Interesting. I was involved in most of the testing mentioned in the article including the Moriwaki exhausts and the prototype Sato's as well and never even knew that article existed.

My new wife just busted out that exact magazine and I read the article the other night. She got the issue back before she was a rider and was just oogling bikes. August 2009. That "old magazine" has been spared from the depths of the landfill.

Old RC51 article

Honda RC51 (RVT1000R) - Great Sportbikes of the Past | Sport Rider

I was posting to the author of this article earlier, thought I'd pass it along.
Since it's from 2009, some of you may have seen it already, but it was new to me, so...
