One of the best sounding bikes ever and one of the many features that made me fall in love with the RC51.

Is it spring yet? I miss riding mine

I agree that's a nice sounding RC51, but frankly my favorite Honda is the RC166.
It has the most glorious sound of just about any motorcycle.
In the video, the rider is mostly babying the engine (and rightly so).
When at it's full 18000 RPM, it sends shivers down ones spine.
Turn the volume up and listen to what a truly old school Honda GP bike sounds like.

Yeah that RC166 does have a sound all its own. I was fortunate enough to witness the sound up close and personal at Laguna one year. As Sub said, the sound sends shivers up the back.......wish I could get my CBX to sound that way.
