The revolution that started it all. The 1987 Honda CBR600F, nicknamed the Honda Hurricane, is the perfect example of being at the right place at the right time.

It's introduction to the world coincided with the debut of the AMA 600cc Supersport roadracing class. Honda came out on top in all nine races, making it a much sought-after street bike for real-world enthusiasts. The fact that the Honda Hurricane performed so well in competition greatly helped their already aggressive marketing campaign. The Honda Hurricane was the first 600cc production bike that could run under 11 seconds in the quarter mile, it weighed 20 pounds less and produced 10 more horsepower than it's closest competitor.

For the first three years of production, the CBR600F Hurricane saw almost zero competition from the 600cc class of sportbikes. Honda effectively out-sold the Kawasaki Ninja and the Suzuki Katana, which is exactly what they set out to do.

The CBR600F was released in 1987 alongside it's big brother, the CBR1000F.

The original Honda Hurricane concept was the platform of today's Honda CBR line. The line has certainly improved over the years but one thing remains the same - Honda has consistently produced high performance, well-bred and affordable sportbikes - and it all started with the 1987 Hurricane.
