The R$250 is already a fantastic bike, but this features my favorite paint scheme of the model – the 1 of 500 examples of the Loris Reggiani replicas. Here’s #265 of the bikes built to honor the first racer who won a Grand Prix with an Aprilia.
Riders of the time loved this bike as it provided incredible handling thanks to the light weight, Brembo brakes, banana swingarm, and high quality Showa forks and Sachs shock. The engine was a modified 249cc powerplant from a Suzuki RGV250 with two Mikuni 34mm flat slide carbs (original to the Suzuki) and Aprilia-designed ECU, expansion chambers, airbox, and barrels – all good for about 55 horsepower.
This example has 1,904 miles and it’s said to run and ride perfectly. It’s got a clear title in New York and it’s in pretty decent cosmetic shape with the exception of a crack in the windshield, a drop of white paint on the right fairing, and a bunch of scratches on the left rear tail.
