Moriwaki is a Japanese engineering firm which produces nearly everything for bikes. With lots of race experience, they’ve become a trusted name in Japan and amongst a certain few here in the states. Using the Honda RS125 as a base, and their own proprietary frame, swingarm, and much more, they created the Moriwaki MD250H as a ready to go road racer for youngsters and smaller adults.
Introduced in 2008, it was initially brought to the states in very small numbers, specifically for teens competing in USGPRU spec racing. The next year, Moriwaki sold it to the public at a not-cheap $11,699-12,699 through certain Honda dealerships. But your money got you a well-spec’d bike. Fully adjustable Showa suspension from the RS125 racebike, the 250cc engine from the Honda CRF250X, Moriwaki exhaust, Keihin FCR flat-slide carb, and Dunlop slicks. With just 190 pounds of weight to carry, this bike is a very visceral thrill all the way up to the 13,000 rpm redline. Want to learn more? Check out the Moriwaki website for specs on the MD250H.
This example is being offered by a seller who pilfered my description of the bike from a previous Moriwaki post, so I’ll act flattered. It’s got 6 hours on the engine hour meter, and the same number applies to an additional rebuilt motor that’s included in the sale. The bike is also equipped with a Vapor dash, RMR suspension front and rear, a spare set of plastics, and a lot of spare parts that will be perfect for the aspiring racer in your family.
Find this Moriwaki for sale in Dixon, California for $11,000 here on Craigslist.
