The 165mph coffee machine!
No - it won't really make the coffee, but we've recently added another very special bike to our collection of Honda classics and we've parked it right next to the coffee machine! - Find out about our BRAND NEW SP-1.

Anybody who has visited Hunts recently can’t fail to have noticed our new Honda RC30 on display in the showroom and regular customers know that Managing Director John Brown is a true enthusiast, having a built up a small, but top quality collection of Honda classic bikes of his own.

A recent addition to the showroom is a brand new Honda VTR1000 SP1 from 2000 which sits beside our new customer relaxation area. The bike is from the first batch of SP1’s delivered to the UK and, like the RC30, it has never been run.

John takes up the story: 'The SP1 was destined to become a classic from the moment it was introduced. Though it was a true production model rather than a ‘homologation special’, it’s a very special bike in it’s own right sharing less than 10% of components with the Firestorm 1000. Alongside the SP1’s race successes they are a fantastic road bike and still feel very quick and handle beautifully. They were known as the RC51 in the USA so it makes an interesting comparison to our RC30 and shows how Honda’s superbikes developed from the late 1980’s through to the new millennium'.

You can have a good look at the SP1 whilst relaxing with a coffee in our new comfort area which is already proving to be a great success. John mentions 'A separate area for visitors to relax was something that we have wanted to incorporate into the showroom for some time. As well as free refreshments, you can surf the net or watch some bike racing on the flat screen TV we have installed'.
