What a great little bike! The RS was a roadster using the XL250 4 valve single engine. At the time in the UK 250cc was the limit for learner riders who had not passed a test. The RS was a popular choice for learners because it was light, nimble and quite fast. I bought the bike in 1982 for my girlfriend. When we later set up home together it carried the pair of us to work for many years in all weathers. The RS was very similar to the CBF250 I ride today.
