1986 Honda NS400R Rothmans Replica California Registered!

This is a 1986 NS400R Rothmans Replica that looks to be titled & Registered in California!  Located in Oak Hills, California is a 1986 Honda NS400R with California plates on it.  The seller doesn’t state directly that the bike is street registered but I’d assume it is from the photos and it also having 11,750 miles.  In 1986, NS400R’s were released in a Freddie Spencer, Rothmans, replica paint scheme.  This example looks to be in very good condition only missing the Rothmans decals on the sides.  NS400Rs feature a three-cylinder, two-stroke engine with ATAC in a V formation.  Two cylinders face forward and one on the back side of the V; this formula results in a respectable 59hp to the rear wheel.  With 59rwhp and weighing in at 415lbs wet, the NS400R was known to be one of the best handling bikes when it was released.  Now, this is where RSBFS comes in.  A bike that was renowned when released had to have people fighting to get one; however, the bike was never officially sold in the U.S., making it nigh impossible unless you had the means.  This a lucky example brought in by someone with the means!  The only imperfection with the bike, the seller mentions, is that the tach currently isn’t working–a necessity on a two-stroke.  The last NS400R we saw in the U.S. sold for $8,000 on eBay with eight bids.  The asking price for this one is a bit steeper at $10,500; but, as always, try to find another California registered example.  See the bike on Craigslist here.

  • Just so you know, getting a bike registered in CA is easy, did it twice, once an ’86 NS400R for Quebec, once a ’88 V-Max from Thailand. If it has a 17 digit serial number matching your documentation, it takes 30 minutes. I imagine newer bikes are more difficult.
