Cover story is Suzuki’s early EIghties stroker, the RG250. Time seems to have forgotten the mid-sized RG. It sits between the more popular X7 and RGV 250s (and is somewhat overshadowed by its four-cylinder stablemate) but the RG250 was something of a jewel. Sporting an aluminium frame, deca-piston brake setup and race-style components. Today it’s tricky to find any, let alone a good one. But they’re certainly worth hunting out.
There’s also the rather tasty Kawasaki H2A reader’s special, which seems to define the term ‘street sleeper’ with its successful mating of snowmobile technology and original parts.
