For Sale: 1992 Honda RC30 VFR750
Located in Lincolnshire, UK is what many refer to as the Holy Grail of homologation sportbikes: the vaunted Honda RC30 (also known as VFR750R). Designed as the road-going model to enable Honda to compete in World Superbike via Honda Racing Corporation (HRC), stats on the RC30 are pretty well known: titanium connecting rods, gear driven camshafts, a 360 degree crank which provide a "big bang" firing order instead of the smoother 180 degree crank on the regular VFR models, a close ratio gearbox suitable for track use and a slipper clutch.
From the seller:
I am selling my rare Honda RC30 that I have had in my conservatory for years.
It is finished in a limited edition Rothermans Grand Prix paint run done from new from the factory.
Carl Fogarty signed and laquered in on the rear panel.
I have just taken it out my conservatory and had it MOT'd and new fork seals fitted as it has been stood.
This is one of the last UK bike not an import registered 01/08/1992 so is the higher powered model.
It has covered 19000miles.
The asking price of this classified listing is £14,995 - which equates to approximately $23,500 US greenbacks. That is a bit above the "average" RC30 pricing we have seen, but this does look to be a clean example that has been well cared for. It is unknown how much status the Carl Fogarty signature adds to the bike; while Foggy is known as being the most successful World Superbike rider of all time, the vast majority of his championships came with Ducati. In fact, Foggy's Honda-based runs for the championships were aboard the RC45, not the RC30. Still, with a HRC racing heritage, the signature does complete the theme nicely.
If you are looking for what is considered one of the key homologation collectables in the world today - and are either in the EU or willing to move a bike from Jolly Olde England - then this might be your golden opportunity. For more information you can check out the listing here. Good luck!
