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.
