RC45 Looks Without The Price And HP- 1997 Honda RVF400 NC35

Update 12.17.2013: Posted late last month, this one failed to get any bids with an opening of $10,500. It’s back on eBay with a starting bid of $8500. Links updated. -dc

If you still consider America a colony, look away. While they may be a dime a dozen in the U.K. these are still rare birds here in the New World. At first glance this particular NC35 looks very sharp.

As I mentioned you get the RC45 looks without losing your wallet. You aren’t going to out horsepower anyone but the 400’s were made for the twisties and I think give a similar experience to riding a street, 250cc two stroke.

It has some miles on it with the odometer showing 23,000.

The story on it:

YOU ARE BIDDING ON A RARE HONDA RVF400 COMMONLY CALLED AN NC35 OR BABY RC45. ONE OF HONDA’S CROWN JEWELS OF MOTORCYCLES WITH IT’S 90 DEGREE V4 RACE DERIVED ENGINE AND 250GP SIZE. IT IS IN ALL STOCK CONDITION WITH JUST OVER 23,000 MILES (I’M NOT THE FIRST OWNER. I’VE HAD IT SINCE 2005 AND IT CAME WITH A KPH TO MPH CONVERTER SO I THINK IS ALL MILES). IT INCLUDES OWNER AND SERVICE MANUALS IN JAPANESE ALONG WITH SOME SPARE PARTS (PLUGS,TURN SIGNAL, REAR PASSENGER PEGS AND OTHER SMALL MISC. PARTS. COMES WITH PIT BULL RACE STAND, ONE YEAR OLD LITHIUM BATTERY NEARLY NEW CHAIN AND SPROCKETS AND VERY GOOD CONDITION MICHELIN PILOT TIRES.

PLEASE NOTE: THIS HAS BEEN A TENDER LOVED RIDER (NEVER ABUSED- NO WHEELIES, PEG DRAGGING, TRACK DAYS OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT). IT’S READY TO GO, BUT THERE ARE A FEW MINOR MARKS. THAT I HAVE TRIED TO SHOW IN PICTURES. MINOR STONE NICKS IN FRONT COWL, SMALL SCRATCH IN BLACK BY SEAT, MINOR RUST ON CHROME EXHAUST SHIELD, SLIGHT FOGGING OF PLASTIC HEADLIGHT LENS, SMALL NICK IN PAINT ON TANK (MOST OF THESE WERE THERE WHEN I BOUGHT IT). THESE ARE ALL VERY MINOR BUT I WANT TO POINT THEM OUT SO EVERYONE IS HAPPY AT THE END OF THE DEAL

That front end still says Suzuka to me.

nc rear

It’s clean, it’s stock and it’s rare but I have a feeling the price will be an issue. The bidding starts at $10,500. I’m a fan of all the 400’s but the fact is they just don’t command the dollars. On the other hand, nice examples like this don’t appear for sale all that often; decisions, decisions.

100% fun: Honda NC30 (Germany)

This is a good looking track bike. The seller mentions that all the bits to make it street legal are also available.

Honda NC30 for sale on eBay in Germany

Not all track bikes are kept in a nice and tidy order. Some people think that what is not good for the road any more, can become a track bike. The serious riders, go on the track to utilize the full potential of a motorbike and not trash their unloved 2 wheeler.

$_585

All racing- for-fun bikes should receive the same attention as any other motorbike, be it an everyday use or a collection item. This one, seems pretty clean and hence it gets all my attention. NC30s, are great tools and they will put a huge smile on your face. The handling is razor sharp, they are tiny (like proper race bikes) and sound like nothing else.

In mainland Europe they are rare too 🙂

1993 Honda VFR400R NC30 available in San Francisco

VFR400

We last saw this beautiful machine available in May of 2010 when it was picked up by one of our favorite readers. Since that time, it has only covered an additional 1500 or so miles and the price is nearly the same as it was 3 years ago at $6600. We remarked then that we thought the price was a bit high but now I’d say that’s a great deal in the off season. Good luck with the sale!

Honda’s Take On a V4 400: 1989 Honda VFR400 NC30

nc left nc tank

And right on que, here is the the CBR400RR’s overbearing sibling, a really sharp looking 1989 VFR400, NC30.  I’ve never had the pleasure but I’ve been told the mechanical whine these engines produce is a symphony. 

nc left rear

This is one is far from stock and has some mileage but sounds well sorted:

There is quite a bit of money in upgrades on the bike:

17″ NSR MC28 Rear Wheel

Penske Rear Shock

Shell Livery Paint on stock bodywork (aftermarket tail cowl)

Re-valved and sorted front forks (recent service)

Rick Oliver Lower aftermarket radiator (trick)

Braided brake lines

Hi-Perform FULL exhaust system

Yamaha R6 upgraded Regulator/Rectifier

Earthing on bike has been updated and improved

NEW tapered steering head bearings (June 2013)

NEW front wheel bearings (June 2013)

Newer Chain and Sprockets

Nearly NEW Bridgestones with less than 500 miles on them!!

