The Honda RC 51 goes by two other names. In the United States it is known as RVT1000R while in Europe and Australia, it is called VTR1000. Whatever name it is known by, however, it has a reputation for having lots of torque, good handling, and a liquid-cooled engine that turned this 999 cc motorcycle into one that was fun to ride. The Honda RC 51, especially the Edwards and Hayden replicas, remains sought after today but are reportedly hard to find. Rider forums rate the RC 51 highest in performance, and quality and reliability, with ratings almost as high for ride and comfort, and value. The RC 51 was a high performance machine that performed poorly when it came to fuel consumption, however. Although official gas mileage statistics are not available, riders report having to fill up the 4.8-gallon tank about every 100 miles. In 2004, the RC 51 was available in red or metallic silver.
