    There's an NR750RR on display in Brussels, car museum in Jubelpark. Was donated by Honda.
    It's there together with a yellow Jordan Honda F1. Went looking to them already twice.
    My second ride on a bike ever (as passenger!) was on that first generation CBR900RR. I will never ever forget this. What a thrill.
    My first ride ever was on a Yamaha XT600.... talking about 'a difference':Rolf:.

    never saw or heard of oval pistons too but if you think about it you will see that they would need less space in the size of the top block. as smaller diameter oval would be less area for the same amount of bore, correct me if you think different :Smile:

    Think it was done so they could get 8 valves per cylinder; also to show that Honda could do what no-one else could. Pity the racer was a flop.
    Greatest Honda ever has to be the 50/90 - more built than any other vehicle ever I believe (I've got a 46 year old 90)

    I really loved my little CB400F (one of the first in the UK, 1975). Best little runabout bike I ever had.

    1. The original (1999?) Insight. Looked fantastic, with brand new tech. I still want one today :Thumbup:
    2. NSX. Looks superb, and associated with Ayrton Senna. A wonderful, wonderful thing - especially the earlier versions with pop up headlights.
    3. 7th Generation Accord. Perhaps the impact of the advertising, but still a great car, especially the 2.4.

  19. It's still going, but not as effective. I think they're about £2K to be fair