All in all it is a really well sorted NC30 with the 17 inch rear wheel, Penske Shock, Exhaust, re-valved front forks and larger lower radiator. It starts and runs perfect, carburates excellent and pulls clean all the way to redline. It is very quick for a 400, handles wonderfully and is a lot of fun to ride

nc right 2

Kind of liking it but still on the fence?

How about this from the seller:

 Plated with CLEAN AND CLEAR title and this bike has a correct 1989 17 digit 400cc Honda VIN complete with stamp and OEM Honda decal.

You should be able to title it in any state, even CA with the 17 digit VIN.

nc headlight

You want?  I was sold with the replica paint but I’m an easy sell.  I’m also partial to the older NC30’s lines compared to the late model NC35’s.  The seller has an auction going, as well as, a BIN of $7,500.  Is the 17 digit VIN and extra goodies enough to be in that price range? 

Be sure to check out the auction, the seller has provided a lot of high quality photos of the bike.

Here is the auction.

Following the Big Brother’s (RC30) Footseps: Honda NC 30 in Italy

Italy is being hit hard these days: the political situation is such that currently there isn’t a government despite elections were held just few weeks ago. The economy is getting worse by the day and new motorcycles sales are hitting the lowest point in 50 years. Nevertheless it seems that rare bikes like this beautiful NC 30 aren’t affected. With an asking price of 10.000 EUR (=13000 $) this VFR400R is on top of the range:

NC30_Italy_1

Is this the first sign that the small V4 will follow the myth of its bigger brother the RC30 ? With just 3000km on the clock this sample is indeed a rare and collectable one.

NC30_Italy_2

 

I am personally looking for one as I think riding a 400 cc on public roads is a better way to enjoy sport bikes without risking the jail  because of excessive speed. Add to that, the amazing sound of a V4 revving 14000 rpm, a great chassis, top notch looks and excellent build quality  and what more would you need ?

Have a listen to this:

If you’d like to know more about the great Honda V4s, check out http://www.vsource.org from which the two brochures below come from:

VFR400-UK1991-1a

 

VFR400-UK1991-2a

 

The above model is available in northern Italy and on sale on eBay at a fixed price of 10.000 EUR. The seller describes the bike as having just 3000 km and in complete stock condition.

Road legal and speed friendly Honda V4 – VFR400R NC 30 (in Germany)

For quite some years I have been invisible to speed cameras in the country where I live. Unfortunately, a few months ago it seems I lost my magic powers. I now find myself without a driving license for a few months. The reason for that was speeding on my pristine 1993 Fireblade. In many countries this side of the ocean (Europe),  it is becoming more and more difficult to enjoy the traditional Sunday blast on your beloved “rare sportbike” without bumping into troubles with the authorities because of the more frequent controls and tighter speeding rules. I am waiting for rules that would differentiate speeding between cars and motorbikes. At the moment, I feel the only one thinking that while a motorbike accelerates much faster than a car it also decelerates just as quick (it weighs only a fraction of a car and it is usually fitted with powerful brakes). Therefore if you are driving at a given speed the danger you pose to yourself and others it is not the same as if you were in a car (consider also the reduced dimensions and greater agility of movement of a bike).

Anyway to make a long story short, one solution to this problem could be acquiring a bike that is as sexy as your big 750cc, sounds just as good but actually doesn’t ride as fast…Does anything like this exist ? Yes and that’s not a CBR 600RR, but it is instead for example an exotic and yet affordable Honda NC 30. In the picture below you can appreciate how a pristine one looks like (this is available at a local dealer near where I live www.motospaetig.ch):

65469701745008301169

If you are not a collector but still would like to have such a rare bike for the above mentioned Sunday blast, you might then be interested in the auction below:

Honda NC 30_3 Honda NC 30_1

Now, if you closely and compare the pictures, you’ll  notice as the stickers on the bottom side fairing are not right, some are missing on the rear cowl and most scary the paint on the fuel tank doesn’t seem original either. The seller advises to see the bike before purchasing and rightly so.

(translated with Google):

Hello Auctioneer my Honda VFR 400RR NC 30 has a lot of fun that I always visit good technical and optical condition Please motorcycle before commanded duty, the item is being sold by private and there is no guarantee redemption

Honda NC 30_4

Honda NC 30_3

Nevertheless, if mechanically the bike would be in order, it is well worth the current bidding price below 2000 EUR even though the minimum price has not been reached yet with a few days remaining. I reckon that a reasonable value would be in the range between 3000-3500 EUR tops.
