1998 Honda RVF 400 NC 35 with a valid North Carolina title.
UPDATE: This is back on ebay with a Still a little high, but 10% cheaper than last time 🙂
It is 12(14) years removed from brand new, but it looks to be in good shape and ready to rock-n-roll. Equipped with a small V4 engine, single sided swing arm and dual headlights these were definitely not the norm back in 98. Although, they were never officially brought state side there seem to be several of them around and you can almost always find one for sale. As a matter of fact, Alex posted a race version last week that was all tricked out.
The bad news on this one is the
B.I.N. price is set at $10,000.00, which is quite exorbitant. Most RVF/VFR’s that we’ve posted are in the $4,000 to $8,000 range w/ titles and streetable. Nonetheless, if you are looking for one of these give this one a look. They are still stylish and don’t look dated like some bikes from the mid 90’s.
Quotes from the listing:
This is a rare Japanese Domestic street legal race bike with a valid NC title. The bike was purchased in Japan by an American service man. He brought it back legally to the states. I have had the bike since 2003 and have used it almost exclusively on the track. It is in like new condition and pristine. Only one minor defect in an unfortunate incident on the back of my truck. Never abused and only used on a few US Desmo track days.
There are several more pictures posted on the auction site. The seller mentions an accident, but I couldn’t find any pictures that detailed it. Bike is said to have 6,000 miles on the clock, but you’d be hard pressed to tell it by looking at the pictures.
