Today on the auction site we’ve got a rare Honda Hawk with engine upgrades and RC30 bodywork from the folks at Two Brothers!
The Hawk’s been a cult classic for decades – it was ahead of its time but it was also a commercial failure. Honda advertised the Hawk as “a thoughtful blend of European styling, American V-Twin muscle, and a Honda trademark – technological sophistication.” That makes sense nowadays in a world full of SV650s and Ducati Monsters, but when this bike was released American riders wanted power and they wanted fairings – a 600 Hurricane had 30 more horsepower and all the plastic bodywork one could want for just $400 more than the Hawk’s $3,598 MSRP. For more on the Hawk, check out this article on Canyon Chasers where they call it one of their favorite motorcycles of all time because of the sublime handling.
This example takes it to 11 as it features a 700cc motor with upgraded internals that’s dyno’d between 65-70 horsepower, Two Brothers exhaust, Ohlins steering damper and rear shock, a RC30 front end, and RC30 bodywork! It’s an impressive example of a beloved bike that some riders have started to go classic racing with.
