I have a pretty early 2000 RC51 serial 000251, incidentally, an Initial dyno showed 122 hp at the rear wheel which was unusual for a stock unit since three other 2000 RC51’s before me showed 119 hp? It was my “swan song” bike as I had raced for 40 years and wanted something I could ride on the road and have fun at the track. I was still racing in the AHRMA vintage series in 2000 so couldn’t resist entering in the BOTT F1 unlimited with my RC. I had the bike remapped and took it to Daytona,What a blast, I knew I had made the right choice for a bike to retire with. A fantastic bike which makes me giggle like a school boy every time I ride it.
