    Its back. It is an SP2. Pros: bone stock. Cons: dings and SHIT photos. I've asked him if he sold the other one.

    Never buy a bike off someone that has two of that model.
    Chances are you will be buying the worst of everything.

    Spotted that last night, seems a little expensive considering how rough it is, though hard to know considering the terrible photos.

    I'd be prepared to pay that much for a great example. Not sure if my expectations are wrong or not, hard to tell with so few examples for sale.

    I think you're right about the price being too high. That's the sort of money I'd expect to pay for a really nice example and preferably an SP-2 one at that.

    according to his terrible ad copy it is an SP2 (better fuelling) but less desirable.

    The RC51s that end up here seem to usually be insurance write offs from the US.

    I’ve never dealt with the bike dealer, but if you really keen it might be worth seeing if you could get a clean one out of Japan.

    Hardly ever see an NZ new SP1 or 2 on Trademe

    i had a thing for these for awhile but never got one... remember seeing new at big boys toys in Auckland when they came out, over $30k new at time! Also remember being marketed locally as sp3-4-5 etc even though no changes later years. Local dealer had is personal Castrol colours one on show for awhile. Few years ago was heaps of them on tm around 10k mark.
