Here we have two Rc30s. The most special one is a true rarity, as it is a new bike! I love the ad saying "New... is new ! no pictures needed..."
This rare example is obviously looking for a collector. What's the asking price ? It is 40.000 CHF = just short of 44.000 $
As we don't come across a new VFR750R very often, I reckon the asking price is aligned to the current market. If you are a collector this might the right one for you !
Form the same seller, comes a very usable and equally sexy low mileage RC30 kitted with a full Termignoni system (a rarity on its own) and a rear 17" wheel:
Both the original larger diameter wheel and the Honda exhaust system are included in the price. With just 16900 km, the asking price is set at 23.000 CHF = about 25000 $. I have been watching this second model for a few weeks since the middle of the summer. The price seems to go a bit up and down. I believe I have seen this varying between 19.000 CHF and 21.000 CHF but now for some reason, it went up to 23.000 CHF. I guess I should have bought it earlier...The thing is that here in Switzerland, there are about 6-7 RC30s on sale and the prices seem to have increased somewhat as the biking season comes to an end. This clearly goes against the natural trend of lower prices in winter. I always recommend to look for a bike in winter, as the offer is usually high and prices are more negotiable. I guess this doesn't really apply to RC30s and their potential customers. Winter is on our doorstep here, in the morning I ride through thick fog, cleaning my visor from the condensation with the dirty gloves every 300m...
On the other hand I am sure that soon a bunch of exciting rare sport bikes will come to the surface at interesting prices, I guess this simply doesn't apply to models so much sought after like the Honda RC30 and RC45...
