Is there a RZV500R RD500 Register ?
Where we can list Chassis numbers and locations so we know where they have all gone
I would be interested to know how many RZV500s are left in the world as im led to belive there was only 1600 made

Regards Neil

Hi,

@jackson40 - can you verify how many RD's made it into the UK? I run the RD/RZ UK Owners Facebook Group along with Geoff Wedge and we're quite strict on owners being UK only. Trouble is, we're getting 5-6 member requests a week and there were never that many RD500s in the UK!

If you add on a small percentage for RZ500 imports, we can arrive at a sensible figure for bikes in the UK.

Cheers.

Hi

I do know the exact numbers for all the UK bikes and their vin numbers plus all the Marlboro bikes which were unsold German stock.

Around 300 47X bikes and around 650 1GE bikes came to the UK in 1984/85.

I will have to add up how many of these bikes are still around, less than half at least.

Not many RZ500's have been brought in but around 100 RZV500R had been imported.

Hope this helps.

Steve

Whilst the owners may be UK based on your (brill) Facebook page, you need to factor in the fact many of the bikes they now own where not official UK bikes, I can think of myself and 3 others from the facebook page that fall into that bracket, the last year or two has seen hundreds if not 1000s of RDs from every capacity come into the UK from Europe. Thanks for managing the page along with Geoff anyway
