Featured Listing: Tastefully Modified 2004 Honda RC51 Nicky Hayden Edition

The Honda RC51 had a short lifespan as a factory-supported superbike contender, but it made its years count, taking home World Superbike titles in 2000 and 2002. The latter was a special year for the big twin Honda, as Nicky Hayden also captured the AMA Superbike championship aboard one. Honda celebrated the feat in 2004 by building a run of RC51s that wore the Hayden red white and silver livery, as well as faux number plates and the Kentucky Kid’s signature Woody Woodpecker decals.

2004 Honda RC51 for sale on eBay

The seller of this gorgeous 2004 Honda RC51 has taken the modifications beyond the sticker kit, adding a list of functional updates as long as your arm. The most obvious are the magnificent Core Moto wheels. A Scott’s steering damper is paired with K-Tech cartridge-equipped forks and an Ohlins rear shock to keep the chassis in top form. With less than 7,000 miles on the clock, you’ll be hard pressed to find a nick or scratch on this machine.

From the eBay listing:

Nicky Hayden collection with authentic signatures on his book and team shirt (signatures are authentic from my personal collection), includes moto gp Tissot watch, limited edition from when he won the championship. Watch needs new battery, watch has some use but in excellent shape. Tons of accessories, bike is 9.9/10 condition, like new.

In case you’re somehow unconvinced by the bike itself, the seller is throwing in a Tissot watch that was made to celebrate Hayden’s 2006 MotoGP championship, and a commemorative book and team shirt, both of which bear his signature. At $15k or best offer, this RC51 is the absolute top of the heap.

Zero Mile ’01 Honda RC51 RVT

Location: Moose Jaw, Canada

Mileage: Zero (0), nada, goose egg

Price: Auction, $12,999 BIN

The RC51 is the end of a celebrated line of race bikes out of Honda. The RC30 and RC45 are well known here and represent the greatest of Honda homologated bikes. The RC51 hasn’t reached that status. Yet. The racing history is there with Colin Edwards riding it and Nicky Hayden’s AMA Superbike title on it. Built as a Ducati beater, the bike is also unlike anything Honda builds today. You want big V-twin sound and power and Honda reliability and build quality? Well, this is your bike.

This one is also a little more special because it’s brand new. Zero miles. Here’s what the seller has to say-

Yes, this is a brand new 2001 Honda RC51.  This is not a demo and has never been sold!

Why is this unsold you may ask?  Mostly, the part of Canada that our dealership is located has a low population density.  Also, originally there was a retail based incentive program that has long since expired.

We bought this back in 2003.  This price is below our original cost.  Originally this bike’s MSRP was  $15,999. There is a 1 year factory warranty that is only available in Canada.

Bike is uncrated and has been in our showroom since then.  Crating and shipping would be at an extra cost.

Shipping, brokers, taxes or duties are all the responsibility of the buyer.

This is a rare chance to purchase a new bike that is destined for super bike status.

Rear seat cowl is also available at extra cost.

Call to discuss this bike in person.

This bike if for sale locally and could end at any time.

And some more pics-

So there’s really not too much to discuss here except the price. Most RC51’s go around the $6k to $8k mark, including the Nicky Hayden replicas. However, virtually none of them are brand new bikes from 2001 with no mileage. So you will have to take that into consideration. Pricing on stuff like this is difficult and depends on the market. At $12,999, this will cost you more now than when it was new. What I don’t think is difficult is the future collectibility of the bike. The RC51 has all the history you’ll need to maintain value and be desirable into the future.

So there you have it. If it’s time to start that collection or complete it, then take a look and place your bid!
