Another Honda VFR400 (NC30) Up North, Eh!

Location: Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Mileage: 12,200

Price: $4,400 BIN

Just a few days back, RSBFS posted a Honda VFR400R for sale in the states, and that’s a rare sight indeed. Here’s another one for sale up in the great white north where everyone is all aboot awesome 400cc sportbikes, and 250cc two strokes too. All those bikes are about stellar power-to-weight ratio’s and monster handling. The VFR400R falls right into that category with a smokin’ V-4 motor to give you power and keep the weight and handling where you want.

This bike is one of many that look to be offered by the same seller. The other bikes you will see here on RSBFS too. Here’s what the seller has to say-

Honda VFR 400R (NC30) 20,400 Km 1990 

Powerful smooth V4 engine, 400CC, liquid cooled, four stroke V-four cylinder, 16 valve DOHC. Electric starting, 59 HP 6 speed transmission. Pro Arm Single sided swing arm. Aluminum frame. 31 inch seat height. Front and rear disk brakes. 165 Kg dry weight. Very low insurance. Certified.

And a few photos-

There’s not a lot to the description and there aren’t many photos. But for what there is, the bike looks clean and original. This bike is up in Canada, so it may be less desirable for us in the lower 48 in terms of getting it home. But if you want to make it happen, the price isn’t too bad and may make up for a little bit of the hassle. And you would have one of the coolest bikes on the road.

If you want to make this happen, hop over to the auction and make your play!

’93 Honda VFR400 (NC30)- Not perfect, but still killer!

Location: Grove, Oklahoma

Mileage: 9,754

Price: $5,000 BIN

Anyone out there want a mini RC45? This isn’t that iconic, uber rare, limited production superbike from Honda, but it is a killer bike regardless. The Honda VFR400 was never imported into the States, but is a staple in countries all around the world. You get a 400cc V-4 and a lightweight package to give you excellent handling. The 400cc machine has never been a big hit stateside, but I think it’s a great motor that will provide a ton of fun.

Here’s the seller’s description-

1993 Honda NC30 VFR400.  15699km (9754 miles), street legal, “grey import”.  Produced for domestic Japaness market.  This bike is in great condition.  I have put about 900 miles on it since purchased in 2008.  Tires, chain and sprockets all in good condition.  Two Brothers exhaust, otherwise stock.  Very fun to ride.  Sounds awesome!  Great collector/conversation piece.

And pics-

Looking over the photos, this bike is clearly no super mint machine. The seller highlights some of the cosmetic issues in the photos, so you will be getting a bike that has some issues. The mileage isn’t too outrageous and hopefully the maintenance has been done so the bike runs well. The seller doesn’t provide a lot of history in this area, so you’ll want to find out as much as you can. Exhaust has been swapped, but that shouldn’t be a major concern.

So here’s an opportunity to own a killer ride that you just couldn’t get here in the U.S. A great motor and chassis to have a good time on, and an opportunity to ride something you won’t see on every corner. You can take it home for $5k, which is a good amount for this bike. But maybe you can get a deal. If you want to make a play, go get in on the action!

Baby RC30: 1990 Honda VFR400R (NC30)

Location: Marysville, OH

Miles: 11,433

Price: Currently $5,034 with Reserve ($7,500 BIN)

This bike had me seriously fooled when I first saw the photo. I though RC30 for a half second until I read this description. I was close, but this however is a VFR400R (NC30) and not its famous big brother. Having said that, I still think this thing is AWEOSME! RC30 styling, the cool factor that comes from a grey-market bike and Honda’s V4 design in the 400cc version are killer things which equal to about a quarter the price of the RC. I wouldn’t feel bad about taking this thing out all the time as I would with a real RC30.

Now, this bike isn’t a bone stock example, and the paint scheme has been modified to mirror that of the RC30. But this isn’t a Faux-rarri with a Fiero engine underneath, this thing is all Honda. There are a few modifications done to the bike, but it seems to me that they are all tastefully and purposefully done. Someone spent some time building this and it shows.

Here is a photo of a stock VFR400R of the same year.

From the Seller:

I have owned this bike for the past 8+ years, it starts and runs great.
Engine is stock. I have not done any modifications internally. It has had very regular oil and
filter changes and has a low mileage (maybe a few 1000) air filter and plugs. I have never tracked this bike. It has been adult owned and ridden since it came to the states. I have a clear Ohio title for it.

