2006 RC-51 looks sweet.

I haven't been bored enough to look at the RC-51's color this year(yeah, I think it was the same last year but whatever), and I'm sure this has already been covered 10 times. But man! It looks sweetolicious this year. I hope someone backs over my bike and ruins everything so I can get all that put on my bike.



EDIT: Why the poo do they keep jacking up the price of the RC-51? It's like they are content as long as it always costs more than the CBR.

'02 RC-51
'10 Unicycle

It's a relic. People pay more for antiques.

Any Improvements???

Still in the Right Hands is a HELL of a contender...I have seen RC-51's Dominate over open class LItre Bikes, however it is usually with an Serious Expert rider who has alot of saddle time on a Twin Litre. Most others I see try to race those things end up in the high side club.

It's indirect discouragement. Since they can't get people to stop loving and buying the fat pig of a gal, they are over pricing her to price her out of the market.

Still a good lookin bike after all these years. Despite its weight it rails around corners and that motor pulls like a locomotive, made an impression on me. Ultimately I went the light is right routine with my '06 Gix750 but my old RC made an indelible impression, come to think of it , 'character' yeah that is what differentiates it from the rest. I'd buy another one, black looks sweet, maybe Nicky would buy it if I store it and sell it to him in 20 years as a true classic.

I just bought mine from a dealer about 3 weeks ago. It is an 05 and had been seating on showroom floor for 18 months (new leftover).......$9500........a good deal.

This bike is awsome.

But it is not a squid machine.

It is a bike for mature law obiding motorcyclists like me hum...hum...hum...
