Video: Guy Martin on the Honda RC174

You might have thought getting the opporunity to ride the new Honda Fireblade was enough to sway Guy Martin into signing for Honda earlier this year, but according to the man himself one of the big factors was getting the opportunity to ride the six-cylinder Honda RC174.

Guy finally got a chance to ride the 245cc racing machine at the Motorcycle Grand National event at Castle Combe this past weekend and one spectator recorded Guy’s lap on the distinctive sounding machine.


If you’ve never heard the iconic six-cylinder Honda, plug your headphones in and turn the volume up. It’s without doubt one of the greatest noises in motorcycling. The cameraman continued filming long after Guy had disappeared out of sight, but the noise from the classic machine never goes away.
