Flashbacks to racing in the 60's, where Honda had a legendary masterpiece to date, the RC149. From the name, we might expect a 150 cc motorcycles, but Honda RC149 uses a 125 cc engine. Nevertheless, the speed of the Honda RC149 arguably the most insane in the world, even to this day.
Honda RC149 uses a 5-cylinder engine. Although it was included on the underbone class today, but do not ask about its power. 4-stroke motorcycle with weight 'only' 85 kg can be driven up to 21,000 rpm and combined with 9-speed transmission system, it could reach a maximum speed of over 210 kph.