18400 Kilometers (11433 miles), gauge face changed to MPH
CBR600RR Front forks, brakes, fender, triples w/ custom adapters
Stainless brake hoses
Aftermarket alum clipons
CBR600 Front wheel
Aluminum screen brace and fairing / headlight / gauge mount
CRG brake & clutch levers
Silicone coolant hoses
Aprilia RS250 rear shock
Rick Oliver rearsets w/ Gilles pegs
Aluminum rear sub frame
NC35 Rear wheel (17″)
Wave rear rotor
Lots of Alum, Ti & stainless fasteners
RC30 replica paintwork on stock fairings
Custom RC30 solo seat tail section w/ custom tail light brackets & plate bracket RC30 Back pad
Fresh powder coat on wheels (this spring)
1 month old gel battery
Less than 1000 miles on Michelin Pilot tires, chain & both sprockets
Custom shorty muffler on Ethos exhaust
Sealed swingarm w/ through arm rear brake hose
YZF regulator / rectifier
Custom made Stainless side stand
SSR threaded fuel tank cap
Other small stuff I have forgotten.

There are a few blemishes in the body work and a small dent in the tank. Everything is repairable but would require re paint which is why I have not gotten to it. I could go on and on about good condition etc. If you have specific questions do not hesitate to contact me.

I am listing the bike with a buy it now option. That option includes a excellent condition full stock exhaust and muffler bracket. My reserve is lower than the BIN price and does not include the exhaust.

Sure this isn’t a bone stock garage queen, but that’s perfect. If you wanted something to stare at and always worry about riding, then save up about $25-$30k and buy the RC30. This baby VFR is meant to be ridden and enjoyed, and you can bet people heads will turn when cruising on this thing. I only wish I had the cash to score it.  Bidding is already active and the seller states the Reserve is lower than the BIN, but the BIN does include a clean stock exhaust. If you dig this thing as much as I do, then take a look at the auction here and place your bid!

Music for Your Ears: Honda NC30 with Tyga Exhaust (Austria)

Ever wanted to hear on your daily ride the sound of the Honda V4 but can’t afford an RC30 ? Well here is a second choice that will prove to be just as involving. The model below is on sale in Austria: Honda NC30 with Tyga Exhaust

Completely original apart from turn lights and red stripes on the rims, this bike comes with a Tyga exhaust fitted:

And here is how such a toy sounds like:

Isn’t that awesome ?

All other original parts will be supplied to you with the bike as commented below by the seller:

Hallo!!!!!

Verkaufe Honda VFR 400 R in super Zustand!!!!

Das Motorrad hat Stahlflexxleitungen,kleine blinker,und sportauspuffanlage!!!

Motorrad ist Technisch 1A , und optisch weist es bis auf kleine Gebrauchsspuren keine Mängel auf!!!!

Bei Fragen können Sie gerne unter der Nummer 0680/2374990 anrufen!!

Originalteile vorhanden!!!!!

The bike has just less than 28000km :

As his bigger brother, the RC30, this small capacity V4 comes with a single sided swing arm and 18 inch rear wheel:

Front tyre 120/70
Rear tyre 150/60 (18″ rim)
Wheelbase  1345mm
Dry weight 170kg
Power 56bhp @ 12,750rpm
Torque 26 lb-ft @ 9,700rpm

Many lucky owners who used to have one in their garage and exchanged for a bigger capacity 4 cylinder bike did regret the move. Nowadays it become hard to find one in good conditions such as this. At a “buy it now” price of 4700 EUR ($5867 USD) this seems an excellent opportunity (an equivalent condition RC30 won’t go for less than 5 times that price assuming you’ll find one).

What can I say, whoever will be quick enough to grab this iconic Japanese 400cc will have all my jealousy !

May 1st Mailbag — A Little Late but Worth the Wait

Hey guys,

Sorry for the delay this week but we got a ton of submissions, probably twice as many as usual. While I’ve passed on a few almost all made the cut. Thanks for your submissions and have a great rest of your week!

dc

Chris M shoots us his listing for a 1997 Moto Guzzi Daytona RS. Just 5400 miles and located in San Diego. Good luck with the sale!

Perhaps the deal of the day (even with the goofy signals), Chris forwards the first of several sweet finds in the Toronto area. Here’s a 1996 Kawasaki ZX-7RR for just $4500 CAD. Doug needs to a leave a comment on this one!

Chris S. forwarded us this great looking 1985 Ducati MHR Mille in San Francisco. $21500, miles not disclosed.

Dan spotted this freshly imported 1989 Honda VFR400 NC30 for sale in Toronto. 27k kilometers, $6000 CAD.

