, and various spare parts.


Cosmetic Blemishes:
The seller notes “a few small scratches on the plastics, some corrosion on the forks and mufflers.



It is riding on Michelin Power RS tires.
