Race replica’s for the road are commonplace these days, roll up to the cafe (in none corona times anyway) and there will be many race reps from Repsol fireblades, to various Suzuki variants. Chances are though you won’t find arguably THE best race replica ever made. It feels awkward to call it a replica because this is as near as the Moto GP machinery as you can get without having the last name of Marquez.
It shows the rarity and the cult status of the RCV by the fact this 2016 model still has an eye-watering price tag of £219,995. That is almost the price of three Ducati Superleggera V4 models, for older tech. Despite this the tech side doesn’t really matter, the bike is as original with the HRC kit, and has covered 0 miles, the ultimate kitchen ornament?
The bike for sale is number 007, and is in stunning condition, complete with the HRC kit which includes the revised exhausts, and ECU to generate even more power than the standard model, the data logger module, and HRC paddock stands and covers.
While the bike is an old 2016 model, Honda still favours this. Two weeks ago at the private Moto GP test, the HRC contracted riders had their own RCV-213v-S to use on the test. Presumably, as the RCV is the closest bike ‘in the Honda range’ which also happens to possess the V4 powerplant, allowing the riders to get used to the V4’s traits. Sure the tech and power from a 2021 Fireblade may be more, but there is a big difference between the V4 and Inline 4 engines. Honda must have a room full off RCV’s just to wheel out for such events.
