Located outside Montreal, reader Rod sent in this brand new RC51. Pictures seem legit though listing on Kijiji is slightly suspect for something of this caliber. Listing states make offer but the price listed is $38,990 CAD, which is $28,770 USD as of today. This bike falls a couple years short of the 25 year import rule but this was a bike offered here in the U.S. the same year. Not sure if that helps but on the other hand, it destined to remain a display model the rest of it’s life so maybe it doesn’t matter.
2001 Honda RC51 on Kijiji in Canada
From the seller’s listing:
Only one ,brand new Honda RVT, 0km one owner. Just one in the world. Time capsule. Make an offer.
Unique au monde, Honda RVT SP1 complètement neuve, un seule propriétaire . Dans crate origine. 0km
Faire offre sérieuse svp.
If you’re looking for an RC51 you can actually ride, Black Market Motorsports has this 2002 SP2 model with just 6,500 miles available:
How does the seller know this is the only zero-mile one in existence? I find that claim hard to believe.
As God as my witness I will own one of these someday.every time I get close it’s gone. Perseverance will see me to it.
Take advantage of the strong dollar before it collapses
The “Bikes and Beards” guys might be interested, this has been their MO lately.
I believe that a dealer in NC has a zero mile first year RC51 SP1 on the floor. Glad I picked up my 05 when I did as the prices of these seem to keep climbing.
I often wonder how people can acquire a zero mile bike brand new in the crate.
Every brand new motorcycle I ever purchased, I attempted to take home brand new in the crate and the dealers would never let me do it even though I am a motorcycle mechanic of over 35 years.
I guess my chance is here!
if there is a first year o mile bike, it’s worth a million.
the first year are the real collector pieces as they were mostly built with handmade HRC parts. then it went into production line after that. I had one, but a buddy crashes it. I’ve had 5 total. have one left. there is nothing like an rc51. whoever picks this up … will have to throw down some serious cash:). best to have one to ride 😇 po
