Exceptional, original, unmodified example of an Aprilia RS250 Mk2 in Diablo Black/Red/Silver (colour scheme d.bl)
UK supplied new by Bonanza Motorcycles Ltd of London, registered May 2003 on an ’03’ plate, this is one of the last RS250s in later colours. Just 2 owners, and 3400 miles from new ensure that this bike presents a rare opportunity for any buyer that values mileage and provenance highly.
Everything is present, including the original stamped service book and owner’s manual, service bills/invoices, original bill of sale, old V5s, old MOTs and all keys (with number tag)
Recent service included new spark plugs, and power valve caps drained/cleaned and operation tested/adjusted.
Totally standard, unmodified bike (other than easily removed red rim tape) the rarity of this bike will be very clear to anyone with an interest in these machines.
The Aprilia RS250 was genuinely the last of a breed, the last of the ‘ring-a-ding’ screaming 2 strokes, or smokers as they are affectionately referred to. A different riding experience with no low down power, torque or engine braking. The little motor needs to be between 8000-11000rpm, but when it is, with the power valves fully open, it will sing in a way no 4 stroke ever will. Just fabulous, and 55bhp from 249cc will never feel so quick, willing and able.
This particular bike is an absolute joy to ride, just perfect in every way, and far too good to be bought for general use, but would of course suit a collector, and would serve wonderfully for high days and holidays. Very rare to find a late RS250 with such mileage and ownership provenance. We have owned the bike personally for a number of years. New MOT provided at point of sale
