Post Listing Update – this Aprilia did not meet reserve despite 21 bids up to $9,100.
5-3-2018 Update: Almost two years later, this basically-new RS250 is back up for sale – though the seller now calls it a 2003 model instead of a 2004. Find it still in Salinas, California with bidding up to $6,000 and the reserve not yet met
Post Listing Update: Despite 32 bids on eBay, this RS250 did not meet reserve at $10,000.
In 1998, Aprilia released an updated of the RS250 called the GP1. The main changes included new styling to make it look like Marco Melandri’s factory works bike, a fake ram-air intake, Showa front forks, and a few more cosmetic revisions. This example looks fantastic, especially thanks to the fact that it has all of zero miles.
This example is a variant that was only sold in Europe and Australia. It features the official team decals from Colin Edwards and Nori Haga, and it’s being offered by the original owner. He/she has just had the bike on display. It has been started before but it doesn’t have any mileage and every component is original. The seller says he/she has “huge amounts of dealer promotional material for the bike” – I assume that goes with the sale but it’s not explicitly made clear. This bike was on display at this year’s Quail Motorcycle Gathering and it won best European Two-Stroke at Motocarrera’s Two Stroke Extravaganza back in 2005.
