|Honda RS1000 Endurance Racer|
From their endurance racing debut in 1976 until 1980 Honda received excellent service from the dominant RCB1000, but in 1980 it was decided to switch to the RS1000. As a base, it used the CB900F. The RS1000 utilized an air-cooled 4-stroke DOHC 4-cylinder powerplant that in its 999cc 1981 spec offered 130hp. In 1980 the bike showed what it was made of, taking a glorious championship, and while it failed to repeat in 1981 it demonstrated there was still plenty of gas in the tank by taking the 8 Hour race in Suzuka, Japan, and coming in second in the overall rankings on the season.
