Post Listing Update: This Exacta did not get any interest at the BIN of $4,500.
Though it was typically in the shadow of Yamaha’s TY250, the Suzuki Exacta RL250 was still a solid trials bike that’s now quite suitable for vintage competition. They’re relatively rare in the US as they were only imported in 1974 and 1975, and this example stands out as it was given a “cosmetic restoration”.
The main difference between the ’74/’75 models was the first year had an aluminum tank while the second year got a steel one. What both years shared in common was an issue with broken frames just above the swingarm pivot. 1,200 Exactas were sold in the US in that two year period. The 246cc single produced 18 horsepower and 16.6 pound feet of torque. Dry weight was 190 pounds, which was a little heavy compared to the competition. For more specifications, check out Suzuki Cycles.
This example features the rare factory light kit, and it’s been “polished, plated, and painted.” It looks fantastic thanks to the cosmetic work, though the seller has nothing to say about the mechanical condition besides saying that it’s got low hours.
