Hoping to defend their 1980 makers title, the Honda team competed in the 1981 Endurance World Championships with the RS1000. Fitted with an air-cooled 4-cylinder DOHC 999cc engine capable of 150hp, the RS1000 featured all the latest Honda technology that had been fine-tuned during their domination of endurance racing in the late 70's. A unique aspect of the 1981 bike was specially designed cowling that had been slightly enlarged to reduce rider fatigue during the grueling races. Although unsuccessful in defending their 1980 title, the Honda team was able to take out both the prestigious Suzuka 8-Hour Endurance Race and the Bol d'Or 24 hour race.
