Poll: What do you want from the RCV road bike?

Tetsuo Suzuki, the boss of HRC wants to hear from MCN readers about what they want the promised V4 1000cc RCV road bike to be like, and how much they think it should cost. One of the internal debates within Honda is just exactly what form the bike should take. One camp wants to make the bike as near as possible...

Honda produce Bikes that are Reliable and Functional that do the very thing they are built for extremely efficiently. You want soul and passion ? try something Italian. Honda's Icons are amazing RC30's, VFR's, CBR's, Blade's, Bird's, SP's,SuperDream's,(Joking) Long may they continue.

Honda

If honda wants something special it must have something special.... 200bhp bike's are already for sale zx-10r s1000rr.    So Honda must do 220 bhp. better electronic aids then the panigale and i say it must look like the rc213v

 

in 2014 Yamaha will bring 200bhp

Suzuki wil bring 200 bhp

 

maybe a little more say 225 bhp

MotoGP Recplica

First and foremost, this needs to be a MotoGP replica, not a WSB replica. Which means the same V4 configuration and body style of the MotoGP bike. Not the WSB Fireblade shown. This bike needs to be four bikes. Let me explain. The First bike, a complete race ready, track only bike that any privateer and purchase to race or any rich guy who wants a very exclusive track day bike. Try to price it well under the £100,000 Ducati 1199 RS13 effort. It should be offered with custom paint scheme option and have better parts support and reliability then the last oval piston, one off parts effort of old. And it should have the HRC ECU package with it. Oh, and by the way, MotoGP should allow two ECU packages to choose from; the Magneti Morelli and the HRC. The HRC ECU should be compatible with all V4 makes on the track. That should be the deal. The next two bikes: The first is a V4 on par with the Fireblade but obviously with the same configuration as the RC213 V4 engine and MotoGP Body shape. The engine and electronics need to be better then the VFR 1200 engine and the bike should come with a few HRC paint schemes. The other is a limited addition, hopped up and blinged out, replica bike with significantly more horse power, incredible electronics package, and the replica colors of both the Repsol and San Carlos bikes. This should be the collectors choice. Try to get it under the £40,000 the Desmo was charging with much better reliability and parts support. The last one is for me. A naked version that is a kick ass, hooligan bike that is good for nothing more then getting a ticket for being a total twat. Oh, and I want to put bags on it and tour the continent. So Honda, here’s the deal. My next bike purchase, in order of preference is: Eric Buell Racing street bike, Motus V4 Sport Tour, and Ducati Street Fighter. Make me a bike that I HAVE to buy over these other three. And I will buy it.

It'd have to look like the race bike but I'd imagine that would be a given and kind of obvious really.

I'd also want 200bhp at the rear wheel, top quality active suspension, top spec brakes, race spec traction control, ABS & a kerb weight of 180kg. Plus the ability to switch all the rider aids off if I want.

Just for shits & giggles I would also like the keyless credit card style programmable ignition found on the NSR250 in the early 90's, although maybe in a more modern USB stick format.

If BMW can do the HP4 for 20k, Honda should be able to do the above for around 30k but to tell the truth the skies the limit so I don't really think price is an issue for those who will buy one, 30, 40, 50k? It's kind of irrelevant.

In reality 99.9% of us haven't got a hope of getting one & so 20 or 50 grand makes no difference to me as either way I'll never have one but I would love to see what the possibilities are.

Given a 1199 tricolore costs for around 28,000 pounds, i'd be ready to pay that much for a road going Moto GP bike.

Trust Honda, no mean it

When I was riding a Honda very very very fast and the bike was getting out of shape , I always used to say in my head "Trust Honda" and it worked, you need to bring this to the new bike, the feeling that this is not a new thing but an evo of everything good before it important. The engine must have real drive from it lower / mid ranges and not just top end scream, the engine electrics devices should bring back the feel of soft carb control, so you get that sucking sound of air going into the engine before it starts pulling hard coming out of a corner. anyway
