Motocross Racer – Derbi RC 250
Based in Barcelona, Spain Derbi created some of the most successful road racing bikes ever. They won many world championships in the small-bore two-strokes. They also won many Spanish national championships in the 125cc and 250cc classes.
This bike was their first “production” big-bore motocross bike. And this bike was a rocket! It was really pipey, but when it was on the pipe, it was fast! I think it got it’s powerband from the road racing days. I was working as a business consultant with the importer and Derbi the manufacturer. I was offer the chance to race this bike around the mid-west USA. I tricked mine out a bit more. I was also working with M. Robert plastics from Italy. I got all the latest plastics from them!
