1996 Honda CBR1000F

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.

Again the bike's looks were overhauled in 1992 with a more streamlined and modern looking bodywork added. The biggest change was the introduction of DCBS, Honda's Dual Combined Brake System. The DCBS system was introduced to assist rider braking where the front brake lever operates the front calipers but also proportionally applies the rear brake, while using the rear brake will engage one front caliper. Some riders received it as a blessing and a curse. Many enjoyed the improved braking and the reduction of rear brake lockup under hard usage while others criticized it for making the bike unpredictable if the brakes needed to be applied in a corner. Since then DCBS has evolved into a very popular addition to many Honda touring motorcycles. No major changes occurred after 1992.

1996 was the last production year for the CBR1000F in the United States with the release of the 1100XX.

1996 Honda CBR1000F

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.
