Suzuki RGV250 (1987 - 1997)

The Suzuki RGV250 was first introduced back in 1987 and since then, it has been considered one of the most exciting sport bikes ever made. It was the closest thing you could get to a Grand Prix bike.

Having a two-stroke engine, the RGV250 offers a completely different riding experience compared to modern sport bikes. It is extremely agile with a handling that is out of this world. Thanks to its low weight and high power output, the bike is able to reach speeds of up to 125mph. On top of that, it is surprisingly reliable if maintained properly.
