Single sided swingarm

What was the first single sided swingarm on a production motorcycle? (And this is sportbike trivia, so I don't want to hear about some 1935 shit pooper no name that I have never heard of )

I believe it may be the 1987 VFR. I could verify it if it's important.

'AKA' RC30

I can't think of anything older?

91 VFR 750. I don't remember when the RC-30 came out and I don't really consider it a production bike.

88 RC30. And yes, it was a production bike. All WSB contenders must be a "production" bike or they have to build at least 150 of them. I remember seeing one for sale at at local dealer.

You're wrong, and yes it is something you've probably never heard of. I'll stop now. I'm disqualifying myself from anymore of these "triva" questions. Hint: it aint Japanese, it's German.
