The best bike ever built, no doubt. The list highlights only some of its successes ..and most are championships, not races. As a road bike too, it's a jewel. I've owned one eight years, and I've never even had a bulb blow on it. It starts first time every time - often after standing for months - and it runs like a Swiss watch. It's the most capable two-wheeler I've ever owned or ridden. Buy one whilst they're still affordable!

Likely they could re-release this, and sell thousands of them.

Much more character than pretty much anything out there.

Agreed!!!!!

Makes you wonder why anyone would buy a new bike for $30,000 (provided it isn't your only bike), when you could buy an RC30. 5 years later the new one is worth less then half and the RC30 up by 50%.

I know thousands of them were produced, so they really are not rare. But unlike the other homogolations of that period with significantly less produced, they look unique to that model. (Ie. ZX7R looks similar to the ZX7, 0W01 looks like the FZR750, GSXR-R looks similar to the GSXR)

Maybe the most recognizable sport bike of all time. With the 916 in second. (Debatable for sure)

Cheers

Around 3000 RC30s were produced, but most had a hard life so I doubt even half of these remain. I've seen only one other 'in the metal' during the eight years I've owned mine (..and this one was trailered to a classic show I attended on my MV). I think most knowledgeable enthusiasts know the difference between the pseudo 'limited editions' produced these days simply as a marketing exercise, and the real deal. The RC was - and is - the real deal, and because of it prices will continue to soar. A decade from now good RC30s will command stratospheric prices. You've bought yours at just the right time!

I've not ridden a Duc 916, but I've ridden the RC30 many times 'back to back' with its erstwhile stable-mate, the Duc SP4. To say the RC is the better bike is to understate the truth: it simply knocks the Duc into a cocked hat in all respects - and this is despite the ££££ I spent attempting to 'improve' the 888 in order to have it compete. On anything other than smooth, bump-free surfaces, it would be left in the Honda's wake.

Sorry but I have to disagree with the rose coloured glasses crowd. Oh, donít get me wrong I loved my 1990 US spec RC30 but, it wasnít the be all, end all of super bikes right out of the box.
First off, with less than 2300 miles it spun two main bearings. In researching the problem I found five other bikes which suffered the same fate including the one seen on the cover of Motorcyclist Magazine. The stock suspension, especially the rear was woefully lacking. The back end would squat under hard acceleration which in turn slowed the steering. The stock rotors warped, changing the front plugs was a nightmare. The air pollution controls and that stupid dent in the stock exhaust robbed horsepower not to mention that 18 inch wheels (and therefore sticky tires) were on the way out.
On the street I was always third behind my buddies, one riding a OW01 and the other a ZXR750.
The biggest problem these days is the lack of spares especially the upper block.
