A rare Honda SP1 (RC51)


Honda's attempt to out Ducati Ducati and a dam good one.

I saw this advertised on OLX. Very unusual.

  • I saw this on OLX for sale. The asking price is 410,000 pesos ($7800) Not a great deal of money for what I believe to be one of the most beautiful bikes ever made. F4 750 S The mass production model, the F4 750 S (S = "Strada"), was released in 1999, and was essentially the same bike as the F4 750 Oro but with aluminium pieces in place of magnesium. Both of these bikes produced 126 hp (94 kW) 101.78 rear horsepower, with a 13300 rpm redline. Top speed is estimated at 170 mph (273 km/h) @ 12800 rpm, 0–100 km/h estimated at 3.1 seconds, quarter mile 10.98 seconds @ 131 mph (211 km/h).The F4 750 uses a 49 mm Showa front fork and Sachs rear suspension. The F4 750 also comes in a 1+1 (Biposto) model, which has a pillion for a passenger.
