The Aprilia RS250 Cup is by far, the most race-oriented of the street-legal 250s sold in the US. Built from 1995-2002, it was designed to pay homage to Aprilia’s success in the 250 GP championships. Powered by a modified Suzuki 250cc originally designed by Rotax, Aprilia made some of their own changes and made one of the most desirable 250’s …
Here’s an unexpected platform to go land speed racing with – a Honda S65!
Jonathan Rea recently made history by winning his 100th World Superbike Race – making him the first person to win 100 races in a single class of FIM road racing. You might not be as fast as him, but now you can ride his bike, as he’s selling his practice ride on eBay.
This classic racer features a ESO (which became part of Jawa in 1964) 500 in a Seeley frame with Ceriani forks and a fair number of other period race goodies.
Called the Yamando, this hybrid features a Yamaha XS650 motor (bored out to 750) in a Norton Commando frame and it’s a multiple-time winner in the Canadian vintage road racing P2 Heavyweight class.
Andrea Dovizioso started off strong in the 2018 MotoGP season on his Ducati Desmosedici GP18, winning the season opener in Qatar. He’d end up winning four races that year, finishing second to Marc Marquez for the second year in a row.

The logo of “Geriatric Racing” on the front fender is worth a chuckle, but this land speed RD350 will hopefully make you smile when you’re riding it, too.
The seller of this Ninja says that he spent over $10,000 building it, but it’s spent the last year on a battery tender in storage due to COVID so he’ll take a quarter of the build cost to let it go to a new home.
With an asking price of $1,500, this might be the cheapest way to get yourself a land speed racer that’s set multiple records! This 175cc salt racer set records in A (Special Construction) groups: APS-PG, APS-PF, A-PG, A-PF.
As the seller puts it, “if you’ve ever wanted to feel like Kenny Roberts or just scare the hell out of yourself, this may be the best way to do so! Here is a rare opportunity to own one of the most notorious models in motorcycle history!“
Originally raced by Deano Swims, this GSX-R was rebuilt by Erv Kollek and Racing Sport Services to compete at Phillip Island.

Now if …

It was a solid mid-sized motorcycle with a love it or …
