The HondaCBR600 F2motorcycle, introduced in 1991 to replace the CBR600 Hurricane, or F1, was Honda's introduction into the modern sport bike age. Work on the second generation CBR began in the early ’89. Hurricane LPL Ishikawa would lead the development of the new bike, known internally as MV9, but which we also called the F2, an alphanumeric that would become its official name: cbr600f2.
Exertion began with meetings to discuss concepts and sketches for the new bike. Couple of months later, an F2 prototype was produced. Painted black, the meaner looking bike was faster than the blocky first generation bike. When tested, the F2 results were spectacular. The bike struck a balance where no other bike could achieve. Few motorcycles had the ability to do as much as the latest CBR could. Hence the creation of a powerful and attractive bike that is here to stay.
