Nowadays you can get all kinds of 250-400cc entry level sportbikes in the US, but back in 1990 the entire market was basically the Kawasaki Ninja 250 and the Honda VTR250. In Honda’s home market of Japan, things were a bit more exciting. Building off of the success that Honda saw with the original ‘Babyblade’ 250R, the 250RR was the successor to the venerable featherweight motorcycle, offering a robust and feature-packed platform for any motorcycle enthusiast from the touge to the track.

With a inline-four engine and a weight of just 350 lbs., the 250RR was good for roughly 45 horsepower at an astounding 19,000 RPM redline. With gear-driven cams and a direct air intake system, the MC22 was a swift package that offered substantial suspension to support the riding style of this quarter-liter sportbike. With adjustable preload in the front and a mono-shock out back, the 250RR was at home when at lean.

This example is VIN: MC221101359. It came to Iconic as an import from Japan; prior history is not known.

The odometer shows 43,261 kilometers (26,881 miles).

In preparation for the listing, the seller had us perform a safety inspection, clean and synchronize the carburetors, replace intake manifolds, and replace spark plugs.
