    Progetti vari 138

    Hi, ive just bought an RS250 with the frame number ZD4LD000000R00001 Aprilia have confirmed it is the first rs250 to be produced but for some reason they don't have any info on a sticker near the chassis number that says 'Progetti vari 138' the bike looks nothing like standard and has a carbon tank and tail with flat slide carbs and a multi colour paint scheme.. any help appreciated..

    Progetti vari = different Projects

    Tank and Tail are Aftermarket Parts.

    Hi. Thanks for info
    Could the tank and tail not have been fitted by aprilia projects?
    Do you know anything about the colour scheme? Any others like this?
    I was told bike came from factory like this... It's only got 1000km on clocks and has never been used for over 20 years..

    would you mind sharing a pic of the vin so i can save it in my rs250 history folder on my computer

    Get your confidence back with Aprilia.

    caution: the use of motorcycles may be habit forming. side effects include purchasing multiple examples of the same bike, in different states of tune, different years, or different models altogether. some motorcycles may be not running when purchased. some parts are no longer available. there are rare instances where aprilias are bought over the internet and upon arrival, they are not as were originally disclosed. there is a small group of people who cannot handle two stroke engines and motorcycle maintenance. if this is the case, you may not be a candidate for Aprilia RS250's.

    Aprilia. Ask your doctor if the RS250 is right for you.

    Did you contact aprilia uk or in Italy, if I was you I’d go straight to the horses mouth in Italy, cut out the middle man in the uk who couldn’t be bothered to do anything for you because he won’t make any money off your enquiry and try and get an email address for someone in aprilia’s customers service dept in Italy and send off some photos and ask what you’d like to know. It may take a little effort but it won’t cost anything but a bit of patience and time.

    sorry I can’t help anymore than that.

    id leave her the way she is, she’s got character.
