1992 Honda VFR400R NC30 Titled & Registered In California

This is a fantastic looking VFR400R in California!  Located in San Francisco, California is a 1992 Honda VFR400R NC30 with 15,500 miles.  The seller states that this bike has never been down or raced, is in excellent mechanical and very good cosmetic condition.  The bike features Two-Brothers SS exhaust with a carbon silencer with a jet kit to match–the rear stand shown is also included.  The asking price of $6,500 is a bit higher than what we’ve been seeing but, this one does look to be in above average condition and, I wouldn’t call this outrageous at all heading into summer.  See a listing of the NC30’s we’ve seen here.

These VFR400R’s are some of the lightest wight and best handling four strokes you can buy on the used market.  They go around corners like any bike should, are lightweight like a bike should be, and look like an RC30–which a bike should.  We’ve seen these 400cc bikes pretty regularly but, if one pops up in your area you should absolutely go down and take a look at it and, unfortunately for your other bikes, you’ll probably come back with it!  See the for sale ad with extra-large photos here.  See the for sale thread on BayAreaRidersForum here.

1990 Honda VFR400R NC30 In California

Here is a VFR400R located in California!  Located in San Mateo, California is a 1990 Honda VFR400R.  The seller states that this bike has been “…brought up to EPA and DOT standards.”  At a cost of $8,000.  However, registration hasn’t been renewed since 2007.  It should be known that, in California, you’re required to pay all back licensing fees when registration is finally renewed; that means by, you, the buyer should you choose to keep it in California.  For being a 1990, this bike has a different headlight and tail piece.  Does anyone know the reasoning for that–certain market pieces?  The bike also features a non-stock paint scheme.  The asking price is $5,000; which is higher than we’ve seen for California titled NC30’s but, it would be interesting to know if this bike is completely legal without any loopholes or grandfathering in it’s past.  See this bike on Craigslist here.

Honda VFR400R NC30 In California For $3,700

This looks to be a very nice NC30 at a very good price!  Located in Azusa, California is a Honda VFR400R with no year or miles listed.  This ad is quite sparse and only lists that this has new tires and runs like new.  I’m going to assume that this is titled as it looks to have a plate on it but the ad doesn’t state if it is or not.  The asking price of $3,700 is very good–if it is titled.  These little VFR’s have outstanding handling because of their lightweight and can be loads of fun for cheap.  See the bike on Craigslist here.

1992 Honda VFR 400 NC 30 for sale

1992 Honda VFR 400 NC30 for sale in San Francisco, CA. John, the owner, asked us to help him try and sell his beloved motorcycle, so here it is.

Listed at $5,000.00 this is one of the cheaper priced VFR/RVF’s we’ve had posted on RSBFS. It has 10,241 miles on the clock and it does have that elusive California registration. Typically, we see these in $6,000 to $8,000 range especially when they are ready for the street. Just in case you aren’t familiar with the NC30 I’ll give you some background on it. The NC30 is sibling to the world famous RC30. They share some similar components such as the gawd awful 18″ rear rim, conventional fork legs, the stunningly smooth gear driven V4 engine and single sided swing arm.

It is in great running condition and is extremely rare here in the USA …especially legal and insured and registered. These bikes are preferred by race enthusiasts as they are built for the track. The red line starts at 14500 rpm. The bike has big brakes stock …all around. The power band starts to kick in around 9000 rpm. The seat height is very low and it is perfect for people that are not tall. This bike is well taken care of new brakes and rotors all around, new oil and filter, fresh brake fluid, new air filter and plugs. The odometer shows a very low 16519 km on it and it runs great. The tires are in good shape and are Bridgestone Battle Axe. The front forks have been upgraded/rebuilt by Lindeman Engineering (LE) in Campbell, CA

If you’re in the market for a VFR 400 NC30 on the cheap your boat….uh…I mean cycle has come in. You can view the CL ad here and contact the seller via email.

1989 VFR 400R NC30 for sale $4,000!


Update:  This bike is now on ebay  as of 10.30.09

This may very well be the shortest post I’ve ever had because I can’t get any info on this bike.  I’ve tried contacting the seller, but didn’t get a response.  It is still posted on the WERA BBS Bikes for Sale as of 10.24.09, so I assume it is still up for grabs. 




This was originally posted for sale at $6,000, but never sold.  From what I can tell it has been listed for about a year and the seller is now giving it away for $4,000, which I think is an absolute steal.  It is listed as a grey market import so it probably doesn’t have a title.  The owner says it is flawless and is a living room Queen.  He goes on to state that it is against his will to have it for sale, but has no choice.  So take that for what’s worth.  This bike looks to be in perfect condition.  I love the smaller bikes and this one has me smiling ear to ear.
