Love those. Great pics too. Didn't they do a short production run of them with a retail of about £8.5k?

I believe that when honda scrapped their mountainbike racing plans

they actually scrapped and crushed all the bikes they made for racing

I dont think there are any left alive!!

Would love to be wrong because I think they are stunning

That sounds like Honda. In mx only the championship winning bike ever survived and was given to the rider. The rest faced the skip or the crusher.

I saw its predecessor at the world champs in Fort William in 2007. That looked awesome. This one above is even better.

They definitely scrapped them all. They don't like to let competitors benefit from their invested millions of Yen by stealing their ideas!

The Honda RN01 was always classed as an R&D project so when Honda pulled out of DH they were all sent to the crusher, other then the ones that got stolen over the years. They never produced a production model. :(
