We obviously love our Honda RC30s here – we’ve sold over 20 of them in the last year and change. But even for us, this one’s pretty special as it’s a Swiss model. What’s different about Switzerland, you ask? Well, RC30s sold new in that country had three distinct changes from other markets:

1.) 77 horsepower cap just like the JDM bikes (done via RPM restriction in the CDI). See where the redline starts on the tach? Please note that the restriction has been removed on this example.

2.) Wider (3.5″) Enkei front wheel. The rest of the world had a 3″ front wheel.

3.) Most distinctively, a solo square headlight.

The seller of this example (VIN: RC30-2001301) is Jan Ringnalda of Mr. CBX, and he acquired this RC30 over 15 years ago from a Swiss dealership when he was living in Holland. He moved to the US approximately 10 years ago and brought the bike with him.

During that time, he’s covered less than 1000 miles with it. The odometer now shows 13,686 kilometers (8,504 miles).

It is completely stock and includes the OEM rear wheel stand.

Mr. CBX recently recommissioned it with an oil/filter change, brake fluid flush, new battery, and carb rebuild.

The seller notes some minor cosmetic issues: a slight imperfection on the exhaust which was there when he purchased the motorcycles, as well as a small mark on the right rear tail and a couple of chips on the right front fairing that were both from shipping.
