Description

Click here for an CycleVIN Motorcycle History Report on this 1994 Honda RC45. Additional photos are available here for your perusal.

The successor to the legendary RC30, Honda’s RC45 (or RVF750R) was a limited run homologation special created to help Honda re-establish supremacy in World Superbike. Like the RC30, the RC45 was powered by a liquid-cooled, 749cc, DOHC, 16V, four-stroke, 90-degree V4, though unlike its carbureted predecessor, the RC45 was bestowed with tunable electronic fuel-injection borrowed from the development of the NR750.

Even though the RC45 was built from 1994 to 1999, it was only officially sold in the US for its first year of production. In order to comply with WSBK homologation rules, 200 examples were produced the first year in ’94, followed by another 500 units made for the Japanese market. In total, just 50 units were built for the US market – today we’ve got #20.

This example is VIN: JH2RC450XRM000020.

The odometer shows 7,620 miles.

Friends of Iconic Motorbikes are familiar with RC45 #20 and have shared some pieces of its history. Based on the feedback we received, we believe that this bike was originally sold to a private party in Texas. It has had a few owners since, including a gentleman who also owned RC45s #2 and #44. The current owner acquired it from a private party in Florida in 2013.

Modifications:
A previous owner noted that this has the HRC PGM rewire modification done, which changes output from 101 for the US market to the full 118 of the European market. It also has a Two Brothers Racing exhaust.

Aftermarket wheels – they have Marchesini stickers on them, but we cannot confirm if that is accurate.

The rear fender has been removed. PLEASE NOTE: We have sourced a NOS rear fender that will be installed prior to shipping!

The sale includes the stock wheels (16″ front/17″ rear) and exhaust.

Cosmetic Blemishes:

There are some very minor rock chips on the front fairing and the front of the fork lowers – our White Glove service would be glad to make this bike perfect for the next owner.

The tires are from 2012 and 2013.

Before the listing, Steve installed OEM turn signals, installed a new fuel pump, and cleaned the fuel injectors.

Currently located at our facility in Santa Monica, California (please make an appointment for an inspection), this RC45 is offered on a clean Montana title. Have any RC45 stories or questions about this listing? Let us know in the comments!
