The Honda RC5… err.. RC30.


UPDATE:  It’s an RC30 obviously.  What happens when you rush I suppose…

I don’t post a lot of plastic sided sportbikes but it’s easy to make an exception for this beauty.  Another one from Riding Into History in St Augustine Florida last weekend.

A Yamaha R15. An interesting modern small displacement sportbike from India.


I never heard of this bike until Kotty sent this to me. What an excellent small displacement ride. At first glance, I honestly almost skipped over it thinking it was just a stock R6. But the photography caught my eye and then I realized it was no 600. It’s a shame that we don’t appreciate these bikes here in the US. I know, big distances and all that but it’d be a heck of a city bike and if we had sensible restricted displacement licensing laws every kid in town would be on one. and it certainly would compete with the expensive all electric bikes that are going to be shoved down our throats in the near future. Bike specs and such can be found HERE
