Some say there is no such thing as a bargain, and for sure in terms of collectible Japanese machines, prices still seem to be rising across the board. But there is value for money to be had, you just need to know where to look. From a wide-ranging list, we have chosen six bikes across the Japanese “big four” that are not just currently affordable but that are destined to rise even more in value making restoration a realistic goal.
First on our list is the seemingly humble CB250RS. This unassuming 250cc single shared road space with the likes of the Yamaha 250LC but it attracted a different type of rider. Simple in both looks and maintenance, the twin exhaust port engine shared much with the XL250S while styling was restrained yet contemporary. Wire-spoked wheels, alloy rims, and twin exhaust silencers created a feeling of symmetry combined with a light chassis for sprightly performance.
In an age dominated by modern motorcycles boasting cutting-edge technology and futuristic aesthetics, the Honda CB250RS stands as a testament to the enduring charm of classic bikes. With its timeless design, spirited performance, and accessibility the CB250RS is rapidly becoming a beloved icon in the world of motorcycling.
At CMS we have shelves full of spares for these bikes to help you keep them running or restore back to factory gate loveliness. Start your search now as these bikes may not be bargains for much longer!
