Honda did not officially sell the NS250R in the United States, though a few have been imported through the gray market over the years. What you almost never see is the naked variant, the NS250F. Here’s one in British Columbia if you feel like bring it across the border yourself.
Both bikes featured a 90 degree V-Twin that produced 45 horsepower in a package that weighed just 355 pounds. The F had a steel frame (the R got an aluminum one), both both bikes featured ATAC (Auto-Controlled Torque Amplification Chamber), air-assisted forks, TRAC (Torque Reaction Anti-Drive Control), Pro-Link rear suspension, and more.
The seller of this example has owned it for almost 15 years, but “due to a recent knee injury [he] can’t sit on it anymore and was hoping someone else would appreciate it’s [sic] timeless beauty and ridiculous power to weight ratio.” It’s got about 6,400 miles, and it’s the first one of these I’ve featured for sale.
