CAN’T FIND AN RVF400?
Honda VFR400R NC30
Once so cheap you couldn’t give them away in a box of cornflakes, the NC30 – even straggly grey import examples – are now building up value. UK bikes are particularly prized. There’s still a huge gulf between what sellers are asking and buyers are paying, mind, but it shows how the 30 is admired against the 35. There’s no compelling reason to go for one or the other; a stock NC35 has far better suspension and handling than a standard NC30. But a VFR400 has a marginally livelier motor; ultimately it’s a personal choice.
