Yeah. Those sold for $60K new, back in 1992. I think Honda only made about 200 of them (150 for Japan, and 50 in Europe).

Though it was never sold here, there are about 6 of them in the US, Michael Mann owns one, Nicolas Cage has another.

Yep. I spoke with one of the partners in that shop today, just for fun. He told me they have a *brand new* Japanese model that has never been started! :eek:

They even have an RC45 there for about $19K...

That's the one with the oval pistons. It would be fun to ride. Plus, I think it looks fine, like a Honda VFR.
Actually, the ('94-'97) VFR looks like this bike. They definitely took some styling cues from the NR750 for the VFR.

If I remember correctly, Loris Capirossi had one of these NRs close to 200 mph. I think his average speed (with and against the wind) was 186. :smash:

Plus it has 8 valves and 20,000 RPM.
Right. But there are jackasses out there who would refuse to consider it an exotic, simply because it's a Honda... :crazy: :lol:
