Launched in 1981 as Honda's first homologated production road/race bike it was raced on tracks by Ron Haslam (Our Honarary Club President), Joey Dunlop & Wayne Gardner dominating production racing for the next few years. The bike was so successful in the Castrol 6 hour races in Australia that the organisers sought to have the bike banned! In the MCN Streetbike championship in 1981 (the forerunner of what was eventually to be the British Superbike Championship) Rocket Ron won 11 out of the 12 rounds on this bike. The single race Ron didn't win was because he was so far ahead he was getting bored and decided to go for the lap record and was doing well until he came off. having established such a lead Ron was still able to remount and managed to finish 2nd.
The bike was sold during 1981 - 1050 RB bikes, 1982 - 1500 RC bikes, and 1983 1500 RD bikes and as Honda's first Production Race Bike with such limited numbers they are now highly collectable and sought after commanding prices anywher between £10,000 to the mid to late £20,000 region.
