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...

What a beautiful machine,its a few years since i've been able to say that about a Honda,but i suppose it'll be priced way out of the pockets of any normal bikers,which is a real pity.

Pointless......thats the best thing!

90% of motorcycles are pointless, but we still ride them because it's fun. If Mr HRC wants to build this then i think thats fantastic. If Mr Yamaha wants to build a YZR M1 road bike, then yes please bring it on. Exotic bikes make me want to visit the bike show, or buy MCN and yes if somebody pulls into my local bike meet on a Desmosedici, i will walk over and look at it.

10 years ago sports bikes were too powerfull for road riding, but we still bought and loved them. Any special, exotic WSBK or GP derived missile made available to the public is ok by me. It's exciting and thats why i ride and love bikes.

What about the CB1100R?

It looks fantastic, I hope Honda build it and that it ends up looking as good as the artists impression.

But in todays world of petrol at 125p per litre and road surfaces so potholed they resemble a motocross course, what use is it as a road bike?

What happened with the CB1100R mock-up that was shown a few years ago? That would have been a fantasic road bike, so what happened to it?

An update please MCN!

In the pipeline

I believe there are a few bikes due from honda over the next two yrs, dont hold your breadth for a new blade until earliest next year, 2012.

I aint too sure about an RVF1000 but who knows.

Purvis points out that the VFR1200's cylinder bore is 81mm,
which is also the maximum bore dimension laid down by the
FIM in its 2012 MotoGP regulations.
So by reducing the VFR's stroke to 48.5mm, Honda have a
perfect 1000cc V4 to compete in MotoGP.

The vfr12’s cases are wayyy to big to base a race bike on.
No way in he** can you destroke a vfr12 and race it.
