Record price for Honda motorcycle
A box-fresh Honda RC213V-S has set a new record price for a Japanese motorcycle sold at auction when it achieved £182,500 via Collecting Cars.
The still-crated 2016 Honda has just one mile on the clock and was built as a MotoGP bike you could ride on the road when new. It’s powered by a 215hp 999cc V4 engine and weighs only 170kg.
Edward Lovett, founder of Collecting Cars, said: ‘Honda’s RC213V-S is a thrilling, exquisitely crafted machine, and this example attracted global attention and extremely competitive bidding on Collecting Cars. We are proud to have achieved yet another world-record sales price – this time for an incredible road-legal MotoGP that will be a jewel in the new owner’s collection.’
