What Is It?

The Honda VFR750R RC30 is a rare iconic sports bike which was created for the World Superbike Championship by HRC and is now seen as an investment opportunity. It's powered by a liquid cooled 748cc V4 16 valve engine, producing 94bhp at 11,300rpm and maximum torque at 9,800rpm.

Features include:

  • Aluminium twin spar frame
  • Dual 310mm discs up front with Nissin 2 piston calipers
  • 220mm disc at the rear with Nissin 2 piston caliper
  • Adjustable 43mm Showa quick release fork with 120mm travel
  • Adjustable Showa rear shock with 130mm travel
  • Stainless Steel 4->2->1 exhaust system
  • 4 Keihin VD 38mm carbs
  • Slipper clutch, single seat
  • 6 speed gearbox

While it's based on the 35kg heavier standard VFR750 there are a number of key differences which, along with the very low numbers around, keep the price sky high. Firstly it's a proper race bike which happens to be road legal and it dominated the Isle of Man TT race in the late 80s.

The engine features gear driven camshafts, Titanium conrods, 360° crank setup and close ratio gearbox with very tall first gear (up to around 80mph). It also features a specially designed clutch, water pump, oil pump, cylinder head, valve train and pistons.

The 6-spoke 17" front wheel takes a 120/70 tyre and the 8-spoke 18" rear wheel a 170/60 tyre.
