Classic Honda RS 1000 Endurance Racer Model Kit 1/12Tamiya
Honda's Hard-Working 1981 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, which itself had heritage from the RCB1000. 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.
