A date with ZZ-R250

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

Your used bike fea­ture on the ZZ-R250 stated that it was only sold from 2002-2003. I bought one brand new in 1990 when I was 18. In fact, I was ap­par­ently the first per­son in the UK to reg­is­ter one. I bought it to re­place my un­re­li­able RD350YPVS. When I saw the first ZZ-R600 I fell in love but knew I would never be able to af­ford to in­sure one, so it was a no-brainer to go for the 250. Per­for­mance-wise the 250 was ac­tu­ally pretty quick but you did have to wring its neck to get the best out of it… it was no YPVS, but at least I knew it would be re­li­able and it looked cool for the era. Stu Good­son, email Used bike ex­pert Neil Mur­ray says: “Well, I’m damned. It must have been a grey im­port, be­cause I’m quite cer­tain we didn’t get them un­til much later. We had the GPX. Look­ing around sug­gests that it might have come from Oz or some­where.”
