Additional photos of this 1995 Honda RVF400 NC35 are available here for your perusal.

In 1994, Honda introduced the RVF400, or NC35. Successor to the VFR400 (not confusing at all), the NC35 was two things: a mini-me of the legendary RC45 and one of the greatest 400s ever built. Just like its 750cc big brother, the NC35’s fit and finish was top-notch, and the model had all the trappings of a full-size superbike in a potent 400cc package.

Think about what a 400cc sportbike means nowadays – then look at what this offered over 20 years ago with the single-sided swingarm, V4 motor, endurance racer-inspired air ducts, and gear-driven cams! The NC35 made it clear that small displacement bikes didn’t have to be cheap. In addition to all the nice details above, the liquid-cooled, DOHC, 90-degree, 399cc V4 with four-valves per cylinder, gear-driven cams, and quad 28mm carbs that made just shy of 60hp at 13,000rpm. A 2020 Kawasaki Ninja 400 (still a very fun bike!) makes 45.

Never officially sold outside of the Japanese market, the RVF400 featured a V4 engine in an aluminum twin-spar frame paired with upside-down 41mm Showa forks and a monoshock out back. Dual front discs with Nissin calipers help to slow the 400 from its roughly 125 mph top speed.

This example is VIN: NC351004986. The odometer shows 19,359 kilometers (12,029 miles).

Modifications:
TYGA RC45-style solo seat. The original tail is included but it will need paintwork.

Yoshimura RS-3 exhaust.

Carbon fiber front fender.

Carbon fiber-look dash cover.

Aftermarket windscreen.

Cosmetic Blemishes:








It is missing the inner fairing skirts that go between the fairings and the frame. Aftermarket replacements are available.

It is riding on Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa tires with date codes of 3920 and 0121.

The carbs were recently rebuilt with OEM gaskets and LiteTek O-rings. Adam saw this bike in person and says it’s “not a perfect bike by any means but it shows quite well and would make a great rider.”
