|1987-99 Honda CBR1000F Hurricane|
|The Hurricane was more powerful than the CB1000 naked version that shared its basic motor, but less satisfying overall thanks to its top-end power bias.|
|It was no shabby handler, but it was undeniably heavy, which in the end can never be completely compensated for. The later models have those awful interconnected brakes.|
|The original '87-'88 bodywork was cutting-edge at the time. Now it looks mild, yet utterly distinctive in a good way. Later revisions are forgettable looking.|
Hurricanes were not exactly Swiss watches, but despite sometimes imprecise assembly, they held together well.
|The 1000 Hurricane was one of the last supersports bikes that was comfortable enough for use as a long-distance tourer.|
|The 1000 Hurricane is like a friendly St. Bernard...Enjoyable to meet once in a while, but not something I want to own.|
