1966 Honda RC166 250cc 6-cylinder Racing Bike – 64hp 18,000RPM Monster


This video has been sent by Azizul Ab Aziz at MM FB fan page earlier. It features a bike that I have never seen before, the 1966 Honda RC166. It make me thinks that technology in the past are far more interesting that what we have now. Today, it is always about cutting cost, maximum profit and environment-friendly (not that I’m against it). Sometimes we need to satisfy our need of power at the dispense of our control like this small bike with monster heart. It sounded like what race bike should sound. Solid and powerful. It revs all the way to 18,000RPM. This is my dream 250cc bike.
