Im looking around for an early RSV, and RSVR, but would appreciate any opinions on this one:

2001 rsv

It does look immaculate, but I'm a little suspicious of the fact that the seller doesn't understand what constitutes an RSVR. He originally had it up for £2995 but now reduced it. He's changed the fork seals and shock Spring apparently.

Does anyone know this bike?

The decals have obviously been changed but is there anything you knowledgeable guys can see that indicates it's not a genuine 2001, as it looks OK to me. Any opinions on the hawk cans, as I'm not familiar with these.


Thanks.

Frankly, he knows very little about the bike. It might be 2001 registered but it's not a 2001 model and certainly not an 'R'. It's not even upgraded to R spec as it's missing the most important things, namely the Ohlins suspension and the OZ wheels.

On the plus side it does look nicely cared for and he is clearly an enthusiast as he also has what looks like a Skyline in the garage.

Yes, I did say I'd expect at least ohlins and oz, as you said, and he replied saying they'd just serviced the forks and kept the std wheels. I guess it's a 2000 model then? What indicates it's not a 2001?

2001 model was changed cosmetically, different top fairing, side panels and tank. Different tail unit and seat too. Engine was dropped a few degree's in the frame to give a lower CofG and the 990V60 Rotax moved from being a small valve type to a big valve.

different tank,sidepanels ,underseat panels ,seat unit ,seat ,rear light ,nose cone ,headlight ,dash cover.

Small valve engine not later bigvalve with higher lift cams etc etc etc that’s what makes it a 2000 model
If it was specced up to an r you’d have ohlins and Oz

Believe me you’ll buy it then want them those items and they are expensive been there done that go buy an r for the same money elsewhere

Thanks for that guys. For some reason I thought those changes were later, proving it always helps to have access to folk who know what they are talking about. Will check out those rsvr's as well. 👍
