The Honda RC30, otherwise known as the VFR750R, was a fully faired superbike created to conform to homologation rules for the World Superbike championship.

The 749 cc engine of the Honda RC30 was made up of several race derived components, including titanium connecting rods, gear driven camshafts, and quick release wheel and brake pads.

The Honda RC30 was fitted with fully adjustable Showa suspension for superior handling characteristics, combined with a low-mounted engine and fuel tank - which in turn created a low centre of gravity - the RC30 was one of the best handling bikes in its day.

The Honda RC30 was brought to European and Asian markets in 1988, America had to wait until 1990. A high asking price, almost double that of similar 750 sports bikes, and limited production run helped ensure the RC30's exclusivity.

The Honda RC30 was replaced by the RVF750 RC45 in 1994.
