Following the VFR750R (RC30) superbike's arrival in the late 1980s, it was only to be expected that some of its style and technology would rub off on Honda's smaller V4s. The first of these was the NC21, which was followed by the NC24 with RC30-style single-sided swinging arm. Restricted to a maximum of 59PS (59.8bhp) for the Japanese market, they were not officially imported into the UK, unlike the successor NC30, which boasted a specification not far short of the RC's: alloy beam frame, single-sided swinger, close-ratio gearbox, twin-lamp fairing, RC-type brakes and a 360-degree crankshaft; a class-leading specification justified by the fact that Honda had it sights set on the Isle of Man TT's Supersport 400 class. Boasting RC30 looks and equal build quality, but at a fraction of the cost, the NC30 is one of the most collectible classics of the 1990s.

Imported into the UK in 1997, this NC30 currently displays a total of 41,209km (25,605 miles) on the odometer. We are advised by the private vendor that a full service and repairs was carried out in 2018 and 2019, and that the machine is in generally very good condition, having last run in February 2020. The only notified deviations from factory specification are a Tyga sports exhaust and a Nitron shock absorber. Accompanying paperwork consists of sundry bills, a V5C document, and MoTs dating back to 2001.
