Sold between in 2000 and 2006 in two different versions, the RC51 has gone down as one of the most legendary motorcycles to ever come out of Honda, well-deserving of the “RC” designation that’s graced other famous Hondas like the RC30, RC40, and RC45. It was Honda’s take on the V-Twin replica racer, beating Ducati at it’s own game with multiple World Superbike Championships and a AMA Championship.
With 133 horsepower, 71 ft-lb of torque, and when equipped with aftermarket pipes, one of the greatest exhaust sounds I’ve ever heard, it was an absolute gem. Cycle World thinks this is one of the best used bikes you can buy.
This example (VIN: JH2SC45311M100572) has roughly 12,500 miles and it’s equipped with a Leo Vince exhaust, Sargent seat, steering stabilizer, and wave rotors. The seller states that it runs like a dream but it needs a new battery and rear tire.
