This was the NSR that Spencer was forced to defend his '83 title with. It was quite the engineering marvel on the outside, but on the inside it was an absolute albatross.
Not only was the 'tank' up top emitting heat from the pipes right into the riders' chest and face, but as the fuel load wore off in the belly pan, it offset the weight loss normally an advantage from burning off fuel late in the race. Thusly, it was like riding a fuel tanker that was half-full when it most counted, but the lower c of g normally gained at this point in the race was turned into a sloshing liquid tube.
But, what Honda, let alone, what 2-stroke with it's skin off doesn't still look like a work of Van Gogh art!?
