Honda NSR500 review
With more than 100 wins to its credit the Honda NSR500 is the most successful racing bike in modern Grand Prix history. Almost two decades of racing experience, painful failures and enormous amounts of money are contained in this motorbike – which paid off in no less than a total of ten GP world titles.
The Honda NSR500 is a race motorcycle from the Honda NSR series. It was created by HRC (Honda Racing Corporation) and debuted in 1984 for the Grand Prix motorcycle racing's 500 cc class. Honda won ten 500cc World Championships with the NSR500 from 1984 to present, six in a row 1994 to 1999. With more than 100 wins to its credit, the NSR500 is the most dominant force in modern Grand Prix motorcycle racing. The 1989 NSR500 that won Honda's third 500 World Championship with Eddie Lawson exemplifies the overwhelming power, acceleration and raw speed that has always been synonymous with Honda's 500 cc two-stroke V4.
Along with a balance shaft that neutralized the single crankshaft engines gyroscopic effects, the 1992 Honda NSR 500 motorcycles was a breakthrough. Emphasizing acceleration over sheer speed, Doohan used the "big-bang" engine to win five of the first seven 500 GrandPrix races of 1992. Although a badly broken leg denied Doohan`s bid for the 1992 World-Championship, he would not be denied for long. Beginning in 1994, Doohan and the NSR won five consecutive 500cc World Championships.
