Strip and rebuild a few years ago, radiator rebuild, bearings, chain/sprockets, calliper rebuild, braded lines (original ones still present). Collector box and pipes in amazing condition. Original paintwork in beautiful condition. I MOT’d it and rode it for a short while after the rebuild and she has been in storage ever since. Comes with spare collectors, downpipes, carbs, screen, gaskets and other bits.

NC29 – Near mint. Late model, 1 previous owner, low mileage. White with flame pattern. Complete with one of the last, boxed OEM exhaust cans anywhere (about £500 when you could get them).

NC30 RR-K RC30 colours. Low mileage. Absolutely gorgeous and clean under the skin, but there is a small dent in the tank, and most of the fairings are spot on, but a couple need a little work. Fairings are included, but not shown in the photos.

NC30 RR-L Black and red. Near mint, but the wheels could do with a repaint.

CB1100RD – What a beast! Needs restoration, but is complete. Also, with a spare set of rear shocks in good condition, plus a basically new complete rear shock set and front forks, triple tree (all original, genuine RD spares) and £1000 worth of new OEM fastenings, etc. Lower fairings and spare seat cowls are available, but not shown in the photos.

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.

1993 Honda VFR 400 R (NC 30)

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.

Mini RC30: 1993 Honda NC30 VFR400r

NC30_22

The VFR400R – or NC30 as it is known in Honda parlance – is one of the more rare 400cc bikes we post on this site. These machines are coveted for razor sharp handing, decent V-4 power and the killer sound of a gear-driven valve train. The fact that these share a sillhouette (right down to the single-sided swingarm) with the larger RC30 does not hurt one bit!

NC30_6

This example is pretty clean. In fact, it is far cleaner than *most* NC30s I have seen. Like all NC30s, this one is an import; these were never officially brought into the US by Honda. Today’s model looks to have been imported from either Canada or directly from Japan. Under normal circumstances, Japanese imports tend to show oxidation and evidence of weather exposure. This one, however, looks quite good.

NC30_5

From the seller:
Here is a very rare to the U.S. 1993 Honda NC30 never imported to the states. This bike is very nice! The bike has 11,000 kilometers which equals out to about 6,000 miles. It starts easily with the choke and takes a little while to get warm, but once warm this baby is a blast! Idles very nice and runs thru all six gears very nice. The front and rear shocks are tight and nice. The brakes stop on a dime. All the lights and blinkers work perfect. This bike has no leaks and is ready for someones collection or to just ride the rarest Honda 400 crotch rocket in the United States. Please research this bike further to know what a gem it really is. Most of the ones I’ve seen are ragged out and beat up. I only have a bill of sale for this bike and some import paperwork. I usully put the plate from a Honda 600 I have to ride it to shows and bike nights. My buddy has a NC28 and its titled as a Honda vfr. Never tried to go thru the title process so please dont ask advice. NO TITLE just to be clear but the bike is clean and clear.

NC30_2

The seller points out the good, the bad and the ugly when it comes to rare, grey market import bikes. While they are rare and unique, they also present a special kind of headache when it comes time to try to register it for street use. Depending upon the state and the level of patience with bureaucracy, this might just be a track-only machine for some.

NC30_1

This auction is one right now, and the bidding has been nonexistent. The opening ask of $4,500 is not too far out of whack, but with a reserve in place and a BIN set at $10,000 it appears that the seller has hit the holiday egg nog early. I can only imagine that bidders interested in this machine are scared away by the huge BIN number. Take a look at it here and then let us know what you think. What should a clean NC30 without title run these days?

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.
