The RC30 appeared in 1987. It was a road bike designed for the racetrack

The World Superbike championship for production-based bikes was kicking off and Honda wanted to win. It did, clocking up Isle of Man TT, World Endurance, and hundreds of national race wins to boot

The V-four engined bike was compact, clever, and beautifully engineered. The single-sided swingarm, intricate four-into-one exhaust system, and gear-driven camshafts were things of beauty
