【 Look Inside the Upside-Down Layout 】 Despite having taken the 1983 500cc Road Racing World Championship Grand Prix Riders' Championship on the 2-stroke V3 engine NS500, Honda did not rest on their laurels, developing their own 4-cylinder engine. The engine was installed into the NSR500, aiming at continuing the Japanese team's success in the following 1984 season. What really got people talking, however, were a unique aluminum frame to house the engine and a radical layout in which the expansion chambers and the fuel tank were positioned above and below the engine respectively. Come the 1984 season, 3 victories for F. Spencer and 1 for R. Mamola proved that the bike had substance as well as style. This model features clear cowl parts to enable you to get a good look at the unique layout which captivated the bike racing world.
