Launched in 1987 the Honda CBR1000F Hurricane instantly gained attention from the worlds bike media for its massive amounts of fairing usage and at the time, high powered sport touring capabilities. Powered by the well proven liquid cooled, DOHC, 998cc, 16 valve four cylinder, it crossed the 130bhp barrier and was capable of 161 mph in the right conditions.
The Hurricane received a cosmetic makeover in 1989 with a complete redesign of the front fairing, improvements to the front suspension, larger tires were added to help cope with the bike's weight and to accommodate radial tires, improvements were also added to the bikes cam chain tensioner in an attempt to remove the annoying cam chain rattle some riders had reported. The 1989 model also had its power slightly increased to around 135bhp and the model gained a few pounds in weight.

The original Honda CBR600F concept, known as the Honda Hurricane through 1987 and 1988, was the platform of today's entire Honda CBR line. The CBR1000F Hurricane was on the market from 1987 through 1999. 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.
