Good Things Come In Small Packages: 1989 Honda NC30 VFR400R

The Honda RC30 needs zero introduction.  The looks and performance are the stuff of legend.  As more and more collectors compete for a limited number of bikes on the market the prices inevitably rise.  We often hear enthusiasts in the hobby lament this as it means they might not get a chance to experience the machine.  The wonderful thing about this hobby is that even though specific models might be rare, there are always alternatives to explore.  In this case it the RC30s baby bother, the NC30.

The 400cc class of sport bikes from the late 80s and early 90s offer some amazing technology, packaging and overall fantastic riding experiences.  These were not built as the budget, or entry level motorcycles of today.  These were built to fit into engine size restricted classes and to offer buyers real performance.  Most offerings remained as JDM options.  It was determined that the US and European markets would not see the value in these smaller bikes.  Hindsight has told us that this was probably true.  The 600cc class is dead in the USA and most modern sport bike riders are only focused on absolute power and speed.

Today these are available for import and are being brought over for collectors and riders alike.  Known for extremely high redlines (some north of 17,500 RPM) and sublime handling it is no wonder many buyers are taking advantage of this opportunity.  Parts availability should be of little issue as Honda is very good at supporting vintage motorcycles.  For the price point it would be hard to find something more unique, reliable and with a usable performance envelope.

From The Seller’s eBay Listing:

Honda’s Street-legal race bike. This exquisite 1989 Honda VFR400R NC30 has been thoroughly sorted and is a fabulous rider. Runs incredibly strong, no smoke or leaks. 100% of the electrical and lighting work. See videos below! A fully documented restoration was performed a year ago, and has been on museum display since. Clean title, in hand. Original exhaust is excellent and free of any scuffs or dents. Brand new battery, fluids, and tires. 48k kilometers (30k miles) A wonderful collector piece of Honda’s HRC racing history.

The VFR 400 series were explicitly a scaled-down version of Honda’s racing RC30 models and only intended for the Japanese domestic market. The VFR400, like the RC30, used straight-cut gears to drive its camshafts, which made a characteristic whine that became associated with pure speed.

With a redline of 14,500 RPM, the top speed was 130 MPH. Riders loved the NC30 for its razor-sharp handling and its wide spread of power, which had plenty of torque without the peakiness of most highly tuned fours.

 

This bike looks to represent a great opportunity for someone that wants a bike that is equally good to look at as it is to ride.  Relatively high mileage will mean riders are the buyers, not matter how many time the seller uses the word collector in the listing.  That is not a dig as these are wonderful out on the road.  The 400cc market is very hot right now because more and more riders are embracing the slow bike fast ethos.  It will get even hotter when the new Kawasaki 400cc four cylinder sport bike hits showrooms.   The Buy It Now price of just under $12k seems reasonable for the condition and current market.  A buyer would be wise to press the seller for more details on the mentioned restoration as that could potentially be a great selling feature.

Instant Collection: Five 400cc sport bikes from the 1990s

The 400cc sport bike set has been a hot topic on the pages of RSBFS, and were in fact part of the early focus of the site when it was entirely dedicated to finding grey market listings for sport bikes not originally imported into the United States. From those humble beginnings RSBFS grew to encompass the best of the rare and exotic, while continuing to harbor a soft spot for imports. Today’s collection of five members the 400cc club – one from each of the Big Four (plus a bonus Honda)- is definitely worth a look, even if some of the details are sparse and the bikes are located far, far away from US shores. The lineup:

Five 400cc sport bikes from the 1990s for sale on eBay

Honda VFR400R

Honda CBR400RR

Kawasaki ZXR400

Yamaha FZR 400SP

Suzuki GSX-R400SP

From the seller:
Collection of all the 90s 400cc sportbikes. All bikes are registered Hungarian bikes, with clean history. Will be sold with all necessary papers to register elswhere!

It is a one time opportunity to buy a collection like this!

