In 1994, Aprilia released the RS250, a road-legal replica version of their RSV250. Powering the RS was a modified version of the liquid-cooled, 249cc, two-stroke, 90-degree V-Twin from Suzuki’s RGV250. The RS’s engine utilized the Suzuki’s 34mm Mikuni flat slide carbs, though it featured its own Aprilia-designed expansion chambers, barrels, air-box, and exhaust system, a revised ignition and ECU, and a higher compression ratio. Building on the already well-designed single-crank V-Twin developed by Suzuki, the changes made in Noale afforded the RS more mid-range power. What really made the RS250 special, however, was its chassis design. Derived from the bikes built by Aprilia’s factory race program, the RS250 used a polished alloy twin-spar frame paired with an adjustable magnesium alloy banana swing-arm. The trick alloy frame was fitted with 41mm inverted Marzocchi forks and a Sachs monoshock in the back — both adjustable for preload and rebound damping.

The RS250 remained in production, receiving various updates and tweaks – including a significant revamp in ’98 — before Aprilia pulled the plug on the 250 in 2004. Despite a decade-and-a-half having passed since the last RS left the factory, the track-oriented V-Twins are regarded incredibly highly today.

This example is VIN: ZD4LDA500XS0117. The seller is a dealership who acquired this bike as a trade-in – the previous owner was the original owner, who owned it since 1999.

The odometer shows 450 miles.

Modifications:
The seller states that this bike is completely stock.

Cosmetic Blemishes:
There are several small marks in the bodywork, the most severe of which is rash on the right side of the tank, frame, and exhaust. Please view all photos in the album up top.





The seller states that there are no known mechanical issues. They (KFG Motorsports) just completed a service including fresh fluids and a “dyno health check”. Results of the dyno run showed 60 horsepower at the rear wheel. Click here for a PDF of the dyno run.

The sale includes “a huge box of spare OEM parts, manuals, stand, display carpet, and race bodywork.”

Currently located in Auburn, Washington, this Aprilia is offered on a clean Washington title with a copy of the original MSO. Have any RS250 stories or questions about this listing? Let us know in the “Comments” tab!
