Honda RVF400 (1994 - 1996)

The Honda RVF400 is a small-sized sports bike with a lot of things to offer. It is a reliable, fun to ride machine equipped with a powerful 400cc V4 engine that offers enough performance for all types of riding styles.

It comes with a stiff aluminium frame, single sided swingarm and big brakes. The build quality is excellent and you will be able to get a very high mileage out of this bike. Thanks to its lightweight construction and aerodynamic design, the Honda RVF400 can perform well on track. Additionally, its awesome handling and lower seat height make it an ideal bike for beginner riders.

Unfortunately, the 1994 Honda RVF400 NC35 was never officially brought into the UK and the bikes you will find on eBay have been imported. It is a big shame, because in the 90s, it was one of the best bikes in the category.