These bikes are listed in a package deal on eBay in a Buy It Now (or best offer) format for $19,500 USD. Details are sparse, but as RSBFS writer and collector William notes: “The bikes are appealing, the package is interesting at that price point and the pictures are solid…a deal is always worth exploring.” You must admit that this flock looks great together. And given that the US shores has seen scant appearances of 400cc serious bikes between the 1980s Fizzer 400 and the more recent Ninja/CBR/R3/KTM offerings in 300-400cc sizes, these are undeniably rare in the US of A. You can check out all of the details here. Good Luck!!

Featured Listing – 1997 Honda VFR750F!

Update 10.17.2021: SOLD IN ONE DAY to an RSBFS Reader! Congratulations to buyer and seller!

Seller testimonial:

Hey Dan just wanted to let you know I got a bunch of guys (legitimate) called today 1st day on your site. Receiving a deposit shortly. People all over the country. I had somewhat little response on cycletrader for the week it’s been on there. Kudos! I’m relatively new to raresprtbikesforsale so I wasn’t sure how it would go but clearly you have a lot of followers. And you wrote the article up real nice too which helps. Thanks again.

If you have a bike for sale that would benefit from this kind of exposure, contact us for a Featured Listing. -dc

The Honda VFR750F is an icon. Through 10+ years of constant production, evolution and improvement, the VFR gained notoriety for doing everything well. This is not a bike that just ticks one of the “most” buckets; it is not the cheapest, it is not the lightest, it is not the most powerful, it is not the most race-like, it is not the fastest. But for those that actually prefer to ride, the VFR has been a constant companion offering good looks, great performance and legendary reliability. From the clean sheet beginnings way back in 1986, the VFR steadily improved to what can only be considered as close to motorcycling perfection as possible.

Featured Listing – 1997 Honda VFR750F

The VF line was born around the V-4 engine configuration. And while the earliest of the VFs utilized a timing chain to invoke the 4 valves per cylinder, the evolution quickly moved to uber-reliable gear driven cams such as are found on the RC30 and RC45 racers. The same goes for the race-bred single-sided swingarm, as well as the aluminum, twin-spar frame. And if you cannot see a profile resemblance to the famous NR750 perhaps you need to check your pulse. But the VFR is not a racer – it has all of the DNA necessary to become so, but it knows its place in the world as an incredibly capable all-rounder. Devoid of the “character” flaws of other exotics that require the rider to make concessions, the VFR can commute, canyon carve, rip it up at a track day, and take you to points far and away as a sport tourer. I challenge you to name any other platform that has this breadth of capability.

From the seller:
Mint condition, close to museum quality, vfr 750. Brand new Dunlop tires. 18,250 miles. Oil changed 3 months ago with amsoil full synthetic 10/40. Oil has about 800/1k miles on it as do the tires. Bone stock not a single thing modified. Only things not original are tires, battery and gold chain. Bike starts up instantly, choke works perfectly. The bike idles perfect. Runs strong as new. It’s apparent to me by the condition of the bike that it was well maintained in every way since new. Turn key bike that needs nothing. I ride the bike casually on nice days, miles may increase a little. Bike comes with a cover. Stored in my garage and not ever driven in bad weather. Please call if interested 856-405-7830. I’m not answering emails. The towel under the center stand is there to protect my new garage floor from being scraped. The bike has no leaks at all.

Asking Price: $5,500

For just a touch over 8 grand the 1997 you could walk into a showroom and ride out on what is arguably the best motorcycle of all time (don’t take my word for it – check out how often the Interceptor has shown up on annual “best of” lists). But given its less rare status as a mass-marketed UJM, the market has yet to come back around to equalizing value for money. That makes the last era of the VFR750F – such as today’s Featured Listing – an outright bargain in the used bike market. This is really the pinnacle of Honda engineering and quality, at a price well below that of comparable bikes. With the capabilities of more modern bikes without the confusing and annoying electronic gadgetry, this is as pure as riding can get.

Today’s 1997 Honda VFR750F Featured Listing is a pristine example of the breed. Obviously well cared for, this bike has traveled fewer than 800 miles per year on average. And it looks the part. Check out how clean this bike appears, despite the 24 years that have passed since it first sat in a showroom. Stone stock the way Honda intended, the plastics look flawless. There is no corrosion on the wheels, the forks, or the brake/clutch master cylinder reservoirs (common areas to show weather-induced flaws). No fender hack here, no Pep Boys shorty turn signals, no superfluous stickers, no color-tinted windscreen, no flashy loud pipe – nothing that the engineers and assembly line personnel at Honda did not fit to the bike. That is clearly worth the price of admission, as finding these models in this sort of condition is not easy. If you are looking for a neo classic – a bike that will age gracefully, ride comfortably and last forever, make a deal. Good Luck!!

