follows the BJ250 B2.
The main differnce is the change of the tank logo. The colours stay the same.

The BJ250 A1 was a prototype
which came to Germany in 1993.
The ID number and colour prove that the A1 was a slightly changed BJ250 B1 for the German market.
This A1 was never officially solc, but still exists!

The new shock absorbers and carburettor heating of the B-version were also used for the BJ250 C but another fork bridge and handle bar were used. The BJ250 C received another Estrella logo - the third now. The  BJ250 C1A had - in contrast to the  BJ250 C1 - chromed fenders.
