It held the record for fastest production bike until it was toppled in 1999 by the GSX1300R Hayabusa, shortly before the gentleman's agreement between the main players to limit top speeds to 186mph in 2000.
Honda initially developed the bike to win the title from Kawasaki's Ninja ZX-11 but in the process ended up developing a surprisingly usable machine.