Featured Listing – 1992 Honda VFR750F

Update 11.2.2021: This bike has SOLD! Congratulations to buyer and seller! -dc

When you look back at the bikes you could have owned – or maybe did own, but let slip away – many will dream of the unobtainable collector machines built in small numbers and high prices. But when you look back on the bikes you could have owned to *ride*, then the list changes significantly. Gone are the torture racks, the rolling stock full of NOS parts never to be found again, or the odd and unique (but not very practical) imports. Instead you would look back at the best all around bikes in history – and come to a singular conclusion: the Honda VFR750F. Here is a bike that can do it ALL – from canyon riding and track days to touring, exploring and commuting. The VFR has long been a do everything exceptionally well type of mount. And while we can nostalgically look at some of the examples floating around the internet, the thought of somebody’s used up bike is not the stuff of dreams. Enter this stunning 1992 model VFR750F in the more rare darker VFR livery. What you are looking at is what Cycle World called “…the best all-around motorcycle in the business…” that has been refurbished to a very high specification.

Featured Listing: 1992 Honda VFR750F

The VFR series was a home run for Honda, and spawned many generations and a couple of truly interesting models. Based around a 90 degree V-4 with four valve heads, the VFR has been a constant winner in reviews, in showrooms, and at the racetrack. Even the mighty RC30 and RC45 models were derivatives of this family line, if that gives you any indication of the performance potential that was engineered into the basic bones. The 1992 model is an ideal representation of the second generation bikes, with aluminum frame and classic single sided swingarm. Expect an even 100 horsepower in stock configuration, enabling the VFR to go as well as it looks. There is enough there to keep up with all but the most berserker sport bikes in the canyons, and the best part is the cushy ride to-fro the happy sporting grounds. Pound for pound, it is difficult to imagine a bike better suited to everything we tend to do with a two wheeled device in our stables. If you could only have one bike for the rest of your riding days….

From the seller:
Since this is an unusual color for a VFR, I’ve started calling this one “Darth Viffer” 😊 Seems most VFR’s are red.

Up for sale is a 1992 Honda VFR750F with just over 25k miles on the clock. It is almost 100% stock and original, and includes two rare OEM accessories – the matching solo seat cowl and center stand. The bike has just undergone a thorough mechanical and cosmetic refresh, including the following that were completed before I bought it:
Fork seals/oil
Michelin Pilot Road 4 tires
New battery
New voltage regulator/rectifier

Brian considers this a complete OCD mechanical/cosmetic restoration – and I will let his words and pictures tell the story further. Obviously there is much, much more here than your average wash and wax!

More from the seller:
Over the winter, the following maintenance was performed:
Complete carburetor overhaul – ultrasonic cleaning, new float valves, and new viton o-rings/gaskets.
Carb synch performed with Vacuummate electronic synchronizer.
New carb intake boots.
Valve clearances were checked, all within tolerance.
Compression checked – 1) 188 2) 192 3) 198 4) 202.
New NGK spark plugs.
OEM Honda oil filter, Rotella T6 5W-40 synthetic oil.
OEM Honda Type 2 coolant.
Air filter cleaned (Uni filter replacement)
New OEM thermostat. Radiator and reserve tank completely cleaned and flushed.
Cleaned commutator and brushes on the radiator fan.
Verified output of charging system, cleaned and dielectric grease applied to critical connections.
Replaced two plug caps due to higher than spec resistance readings.
Steering head bearings replaced with tapered roller kit.
Rear suspension completely disassembled and cleaned, all bearings cleaned and greased.
Rear axle and bearings thoroughly cleaned and greased, replaced the double row ball bearing.
Replaced the chain and sprockets with OEM gearing. RK GXW chain and JT sprockets.
Complete disassembly and ultrasonic cleaning of all brake and clutch parts. Front and rear calipers, clutch slave cylinder and both brake and clutch master cylinders.
Replaced the fuel pump with a Facet electric pump (OEM pumps are obsolete). The replacement pump incorporates a check valve and shuts of fuel flow when not powered.
Rebuilt fuel petcock with a kit from NRP carbs in the UK.
All bodywork removed, cleaned and paint polished. Touched up where needed (mostly some nicks on the wheels and some scratches on the front fender).
All plastic and rubber parts treated with 303 aerospace protectant.
All fasteners removed were ultrasonically cleaned, and some polished.

