I almost bought one for a crazy Italian friend in Toronto a few years ago. What stopped us was that Japanese spec ones (With a light lenz in the duct either side - that's the obvious sign) are only 75 bhp. European ones were 125 bhp as standard. At the time I think we were looking at 4 examples for sale from around 3,400,000 - 4,000,000. When I inquired, no dealer was willing to discount.
I also know of one that's been sitting in a shop window of a small local Honda dealer for years - it's not for sale. Saw another in a dealer's place (was closed at the time) not far from me - probably not for sale either. Cool bikes though. Apparently the ride is not dissimilar to a VFR750 which is 100 bhp. Probably better suspension though. I think the exhaust is full Titanium too, but I can't be sure. You'd expect so as these cost over 25,000 GBP in England when new back in the day.
