Shade of Grey: 1993 Honda VFR400 NC30

NC30_1

The Honda VFR400 model - also known as the NC30 or Baby RC30 - is one of the bikes that defines the grey-bike movement. It's not all about two strokes with a side of ring-a-ding ding when it comes to rarities and imports. Models with actual moving valves (disk and reed valves notwithstanding) also qualify. And in this group, the little NC30 is a real gem. Sporting a V4 configuration with gear driven cams, no other 400cc bike can match the sound of the VFR. Throw in RC30 themed body work, a single sided swingarm, and enough Honda technology to back up the looks, and you can see why the NC series is seen as the pinnacle of the 400cc segment. Style, power and sophistication - it's the Honda way.

From the seller:
1993 Honda VFR 400 NC30 CALIFORNIA STREET PLATED LOTS OF SPARES!!

Rare 1993 VFR 400 NC30, correctly titled as 1993 Honda with 11 digit VIN, current 2014 tags and has been CA titled over 15 years!

This is one of my project bikes I am clearing out as I have not had time to work on it over the last year, I need to finish another bike and the NC needs to go.

There is a large number of spares that come with the bike, some new some used, lots of good stuff and a couple thousand dollars worth new.

This particular bike is not exactly mint nor museum. That is not uncommon for these models, and many have had a pretty hard life. The seller indicates that this one could likely use a complete disassembly, cleaning and so forth. The good news is that there is a CA title and a ton of spares included. If you are looking for ride-away condition, you best look elsewhere. However if you are in the mood for a project, this one likely has your name on it. Check it out here (along with a lot of seller details and more pictures), and let us know what you think. Good luck!!

Honda’s Take On a V4 400: 1989 Honda VFR400 NC30

nc left nc tank

And right on que, here is the the CBR400RR's overbearing sibling, a really sharp looking 1989 VFR400, NC30.  I've never had the pleasure but I've been told the mechanical whine these engines produce is a symphony. 

nc left rear

This is one is far from stock and has some mileage but sounds well sorted:

There is quite a bit of money in upgrades on the bike:

17" NSR MC28 Rear Wheel

Penske Rear Shock

Shell Livery Paint on stock bodywork (aftermarket tail cowl)

Re-valved and sorted front forks (recent service)

Rick Oliver Lower aftermarket radiator (trick)

Braided brake lines

Hi-Perform FULL exhaust system

Yamaha R6 upgraded Regulator/Rectifier

Earthing on bike has been updated and improved

NEW tapered steering head bearings (June 2013)

NEW front wheel bearings (June 2013)

Newer Chain and Sprockets

Nearly NEW Bridgestones with less than 500 miles on them!!

All in all it is a really well sorted NC30 with the 17 inch rear wheel, Penske Shock, Exhaust, re-valved front forks and larger lower radiator. It starts and runs perfect, carburates excellent and pulls clean all the way to redline. It is very quick for a 400, handles wonderfully and is a lot of fun to ride

Kind of liking it but still on the fence?

How about this from the seller:

 Plated with CLEAN AND CLEAR title and this bike has a correct 1989 17 digit 400cc Honda VIN complete with stamp and OEM Honda decal.

You should be able to title it in any state, even CA with the 17 digit VIN.

You want?  I was sold with the replica paint but I'm an easy sell.  I'm also partial to the older NC30's lines compared to the late model NC35's.  The seller has an auction going, as well as, a BIN of $7,500.  Is the 17 digit VIN and extra goodies enough to be in that price range? 

Be sure to check out the auction, the seller has provided a lot of high quality photos of the bike.

Here is the auction.

Easy On The Eye: CA Titled 1992 Honda VFR400R NC30

Easy On The Eye:  CA Titled 1992 Honda VFR400R NC30

Update 9.14.2012: In less than 8 hours, this bike has sold to one of our readers. Congratulations to buyer and seller!

You don't even have to think about it, your brain just know's these NC30's just look "right".  Their allure is more than just being a RC30 that's been run through the dryer too many times.  Because the big four never graced us with the exotic 400's (sorry FZR400 loyalist) these bikes rise to the top of the "me want" list.  It is a shallow thing but to me paint is everything on these NC 30's.  The models not in the stunning red,white,blue look very pedestrian by comparison.

I'll admit, I saw this bike listed a couple of nights ago and had to do some arithmetic in my head to see if I could sneak another bike into the garage. Hopefully the numbers work out better for a RSBFS reader out there because the bike is priced quite reasonably, the seller is asking $5,500.  That is well within the price range you see these bikes listed for.

Here is all the crucial info from the seller:

California titled and registered.
33,500kms ( 21,000mi).
Meticulously maintained, all old NC30 issues dealt with (voltage regulator, fork seals, etc.).
A few scrapes and dings but shows well and rides beautifully.
Extensive spares and set of after market body work included.
Rear stand, cover, parts books and manuals in Japanese and English.
One of the best handling and most forgiving bike I have ridden.

 

If you are like me and can't leave well enough alone when you buy a bike I suggest you visit the 400greybike.com forum.  I don't know if you could possibly find more info on the NC30's anywhere else.  There is everything from basic service/model info to advice on every modification possible.  Have you seen these with the Suzuka style uppers?

I have a feeling if you don't break the piggy bank open quickly this is all you will see of this bike.

It is listed on Los Angeles Craigslist.

Ever wonder how exotic Honda got with its' works RVF400?  Get some tissue and take a look at this thing!  That tank is serious racing porn.  These pictures are posted on a thread about TT-F3 racing on the 400greybike forum.
