Gray Market Bikes

How about a little two-wheeled goodness for the Online Classifieds Car Show?! These bikes were never officially imported to the US (at least not for street use) and as such, are termed ‘Gray Market’.

I’ve always had a soft spot for gray market two strokes and always wanted a Aprilia RS250, but an NSR 250 would be a close second. And at $6300, with a title, not a bad deal!

NSR 250 details:

  • 249cc Liquid Cooled V-twin
  • Single-sided Swingarm
  • Kick Started (probably to save weight)
  • Homologated for 250 GP racing

Honda RC30 details:

  • Homologated for superbike racing, winning back to back World Superbike titles in 88 and 89
  • 750cc V-4
  • Single-sided Swingarm

A stunning motorcycle and a rare opportunity to snag one in this country. Original asking price was over $20k new, and this one is up for $21k! Pretty steep, but according to this article from 2003 at Motorcycleusa.com on the RC30, a pretty typical price.
