Additional photos of this Suzuki RM250 are available here for your perusal.
2005 marked the last time that a two-stroker won an AMA Supercross championship, and the feat was accomplished by Ricky Carmichael on a Team Makita Suzuki. To commemorate the feat, Suzuki announced a limited edition model for the following year.
Cosmetic changes included Team Makita Suzuki graphics, gold wheels, and a black seat – and the price was an extra $300. But the base bike was excellent in its own right. MXA said “don’t write that check for a new four-stroke until you’ve thrown a leg over this 250cc two-stroke. It’s like no other bike on the planet.”
This example (VIN: JS1RJ18C262103534) has never been titled or even had any oil in it.
It’s been modified to pay even better tribute to the bike that Ricky won the championship with thanks to a Pro Circuit Works Pipe and Pro Circuit R-304 Stainless Shorty muffler.
The sale also includes:
Signed Ricky Carmichael retail jersey.
Yoshimura Suzuki/Matrix Concepts stand and floor mat.
Poster commemorating Ricky’s ’05 and ’06 championships.
On top of all of that, Ricky has signed the front number plate.