More from the seller:
This is a true “no stone unturned” mechanical and cosmetic refresh, I was originally planning on keeping this one. Due to recent events and acquiring yet another VFR project I now have three 3rd gen VFR’s so I’ve decided to let this one go. I really want to find a decent home for this one, it’s taken a lot of work to get it up to its current mechanical state. There are still a few very minor imperfections on the bike and it’s not 100% original and OEM, but I guarantee you will not find a cleaner or more mechanically sorted VFR outside of the Barber Museum.

Some of the pictures show the bike with a Vance & Hines SS2R slip-on. Others have the stock exhaust can. The buyer will have the choice between the two, but both are not included (I need one for the other VFR I have in the works).

Price: Asking $5,500

Nobody here at RSBFS is going to tell you that a 1992 Honda VFR750F is the collector’s bucket list bike in terms of long term monetary value. But if you ride what you own – and ride a lot – you could scarcely do better than some of the under-appreciated models in the motorcycling spectrum. The VFR is definitely one of them, and I challenge you to find a better example of the breed than this beautiful specimen. It is completely stock, has all the OEM bits and is mechanically nearly new – making it an exceptional find in today’s market. If you’ve never had one – or if you did and miss what you had, Good Luck!!

V4 Cruise Missile: 1993 Honda VFR750 Interceptor

The Honda VFR750 never fails to pop up in forum posts and old magazine articles seeking to name the best all-around motorcycle available. Inevitably, there’s some dentist from Portland who chimes in with 43 photos of his immaculate VFR and a long tale about how he’s put 175,000 miles on it from new and only ever changed the oil and tires. It’s a fact of Internet life, and it gets pretty old. But, if you spend any time at all around the bikes, you’ll discover that those Aerostitch-clad Boomers are on to something. These bikes are, quite simply, phenomenal.

1993 Honda VFR750 for sale on eBay

Of course, I am biased. A red ’97 model sits in my garage, and I sought it out after reading too many dentists telling me how awesome it was. They were right. The gear driven cams make a gorgeous whine on top of the small-block lope of the V4, the power is electric and the handling, while not exactly sprightly, is impressive for something so large and perfectly stable.

This 1993 Honda VFR750 appears to have been babied by one of the aforementioned healthcare professionals, and shows very nicely in white. The way the single-sided swingarm shows off that magnificently ’90s rear wheel is enough to give you visions of Joey Dunlop. With 15,000 original miles, a next to new set of tires and new spark plugs, battery and fuel filter, there is no reason this thing shouldn’t be down for a cross-country road trip tomorrow.

From the eBay listing:

Up for sale is my VERY clean VFR-750. Ultra low miles, adult owned and maintained. Never ridden in the rain, always garage kept on a battery tender when not riding. Has 480 miles on a new set of Michelin Pilots, new spark plugs, new fuel filter, battery is 1 year old, carbs were cleaned and sync’d, K & N air filter, gutted Yoshimura slip on muffler. Always washed after every ride, oil and filter changed every 1,000 miles using Honda oil and filter.

With a hollowed-out Yosh pipe, this thing will make your neighbors hate you, but how could they ever hate this bike?

Even legends have parents. They don’t often get lauded for their offspring’s exploits, but their influence is indelible, and without their genes, what would our heroes be? The 1986 Honda VFR750F is a minor legend in its own right, but its offspring — the Honda RC30 and RC45, are the beasts everyone remembers. But in 1986, Honda was hungry to catapult itself past the other Japanese marques in the sportbike arms race, and to cure its new V4s reputation for weak valve trains.

