Honda was ahead of its time when it debuted the Hawk GT, also known as the NT650. It was one of the world’s first modern naked bikes but it was a commercial failure. Over the years, many riders have realized what the Hawk offered, and it’s become a cult classic. This one’s guaranteed to find a new home and the bidding is very low with less than a day to go so someone might get a steal!
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.
This example (VIN: JH2RC3103JM001207) has 14,535 miles. It features Two Brothers Racing equal length headers (ceramic coated by Jet-Hot), Two Brothers Racing carbon fiber muffler, and a battery tender. It was also repainted with some scratches in the paint, a dent in the front of the tank, and a missing center stand.
