KR250A for sale on ebay

Post by the KR kid » Wed Jan 30, 2019 12:33 pm

KR250A for sale on ebay from Fastline in Preston for £6499!!! :shock:

It's got the wrong front mudguard, and the bodywork has been butchered at some point ( possibly after being dropped?), anti-dive has been removed, as well as few other points. I'd want a perfect bike for that price!

I didnt think they would get £6000 for a RG250 a few weeks back but it sold so maybe this will as well... I may well get them to sell my KR1 when the time comes!

I reckon he fancies himself as a fibreglass wizard. He's carved the sidepanel away, then moved on to the front mudguard and ruined that too. Finally he's lost the black surround for the taillight.

Worth about half what they're asking if you ask me.

Makes the other 2 on ebay look like a bargain, lol!

Also got wrong footrests, chainguard, bellypan bolts, the list goes on...

Fastline is up the road from me, some of his bikes stick for 12 to 18 months. He is always top dollar and has Dream Machine refresh his Japanese imports. Its a great place to window shop. He had a NR 750 the one with oval pistons. The screen alone was £1600. That was for sale fore ages at £75k then suddenly £120k bonkers.

2 of the 3 KR250A's on ebay have just been reduced in price, the original bike I posted here by £1200 to £5299! Seems they might be rare over here but no-one wants one, as they have all been on sale for quite a while now.

I dare say plenty of people would like one but not at any cost!

6K+ is RGV250 money (and much more choice..)and thats a bit of a no brainer over a KR250...?

Yes, prices vary a lot over here. It all depends on condition and how long they have stood. One of the original Huddersfield imports that sold at auction recently for £3600 has been recommissioned and back on for over £5k. It is pretty much factory original, so like most decent examples of rare JDM 250 strokers, they tend to be worth around 4.5.-5.5 if in good original condition, UK registered and properly recommissioned.

I've also looked at what KR250's fetch on the Japanese auction sites, and they are pretty low compared to other JDM 2 strokes, so I think they are also struggling to value them as the UK/Europe markets are largely unaware that they even exist, so the demand isn't there - yet... Whenever I take mine out, I get all sorts of mixed reactions with some people thinking its some sort of twin engined AR125 special.. I guess the more we get them out there, the more interest they will generate.
