Click for full size - 65K April 2002 Bike of the Month belongs to Nigel from the United Kingdom.
Nigel recently picked up this 1990 NSR 250R SP a few months back and has really enjoyed the bike since then. Click for full size image - 68K
Click for full size image - 67K This NSR is fitted with a complete RS250 upper and lower cowl along with a carbon fiber RS250 seat cowl. The RS upper cowl was modified to work with the original headlight, and required some custom brackets and other little modifications.
The rear swingarm and frame were fully polished to a nice shiny mirror finish. Nigel's NSR is custom painted in Chesterfield Tech 3 colors. The wheel pin strips really make this bike stand out. Click for full size image - 67K

The back of the bike shows the stock NSR twin round lights peeking out from under the carbon fiber RS seat. Future plans will see a custom made LED light for cleaner looks. The exhaust system of this bike is very interesting. It uses the normal MC21 stock exhaust system with Hobbsport carbon race cans. Peak power improved slightly with an incredible sound that literally roars. Click for full size image - 47K

Nigel has himself one beautiful NSR and future plans that will see a RVF400 upside down fork conversion, 2002 RS250 bodywork, race pipes and a re-jet along with more power that should put a bigger smile on his face !! Click for full size image - 87K
