Post Listing Update: This RVF400 sold for $8,600 after 46 bids on eBay in San Jacinto, California.
MCN called the Honda RVF400 (also known as the NC35) “a pin-up race replica that had sports bike fans dribbling down their paddock jackets in the mid-nineties.” A 400cc little brother of the RC45, the NC35 is still an enjoyable ride today thanks to sufficient power, a low seat height, and a relative lack of weight. This bike is very close to stock and while it has a few minor cosmetic issues, it stands out (at least for California residents) because it’s already plated here.
Basic specs were 60 horsepower, 27 lb-ft of torque, and a top speed of 125 miles per hour. I just rode a modified version of this bike’s predecessor (the NC30) at Laguna Seca and it was more fun than some of the modern bikes I got to spin laps with just because it’s so manageable. Sure, I got dusted by everyone in the straightaways, but this bike can claw it back in the corners and the little V4 sounds delightful. Check out MCN for more information.
This example has 19,750 miles and it’s been with the seller for 5 years. It’s currently registered in California and it just got a service that included new tires, rebuilt forks, oil/filter change, coolant flush, brake fluid change, new battery, and carb clean. Everything is said to work, and the bike is equipped with steel braided brake lines plus a Two Brothers slipon exhaust (good) and aftermarket front turn signals (not so good). While all the bodywork is original, the seller notes a few cosmetic issues and the “right side lower cowls” were repainted. Grab this and you won’t be afraid to put some miles on it!
