Additional photos of this 2016 Honda RC213V-S are available here for your perusal.
When Honda officially announced the RC213V-S in June of 2015, every publication called it the same thing: a MotoGP bike for the street. As MCN put it, “The long-awaited Honda RC213V-S really is a MotoGP bike with lights and as close to the real thing as is practical and affordable. It’s tiny, like an NC30, and floats effortlessly around a track.”
The name continues Honda’s trend of the “RC” prefix for works bikes, and 213V-S breaks down to 21st century, 3rd Version – Street.
Honda announced that their plan was to hand-build one a day with a maximum run of 250 bikes. Unfortunately, the 2016 Fukushima earthquake and tsunami affected production and roughly 125 were built.
As you would assume on a bike this incredible, the components were just about as good as it got for the time – Honda claimed that the Brembo braking components (with the exception of 5.5mm steel rotors and pads) were the same as what they used on their MotoGP bike. That was paired with forged Marchesini magnesium wheels as well as an Ohlins TTX25 fork and TTX36 shock, and it all hung off a frame built by Moriwaki.
Euro-spec bikes produced 159 horsepower, while US bikes produced 101 and Japanese models produced 68. Back to MCN: “In standard trim it promises to be a sublime road bike and is reminiscent of an RC30, even if it’s slightly docile on a circuit. But with the optional Sports Kit fitted it’s something very special.” Lucky for you, this Euro-spec bike comes with the Sports Kit.
This example is VIN: JH2SC75A8GK000070, Serial #: 96.
It has not been out of the original Honda delivery crate. This is a “zero mile” bike which may have delivery miles but it has never been started since it was put in the crate. We disassembled the crate for photos and to verify the motorcycle’s condition but we put the crate back together for storage purposes and that is how the bike sits for the sale.
This bike is completely stock.
We did not see any blemishes of note.
It is riding on the original Bridgestone RS10 tires.
The sale includes all the pieces that came with the bike when new: two keys, the original battery acid, a book, battery tender, tools, and the leather owner’s manual pouch.
It also includes a certificate provided to original owner which states “Honda’s new challenge to create a street-legal version of its RC213V MotoGP machine led to the birth of the revolutionary RC213V-S – an absolute MotoGP machine for the street.” The original owner’s name is blank and waiting for you!
The sale includes the factory HRC Sports Kit (race kit) in its original packaging. The race kit (which was never officially exported to the US) boosts power from 159 hp to 215 hp.
We are leaving the race kit in the box, however here is a video we did from a previous RC213V-S race kit so you can see what is included:
Our White Glove service has installed a race kit on a different zero mile RC213V-S before (Serial #97, in fact) and would be glad to do it again if the next owner desires:
