Overview:

Released in Europe. Used by Fly'n Fred Merkel to win inaugural World Superbike (WSB) Title. Big news is the "Elf Designed" PRO-ARM (single sided) rear swingarm. The bike sported a 3.0x17" front and a 5.5x18" rear wheel (held in place by a single nut), 41mm forks with no apparent anti-dive, completely new bodywork w/solo saddle and dual headlights, 4/2/1 (left side) exhaust, engine changed back to a 360x crank, gear driven cams, Titanium connecting rods and valve components.

The bike was (is) lighter and more compact in every way from the VFR700/750Fs. New brakes were mounted but still "gold" painted. Color (or Colour in U.K. English - hey it wasn't American yet!) was white with light blue, dark blue and red stripes with gold pinstripes separating the bands of color and red # plates) Note: The European models sported the designation VFR750R on the side panel number plates with no mention of RC30.

This bike was not available for sale in the USA.
