RC51 Tops RIDER UK OWNER"S SURVEY
The SP-1 and SP-2 topped two categories for all Motorcycles in England (MAY 2012 issue):
Quote: Race-Bred equals highly strung? Well, possibly- but it doesn't have to mean unreliable as Honda's built-to-win-World-Superbikes demonstrate. Good sporting performance needs high-quality components that are put together with care, and that means a bike that's built to last. The last SP-2 was built in 2007: five years later owners still rate it as the most reliable bike in RIDER Power.
Quote: Top honors go to Honda's mighty race-bred SP-1/SP-2. And producing a slick gearbox for a high-power V-twin is a real feat of engineering.
Best Build Quality. Finished in Second Place behind 08' CBR 1000RR.
Quote: Last years build quality champion, the Honda SP-1/SP-2 has been overtaken by the CBR1000RR. More than half the bikes in the top 20 have wings on their tanks. It is the only Japanese manufacturer to have a bike in the top 20.
