The Honda CBR1000F, also known as the Hurricane, was an excellent sport-tourer that introduced some crucial technology into the Honda lineup. It eventually evolved into the well-known Blackbird. Oh yeah, and it had one of the greatest names in motorcycling history.

Available in 1000cc and 600cc versions, the design of the bigger bike has aged a bit better with time. Though on the portly side (over 500 pounds), it had 130 horsepower to back it up. Times have changed, and what used to be a bike too heavy for anything more than stoplight pulls and fast sweepers has now become a widely-accepted classic sport touring bike. There’s only one mechanical issue you have to worry about on an otherwise very reliable bike. These bikes are known for noisy camchain tensioners. Most rattle when cold, but once the engine fills with oil, you should be okay.
