Description

Additional photos of this 1992 Suzuki RGV250 Lucky Strike 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.”

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: VJ22A120963. The seller obtained this bike as a project from an auction in Japan 8 years ago.

During his ownership, he has covered 10 miles. The odometer shows 17,711 kilometers (11,005 miles).

Maintenance:
As part of his work, the seller installed new fuel lines, new tires, a full fluid flush, and had the carbs jetted.

He notes that it was originally a Lucky Strike model but he had the bodywork repainted.

Modifications:
Aftermarket silencers.

Carbon fiber front fender, braided brake lines.

Aftermarket bar ends.

Coerce rear sets.

Cosmetic Blemishes: please see the album up top for all known cosmetic blemishes. Here is a selection:

The seller notes a dent in the left side of the swingarm.

Inside of the tank:

It is riding on Dunlop Sportmax GPR-300 tires with date codes of 0419 and 4719.

The sale includes two keys.
