Friday bike

Thinking about a new sportsbike for the summer? Have some spare cash in your bank account? Then this could be the bike for you.

Honda RC213V-S

The RC213V-S is a road going version on Honda's Moto GP bike. Built as one of those 'look what we can do' projects, like the NR back in 1979, the RC213V-S is bound to equally unlikely to be seen outside of a private collection, and almost certainly not on the road.

There has been some speculation as to price, but the latest figures I could find were:

      21.9 million Yen = £114,000 = 157,000 Euros = US$ 177,000.

Honda will be taking orders from 13th July, and as they are only going to be building a limited number, be sure to get your order in early to avoid disappointment.
To put the price into perspective, you could buy a Yamaha R1M, a BMW S1000RR, Kawasaki H2, a Ducati Panigale R, and an Aprilia RSV4 RF, and still have money left over!
