Well how about a..................BRAND NEW MOTORCYCLE , A 2002 Honda RC51 RVT 1000cc 6-speed Red & Silver Metallic that is. So now this is it, this is your last chance to own a BRAND NEW RC-51 V-Twin liquid cooled Super Bike. This year model has the improved PGM-FI, (fuel injection system),suspension and swing arm, same as 2006 model. This bike is brand new, out of the crate, from the dealer to my garage. Not a mark, not a scratch, or even been sat on, no disappointments. Only 1 MILE from factory. Bike comes with owners manual, tool kit and a new oil filter. The battery is brand new, and the bike has been run periodically. This is a unmolested motorcycle, so why would you buy used and abused when you can have a BRAND NEW BIKE? I lost interest so my loss your gain. Serious Offers Considered
Honda no longer makes the RC51 so if you have a Honda Collection or simply have a thing for Japanese V-twins you definitely should give this one a look. It's like stepping back in time to 2002. I had the opportunity to ride a 2002 demo model and was impressed by the linear power it produced. As a matter of fact, at the time I sold one of my FZR400's and was going to buy a RC51, but then life happened and those plans fell through and I lost my FZR in the process 🙁
