The Honda RVF750, also known as the RC45, was a legendary homologation bike and successor to the popular RC30. Though it was sold between ’94 and ’99, the US only got the ’94 model.
The RC45 overcame some initial teething problems to hhave plenty of success in the racing world: 1997 Superbike World Championship, 1995 and 1998 US AMA Superbike Championships, the 1996 Daytona 200, and plenty more. One of the rarest motorcycles ever built, just 700 were created world wide (200 the first year for homologation purposes, 500 afterwards for Japanese customers) and it’s estimated that only about 20 remain in the states. Some consider this bike to the best Superbike ever built, thanks in part to the fact that it made over 190 horsepower in race trim (the US spec was 101, European was 118).
