Less than 30 left: Honda RVF750 RC45

MCN, 09 November 2012 16:33

With more examples currently on a SORN (25) than there are licensed for road use (12), the RVF750 – arguably the 1990s superbike – is apparently an endangered species. There’s no denying its V4 motor is the star of the show, a hand-crafted statement of excellence, but for the money (north of £18,000 in 1994), it’s fair to say that prospective ...