By now you know I’m a sucker for mass produced sportbikes of the past that have somehow survived. This one strikes a chord with me as my first bike in college was an FZR 600. This one spotted by Louie has only 70 miles and is located in the Winston-Salem area. Seller is asking just $3400. {flame suit on!}

Gregg spotted another sharp Aprilia Bol ‘d Or RSV1000R in Reno for $9350 with under 5k miles!

Chris spotted an interesting 1992 Yamaha 3TJ FZR400RR for sale in Toronto. After conferencing with Doug, it appears it does have OEM bodywork though looks painted. For $2499 CAD might be worth a look for such a trick little machine. For those in the U.S., check out our sponsor SpeedWerks, who have extensive FZR400 experience on track.

Craig spotted this Red Bull Rookies Cup KTM 125 GP Bike on the WERA classifieds. It’s a brand new bike, never ridden, and has spares. $24k.

Adam forwarded this rare Bimota SB6 in New Haven for $9999. Rare because it’s actually been ridden nearly 9k miles!

Tim forwards us another nearly new track bike, a 2008 Honda CBR125 track bike with just 2km’s. For just $4500, this looks like a fun track day machine for a smaller rider.

Monday Mailbag!

First up is submitted by “Dan RC”, a very rare 1981 Honda CB1100RB on eBay UK for 12k GBP. Awesome!

Next up from Dan is this Kawasaki ZX7 on our Facebook page.

Dan also spotted this 1994 Honda VFR400 for sale in Colorado for $5k. Thanks Dan!

Check out this 93 works Ducati 888 spotted by Pelayo in Spain! He writes, “This one is special. That bike is a 888 works Ducati from 93 that was used by Dani Amatriain (former Lorenzo´s manager) to try win the Spanish superbike national (lot of money at this moment from this rider). The bike was so dominant at european championship but at the end the spanish title went to a private RC30 from former 500 privateer Lopez Mella. I remember watching it raced also at world SBK at Jarama.”

James recently posted his Honda MC21 NSR250 in our Classifieds area for $7500. Good luck with sale!

Erik emailed us to alert us to his 1985 Honda NS250R for sale in Denver for $3500. Good luck with the sale!

Next from John is the 94 Yamaha YZF750. It looks very complete, has receipts, and even the toolkit is still there. Just $3000 in Chicago.

From Pete we have this very low miles 2002 Moto Guzzi Le Mans for just $7k in Montana. Love the colors!

From Sébastien we have this rather rare bird, a 1980 Honda Segale 1000. If you can provide information on this bike, leave a comment below!

Mike sends us this spotting in Los Angeles, a 2006 Derbi GPR125 for $6k.

Have a good morning all!

Rare Honda: 1992 Honda VFR400 NC30

For Sale: 1992 Honda VFR400 NC30

This Honda VFR400 – better known as a NC30 – might be going to a new home soon. The new owner will be a lucky man (or woman) indeed! Stated to be fully original and in “museum quality” condition, this bike has just over 9,000 miles on the clock and is purported to be a stone, stock example of the breed. Unfortunately the pictures offered with this auction are way too small to be of value, but this is still a very interesting auction.

The NC30 is one of the more searched bikes on the RSBFS website. Next to the 250cc and 500cc smokers, the 400cc class is next in line when it comes to a rabid fan base. There have been many arguments regarding the relative merits of the NC30 vs FZR400 or even the GSX-R400. In the end, the upshot is the same: these are bikes with 600cc capable frames, brakes and suspension, but weigh in much less than the larger bikes. The 400cc mills are potent (especially at 12K+ revs!), and these are often coveted for trackday bikes for this reason.

From the seller:
Pristine Honda 400cc sport bike that is a blast to ride because of its smaller physical size and high revving engine. Japan-market model not imported into the U.S (speedo in Km = 14,773). Does have a clear Florida title. 100% stock with no modifications from OEM. Bike is part of a museum collection. Bike was “put away” 5 years ago by a certified Honda mechanic with 40 years in the business – Correct fluids drained, tank and exhaust system fogged with oil, all joints and cables lubed, etc. (note; there is no battery in this bike but it is easy to get one). All you need to do is put in a battery, gas up, and fire it up to go. Few unmolested NC30s with a U.S. title exist and none at this low price.

Aside from the tiny photos, this bike has a lot going for it. Apparently other bidders think so as well. While the reserve has not yet been met, the current bid is up to $4,050 and the BIN is set for an even $6k. When you look at some of the more used NC30s that have passed through these pages and brought in $4,300 or higher, those numbers do not seem that out of line. Of course it all hinges on the condition of the ride. The words sound good, but we would love to see more pictures!

This video is not of the same bike, but gives you a little better idea of a similar make/model, including sound. Love the sound of those gear driven cams!
