World's first customer Honda RC213V-S delivered to UK owner

1 of 3

John Brown, who owns and runs a Honda dealership in Manchester, is the first customer to take delivery of the ultra-exclusive Honda RC213V-S

Mr Brown took delivery of the machine just before Christmas day, and the bike will be added to his Honda collection, which includes a brand new RC30, SP-1, SP-2, CBR900RR Fireblade and VF1000F.

Mr Brown said: “When I first heard of this project I thought ‘when this happens I have to have one of these’. It is a truly amazing opportunity to own a piece of HRC racing history. As soon as it went on sale I registered my interest on the website, and when I received the call from Honda to say my order was accepted it was a very special day for me.

“I joined my family business as a 17-year old and have been a Honda dealer ever since. My dealership has been one of the top-three in the UK for many years and the bike will be great with my existing collection. I’d like to thank all the people at Honda for making this dream come true.”

At £150,000, the RC213V-S went on sale on July 13 2015 and further machines will be delivered to customers in the new year.
