The Honda CBR600F, originally known as the 'Hurricane', is a sports motorcycle made from 1987-1990.[1] It was Honda's first inline 4-cylinder fully faired sportbike. It has a liquid cooled Template:Convert/hp DOHC 16-valve Inline 4, and a 6-speed transmission. The Honda Hurricane was introduced as the newest style of sportbike, its smooth body lines were complimented by its angular form, providing the hurricane with some of the best aerodynamic properties of its time, and it changed the way sportbikes were built. The Hurricane was also the first 0.6L sport bike to cross a quarter mile in less than 11 seconds, and with all Template:Convert/hp screaming away at 11,000 rpm (max rpm of 12,000) the Honda Hurricane was one of the most intense sport motorcycles of its time. CBR600's have been built in its fairing-clad sleek image ever since.
