NR750 Videos

These are a 4 part video series on the NR750 oval piston bike make in 1991.
It also mentions about the NR750's predecessors, the NR500 (and the NR250 twin-turbo v-twin).

Unfortunately it's mostly in German, except for the 1st part where it has english annotations.

However, it does describe the inners workings, and and shows the servicing of the NR750, which is something I've never seen.

I saw these bikes at Motegi's museum too...
I love the NR750. It's a work of art purely to show off what Honda could do when money was no object. Incredible machine. Capable of 175 bhp with the HRC ECU, so I heard??? .

Here's a few pics.

And this was the one I stumbled upon in a park near a cemetry in Shizuoka overlooking Fuji Raceway with Fuji just beside.... It's where Sochiro Honda's grave is.

Must be the roughest NR750 in existence. Did think about offering to swap my RC for this for all of around 10 seconds before coming to my senses. Would have been rightful to restore it. Looked like it was used in all weathers and had done much mileage. Owned by some crazy rich Japanese dude, probably.
Sochiro might have turned in his grave had he not been cremated.

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.

Looking at the service portion of the videos, I can see a huge carry over between the NR750 and the VFR 750/800 engine designs.
If it wasn't for the oval pistons, you'd a swear it was a VFR service video.

Actually, I stumbled over these videos as I was trying to find a video on the NR750R endurance racer, based on the NR750.