The VFR750F delivered. Under Fred Merkel, Wayne Rainey and Bubba Shobert, the bikes cleaned up in AMA. And under a crew from Cycle World that included Nick Ienatsch and a motley crew of racers and journalists, blew the ’86 Suzuki GSXR750’s 24-hour speed record out of the water by nearly 20 mph. Follow the link to that story at the end of this writeup. You won’t regret it. The red-white-and-blue beasts achieved the feat thanks to an improved 105-horsepower 750cc V4 that represented a 20-horsepower gain over the Magnas and fixed reliability questions. The bikes were also something like 40 pounds lighter than the previous model.

Coupled with a roadrace-worthy suspension and wide, sticky tires, the VFR had the goods to take it to Yamaha and Suzuki.

This 1986 Honda VFR750F is in impeccable, low-mile shape, with a long list of recent mods and maintenance to make it even tastier. It sports a Yoshimura exhaust and an RC30-style front fender, among other improvements. Seller Joe spent a long time on his description, so we’ll let him take it away:

1986 Honda VFR750F

Honda collector for over 30 years. My recent focus has been V4 bikes of the 80s/90s, including both RC30/RC45. This is my second 1986 VFR750F, which I purchased in 2016. I bought this bike because of its low mileage and overall survivor condition. Plus, I really wanted one with a pipe. The videos don’t do the sound of this Yosh pipe justice. The bike has 11,357 miles. As you can see from the title, I’ve put less than 100 miles on the bike while freshening up a few things. I have over 20 bikes and like to work on them, but I don’t ride them enough, so it’s time for someone else to enjoy it.Upgrades – all done within the last 18 months: New Honda fuel pump (specific to this bike and $200 for part alone); New fuel filter; New choke cable; New Yuasa AGM battery; New Honda grips; New Metzeler rear tire (Metzeler front matches but older – see code); New DID x-ring chain with rivet; re-zinc’d rear sprocket; Cut down front fender to match race bikes/RC30, and painted to match (includes uncut stock front fender); Valve adjustment and carbs disassembled and ultrasonic cleaned and sync’d (see video – work done by Joe Nelson of VFR Dreams); Fresh oil and filter; New brake fluid front and rear; New clutch master fluid; Known blemishes: 20-25 tank “pimples”appeared over this last winter. Odd, because always stored in a heated garage. Scrapes on left rear cowl/tail. A few very small scratches on windscreen. Hairline crack on LH fairing (3/4”). Normal cracking on mirror arm. Clear title in my name. Includes factory shop manual. I do not have factory owners manual. 2 keys, including original stamped key and a Honda duplicate. Multiple videos show carb sync, cold start, fast idle, fast idle warm up with two other of my bikes. Asking $4000.

VFR750F 24-hour world record recap: https://www.motorcyclistonline.com/hondas-1986-vfr750f-interceptor/

While later sport-touring RC36 VFRs don’t command the same coin (somehow) as the earlier bikes, VFRs are still a bargain compared to a slab-side Gixxer in similar shape. For such a jewel of a machine in such gorgeous condition, the $4,000 asking price is almost a no-brainer.

Dorian Gray: 2005 Honda Interceptor in Silver

A lot of people consider the Honda RC30 and RC45 as the best Honda sportbikes to own but those are fully track oriented machines not really setup for daily use on the street.   Additionally much of the success of the RC bikes can be traced to the VFR V4 editions (and ironically much of the RC tech then found its way back into later Honda models such as the 800cc VFR).   Today’s post is a 2005 VFR 800 in a beautiful monochromatic silver and with 12,000 miles which for a VFR is barely broken in.

2005 Honda VFR800 on ebay

When Honda introduced its V4 streetbike configuration in the early 1980’s, the result wasn’t what the company expected.  Honda engineers deeply believed that a V4 engine would produce nearly optimum power and torque but problems arose with the camshafts in the larger displacement/700cc models.  Given the new technology of the V4 system it probably shouldn’t have been a surprise that there would be issues but what was surprising was the inability of Honda, a company that prided itself on its engineering ability, to find a quick resolution to the issue.   The VF700 received a mind-boggling 8 camshaft revisions in its first year alone and the VF series quickly earned a moniker of “chocolate camshaft – it melts in your hand!” with sales being drastically impacted in the following year.

