With two-stroke 250s now banished from Grand Prix racing, joining their roadster cousins in the dustbin of history, there has never been a more opportune moment to acquire one of these charismatic machines. Honda's NS250R v-twin roadster first appeared in the mid-1980s. Renamed NSR250R, the model went through several evolutions over the course of the next decade, though always restricted to 45bhp for its home market, and was never officially imported into the UK. All models used basically the same MC16E engine. Imported from Japan and first registered in 1995, this clean example of a most sought after model currently displays a total of 27,000 kilometres (approximately 16,700 miles) on the odometer and is presented in original condition. MoT'd to February 2016 and said to ride well, the machine comes with a V5C document and all MoTs and service receipts.
