WR250R for sale @ MotoCamp Bulgaria


This is a bit of a different kind of sale. This bike belongs to a friend with whom I rode the Trans Euro Trail last fall. That trip was my friends bucket list dream as he was battling a very dangerous cancer. My friend passed away two weeks ago and I'm now helping the family with the sale of this bike which is situated at the finish point of our TET trip: Moto Camp Bulgaria.

The bike is a WR250R with less than 25000 km on the odometer. It has:
  • Biratania Composite Lynx fairing
  • Montana GPS rugged mount (the Montana GPS can be added to the sale)
  • seat concept
  • 3.1 gallon tank
  • a set of Kriega OS 32 bags (light damage)
  • handguards
  • skid plate
  • radiator guard
  • wider pegs
  • rear rack
  • and maybe more...

Now the bike needs a little repairs, here is what I think this bike needs:
  • a new exhaust cover (the original one was melted because a spacer was lost and it touched the exhaust)
  • a new chain guard (the original one is chewed up pretty good)
  • the handguards need tinkering, they are interfering with the throttle free movement
  • there's a crack on the Lynx fairing, it needs reinforcing
  • new tires

As you can imagine there's possibly a few unknown regarding the bike. All I know is that its running well and just need a bit of TLC and new parts before hitting the road again. The pricing will be adjusted accordingly and this is not a sale where we are looking to extract a maximum price. The goal here is really to help the family close this part of the succession. Hopefully we can find someone and settle on a price which would make both parties satisfied. A lot can be discussed and worked out. I will be in charge of handling this sale and Im open to propositions.

Price is up to discussion but I reckon it should be less than 3000 euros.

Thank you!

I'd possibly be interested depending on the difficulty of getting it registered in my name / where it's registered. Keep us updated, I'll be in Europe in 3 or 4 weeks. Good luck either way, Dan

Sorry but couldn't link a picture in the post but you can check our blog for some pictures of the bike.


I also have a WR250R, the one for sale is the one with the Lynx fairing.

The bike is registered in Canada, Quebec. My understanding is that to register the bike we first have to import it. When we passed customs in Italy they told us it was 8% of the bike value for import. The second part would be to register it. This would have to be figured out by the buyer and according to his country's regulation.
