Be Like Max – 1996 Aprilia RS250 Chesterfield Edition

In Italy, Sport by AbhiLeave a Comment

If you’ve had your heart set on a Aprilia RS250, some think it doesn’t get better than the Max Biaggi replica Chesterfield Edition. One of the best-handling bikes ever made, Aprilia worked their chassis magic around a reworked engine from a Suzuki RGV250. It produced a nutty 69 horsepower from a 250cc 2-stroke engine, and redlines at 12,000rpm (which is …

In Italy, Sport by Abhi1 Comment

From a visceral standpoint, I believe the Monster has become worse with every generation (kind of like the new Mini Coopers, but that’s a story for another day). With that said, the new Ducati Monster 1100 S is still a fun bike that’s …

In Dual-Sport, Italy by Abhi4 Comments

Post-Listing Update: This Elefant got no love at the opening bid. The Cagiva Elefant is an interesting odd-ball – an Italian dual-sport with the heart of a Ducati. Available with a 900cc or 650cc engine, this is definitely the most unique option compared to the KLR, DRZ, and XL/XR options available from Japan.
