This selection of quarter litre screamers belong to our friends at the ABC stable, each one is a perfect example of its breed.
Suzuki were the first manufacturer to put a full alloy frame around a production motorcycle engine, the result was the MK1 RG250 Gamma.
The ABC collection also have a late MK3 version, in a few short years the Gamma 250 went from being the future to being a has been. The opposition caught up and quickly surpassed the water cooled parallel twin cylinder RG250.
Was the Kawasaki KR-1 and the later KR-1S model better than the Yamaha TZR250? That’s a question that still begs for an answer. For many the RGV250 models are the purest two stroke street racers.
Edging their bets the ABC garage provides sanctuary for each of these contenders. It’s like a great hand in a Top Trumps game, with everything from a less than 700 mile old RGV250 to the quirky Yamaha R1Z all present.
Each of these 250cc machines are special in their own way, how could anyone pick a favourite? We can’t!
