2004 Honda CBR150R

Located in Milpitas, California is a very nice 2004 Honda CBR150R. This is the four-stroke replacement for the NSR150. This bike is titled and registered in California! Additional items (with stock items included) are: "PE Keihin 28mm carb w/ K&N filter, Endurance full exhaust and CDI." This bike has 5,100km. The asking price is a reasonable $2,500. I may head down to have a look at this bike if it's still available in a few days! See the bike on Bay Area Riders Forum here.

2001 Honda nsr 125

Found this neat little 2 stroke on the Philadelphia Craigslist

Honda NSR 125

123

Okay, I  know its a little rough looking, but these are basically non-existent in the states so it definitely falls into the RSBFS category.  I have no idea why anyone would forgo hundreds of dollars, on the re-sale side, and not put it back together.  The owner is asking $1,250 for it, but I can't help to imagine that it would bring $2,000+ if it was remotely put back together.  This would make a great winter project and I think the price is very, very fair.  

The owner says:

 2001 NSR125 Honda 2 stroke Imported from Italy.  Rare Bike not available in the USA. Runs great but needs plastics.

 
Maybe my co-author Phil has a hook up on a set of plastics for this.  Phil?

I searched youtube and found a video that represents how it might look.  Check it out.  I would love to have something like this to cruise around on.  Listen to it sing!

2004 Honda RC51 Nicky Hayden Edition with only 2135 miles on ebay

Here is a 2004 Honda RC51. What’s so special about a Honda you might say? Well, this is a not just a standard RC51 - it is a 2004 Honda RC51 Nicky Hayden Edition signed by its namesake. If you may recall, Nicky Hayden won the 2002 AMA Superbike Championship aboard a RC51 prior to being promoted to MotoGP (and went on to when the MotoGP Championship in 2006).

What else is special besides this dude’s signature? According to Wikipedia, the Nicky Hayden differs “from previous models by a polished aluminum frame and swing arm, a sticker kit, and white number plates on the front upper fairing and tail fairing.”

2004 RC51 Nicky Hayden Edition for sale

Additional information form the ebay listing:

You are bidding on a 2004 Honda RC51 Nicky Hayden Edition that has only 2135 miles on it. I am listing this bike for a good friend of mine. This bike is perfect and is new in every way, never any accidents or laid down in any way. Honda did not make that many of the Hayden bikes, so here is your chance to own one. The bike needs nothing and is ready for the road..........it comes with a matching helmet and back seat.

I do not know where the reserve is set but this is an almost new example down to the rear fender and reflectors. Not that I have ever owned a RC51, I do wish Honda would have continued development of their V-Twin sportbikes. Same with Suzuki’s TL1000R…

Uber rare Honda NR (NR750) for sale in The Netherlands

While RSBFS concerns mostly with bikes for sale in the US, for very special cases of uber-rare bikes we will make an exception, and this, boys and girls, is definitely one of them: a 1994 Honda NR for sale in the Netherlands.

Uber uber rare Honda NR (NR750) for sale

First produced in 1992, the NR (often mistakenly referred to as the NR750 - the 1987 Le Mans endurance racer) is an absolute legend with it's GP racing derived oval piston (often amusingly referred to as 'a can of spam') engine, and it was the 90s equivalent of  today's Ducati Desmosedici in terms of exoticism and price - it was the most expensive production bike of the day, retailing for $50,000 - back in 1992!  Here's more info on Wikipedia about this truly exotic ride.

All we know about the bike from the ad is that the seller is asking 48000 Euros for it.  Hard to comment on the price as you don't see a NR up for sale everyday, but if I had the cash, it'd be already sitting in my bedroom right by my bed!

2004 Honda RVT1000R (VTR1000R) RC51 Nicky Hayden

Located in Los Angeles, is a 2004 (SP2) Honda RVT1000R with two original miles! Normally, I wont post RC51s--regardless of how much I like them--because they are quite prevalent but this one is quite special at two original miles. The bike has a new battery and a recent tune-up. The bike comes with the back seat, sticker kit, and tool kit. The seller is looking for all the money at--the original MSRP of--$11,599. I have seen a few 2005-2006 (The OTHER paint scheme, but the last two years) with under 5k miles for around $8,000; but this bike is quite special being a desirable SP2 with two miles . If you're an odometer snob, this bike is for you (I'd still like to see the odometer however, as most bikes are delivered with around twenty miles). The bike still even has its original brake light, license plate mount, and curb feelers; I hate the rear fender eliminators! See this bike on Craigslist here.