Fortunately for Honda, the company was large enough that the issues with VF series wasn’t a make or break proposition but they still had to decided whether to keep working on the V4 design or walk away from the concept.  The later option was actually the financially safer choice; its what Suzuki would do with TL series and what Bimota wish they could have done with the V-Due.  But for Honda’s motorcycling division, the issue was more than just a financial decision; their reputation for engineering prowess was at stake.  Honda went back to the design board and the result was the 1986 VFR, a machine engineered to a detail that was unheard of previously.  Rumor has it that the VFR was so over engineered that Honda actually lost money on every one it sold but there is no arguing that the VFR restored the companies reputation as an engineering powerhouse with the VFR winning bike of the year in its first year.  Most impressively it kept winning its market segment year after year and was even anointed as “bike of the decade” for the 1990’s by CycleWorld.  Despite changes in displacement and technology the VFR line is still going strong.

NOTE:  An excellent history of the VFR lineup and the changes in each edition can be found here.

This particular VFR800 looks to be in amazing shape, although the silver color combined with the direct sunlight could potentially mask some small paint imperfections.  On the plus side the seller indicates a recent refresh including rubber and misc items.  On the negative side some frame sliders seem to be in place in some pics so its unclear as to how the bike has actually been used.  Also the seller does not indicate if the optional ABS that was available with this model is included on the bike.  This is an important question because while the VFR came standard with a linked braking system (which worked very well indeed), the VFR has a wet weight of over 500 pounds so having ABS was a major upgrade.

Here is what the seller has to say

  • New tires Michelin Pilot Power 2CT
  • New spark plugs
  • New brake pads
  • New K&N air filter
  • Fresh battery
  • Fresh oil every season.
  • All stock, except license plate mount. It was removed by the previous owner.
  • I have panniers Givi Monokey V35 for extra $500. They are barely used.

Admit it, those exhausts are cool and look great with the silver color scheme.

So is this 12,000 mile VFR worth the current asking price of $3,500 USD (extra for the hard luggage)?   While this generation of VFR will probably never appreciate as a collectors bike, if your intent is to actually ride your bikes then that price seems like a great deal.    Also the VFR is a renowned touring machine so this offers an opportunity for both at a low price.  Personally I think this would make an excellent every day rider for someone who already has their track bike or for someone who wants to move into longer distance riding without moving into the everything-but-the-fridge-goldwing segment.

Featured Listing – 1986 Honda VFR700F

Update 3.14.2018: SOLD in 2 Days! Congratulations to buyer and seller! -dc

VFR fans might remember this special 700F from last spring’s write-up.  Over the past year just a few hundred miles and a new starter are of note. 

The VFR700F was an interim model which ducked under a tariff limit on engine size, making a huge difference in MSRP from the VFR750F.  Performance was comparable and the model received two updates even though it was only imported for two years.  This edition is a late 1986 F2, with the angular console inkeeping with the times.

The F2 was a significant re-design from the 1983 introduction, and the entire engine was new in response to the update to the cam lubrication problem.  The frame was now a twin-spar aluminum, adding a sixth speed, air-adjustable forks and revised Pro-Link monoshock.  Still it was 81 hp pushing just over 500 lbs. wet, though the racing team did wonders with theirs – Fred Merkel won the AMA Superbike 1984-86 and was the new WSBK champion 1988-89.

This particular VFR was a rescue but looks like a show dog these days.  Fairings were repaired by plastic welding but are factory original.  Nice touches like the bronze powder-coated engine cases and up-to-date black wheels compete with knowledgeable fan updates like the 17-inch front wheel and shortened and cored mufflers ( with correct jetting ).  A lightening trim to the front fender shows the restorer’s expertise and sharp eye, and maybe a little nostalgia with the NOS tank emblem.  Check out the restoration blog – here – .

By now most VFR’s have half-again or twice as many miles, as they are a rider’s bike.  Most have never even heard about a restoration like this.  Renewed for another life, with its 2nd generation alloy chassis and stock paint and graphics, it could easily hold its own at a show or concours.  Owner Scott asks just $4,000.
