It does not seem rare on this site, but I think they only sold a few hundred a year in the US.

Had an 01


And an 07



I dont think that many 2010's ever made it from the factory before it closed up.
I think only 13 of these made it out.



There are very few Concours 1000/sidecar rigs.
I think this may be the only Hannigan one.



I dont know how many of these there are in the US.
Even less with a 70cc kit.

A 1982 Suzuki GS 650 E (black with red & orange pinstripes) was my college bike ! (1987,'88) - bought it crashed from my roomate Calamity Steve for a 12-pack and had it operational again in about a week for fifty bucks.

Love to see a picture of one again - nothing spectacular, but a decent UJM if ever there was one.

Rare? Well I did just pick up a yamaha XZ550. Not unknown but certainly not common either. I think my rarest dike would have to be my 83 Ossa 250 TE. Only 1050 produced over 3 years and I can't believe many made it across to the US.

Rs250



I had one like this and, of course, am very sad I sold it (so it goes). The good news is that the guy bought it to take to Bonneville for a run at setting a speed record which I much prefer to having him polish it in his garage. Not sure if he ever got the record, but it doesn't really matter as long as he took his shot.

I'll follow that Biaggi Chesterfield -'98 rs250, 17 digit & titled. It'll end up hung on a wall before I ever part with it.

I had a 2000 cup RS250 that I used for a few seasons as a track bike, and I now have my Late Brother's 1998 machine.... what are they like on the street? They are fun and nimble on the track, but fall a bit short of my '95 RS250 honda- which is not terribly surprising given the Aprilia is a street derived "Race replica" and spots the GP2 machine a good 60 pounds and probably 20 HP.





What is most surprising is how GOOD the RS Aprilia is when compared to the real race machinery- I still have my best ever lap on old #64, although I expect to drop that by a bit next season on the little Honda.

A load in the UK, few in the US :)

On the street it's as fun as anything else - small, light, feels like you are doing 150 when you are doing 80 :)

Wow, that is rare; never seen or even heard of one of them. So it's a 750 4stroke twin? And totally different from a stroked/bored out XS650.
I do recall Kawasaki make'in one in the late '70s.
