Three new super bike additions to be added to the Lakeland Motor Museum collection

Prepare to experience three 80’s and 90’s superbike legends, soon to be arriving at the Lakeland Motor Museum to join their ever expanding line-up.

A Honda RVF750, known to some as the RC45, has been temporarily granted to the motoring attraction by the late owner’s family and has covered only 6,600 miles from new. Known to be a very desirable bike back in the 1990's, this spectacular machine is one of only 200 to ever have been built and sold around the world.

Covering ¼ of a mile in just 11.1 seconds back in its day and with the ability to reach a top speed of 160mph, the RC45 has gone down in history as one of the best made Honda motorcycles ever.

Joining the RC45 will be a 1985 Ducati 900 2s and a 1991 Ducati 851 SP3. These classic Italian beauties will add a distinct new aspect to the museum’s selection of bikes - which now dates back as far as 110 years!

Chris Lowe, the lucky manager of the museum said: “We’re thrilled to welcome three of the world's most desirable sport motorcycles to our display. Visitors are always excited by supreme examples of speed and power, and it’s great to add to an ever-changing collection which now includes a total of more than 90 motorcycles.”
