HONDA STARTS GET­TING RC

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

Honda were fed up with get­ting their arse kicked by Du­cati’s boom­ing V-twin in WSB and so cre­ated the RC45. The RC45 was lighter and more pow­er­ful than any 750cc racer be­fore and Honda had their sights set firmly on WSB glory in 1994 with Doug Polen and Aaron Slight (be­low). But it wasn’t un­til 1997, with John Kocin­ski, that the RC45 fi­nally lifted the WSB crown.
