THANKS NC30!

What Honda’s fab­u­lous 400 gave us

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Feature -

GREY IM­PORTS

Yes, the VFR400R was an of­fi­cial im­port (@£5899!) but as a grey it was less than £3k and sparked a whole wave of ex­otic ar­rivals.

A MINI RC30

Pre­vi­ous 400Rs, such as the NC24, were sweet enough but the 30 was a mini replica of the ex­otic, un­reach­able VFR750R.

EQUAL OP­POR­TU­NI­TIES

Women and smaller rid­ers loved the bike's di­men­sions and light agility. Danielle Wykes, pic­tured be­low, was just one of them.

TT DREAMS

The NC isn’t just a replica of the most suc­cess­ful TT bike ever, it was raced there, too, by the likes of Foggy, Jefferies and Hizzy.
