Opinion: why Honda will make an RVF1000

In next week's MCN, industry expert Ben Purvis explains why he believes Honda is laying plans to bring back the RVF name on a new 1000cc V4-engined superbike. Find a used Honda motorcycle for sale Just like the RVF750R (RC45), the new bike would be a race-oriented machine, set above the Fireblade in the firm's range and offering a new platform...

Sounds right! If we think back Honda was successful when Honda built a "race bike" first "street bike" second they were extremely good for years.  However I think in recent years they went the street or consumer first bike way and suffered on the track. Economically its a tight rope! Especially when you have the old saying " Win on Sunday sell on Monday" mindset. Personally I hope they build it, Take A CHANCE HONDA. The more competition the more viewers the more potential buyers and riders. HECK maybe you can get CASTROL to sponsor it again with the green white and red colors and 111 and 45 racing numbers LOL!

We live in niche market times

and this type of machine from the flying wing is long overdue. We've heard such rumours for a long time also. When is Honda going to build a RC211 for the road etc etc. Such a machine would be a very worthy successor the the famed RVF / RC30 / RC45 lineage. As Agent55 pointed out the 81mm bore part is nonsense. That is a pure road engine. The bottom end (nor the single cam top end for that matter!) will not from the basis of a new litre hypersports machine. Bring it on though Honda. There a wealth of well heeled deep pocketed individuals who'd snap such a machine up in no time. Nice mockup too. All modern machines should have their mufflers tucked away in the belly pan in this manner because the things they hang off the side are absolutely horrendous - each and every one of them!

well i for one am saving for my shotgun.... so i can rob the bank and fork out the £25k price tag it would have.. lets hope it looks like this pic, oh and is actualy good and actually made! i seem to recall MCN bragging about a new VFR which turned out to be the lame tourer, for a good 4-5 years before one ever actually materialised.. to lame headlines of MCN TOLD YOU FIRST WE ARE SOO DAMN GOOD!  yeah right bang on about one thing for 4 years and eventually another V4 that looked nothing like what MCN kept drawing materialised i wont hold my breath on this one! with current exchange rates and £9k 600's and £11k thou's the fact is any real RC30/RC45 proper HRC bike would be at least £25k and that would be making them much profit.

RC 30X RVF.......

Not a bad mock up. Noticed they've used MV wheels.

Now then,what about price to kick off......? £20-25,000 plus the ubiquitous three different tuning kits from HRC costing between £10,000-£20,000 each.

Only for the rich me thinks.......

As for the NSR 500 someone mentioned,Honda were going too produce a bike like that back in 98'?

However,they waited too see if the BIMOTA V-DUE would succeed first before venturing down that  road and well,the rest is history.......

It may be ranked higher than the blade but I'll be keeping my trusted blade as I'm sure that I won't be able to afford it!!  Sweet bike though, may be, if there are any about in 5-10 years I may be seen on one!
