    Then the more restrictive rules came in and Honda had to start with a production bike rather than a prototype. Hence the RVF750R (RC45) was developed with an all new engine. 

     

     

     

    First the RVF prototype then production RVF750

     

    Mr.Honda, the consummate engineer, never waived from his dream of
    racing a 4 stroke designed by his employees built solely under the
    roof of his Japanese factory... he petitioned the ruling bodies to
    allow 750cc 4 strokes to compete with the 500cc 2 strokes... so under
    his command HRC designed the RVF750 to be 85% Gp machines for its
    respective period... the Old Man understood that if his plan to fill
    the dwindling Gp grids with his RVF works 4 stroke machines fell short
    he would undoubtable produce one soundly competitive WSBK machine...
    From 1990 on Mick Doohan and Wayne Gardner had a direct input in the
    development of the RVF750 works machines... If you want know what a
    Honda 750 4 stroke Gp racer feels like then the RC45 is for you...

    Awesome bikes. 

     

    Shame that Honda called the RC45 an RVF though rather than keep it as a VFR,

     

     

    Mercy not a shame because according to HRC the RC30 engine is a modified street design hence VFR750R whereas the RC45 is a totally fresh designed hence RVF750...
